We stayed here two nights on our tour of South Africa. The log walls and stained-glass windows give the place a lot of charm. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. We were on the top floor, so got a bit of exercise going up and down - not a problem for us but you should request a lower floor if you have problems with stairs. The staff was friendly and helpful. Six of us decided to play cards outside (just out the door at the back) and everything we needed was there in a flash.
Breakfast was great and we were able to make good use of the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. We ate supper at the restaurant across the road (Olde's Pub & Grill) and had a fantastic meal at a great price.
The location is great. It is a short walk from the waterfront shops and restaurants in one direction and a modern mall in the other. Hint: On our 29-day trip of South Africa, Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls) and Kenya, Knysna had the best shopping - great selection with lower prices than Sandton or Cape Town (the 2 other places we had time to shop).
