Reviewed May 29, 2013

The rooms are immaculately clean. The service staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great too. The views are beautiful, be prepared for a bit of a walk into town though. I was just dissapointed to find that the "free wifi" wasn't working at all.

cheap place considering how expensive the rest of knysna is. average accommodation, not within walking distance from where you want to be and can get a little hot in there but reasonably comfortable. okay views from the room.

Finding affordable accommodation during SA's peak holiday season can be quite a challenge, but this place makes it possible. Great location, beautiful views and delicious breakfast. Unfortunately, the room is so HOT and STUFFY, you can hardly breathe, and sleeping is quite unpleasant if you constantly have to shower just to cool down. Not the place for afternoon naps. Perhaps better suited for winter visits as the room is equipped with a heater, but no fan or aircon.

Totally recommendable. Nice and comfortable rooms with a cosy atmosphere. Excellent breakfast. We stayed for two nights and got the best recommendation for trips in the area. Very nice and helpful people.

Room Tip: The two rooms in the top floor are great and have the best view.

We chose Lagoon Lodge for its really low rates and were treated to 5-star service! Although we were upgraded to a room in another lodge in the group due to a previous guest staying on, they are run by the same people and they were friendly and concerned hosts. We really received everything we would have in a more expensive place. Very good value for money!
