Beuatiful hotel set overlooking the bay at Knysna. Each cottage is separate with up to three bedrooms and full kitchen with cooker, washing machine etc. for the longer stay.
Very chintzy but tastefully decorated with good toiletries. Some elements such as showers and fridges are showing some wear, but then who isn't.
Good restaurant altho the food tends to be a little heavy and good cellar. Breakfast is excellent with hot porridge available.
Better value for eating (food prepared in the same kitchen) is the village on-site pub - which takes you back to how pubs used to be in the UK. It also serves a good pint of local beer.
Would recomend this for an extended stay and (safe) base (private estate) to tour the surroundings.
