“Fantastic break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Whilst holidaying from the UK we decided to have a couple of days in Knysna and chose the lodge for this purpose -what a fantastic place.

The staff and owners are so friendly and helpful and all seem to enjoy going the extra distance to ensure you have a memorable time. Fron the moment we walked into reception we felt welcome and like old friends. As a family we loved it.

We really enjoyed our stay at Tonquani Lodge for our honeymoon. Even though we weren't staying in the honeymoon suite we were treated to complimentary welcome snacks and champagne. The staff were very helpful and friendly and quickly made us feel at home. We stayed in the Milkwood suite and the rooms felt very luxurious. All the little touches really surprised us and made the stay really memorable. The willingness of the staff to help us with bookings and arrangements resulted in a very relaxing stay. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay here and a big thumbs up for the excellent service we received. Very tranquil and the massage was very relaxing. A cent worth spent and will certainly recommend this place to anyone.

Tonquani is a number of pine cabins on a hillside amongst manicured gardens and water. So many added luxuries like a great breakfast menu, generous hair and skin products, free wifi, DTV, swimming pool, huge room. We felt really pampered staying here- the best accommodation of everywhere we stayed in SA. Don't be put off by the 'kitchie' African artwork at the entrance. Only other mini gripe- no bedside clock- but that's being VERY picky. If we ever comeback to Knysna- this is where we will book in. No doubts.

Great Place and excellent value for money. Felt like we were in a log cabin in the middle of the mountains and the lady in the front desk was extremely helpful with places we could visit. Stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi and the only problem was that the hot water was finished before enough water was put in the tub. Night two I filled the bath with only hot water and waited for the geyser to heat up again for the next load, then only added cold water. It was nice though to have candles and bubble bath for a nice romantic bath. Spa massages were also excellent. Felt more traditional and not all that oil what you get at most places, so we could go straight out and enjoy our day. Breakfast was so good. Lovely and tranquil place to relax and excellently priced.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tree Fern Room but would have preferred to have one of the room that are further aw...

I absolutely love this place!This was our second visit. The first time we went ,I was pregnant with my now 6 year old daughter . We wanted her to experience this beautiful place.The staff was so helpful and friendly. The accommodation was top notch and I looked forward to their sumptuous breakfast every morning. I left Tonquani completely relaxed and was rather sad to say goodbye . Will definitely go back for another visit!
