The hotel has a fabulous location looking over the lagoon and heads of Knysna. It has good quality rooms and the bar and breakfast were excellent. The golf course at Simola is definately worth playing, again offering excellent views and some very interesting holes.

Clean, neat and extremely comfy. Food was amazing and they have a really good variaty of wine. Spa was also good. We are not golfers, but needed a place out of town with some activities for relaxation, and Simola is the perfect place for that.
