Had a restful, peaceful night at this beautiful, stylish hotel that offered me awesome service. Woke up the next day refreshed and ready to conquer the world. Will choose the same hotel for my next trip. What a memorable experience!

A nice hotel with good views of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads. The accomodation was more like a time share unit with two levels and its own kitchen and very comfortable. Just a bit too far from the centre of Knysna where all the action is. Meals very adequate.

I was a little concerned on arriving at the hotel, the location was further from the waterfront than I had expected. Also the road to get to the hotel was not encouraging. However that changed when I checked in, the front desk staff were very friendly and I was very pleased with the comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the...

This hotel has some great features. It has an excellent location and the rooms are huge, especially the family suites. The food was good and very copious. On the minus side, two little things need to be fixed: getting a pool towel when the stock had run out seemed to be beyond the capacity of the staff and the internet...

I booked a two bed room suite for my family after viewing the photos on the hotel web site which showed a kitchen. I was travelling with my 8 month old grand daughter and wanted to be able to heat some food for her and eat in the room if she was asleep. I was shocked to find that the...

This hotel is in a beautiful location - but it is outside the town which is walking distance but we had done a lot of travelling so were very happy to relax here - most of the rooms are suites with sitting rooms and kitchen - a lovely pool - staff are very helpful

The service was excellent from checking in until departure. The chalet was well furnished, comfortable and tidy. The location was found to be in a nice environment. The food (buffet) was enjoyable. Nothing specifically experienced as a dislike.
