The panoramic view from the hotel, across the whole of Knysna and beyond, is something to behold.The gardens are beautiful, with lots of indigenous fynbos, which attracts a host of birdlife. It's out of the busy hub of the town, but close enough - about a 5 minute drive downhill. The hotel is lovely, with plush furnishings, a delicious and...

I just went to have a late lunch with a friend and was blown away by the stunning views. We watched sun birds flying from bush to Bush while having lunch. The pie that I had which was dish of the day was well worth it as it was jam packed with meat. Excellent value for money. The service was...

We had a day visit to the Simola spa. All staff were exceptionally friendly and cheerful. The spa treatments were excellent : we had chosen a package which included lunch, which we had next to the pool. We started the day with delicious cappuccino which was brought to us in the spa. The facial and massage were both excellent. The...

We have visited Simola many times over the last few years, and it's so great to see that the service and facilities have improved especially the pool deck! Would be great if they had a games room for older kids and improve their wifi. All in all an awesome place

Timeshare type appartments with huge living area, and large bathroom and bedroom. Quiet and dark rooms very well appointed. Clean and tidy. Staff friendly but service a little slow. The restaurant was nice with god food and portions. Breakfast buffet with a good selection of hot and cold foods. Good property with excellent internet in a lovely location.

I recently visited Simola for a manicure & pedicure (with gel polish) and was so disappointed with the service. The polish had completely chipped off within 6 days -- while it should last 2 to 3 weeks. Obviously the technician clumped it on too thick, causing it not to stick well. The polish was also not applied evenly. Not worth...
