    Lovely unique decor making a pleasant change from hotels decorated to fit brand guidelines. Huge bathroom and great rain shower. Really friendly and helpful staff. It's a small breakfast room but the quality and choice was great.

    We stayed over the period 06 - 09 April in the two bedroom apartment. The stay was amazing. The hotel is very central in Knysna and close to the Waterfront. The apartments is very modern and all necessary amenities. The duvets are the best.
