Everything in the hotel is excellent... except for the internet access in my rooms. My suite was big and had a great view of the pool. It had all the facilities. The location is pretty as well as safe, and I was able to go out for a run.

The hotel room was spacious and well laid out - and provided several places to hide Easter eggs as we were there on Easter weekend! It was not that easy to find, partly because the GPS had the wrong location for it, and then also because the construction has partly obscured the signs to the entrance. The major drawback was...

We stayed here for two nights. First night was awful, second was great. We were travelling as a family - two adults and a five year old. We'd booked a one-bedroom suite, with the expectation that our son could sleep on the sofa bed in the lounge area. The staff converted the sofa and made up the bed for us....

Stayed here for two nights during SAGA tour of South Africa. Rooms were very good, clean and fresh. Pool was good, but sun loungers had seen better days. Grounds delightful and full of birds. Restaurant was buffet style and food was not great.Think used a lot of tinned fruit and vegetables. Paella was offered one night and it was clearly...

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.

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...
