First visit to the Knysna River club. Enjoyed a short stay. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Went the extra mile to accommodate our late check in. Units were comfortable and liked that the beds had electric blankets. Close to the lagoon with beautiful views.

Please fix the toilet leak on the putt putt course! Our chalet was right next to it and disgusting. That is my only complaint. Nice place in nice location, can definitely recommend. A bit pricey but quality stay.
