We stayed for two nights in this charming hotel situated outside Knysna but in walking distance of the town and the seafront. The rooms were large and spotlessly clean and standards of service were excellent throughout the hotel. Food was excellent.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Riviera tour of South Africa. The bungalow style rooms were spacious and well appointed. The high ceilings were a nice feature that added style to the rooms. The food was of a good standard- I particularly liked the eggs being cooked to order at breakfast. The staff were all friendly...

The thatched family cottage for 4 was beautiful in its setting and its furnishing, particularly the log fire on the one cold night we had. This was the 4th stop of 5 on our CapeTown to Eastern Cape tour and admittedly the expectations set by the other legs of the trip were sky hight, but we couldn't help feeling it...

We stayed there this Easter period and we've had such a great experience we're already planning our next trip and basing it around another stay at Knysna Hollow. There's plenty a restaurant in Knysna, so finding dinner is easy, but enjoying great food, a comfy, warm setting, great service and a good selection of wine can only be found at...

The rooms are small bungalows in a horseshoe around a swimming pool with sunbeds. Very nice hotel & rooms with twin beds, fan, tv, safe, large twin walk-in shower, toiletries, bottled water, hairdryer, kettle with tea & coffee. Nice a la carte conservatory for dining, a bit noisy when busy, but the food was excellent. Nice separate bar area for...

Stayed at 8 different hotels / lodges on our tour and this one by far exceeded all expectations. The cottage was spacious with a bedroom & separate sitting room with a log fire and a great bathroom. The breakfast buffet was good with an a la carte evening menu the food was delicious. Absolutely no complaints.

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the place to be very comfortable and good value for the price. The rooms were large and spacious with great bathrooms ... loved the double shower but water pressure issues meant that it was a little tricky adjusting the hot water!

We loved our stay at the Knysna Hollow Country Estate. The chalet was charming and we liked being able to step straight outside to the pool. All the staff were excellent and looked after us very well. We enjoyed walking round the grounds spotting the birds - and the large Koi carp. We would strongly recommend this hotel.

All I can say is that Knysna Hollow is not the type of place you will regret putting your money into. The rooms are modern and cosy and the food is great. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. My only regret was the fact that I only spent 1 night there during my last trip.

Fantastic location set just outside Knysna village. Standard rooms are great but for something extra special the chalets are perfect. Small clusters of rooms with a pool for each area. Decent wifi connection throughout. Worth remembering to pack mozzie spray for evenings on the terrace. Food-wise it's decent but could be improved. Good cheese and meat platter for lunch but...
