I stayed here for two nights as part of a Garden route tour. The setting is beautiful and when you arrive and see the grounds and swimming pool you do think wow!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Knysna Hollow for a night on a business trip. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's built on a lovely estate just out of town. Far from the madding crowd and very peaceful yet close enough to town if you do want a change of scenery. The rooms and facilities were fantastic. I will...

Stayed couple of nights and enjoyed the large hut we had near the pool. Unfortunately the weather did not favour us and did not have chance to use the pool. Gardens, huts and he main building are well maintained, staff is very friendly and breakfast was good as well. We dined here one evening and it was also very good.
