We were spoilt with a Daddy's deal for two nights and extended ourselves with an extra night. Rooms very tasteful, views indescribable and attention from staff exemplary. Breakfast by arrangement at an extra cost but only 3 minutes from central Knysna - so much to do, so little time.

Arriving quite late, we were warmly welcomed by Fish! ; ) Our accommodation was incredible and spacious and the morning and evening view of the lake was spectacular. The huge bath/Jacuzzi in the bathroom also has a view and being on honeymoon made it so much more romantic and relaxing! Would definitely visit again!!
