On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the Loft's staff. The accommodation was comfortable, however, the pictures on the website did not match our expectations. In particular, the shower facility was almost non functional, with little to no water pressure, and extreme temperature...More

Was an excellent spot for visitors who don't know Knysna very well. Comfy and clean rooms with friendly staff! Our room also had a lovely big balcony. Only drawback was that the walls were a little thin... but luckily the neighbours snoring didn't bother me.More

The Lofts is a renovated building where boats were built. The hotel shares space with shops on the lower level. The superior rooms feature the old beams, a large bathroom, and a spacious outside balcony. Despite it being a busy weekend, the rooms were quiet...More

About
Description
What better way to enjoy Knysna than a stay on an island, located not only in the heart of the Knysna Lagoon, but also in a Blue Flag Marina in the very centre of Knysna? Set within the remodelled timber More frame of the old Knysna boatbuilding shed, the hotel rooms take one's breath away with their industrial refurbishment and design. This fresh, smart-casual approach is far from the ordinary, and caters well to every desire. Multiple room options are presented in various styles: Exclusive Lagoon Suites Luxury Loft Suites Luxury Units with Self-catering Facilities Less
