Gorgeous, quiet place with beautiful rooms - we were on the ground floor at the back which I was concerned about but it was lovely and light with a view into our garden. Staff were exceptionally helpful, could have happily stayed longer than our 2 nights!

Steps to get in and out and upper floors but for alble bodies no problems
What's not to like, the view is to die for, the staff you would employ in any people business, the bed's are so comfortably, coffee and cakies in the afternoon. Bikes and kayaks for the fit!

There really is nothing to dislike.
Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful spacious rooms and bathrooms. Location very nice close to the Knysna Heads, close to the golf club, peaceful on Leisure Island, yet close enough to Thesen Island for more choice of restaurants. Would definitely come back. They made breakfast boxes for us because we had to leave very early in the morning.
