Score from 35 reviews Exceptional
We liked everything about the accommodation and our stay. Our welcome was warm and our introduction to the facilities was very helpful. The staff were always friendly, but not intrusive, nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb- breakfast was delicious and evening meals and snacks were amazing. The view is second to none. What more can we say, we had a wonderful time and would love to return!
The suite was beautiful. The location is spectacular. The food is excellent and the staff are truly fantastic.
We loved everything
This is an amazing hotel. Fabulous position, but it is the wonderful staff that really make this hotel as they make you feel so welcome. Food superb. Attention to detail exceptional This is a real gem. We will return I am sure.
The only very slight negative was the Internet access which was poor in our room.
Stunning setting, excellent location, friendly and efficient staff, great food and well-trained staff in the restaurant. If I had a criticism, it would be that the car had only been washed overnight and not wax- polished. If we ever manage to get back, it will be for more than a one night stay.

Visit the villa afrikana then you know what we mean! The price and the result.
Beautiful location on the waters edge, stunning views across to Knysna, excellent food and wine, large suites beautifully furnished and equipped. Charming and stylish hotel we had a thoroughly relaxing stay.
Beautiful setting, friendly staff, delicious food. We had our Christmas dinner there and it was just perfect. The rooms are lovely especially the bath tubs.
Delightful location on the lagoon. Good food in the restaurant. Very helpful and happy staff (particularly Sandy in Reception).
Unreliable Internet connection
St James has an air of sophistication and grandeur. Rooms are spacious and the views from the hotel are lovely. It is quiet and well away from the busy area of Knysna. Staff are very attentive.
The property is old and it shows in a few ways. The bathrooms are out-dated and would benefit greatly from a refurbishment.
Everything was excellent....,!!!!!!
Great views, lovely grounds.
1. very good location, not far from town, even walking distance, most exciting is the hotel just near the lake, perfect view!地点非常好，离市中心不远，甚至可以步行，紧邻湖边，景色秀丽。 2. hotel jus like a beautiful garden, with elegance, privacy and safty.酒店就是一个优雅美丽安全的私家花园。3. excellent rooms, spacious, no matter facing the lake or the garden, just very comfortable, good furniture, modern facilities. 房间很大，非常好用，设备方便。4、staff members are very friendly, like family members. 服务人员非常友好！
nothing bad. 没发现什么不好的。
Nice and cozy hotel. Warm ambience and fascinating view.
This hotel is truly outstanding. From the moment we arrived, sandy and her team went above and beyond to make it a relaxing and memorable stay. We stayed in a suite which was beautiful- there was a huge bedroom, generous size bathroom with a stand alone bath and a lovely sitting room. We were amazed at the quality of both the room and hotel for the price we paid. It is excellent value for money. The service was impeccable- the bed was turned down each night for us, the car was washed each morning and the breakfast was delicious. I could not recommend this place any higher. We will definitely return again.
Everything! This was the perfect relaxing hideaway. it was well appointed, very friendly and attentive staff. Lovely food and choice in the restaurant. We even got the car washed each morning!
While this hotel has beautiful rooms and spacious rooms, out of all the 5 star hotels we stayed at in South Africa, this one just didn't compare to the others. However, it is a great 4 star hotel with very friendly staff and great breakfast.
Everything about our stay was exceptional, the staff were very helpful and very attentive, the room was 'huge' very comfortable room/bathroom, breakfast varied dishes. Beautiful, enchanting sited property, by the lagoon/lake, disceptive hidden main entrance.
We were masmarised by the wonderfull location n the quite n lovely maintained ptoperty . Warm welcome n prompt checkin Must come again plsce Arun
The Rooms are quite huge with extra comfort, suites are very luxurious , it reminds old british homes. Balcony facing the lagoons were very catchy, Descent breakfast served, staff at the restaurant and lobby very helpful.
The first impression at the Hotel was terrible. When we arrived after a 4 hour drive we had to struggle for 1 hour to get hold of the rooms as they are very rigid in the policies. We had checked in the beginning about the children allowed in the hotel and were forced to take the room which we did not wsnt to stay in , and the manager there she was very RUDE the way she spoke, she was so arrogant the way she repeteadly told that if my kids break anything then i wid have to pay.i have been to many places but not seen such kind of un professionalism especially from a Manager. Next day she came to us and was sorry but it was too late as they had already messed our night. She Even messed the billing part, especially when i asked her that was everything clear before our checkout and later own charged my card even without my notice when we arrived to my home country. I would like to visit this hotel again but not with such kind of attitude of management towards thier customers.
