Score from 61 reviews Exceptional
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.
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.
location lovely sunny rooms stunning décor friendly staff amazing breakfast
The pleasant ambience and beautiful view of the lake. Beautiful rooms and tasty breakfast made it a worthwhile stop.
Thiis is a lovely guest house outside of the main town of Knysna, and directly leading on to a beautiful lagoon. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was excellent. We highly recommend it.
SERVICE AND HELPFULLNES OF STAFF
We love the in the lagoon feel of this hotel our room had two fires and the best bathroom I have ever seen Dinner and breakfast are better than any venue in knysna. Don't miss out by staying there and going to the waterfront for dinner rather go shop and drinks then back for a great dinner
Read your booking notes! I was disappointed fires not blazing on arrival
An excellent hotel. I can't wait to take my family thyrough and spend a few days there
This is a magnificent guest house in a most scenic location looking out to the lagoon. We stayed on a cold Winter's night and there was a roaring fire in the bar/lounge area - so inviting and cosy. The breakfast and dinner was superb and the staff were very helpful and friendly. This is a 5* quality guest house and it deserves it's status!
We had a very pleasant stay, which included a room update. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the facilities were excellent and the food superb. Our only regret is that we could not stay for longer.
This is a hotel in the old style and fully deserves 5 stars, i have no hesitation to recommend hotel 100%
The friendliness of staff, services provided.
Wonderful accommodation and staff, looked right out onto the lagoon
Beautiful location on the banks of the lagoon. Comfortable and classy furnishings and an excellent bed with great linen, always a plus!
Fantastic customer service, amazing location and the best breakfast of the whole trip
Nothing not to like!
Everything. What a find! The new chef produced really good food for my evening meals. They even cleaned my car! Well done to all the staff who were attentive without being intrusive. I will definitely be back.
Nothing to dislike
all, very excellent Restaurant cheap and good!
From the friendly, efficient check-in to similar check out the St James was a pleasure. A fine breakfast with the view towards the Heads over the lagoon and a daily newspaper to browse started the day. Dinner was fine dining, and with a good wine list. A nice range of whiskeys in the well stocked bar/library. The suite was excellent and well supplied with all the accessories for comfort. All round lovely service and attention.
The location, so beautiful and tranquil. Great location to relax and take amazing pictures of nature. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast not stocked up on meats, cheese and fruit when coming to breakfast at 9am. (One morning only) Choice of food on evening menu - especially as fish was unavailable!
Very spacious and comfortable suite and of course the really beautiful garden.
One could hear the slightest sound from the adjoining suite, which was at times quite disturbing. That the food at the breakfast buffet was not covered and no serviette was provided to hold the bread in order to cut it.
St. James of Knysna was one of my favorite hotels during a three weeks south africa trip. Location is magnificent the hotel is just in front of the lake. Receptionist extremely helpful. Rooms are huge and very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent. On my next trip I will book the St.James of Knysna again.
Beautiful, serene environment. The staff were so helpful and Sandy the mañager extremely understanding when he had to arrange an early departure.
Stayed for three nights on our garden route trip. Beautiful setting to enjoy a delicious breakfast al fresco. Very comfortable and spacious room with lots of attention to detail. Nice pool area where you can relax and cool off. Would definitely recommend.
