At first we were in a bedroom downstairs that had no windows so was very dark. On request we were moved to a light airy room upstairs with far nicer decor & the same price.
Close to restaurants on Main Street & the waterfront And only 15 min walk to thessen Island. Clean comfy room. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.

The swimming pool is one length all over and not conducive to swimming or relaxing in it. I'm not sure what factors played a role in the design of the swimming pool, but my opinion is that the construction of the pool should have been planned better in order to optimize the use of the pool by guests and enhance their experience of staying there. Our shower head in our bathroom did not work properly (water pressure was poor etc.), but because we spent so little time in our room, I did not deem it worthy to complain about it or to point it out in order to have it fixed. My showers in the bathroom (which are essential, especially after a day's swim in the ocean) were therefore not convenient and it took a very long time to clean up properly in the shower due to the poor layout, lack of space and improper functioning of the shower head and the weak pressure of the water. I also found it inconvenient that the hotel does not use the breakfast area as a restaurant for lunch/dinners, because sometimes guests would just like to stay in and relax and not go out. However, I do take into consideration that demand and supply play a role, as well as other factors.
I loved the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff and the outstanding service levels, which are rare to find in today's world. I also loved the location of the hotel and the excellent breakfast and accommodation of my dietary requirements, as well as the compliance with my special requests for the room. The hotel is simply stunning and our stay was enhanced by the ambience, beauty and elegance of the hotel.

Interior of the hotel could be renovated a bit.

For the price we paid, breakfast was a little sketchy - only scrambled eggs available (no poached, omelettes etc). Would've been nice if there was some bottled water in the room as the water in the taps was brown.
Location close to the Knysna waterfront Clean and comfortable beds

Central position in Knysna and walking distance to the finish of the Knysna Forest Marathon. And thanks for providing breakfast at 4.30am!!
July 15, 2014
The rooms where dark and there was no balcony or private outside area to relax. No child friendly activities besides a pool.
We only wanted a place to stay for the marathon. I found the staff friendly and accommodating.

Hotel very central - walking distance to start/finish line of mtb race. Walking distance to waterfront as well as other places in main road. Staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Although I had to check out at 10h00 (on Monday) I could leave my car with bike on in secure parking lot till 14h30. Breakfasts were good.Will definitely recommend hotel to others. They kept my bike in a room behind reception - VERY safe! So there were no worries about my bike.

The wooden decks outside some of the rooms-can become very noisy when people are booking in/out of their rooms with their cases. The bar area is not user friendly-no couches-just hard wooden chairs and very small
Staff are very friendly and helpful
