Score from 74 reviews Exceptional
the room was stunning, the staff made really helpful recommendations on what to do and they gave free breakfast tokens to the best places in town. Spa is just next door too.
Nothing to dislike about this place.
Great location. Cool room, we had a suite with a great view and excellent natural light Breakfast at Ile de pain The staff was nice
Lack of amenities for the price. One day it was raining and they had two umbrellas for the whole property. The wifi is really annoying with a login situation every time your device goes idle. For the price they were a bit lacking the little things and customer service we had gotten at a place like Cinnamon boutique hotel in Wilderness.
Location Size of loft room View from public areas
No view over lagoon from balcony Generator noise outside our room
Cool, modern accommodation, but with a tint of yesteryear. Very nice cafes in the area for breakfast.
Breakfast is external to hotel, but for that you have a choice of cafes to go to, so every day somewhere different. Direct locality to hotel was a bit quiet and needed car to go anywhere.
We enjoyed our stay a lot. Beautiful view of the bay.
Location is great - best to ask for a room with a lagoon view. Il de pain restaurant for breakfast excellent. Pool, common room, honesty bar, tea etch worked really well.
location accomodation communal lounges surrounding restaurants
lack of lagoon view
An amazing place, with amazing design and architecture. Knysna is also stunningly beautiful and close to many great attractions. This hotel is a must see
To little free wi-fi
Everything - especially the amazing architecture and design
Spacious 2 bedroom apartments, the in house spa, friendly staff, great breakfast place just around the corner. Service and facilities were excellent
They used wi-fi vouchers, valid for only a day and about 200MB, which requires you to login all the time
Location, comfort of the beds, spaciousness, luxury
Top bedroom is a hassle to get to, more TV channels a must (and someone should clear the message on the central decoder), no minibar.
Bay view, outstanding room, breakfast at IIle de Pain!
Reception should be 24hs, or at least, wifi vouchers at guest disposal to be collected there
Location, hotel ambience, ile de pain breakfast
Having to go out for breakfast but that said not really that much of an issue.
Well situated Friendly staff
Everything. Such a unique architecture and a gorgeous sunset!!
The hotel is very modern and we loved the style and interior design.
Our room faced towards the inside of the building and was really dark when you closed the shatters which you had to do because people walking past could look straight into our room. The shower's water pressure was terrible
The room space Rooms were bright and light The view It's modern appeal Perfect position Good receptionists The Isle de Pain eatery on our doorstep Secure parking Neat and clean.
Out Bathroom Basin Plunger was out of order. As a result were not able to let the water out of the basin. We reported it immediately, and I think . . . they tried to repair it, but the problem remained unchanged until we departed.
Location, stylish interior and the different choice of restaurants for breakfast close by.
Enjoyed the rooms, the views, the atmosphere after the Karoo2Coast MTB race
The staff is very helpful and friendly The place is very welcoming The stay was value for money
I had to leave
The staff and welcoming where professional and friendly I was taken on a "tour" of the facility and the History of the building and surrounds was proudly shared with me with much enthusiasm! The room was huge and the bathroom clean and airy. I was given a restaurant voucher to have breakfast or lunch at Il de pain -which was heavenly! My new BEST PLACE TO STAY in Knysna!
I loved the location and spacious accommodation.The staff were very helpful and friendly. It was clean and well serviced.
The towels were old but the staff replaced immediately so I think it was just an oversight.
Maintenance continuing next door while trying to sleep after long drive
Decor Cleanliness Location Friendly Staff Honest Bar
Nothing to dislike
Location to the waterfront and restaurants on the Island. Fantastic rooms, well stocked bar, spa facilities for the ladies. Quiet atmosphere for a truly relaxing time.
