Peace And quite.
there are limited units with views and being an ex boat loft that has been renovated the architects have had a dream but in reality, it in some ways is an occupiers nightmare . beams to dodge , vertical stairs to upper floors , one shower per 2 b/room unit . location good , staff helpful , lounge area and view good ; great breakfast / bakery 100m away.
The staff were extremely helpful. Although the hotel had no coffee shop, we were recommend one very close by which was wonderful. Only a ten minute walk to Knysna waterfront. Good secure parking.
Very special desgin in the room
Location was great! Apartment was fantastic!
Location, hotel staff and everything was fantastic
The view from most rooms could be better
Lovely unusual setting. Very peaceful
Our room had huge windows which overlooked the bay with stunning views. The bed and other facilities in the room were fantastic.
Breakfast is arranged in a local cafe which gets very busy and involves a 20 min wait. However the hotel staff quickly made arrangements for us to go to another restaurant.
Spacious apartments Thesen Island and its bars / restaurants Relaxed atmosphere of reception and honesty bar
Only staying for one night!!
I was surprised that there was no breakfast for the price we paid
Stunningly beautiful & original Excellent and safe position Very comfortable bedrooms Classy interior decorating Beautiful and comfortable honesty bar and lounge.
Poor Wi-fi receiption/ quality (this seem to be a problem in all of Thesen Isle/ Knysna). Rather expensive (but not a feeling of being hard done by it)
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
