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.
After having booked on booking.com, with a special request to have the best room with a view of the lagoon, we were rather upset that, upon arrival, we had to stay in a room overlooking the driveway. However, we expressed our disappointment and the friendly staff at The Lofts refunded us in full for the inconvenience. I was initially disappointed, but at this hotel, they really do care about their customers. For this reason I shall continue to stay there and I'll be happy to pay for their excellent service and beautiful rooms. Thank you dearly for restoring my originally high opinion of your hotel.
Nice patio Breakfast voucher to have great breakfast at 2 top coffee shops
No face cloths in bathroom Too many spotlights is room.
Enjoyed the location, very comfortable room.
Beware of the beam above the bed!!
The decor, ambience
Room was cold, heating did not work
Comfortable bed Clean Good Location Friendly Staff
Pictures on website and actual were misleading. Staff did not give a 'tour' of the facilities, therefore missed that their was in fact a mini bar and spa facility. Communication with guest was limited to none.
Everything. Rooms were well presented and had everything we needed. Loved our stay.
No TV in lounge(minor)
Friendly and accommodating staff. Modern, spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent location.
The smell of freshly baked bread in the am just gets you going! Staff grabbing my muddy MTB and washing and storing it for me. Lady at reception being wonderfully helpful in sorting all requests out. Huuuge bed and great big shower. Excellent allround.
No smell of freshly baked bread in the evenings haha.
There was no restaurant or easy access to food.
It was so beautiful It was a business trip But so relaxing The ambiance is so special
The facility is well maintained, breakfast meals - a good scheme whereby you can eat at different restuarants in close proximity. A good plan :) Marios breakfast was the best in the waterfront. We did not feel rushed in the morning for room service, all was done in according to our movements - flexibility of personnel good. Weel worth the stay. Portugese restauran in the water front above Marios - also a good dine.
Could not stay longer :)
The viewes were breath taking and spa treatment was amazing! Would definitely come back
very charming hotel. staff friendly and personable. room comfortable and stylish.
after 7:00 pm, the hotel close the doors and you just open with magnetic key. We arrived at 7:30 pm and there was nobody at the reception. Luckily, a gentle guest was coming and opened the door and called someone from reception to come!
Breakfast arrgts were a let down - inconsistant with the rest of experience - had breakfast elsewhere so paid for it twice
All in all very good!
Very nice and peaceful area staff really friendly and helpful.
Beautiful little hotel with views over the lagoon. Very spacious comfortable room and well located on Thesen Island.
Description room and actual room did not match. Suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms does not exist. Outside of city centre Knysna, need a car for that.
Size of room, location and cleanliness.
everything. The place is a dream !!!
The room was lovely, very clean and well appointed. The view was delightful ..... lovely little fishing town.
Could not find fault in any respect and would highly recommend
