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.
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.
