Rooms not private. People can see through glass from hallway
Clean nd neat
bed linen torn and too little water flowing through
Nothing it was an excellent choice for Knysna and will definitely stay there again.
The hotel was central and modern and close to the waterfront.
Wifi is a bit weak
Great staff, Excellent Breakfast, Free bikes at disposal
Lounge too big. Bedroom too small. Bad design.
Location, Attractive, Just a nice place to stay and so close to all the other places.
shower water leaks into bathroom (no lip or slope to floor) safety deposit box inaccessible due to wardrobe door opening blocked by bedside table
new and top spec designed furnishings & fittings self-catering kitchenette brilliant breakfasts in downstairs café attached to hotel
No view of the water.
We likes the setting in the shopping centre. We liked the breakfast
I would make sure to ask for one of the rooms that has a door to the bathroom... no doors to the WC takes some of the romance out of a trip... also no showers, but more importantly, no hand shower in the bath. Made it difficult for my wife to wash her hair.
Nice, modern looking, building. Neat, new, and clean rooms. Great courtyard and breakfast area, and great little cafe downstairs.
Room too small. View not great
Breakfast cafe was cosy. Very nice. Shower nice but water seeps out.
The shower and toilet combination is not working. Remove the stained carpets replace with tiles or wood.
The location was great huge apartment with everything you will need.
- wifi is limited to 100MB per day.
- comfy and luxurious rooms - attentive staff - very good breakfast - 2mins walk to knysna's waterfront
Location, quiet area but ideally situated across from the waterfront
room and breakfast
First impressions are most important, and we were put off by the state of the reception carpet, desk, and stuff lying around in the entrance.
The room was delightful, light and airy with good decorations. It is well located in the centre of town, so everywhere is within walking distance. Undercover onsite parking is a bonus
The large glass window looking onto the passage needs a blind of some sort to stop the light at night.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Good location.
No view .
I found the room to be clean ,well furnished ,bathroom spacious and well fitted .
Biggest disadvantage: just too loud (not just the surroundings but in the hotel itself, especially during the night, because the walls are too thin and part of the wall is out of glass ) Staff was not very motivated, as the reception as well as in the attached coffee-shop where you get your breakfast.
AT first sight very nice hotel, modern and designful equipped
Convenient location, large rooms, great staff
It would be nice if the staff could show us how everything worked, instead of calling the maintenance people
the livingroom area was great and spacious
Poor wifi and no mini bar. We experienced load shedding and only a few candles were available.
I loved the high ceilings,modern, stylish and sophisticated rooms. Very accommodating staff and good breakfast options.
Very helpful staff, nice and quiet setting and central location
Our room wasn't ready even though we checked an hour and half late. Check-out time was also early so not much time spent here.
Really comfortable modern rooms in a great location
The location was brilliant!
Internet limited to 100mb a day
super modern room and very spacious
