Score from 101 reviews Very good
the livingroom area was great and spacious
It would be nice if the staff could show us how everything worked, instead of calling the maintenance people
I loved the high ceilings,modern, stylish and sophisticated rooms. Very accommodating staff and good breakfast options.
Poor wifi and no mini bar. We experienced load shedding and only a few candles were available.
Very helpful staff, nice and quiet setting and central location
Really comfortable modern rooms in a great 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.
The location was brilliant!
super modern room and very spacious
Internet limited to 100mb a day
The decor was pleasing and of a good quality
Bathroom layout not comfortable at all. Nowhere to place anything around basin.
Location . Modern spacious apartment at a very good price. Staff very friendly and secure car parking
Location, room size,
No pool, not enough free wifi
Nice spacious and convenient luxury studio with spacious balcony terrasse Professional and helpful staff Located between waterfront and main commercial centers
Refill of shampoo and kleenex Bed a bit hard
Location to waterfront. Friendly staff.
A king size bed was requested. Instead two single beds were joined together with two single duvet covers for a couple. No backup generator for when the power is out.
Self-catering, location, clean and comfortab E
Bathroom ergonomics were poor, for example, no light over the sink, awkward to get in and out of shower and we are not big people
Comfort and cleanliness
Awesome room. Comfortable living. Friendly staff. Close to everything
Balcony was dirty. Breakfast options weren't the greatest
Friendly, helpful staff, a spacious, comfortable room and good breakfast made for a pleasant stay.
Minor issue - lack of shelves in the bathroom.
Lots of space, airy, reasonably clean, all kitchenware very good condition
Breakfast, boring till we asked for alternatives (not volunteered), stale bread and even staler pastries / croissants etc. Fresh fruit ok.
Style of furnishings
Carpets somewhat dirty Bare essentials only in bedroom
Close to Waterfront. Nice area.
Bath could have hand shower and rails for older people.
Terrible water pressure in the shower. Room was a bit tired with stains on the furniture. The staff were disinterested. The coffe shop's coffe machine didn't work.
Wonderful staff! Helpful! The rooms were fantastic! We previously stayed at a 5 star hotel in Cape town and found the Rex to be better!!! Great location! We were sad that we only spent a night. So stay longer!
The wifi was really bad. It wasn't really reliable.
The Rex Hotel is ideally situated near the Knysna Waterfront. Lots of small shops and restaurants near the hotel. Staff were very helpful. Great value for money.
Loved the room, Close to waterfront, awsome staff and service.
the entrance to hotel is hidden away, bigger signs would help first time visitors
Excellent hotel, given free upgrade, room was beautiful and they even washed our car. Superb location within walking of market and some superb eats places, definitely worth a second visit
We stayed 5 nights and loved everything about rex hotel! Rooms are extremely comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. Waterfront is 2 minute walk away. If we visit Knysna again we would definitely stay in rex hotel.
Only criticism would be that the breakfast could have been better, it need more variety.
Good size room
No facilities eg spa,gym etc Only Basic T V channels No spa
