Location is good
Breakfast spread was bad and was not replenished Two single beds were put together and we were told point blank that there was no option to have a double bed Noisy neighborhood with dog barking from next door Free Wifi is only 100 MB which is not enough
The room and the breakfast
Breakfast isn't good and For to have a cappuccino I have payed 15 Rand!!!
good value for money large two bedroom with all the amenities good breakfast
It is walking distance from the waterfront Luxurious rooms and suites
Breakfast could be better.
Very well situated to walk to waterfront and restaurants. Large, modern clean facilities, more than expected. Lovely full breakfast and friendly staff
Don't stay for the view or peace and quiet, stay for the proximity to shopping and amenities.
Location, location, location!!! Excellent facilities in the heart of town 2 minutes from the Waterfront, lagoon and sports fields. Clean, spacious and well thought out. Very contemporary and elegant.
No TV in the bedroom. Bath plug didn't work properly, couldn't enjoy a long relaxing soak after my taxing bike ride
The location, the staff and hotel were of an excellent standard
Small gripe, wife went down for breakfast at 9 and staff commented how they would have to "make something as its so late". I realise a big party before her had ravished breakfast but not quite my wife's fault. Plus could only offer coffee not tea
What a wonderful apartment.! The furnishing were slick and sophisticated, comfortable and clean. Centrally situated to the Waterfront so we could walk to the restaurants with ease. Whilst there was a kitchen area, I don't think is is fully equipped for self catering, more like coffee and cereal in the morning. Didn't bother us though; I was happy to eat out! Excellent value for money.
The breakfast was a disappointment. It was served between 7am - 11am and I think it was pre-cooked early and served up when the people came in! Ours was cold both mornings, even though we were there at 8:30! Cold plates too - a big NO NO!
This hotel offers comfort in a very stylish context making your stay at the Rex hotel a charming and special experience. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the small but picturesque Knysna waterfront.
Everything was to our liking.
good loction good staff good brekfast
Hotel has it's own parking. Hotel has it's own security. Close to Thessen Island and the Center of Knysna. Design is great. Rooms are very nice. Service is excellent.
WiFi is only in a limited manner available and you have to log in via a website, which is annoying.
Lovely studio room. Very clean. Extremely friendly staff. Great location. Good value for money.
Didn't have time to stay longer.
shower water pressure low
The decor, beds
Distance from the lift was far despite having asked for a room that was close. No lagoon view despite having requested it on booking.
Very good hotel, family room is a very nice option, to recommend
Staff could be more friendly
Nice furniture - nice pieces - eclectic - not your usual hotel pieces. Not sure if they are all the same but I loved ours. Breakfast inclined which was a nice surprise.
Position, service, facilities, comfort, spaciousness, excellent front desk staf, value for money
Light from passage into room through glass wall. We were advised that blinds will be installed shortly to correct the situation
The space,the comfort, the bed, the breakfast, the location, the staff, the modern furnishings and decor.
MODERN DECOR AND FACILITIES
All air-conditions were broken (3) and they were aware of this problem and still went ahead and placed us in the rooms! We were 3 families and they only gave us 2 access cards.
We enjoyed the stay at The Rex extremely.
Room 115 has no water flow in the one bathroom. We missed more DSTV channels like Kyknet. Cleaners came some days as late as after lunch to do the room.
Comfortable beds, crisp clean linen, friendly staff, good security. Our 2nd overnight stay, will definitely return.
