I loved the deco, the spacious honeymoon suite, the peace and quite and the view from our room. The staff was very pleasent and helped us a lot. The spa treatment was very nice
The bath could be a bit bigger for both of us :)
The setting and service
Not really, but room was tiny!
the facility itself and the food
i cannot think of anything
Staff very helpful and friendly
WiFi was awful difficult to log on and had to keep renewing password (which was in very small writing) family in New Zealand couldn't contact me as wifi use had run out in the nigh dreadful! Also would have preferred to serve ourselves to cereals and fruit at breakfast
The Hotel and its location. The extraodinar interior.
No personal attention, garbage at the reception outside : very smelly. No -one to carry my bags to and from car. Had to wait for the person. The receptionist was friendly she did it. Service in cafe not attentive .I did not want a kitchen in my room. I booked a deluxe room not a self catering unit. The picture on the internet did not reflect what we got.
Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Adèle
Turbine is a great located hotel in Knysna. Close to great golf at Knysna, Pezula and Simola. Very nice personal touch and close to restaurants.
A nice quirky hotel in a good location. The food was excellent and the staff welcoming.
Minor point but the WiFi was intermittent.
Excellent bar with really good drinks! Nice pool area Quirky design hotel Great balcony and views!
Our Booking.com-reservation was for a luxury room. We got a standard room. The food was somewhat cold when served at dinner The open wall between the bathroom and the bedroom. Small bedroom Very tired internetservice with lousy access-code system
location - breakfast - character
wifi times out after each session
Beautiful decorating. Comfortable bed. Spacious bathrooms.
Beautiful and unique hotel - definately does the internet photo's justice Very peaceful environment. Spacious rooms - especially when compared to most other 5 star boutique hotels. Excellent service - the aircon or something made a lot of noise in our room and when the could not locate the source they moved us to another room down the hall for the night without any fuss Great breakfast! Would definately stay there again and recommend it to others
The aircon/ducting causing a lot of noise in our room - but they were very helpful by moving us to a different room
NOT ENOUGH WATER IN ROOM.
The interior decor is most unusual and makes it a very interesting hotel to stay in. Food excellent and extended hours of dinning room very handy if you wish to sleep late in the morning or get back late from an outing.
Splendid views. Perfect location for a relaxing getaway from buzzing JHB. Lovely rooms. It was staying in a museum, we learnt something new everyday. We loved the exclusivity, never overcrowded. Enjoyed the boat trip to the heads. overall, lovely experience, and we would recommend anybody to stay at the Turbine hotel. We will definitely go back.
The pomptness of the hotel staff could be improved. We booked 90mins spa treatments, but we were not impressed with the treatments. It felt like the therapists were merely smering oil all over our bodies. (some benchmarking is required in that area).
amazing design hotel built at a former power house, impressive machines and turbine exhibits, modern well appointed rooms
breakfast personell slow, hair in fruit platter
Exceptional decor and service, out of the ordinary and different! Loved the flair and environment!
The location is excellent. We stayed in a suite which was very well equipped and had a lovely view. The restaurant food was very good.
The hot breakfasts could have been better presented. The impression we gained was one of no care taken and just dump the food on a plate. Other than that -- a well run hotel
Beautiful views, very interesting interior, very good breakfast
The staff can be more involved, giving us more info about the area.
the setup from the hotel Service Breakfast excellent location
ab sens of toilet tries
Beautiful place. Would highly recommend it. Nothing was a problem for them as they went out of their way to cater for my gluten intolerance needs. The chef was wonderful.
This hotel made our stay in Kysna, in fact it was the most spectacular few days we spent in South Africa. The restored hotel, the gorgeous well-appointed rooms with attention to detail, the delicious restaurants and quality service - this was a stay we'll remember for a very long time.
we only had 2 days
A lot of attention to detail has been put into creating a unique hotel. The staff are most helpful.
The bedrooms are on the small side, but have a lovely large bed which is a bit hard. There are opening shutters into the bathroom which give no "noise" privacy.
The decor and location
Shower was not as clean as it could have been....mildew
Excellent hotel, very comfortable and stylish, interesting design. Great location, friendly and helpful staff.
