A couple's retreat at the lovely little hotel with the most amazing view of the heads! Breakfast and dinner was just delicious and very filling. The staff are attentive and friendly too. Waking up to that view definitely sets the day off to the right start.

Our team had beautiful and sophisticated afternoon spent at The Mount. Sipping bubbly on the patio near the crystal blue pool, a wide range of food by our side which was well crafted and also catered to fit my vegan needs, topped off with a breathtaking view of the Knysna Heads.

Sunset from Mount Knysna. Perfect end to a summers day.
Is it management policy to abuse guests? Misogynism sprinkled with sarcasm really is a low form of wit. Sorry if your business is failing but you must not make such personal remarks.
Ask management they don't handle criticism well.
