This place is made for those times that you want to break away from everyday hassles and rush. Peace and quiet to the mind and soul . Off the main roads and away from the mainstream. Wide open spaces on the grounds. For that time alone or with your loved one

The suites are exceptional set to pamper the most discerning visitor. The setting is peaceful but close to all the amenities that Knysna has to offer. The staff are super friendly and efficient and the menu is a la carte, superbly prepared. Breakfast will blow you away. Excellent value for money.

This is a good hotel to stay at but it is a hotel. The main issue, the biggest issue, for travellers especially, is WiFi. Receptions staff spent easily 70% of their day trying to resolve guest connectivity issues with this system - its CRAP! Someone do something about this for goodness sake! For the rest it has great rooms but...

Reasonable choice of food, and huge rooms - more like a Board Room, with full kitchen facilities but, as we only stayed 2 nights en route to Cape Town, we really only made use of the comfortable bedroom and luxury bathroom with all toiletries. Our ground floor room had patios on 2 sides, with nice views of the grounds and...

Although the bed was comfortable, it was not properly aired, and was damp at first. Otherwise the room was sufficiently spacious, even though as 2 adults we had the 2nd half of shared accommodation (suffix A on room number). There was a large balcony - shared with our "parents"! The grounds were large and good for bird-watching over the lagoon....
