“Delightful Hotel on lagoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Lovely hotel with wonderful views across the lagoon. V small swimming pool - too cold to use, even after hot day. Good base to explore the area as close to main road but very peaceful and quiet as well. Excellent host whose staff all very friendly and keen to help. Many useful suggestions made for places to visit and eat nearby. Plesant rooms with huge bathroom (at least in our room) with good quality beds and adequate facilities, although some may need a little upgrading (like TV). Free wi-fi. Good breakfasts.

Room Tip: Our room was known as the honeymoon suite which was situated overlooking the lagoon and had 2 sides...

If you are ever in Knysna...do stay here!!
Beautiful setting right on the edge of the lagoon which gives off a cooling breeze whilst sunbathing especially if you are like myself who cannot stand too much sun.
The garden is lovely...with a pond where four large birds came to drink several times a day.

The decor of the rooms very nice,complete with sofas and terraces.There is also a self-catering unit if you prefer to do your "own thing".

Nothing is too much trouble for the owner should you require any help at all...he makes everyone feel special..

Please stay here...well worth it.

We had a great stay at Point Lodge where RYK and Charles made sure that we enjoyed every single day we were there. We booked a normal room but when they heard we were on honeymoon they moved us to the honeymoon suite for no charge. RYK gave us enough space when we needed it and helped when we needed it. The room was beautiful as well as the bathroom which was a circular room with a old Victorian bath and a large shower.

The room was cleaned everyday when we went out and the breakfast every morning was delicious and the cutlery and decorations were set expertly. RYK personally goes out each morning to pick flowers from his gardens to set the mood.

The swimming pool was clean and the view was incredible as it looked out over the lagoon.

Thank you for a great service and stay, we thoroughly enjoyed it and I can recommend it to anyone going to Knysna.

Four of us (2 couples) spent 3 nights here and would highly recommend it. The location was lovely overlooking the lagoon and easy to get in to town (30 minute walk). Everyone very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a good size, maybe could do with a bit of updating - our shower tray was blocked but was very swiftly fixed. Great breakfasts with a great view. Pool looked good but weather not warm enough to try! Lovely garden and plenty of furnture to relax in the garden

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite which is nicely entered through the garden. You have an amazing view over the lagoon, the room is a good size with a two seater sofa, coffee table, fireplace and en-suite. The bathroom with a free-standing bath tub, shower and vanity unit is lovingly decorated.

The Lodge is about 1.5 km away from the marina - you can't walk to the marina but parking spaces are provided.

The breakfast buffet is basic but the owners take great care of you and will offer a cooked breakfast to your preferences.

It's good value for money and we were very happy with our suite
