My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the Forest Huts for three nights. We just loved it! The best sleep I have had in a long time. The huts are pretty secluded which is perfect to relax, listen to the sounds of the forest, read and connect with nature. The outdoor showers and bathrooms are super sweet and add...

We had purchased a voucher for the establishment and were not asked if we wanted to upgrade to the riverside rooms. When checking in the rooms inside the hotel were very drab and dingy with the bathroom not looking very clean. The room also did not have a fridge only a kettle. We then requested to be moved to the...

Well-run establishment. Clean room, good sleep followed by a hearty breakfast before setting off to explore the area. Hire a canoe from Eden Adventures right on the premises. Was fun! The staff were friendly and helpful too

Nature sights brilliant, forget about every problem you may have. No work to do. Excellent service. Near all game farms. Near all activities of garden routes. Food excellent, services at breakfast great. Every time i visit Fairy Knowle i am more impressed. When i leave there i feel the time of stay was to short.

The hotel has some old or vintage aspects to it, and is not the 5 star hotel, if thats what you are looking for. But, we had a wonderful stay. We stayed in one of the newly redone rooms on the river front. It was modern, clean, comfy and homely and peaceful. It had towels, a bar fridge, double bed,...
