We enjoyed our stay at fairy Knowe Hotel and were particularly impressed when they phoned to inform us that my daughter had left behind her toilet bag and we were able to collect it on our return trip. The one weakness is the limited amount of in-house communication with regard to such things as meals and menus and how to...

Good day Overall we enjoy our stay, except for the limited choice of breakfast items for vegans. Fruits were limited. Electricity was also a problem, as a few of the lights in our apartment was not working and they could not fix it. Thanks

A very nice little spot in the western cape. Very nicely situated in a private area with loads of free activities. I would recommend it to anyone. Ideal for solo or family stays. Make sure you book as they sell out quick

We enjoyed our 4 nights at this hotel, set on the river bank with lovely views of the river. Quiet setting, friendly helpful staff, good breakfasts and centrally placed in a lovely part of the garden route. Would be nice to have some heating in bedrooms on winter nights. We took a hot water bottle which was great.

a great place to stay if you are looking for peaceful surroundings while being close to the town of George and Knysna. Stay in the original Dumbelton family home on the banks of the Touw River and a short drive to the beach.

We arrived on a Sunday evening which was very quiet. There was some confusion with our room but after being taken to two not so great rooms with double beds, we were taken to our lovely room with twin beds. The gentlemen, who seemed young and not a full time staff member, handled the problem really well and was determined...

Our stay at Fairy Knowe was really great. Breakfast was absolutely beautiful and we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful dinners that are served. The rooms were lovely too, however it was really cold and there were no heaters available. Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you
