Spent four nights here during our 3 week holiday on the Garden route. From the moment we arrived the service by Nicole and her team was simply first class. The first thing that greeted my wife and I was the spectacular views towards the Heads at Knysna. Unbelievable! Following that we had a tour of the facility and the standard...

We had a fabulous welcome and the location is stunning and so peaceful, right above Knysna looking down. Chilled wine and beer were very welcome after a hot drive. The rooms are beautifully appointed (even though my husband would have preferred a more substantial bathroom door). Patio doors from each room take you straight onto the garden a pool area....

We had a lovely stay with Nicole for 1 night. The property is lovely, the views and pool are gorgeous. The rooms are modern and have everything you need. A perfect base to explore Knysna from and such good value breakfast with a view was lovely. Would love to stay for longer if we are in the area again.
