    Great Location...helpful staff. The 2 bedroom apartment was awesome, modern finishes....a walk from the waterfront where you have a variety of restaurants to choose from. I will definitely be coming back here.

    It wasn't easy to find, apple maps services showed us a different direction. But once we arrived it was very good, super fast check in and very nice rooms. The breakfast was plenty. The hotel is near to the best reastaurants in Knysna walking distance.More
