Fabulous place with loads of character, lots of wood throughout, including the rooms which were marvellous. Staff & facilities excellent. Close to shopping area & although on main road there are no noise problems. A good spot if you fancy a trip to Knysna Heads. Enjoy the drive into Knysna as well, truly picturesque.

Very nice hotel, clean and with friendly service, smiling a lot but no pressure, just gentle. Very next to waterfront and shopping zone. Good wifi. Breakfast regular, not too good, nothing special. Books to read available on the uper floor, very calm and relax situation also to drink a glass of something good tasting.
