We love the knysna river club. The wood cabins near the lake set in a garden like resort are both relaxing and refreshing. Bedding is clean and comfy. They have heater blankets for winter nights and puffy cushions to sink into. The kitchen and bathroom have all the basics you will need and there's an outdoor weber for BBQ or...

The River Club easily qualify for its four star status. Quiet and tranquil location on the banks of the lagoon, right opposite Thesens Island, but easily accessible from all main routes. Direct access to the extensive brick-paved shore foot path and paddle boat pier. The management was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The top floor single bedroom unit was very peaceful,...

Well equipped, lovely setting, central, good hospitality. We were there over easter and my daughter lived the easter egg hunt. Putt putt was a hit, along with the trampoline. Would have been better if the cupboard doors opened fully (slight irritation)

What I liked: The kitchen is modern and very well equipped! The dishes and all the kitchen items were nice and clean to use. The rooms are big enough to enjoy. I liked that we didn't have to share the bathroom with the kids. I also liked the braai facilities and the large porch. The Easter hunt was a nice...

Spent 2 rainy nights here...felt almost like camping in the woods, but a lot more comfortable. Could be a nice place for a weekend stay for young families. All the chalets have a kitchen area with microwave/refrigerator/electric kettle, etc. The Terrace Restaurant offers a good breakfast. The hostess, Tammy, was very accommodating.
