Nice surrounding and actually a good accommodation.... but.... The rooms were in a bad condition. Beds weren't made, the bathrooms not cleaned (for days!) and hair and toenails on the floor, very unhygienic... the staff needed 3 (!) attempts to clean the rooms properly. Instead of saying sorry I heard from the hotel manager: You must understand, we had too...

We were surprised by the space and Equipment offered. The Bungalows are very well equipped, with kitchen utensils, even a barbeque. Spent two nights there and truly enjoyed sitting outside, listening to the birds in the trees and doing nothing. Central location to explore around Knysna - a car is not compulsory, however definitively an advantage.

We stayed here just before Christmas and had a lovely time as a family. The cabins are quite close to each other but the set up is very cleverly done and you do not feel as though you are overlooked. The swimming pool area was very nice and secure and the kiddies pool was ideal for our three year old....
