We spent a full week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was perfect and the staff very helpful. Would most certainly go back again sometime. There is so much to see and do in and surrounding Knysna.

My stay was excellent, very nice resort, central and good service. We stayed out of season so resort was quiet, just the way we like it. Chalets are well maintained and spacious. Amenities excellent and good space for kids

This place is amazing. This was our second visit and we will come again and again. The log cabins is very practical and nice to stay in. The staff were very friendly and we were even invited for cupcakes and tea. We also got discount to some of the nearby attractions. We will definitely visit again.

The Knysna River club has the loveliest view of the Knysna Heads . The log cabins are really cosy and although we were fortunate to have an apartment with a view , I was aware that there were people who did not . The apartments are reasonably well maintained with everything you may need on a break . On booking...

The location near the lagoon and walking path are very good for a walk or biking. The chalets are spacious clean and well maintained. We felt like staying on. The restaurant was closed so the arrangements for breakfast were made at a resturant on the pier. We wouldn't have asked for anything better.

We had the upstairs garden cabin - well equipped, clean and large. Nice patio area and braai facility also provided. Cleaned daily- except Sundays. Lovely pathway along the lagoon for a run, stroll or bike ride. Only recommendation I would have is that the bathrooms be renovated/ upgraded a bit. Shower over tub was a little small and shower head...
