Nice room with lots of wood... Very compact and little room to lay down the suitcases. However, a good double bed, single bed and tv. The bathroom is spacious and the shower is okay in the bathtub. Clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly and excellent service, also during the neat breakfast. In the garden is a nice swimming...

Loved it. It has everything you need and it's close to the city center so easy access to restaurants for dinner and shops for browsing Knysna. The breakfast was also great and room was clean and neat, with little treats to make us feel more special.

This hotel is ideally situated for a quick walk to the restaurants and to the little Knysna has to offer. The hotel is basically a wooded lodge-lovely building, but would better suit a different location. The rooms were good as was the bathroom. Decent breakfast included. I have only rated this a "3" though because of the staff. This was...

Stayed at the Graywood Hotel on February 15, 2016. We have been charged TWICE on our credit card statement. Have contacted the Hotel three times but have yet to be issued a credit for the double payment! MAKE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT if you choose to stay at this hotel.

We stayed here for two nights during a road trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. After staying in Stellenbosch we initially found the room very basic, and a little noisy from the street behind. After settling in, however, we grew fond of the location as it was easy to walk to the shops and the port and we realised...

The location of this hotel was second to none. It’s in a great spot situated within easy walking distance to the marina tourist area and also a short stroll to the Quay. It couldn’t of been more convenient to get to the hot spots of Knysna. Other plus points of the hotel were the pool area which was really charming...

Lots of wood, railway memorabilia , inner courtyard with tropical plants,birds etc and pool. Within walking distance of everything. Breakfast pretty good, secure parking was good. Nice feel about hotel, make sure room on first floor. Reception staff could be a little friendlier

We stayed at the Graywood Hotel this December. It was a good hotel, however we didn't feel like it was the greatest place that we have ever visited. The guy at reception was not the most friendly guy, the room was kind of small and the breakfast in the morning was not the greatest we have ever had. Nothing was...

What a Gem!! Step out of the business of Knysna commercial centre into the enchanted forest....birds swooping down in the centre of the hotel! We had a marvellous stay. Remember that it is located on a rather busy street so one cannot escape the traffic, we closed the bathroom door and had the aircon on, so a peaceful sleep. The...

The interior courtyard is a jungle landscape with birds, lizards and other critters. The all wooden structure is really neat and the windows open to the courtyard ( specify courtyard rooms ) allowing fresh air and interesting animal sounds to waft in to your room. Full baths and beds with very nice linens help seal the deal. Breakfast is included...
