What better way to enjoy Knysna than a stay on an island, located not only in the heart of the Knysna Lagoon, but also in a Blue Flag Marina in the very centre of Knysna? Set within the remodelled timber frame of the old Knysna boatbuilding shed, the hotel rooms take one's breath away with their industrial refurbishment and design. This fresh, smart-casual approach is far from the ordinary, and caters well to every desire. Multiple room options are presented in various styles: Exclusive Lagoon Suites Luxury Loft Suites Luxury Units with Self-catering Facilities

Lofts Boutique is simply a stunning place. It doesn’t feel like a hotel in the traditional sense. The location is spectacular, the staff are friendly and the breakfasts delicious. Book one of the rooms with a view over the water.

Hi robert_t_coates, Your lovely review of The Lofts is truly appreciated. Our team take a lot of pride in their work and hearing that you found them friendly and the breakfast delicious warms our heart. Booking an Exclusive Lagoon Suite is advisable as the views over the Knysna Hills and estuary is well worth it. We hope to welcome you back again soon, The Lofts Boutique Hotel Team

This was our 2nd visit to the hotel. We enjoy the wonderful views, friendly staff and delicious breakfasts in a peaceful setting. It is well worth splashing out on the lagoon suites. Take binoculars to view the birds and watch the world go by.

We stayed at the Lofts for 2 nights in one of the rooms overlooking the water which had a huge terrace, what a fantastic view. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too good when we were there so we couldn't go kayaking as planned. The surrounding countryside is spectacular but the

Hi Natthebat, Thanks for taking a moment to write a review for The Lofts. We appreciate feedback as this assists us in growing and improving. On the weather note we wish we could ensure perfect sunny weather for all our guests but as our natural habitat really needs rain at the moment we are extremely appreciative for every drop. If a more authentic experience was what you were looking for we would happily have recommended a few restaurants further to which you could have taken a taxi. Regarding breakfast we would really appreciate feedback on this with recommendations, this would assist us greatly as it is extremely difficult finding a good balance for all dietary requirements with good quality and local produce. Do note the bakery does not take reservations and yes they are extremely popular hence why they put guest names on a wait list when they are full. Your feedback would be appreciated. We look forward to welcome you back, The Lofts Boutique Hotel Team

Had coffee and a very tasty blueberry muffin in a fabulous setting, part of the hotel lobby. The barista was lovely, helpful and very courteous. It really is a fabulous place in a very smart location.
