    Absolutely top marks to St James. Arrived slightly out of season, room upgraded, restaurant first class and service absolutely superb- even had my car washed each morning. Well maintained property over-looking lagoon. It does not get better than this. Well done all at St James.

    Location is slightly away from the main market place, where all the restaurants and shopping area is located. Appreciated that they arranged to wash my car every morning. Also appreciated the vegetarian stuff they made specially for us vegetarians, very helpful and warm staff

    - Great rooms, great breakfast, great bay view - One of the best beds we have ever slept on - Felt the staff was a bit too cold (maybe because we stayed at very warm guesthouses on the same trip), but also very helpful -...More

    A lovely lagoon side hotel set in pleasant grounds. Great room, bed and en-suite. Wonderful food and all in all a great place to stay in Knysna. Please could you make your GPS/Sat Nav instructions a little clearer.
