    We stayed here for three nights in February. The hotel is in a beautiful position by the lagoon and has a lot of garden area. There is a reasonable size swimming pool with sun loungers which makes for a pleasant afternoon. The pool is served...More

    Excellent world class comfort. Superbe setting We had a suite overlooking the harbour. Wonderful views which changed by the time of day. Watch African birds on the manicured lawns. Relax in one of several pools or the superb bar and peaceful lounges

    Loved this hotel. Very relaxed & charming. The views of the lagoon were stunning & the grounds beautiful. We didn't stay for dinner preferring to head into Knysna, but breakfast was excellent, staff were really friendly and the morning car wash an unexpected bonus!
