            5.8

            Friendliness of staff.

            This was an unusually noisy hotel. Bus tour guests moving around hotel from 6.30 A.m making noise with no respect for those trying to sleep. Had to complain to reception and request them to ask their guests to keep their voices down. Corridors are not carpeted so trolleys collecting luggage early in the morning made very loud noise making sleep impossible. Internet in room extremely slow and internet voucher system not working in the manner stated- ran out much earlier than 2 hours requiring regular return to reception to collect a new voucher. Complimentary car shuttle to nearby restaurants took too long to collect us going to and coming back. Smell of urine in bathroom. Having traveled to 56 countries this was one of the most disappointing value for money hotels I have stayed in.

            A very pleasant hotel with good service in a nice location.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Excellent Location for shops and tourist attractions generally in the Knysna, Garden Route area.

            20.00hrs curfew in the pool was not enforced and was quite noisy late into the evening.

          • Single
            9.2

            The luxury of the bedding in the rooms - high quality

            The fact that you have to pay to use the hotels parking

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Location was good. Room nice and spacious and good view.

            Breakfast service was not good.

            The hotel is very central and close to a lot of good restraunts and activities on the waterfront

            10.0

            Very friendly and helpful staff Beautiful view from our lagoon facing bedroom Excellent breakfasts

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Excellent location overlooking the marina to the rear although the front elevation only overlooks a road and the town. Car parking charged at r25 per day but is 24/7 secure and convenient. Rooms a little on the small side but ok for a seaside resort. Staff very friendly and efficient. Breakfast good with wide choice. Good choice of eateries within walking distance on the harbour side and into the town. A light, airy design to the building with a good, very warm but smallish pool with sunloungers. Very relaxing place to stay.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            We liked the location we had a lovely room overlooking the marina.

            We would have liked to have been able to have light meals available.
