    the exelent setting -

    the breakfast was not very good and the staff could not cope with the holiday rush

  • 6.2
    Good

    Location of the hotel is the best thing about the hotel, it is ideal for people who visit Knysna for boat trips.

    Hotel only serves breakfast and not lunch or dinner. Internet service is available only at some hot points and not in your room.

    Excellent Location. Just across the waterfront with a great view of waterfront. Good Proximity to shopping etc Hotel Staff is very nice and helpful.

    Lunch etc not available within the hotel but they would order from restaurants around. Rooms are quite small.

    Absolutely its location. The rooms overlooking the yacht basin and the view 24 hours a day.

    I spendt the time at the hotel with my 8 year old son. If it was slightly less pricy, I would stay more aften.

    As returning guests we were complimentary upgraded to a lagoon-facing view - this was really nice and the lagoon facing room was great and had the most gorgeous views - it definately made our stay much more special. Thanks for a wonderful stay - we will be back next year!

    Superb

    The hotel is located in the Waterfront area next to the restaurants and shops. We had a lagoon facing room with a very small balcony. Note that not all lagoon facing rooms have a balcony so you may need to request one. Breakfast was excellent and included in the price. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. One of the best hotels on our two week trip

    Friendly efficient staff especially at check-in. Excellent standards of comfort throughout hotel and meets standards you would expect from the Protea chain. Good location on waterfront with a number of good restaurants very nearby. Free internet is a bonus.
