Loved the log cabin and scenic views. Stunning location and well maintained property. Ideal for couples, families with children. One suggestion would be is to have a fireplace - it would be very useful especially during the winter months.

Thank you for a very wonderful stay. It was thoroughly enjoyed and very comfortable. We have stayed here before in Summer and that is why we came back again. We thought it would be cold in Winter but the new aircon kept us very snug. Thank you Abalone.

Check-in was fantastic. We felt welcomed immediately by the gentleman who I think stays on the property. Check-out was done by a different person not so friendly. The Lodge was perfectly situated and we loved everything about the place.

Fridge smells like old fish, room full of dust and spider webs. Bedding not clean, furniture are outdated especially the bed. I did report to management, they send lady to clean, after she left only the bedding was changed, very bad experience will never stay at Abalone again, so much more quality places in Knysna to stay.

We had the most wonderful eight nights here. We had a room with a view of the lagoon and were treated to the spa bath in our room. Everything is lovely and clean and the staff are so pleasant. It is also in the perfect spot being close to shops and the Knysna gin distillery. Will stay here again when visiting Knysna.

Absolutely beautiful place, spacious and excellent service. The only problem is the cleaning of the rooms...as we are on holiday therefore we need people cleaning our rooms everyday. Everything was working accordingly.
