Very cool place, great facilities. Fantastic beach right on your doorstep. Excellent food at the restaurant.

Unfortunately the beds were hard, not sure I'd return, my family struggled to sleep. Maybe it's just preference.

First time in Knysna and what a way to kick it off. Friendly staff, a special mention to Nkosi, he's brilliant. The restaurant has great food and is clean with an excellent view of the ocean. Special mention to Teenage, excellent waiter. The beach isn't busy, it's clean and safe. The scenery is amazing. It made for a wonderful wedding.

Everything was excellent. From making the booking, all the way through to check-out. Staff are friendly, rooms are clean and well equipped, and the scenery is to die for!
The GM, Mr. Grobbelaar, was very welcoming and I must say, this establishment is very well run. Well done!
