The place is beautiful! Awesome friendly staff, pretty rooms and - best of all - the scenery. Can't recommend this enough. Do yourself a favour and book some kayaks and go out on the river, best part of my trip.

not sure how opinions can differ so much, we arrived much to early for check in , we sat at the little restaurant on the stoep enjoyoing the athmosphere. when i ordered coffee was informed it might taste salty due to the water. i enjoyed freshly baked cake and coffee, no problem, we were shown to our room an hour later but still much earlier than check in time. huge open plan room and a bathroom to die for!! big, soft, fluffy towels, a huge showe and spa bath. in the open plan kitchen hand made cookies, bottled water, filter coffee with as well as all the normal coffee and teas, welcome note, hand made cholocates , a sip of sherry,

Room Tip: there is a pool infront of some rooms, it might be noisy in summer

Beautiful setting and kayaks available for exploring the Goukamma River. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the food was excellent. This hotel goes to extra effort to make sure it's visitors feel welcomed.

Location good
Room good
We booked five rooms
Room service is self service
No phone to connect with reception
Reception closed at 6 pm
They give number to contact
So in hotel we have to find person to contact
Rooms they say they checked before giving keys had no light in bathrooms when we reached in evening
As usual they say we have checked everything
Tried to replace out tube but It was not with them
Put table lamp in bathroom from another room
What a Service.
Now come real story
We left early in morning at 7:30 am after breakfast which they prepared early for us with request
We had taken keys with us not given for room cleaning and when we came in evening at 6:30 pm we have been given invoice for damage wall heater for 450 rands
We tried to talk to responsible person
They told us our boss will come and talk to you in your room
No one came at night
We explain them when we left everything was ok
Even we switch off all light
We gave them example what will you do if I say that I have lost my money from rooms
No answer
No one listened to us and not shown us damage thing
Next morning early at 7 am when we were leaving for our flight they told your vehicle will not go unless you clear our dues and will call police
Boss was so rude he didn't listen any thing from us and was rude to tell now police will talk to you
No one listened to us and disheartened I paid all their dues and then they allowed us to go
So if you want to get kidnapped you can go there.

When our tour operator email them they rudely reply we sort their complaints and we cannot try to make happy every one
We paid you before two months to see we have pleasant stay and not to get juggle at time of our arrival
Beware before going to this lonely place away from knysna city

This is a wonderful place to stay. The facilities are great, the nature fantastic, the staff full of smiles and ever helpful. You should stay here if you want to be treated like a king (or queen)! The food was very good and the early morning canoe ride was just a blessing.
