We had a large group booking. The accommodation was charming, I loved the colour scheme in my room it was very calming. The air conditioning kept cutting in & out but was not distracting. Personally, I would not complain about any of the services provided at Knysna Hollow, I would certainly stay there again. The staff were very friendly, the porters were very quick to deliver our luggage to our rooms. The fireplace in the lounge/dining area was welcoming on a cool/wet evening (umbrellas were available in the foyer to get from reception to the rooms), & there was a fine selection of food for our evening meal & breakfast. A gift shop is at the entrance to the foyer but it was not opened when we arrived late in the afternoon & had only just opened as we were leaving. It had a nice selection of gifts but did not see the prices. On a nice warm day it would be lovely to sit by the pool with a glass of wine & a book & take some time out, but when you are on a very busy coach tour that is a bit hard to do. ....maybe next time I will have more time to R&R at this lovely place.

The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great, 5 minutes from central Knysna.
This is the umpteenth time we have stayed there and we have never been disappointed, the times when something went wrong the management got it fixed very quickly.
The food is good. Breakfast is full English with some Continental dishes offered.
The bar is well stocked with a good selection of South African wines, craft beers and standard SA beers.
Dinners are tasty with enough selection of local and international dishes.
The hotel is popular with international groups touring in South Africa.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spread on ground level and there are a number of swimming pools on the property.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Knysna Hollow, after staying at the Cape Town Hollow we were excited to stay here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the grounds were beautiful. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was lovely! Unfortunately, we feel our experience was let down by the cleanliness of the rooms. We asked to move rooms and whilst the second room was an improvement the room was rather tired (shower not fully functioning), had a strange damp smell (apparently this comes from the thatch) and it was covered in dust. On the whole we enjoyed our stay here but feel the rooms should have been more clean and need updating!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Knysna Hollow Country Estate. Our client had booked us into a standard room. The rooms are spacious and offer the basic services ie coffee/ tea/ wi-fi / hair dryer/ safe etc. The setting of the Estate is wonderful with plenty of nature all around. Conveniently close to town.

What made the stay for us, was the friendly and welcoming manner of the staff. The staff serving breakfast were always willing to assist and on hand to fill up the coffee cup. On the last day we went for breakfast later than usual and ran slightly over the breakfast time but the staff didn't chase us away instead they were still willing to refill our coffee cups as usual with happy smiles and told us not to worry, to enjoy ourselves.
A rare treat in this day and age....Thank you!!!
