Reviewed 16 October 2017

I was on a motorbike trip and happened to stay there. Boy, what an experience! The setting, locality, hospitality, accommodation, absolutely 5-star! Fantastic restaurants all around you, n Thesens Island, also probably the safest place in South Africa! Here, you park your car and enjoy the Knysna Lagoon and everything in Knysna within safe walking distance!

Room Tip: Lagoon facing if available but it really does not matter!

lovely room huge bath and spacious bathroom. Sadly no towels on arrival but quickly sorted. Cold drinking water in fridge appreciated but would also like to have fresh milk for coffee rather than small pods. a special treat to go somewhere luxurious close to home but with a feeling of being 'away'
A nice touch were the meal vouchers for use in any of four restaurants, we chose breakfast at fabulous Ile de Pain right next door!

Hi punsunr,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for The Lofts.
We do apologise about the towels not being in the room. Regarding the fresh milk it is always difficult to keep a large amount of fresh milk, that is why we ask guests upon booking confirmation if they have any special requests and we are more than happy to put fresh milk in the room if it is requested.

We are really glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay and the breakfast vouchers.

We look forward to welcoming you back fro your next special treat.

Have a wonderful day,
The Lofts Boutique Hotel Team

We recently had another opportunity of overnight in Knysna, this time we decided to stay on Thesen Island within walking distance to a number of good restaurants. The Lofts Boutique Hotel was an amazing surprise. Very, very nice, interesting, modern and comfortable, we will certainly stay there again.

What a stunning place! Location, location, location. We loved our stay at the Lofts and we will definitely be back. There was obviously a lot of creativity and thought gone into the design as this is a converted boat shed. The friendliness and service from the staff was outstanding, the views from our room was spectacular, our room was spacious and well designed and we really loved enjoying a glass (or 4) of Sauvignon Blanc on our balcony enjoying the sunset overlooking the beautiful Knysna river estuary! Thank you team.
