We had a great time at Hamilton Manor. Werner went "over and above" to ensure everything went well. Staff rearranged furniture to allow more space - location is excellent and views are amazing. Taxi was arranged for evening outing and assistance offered in the evening...More

So glad we booked Hamilton Manor as our base to visit the many places in and around Knysna. As soon as we arrived we were offered a drink which was served on the terrace. I had seen photos of the view over the lagoon but...More
The view is wonderful and the rooms divine. We were treated so well by General Manager, Werne, we felt like one of the family! The breakfast is also recommended. Our only regret is that we stayed only one night.
Everything was more than perfect: lovely manager Werner, breakfast, rooms, view. When we arrived we immediately regretted not staying longer. The only small thing that bugged us was the loud fridge in the room.
It also felt very safe there which is important in South...More
The view is simply amazing! It's a small hotel located in a nice area although the drive to the Manor itself it pretty steep. The manager was very friendly and helpful and recommended a really nice restaurant to eat. The bathroom was overall clean but...More

Hi there potential client.
As we only need air conditioning in Knysna only two months of the year we do not have it in the rooms, but every room is fitted with a coolair unit that works with water and ice packs that we supply.

Hi Nicoli I am deeply sorry that you were not comfortable in your room.
I have to ensure you that I never switch any geysers off as you mentioned it is a business, I am not sure why your water was luke warm but have checked the geyser and it was working well.
My apologies for the inconvenience.
My other concern was the bed you mentioned, as it is a fairly new bed and a Cloud nine King size bed with an pillow top and does not have springs at all.
After your review I went and slept the night in it to test it for myself and was very comfortable.
I also find it surprising as I have had numerous compliments on my beds and even e-mails (which I can forward to you) asking me what type of beds I have as they are considering upgrading their beds at home to the same as mine since it was so comfortable.
For this reason you will understand that I cannot through a fairly new bed out that has nothing wrong with it, but I can offer you Suite 3 which is on the upper level and gets full morning and mid day sun.
Again the bed is a newish king cloud nine with pillow top and has no springs at all.
