This was our final stop on our drive of the Garden Route and a great way to finish. The hotel suite overlooked the canals which was always interesting. Great food and service and a fascinating building.

We recently stayed at The Turbine. I would definitely recommend as it's a lovely but really interesting hotel. It has all the attention to detail and is beautifully appointed but also is so interesting being set in an old power station. Very quirky and individual....More

Wonderfully situated, quiet, very unique hotel. The old power station feel gives it an authentic look like no other hotel I have stayed in. Always ask for a room that looks out on the canal -- totally worth it.

The existence of the old turbines and the decoration of rooms with old devices and gauges makes this hotel very special. The location in the laguna of Knysna is also spectacular. The bar was very nice as well.

Having stayed at The Turbine some years ago, I was thrilled to see that it had maintained its levels of service, cleanliness, providing a great experience for the relaxed traveller. Unpretentious, with the best location on Thesen's Island, never fails to impress.
