This resort has so much to offer for young kids. I was disappointed though with the lack of service. When we arrived, we were given the keys & directed to the chalet, however when we got to the chalet it wasn't ready yet. The cleaner had just arrived to clean it & it was well passed "checking in" time. The...

Short 2 night stay. Wooden lodge was nicely laid out. Two large bed rooms and bathrooms connecting to a central kitchen and lounge area. Nice balcony/outdoor area. The site is a little compact and steep in places which may be an issue for some less confident drivers or those with a disability. You can walk into the Quays from the...

Knysna River Club is so central to all the attractions Knysna has to offer. Our experience at Knysna River Club has been top class.
