Type of hotel you expect to find in South-Africa: space, nature, nice food and delicious wines! Service at the table was fine, food very nice. Relax dining. Internetconnection very difficult although personnel tried really hard to help out their customers. Double shower but a pity that there was little pressure on it...

Rooms set around a swimming pool, the rooms were spacious with a large bathroom and a double shower. Staff were extremely helpful and the dining room very attractive with open air tables as well. The food was very good with a very good choice. The rooms had thatched ceilings.

Before coming here I was worried because of some of the poor reviews. However having stayed in the lovely hotel and it's setting I am happy to say I really enjoyed my three night here with our friends. I personally think the hotel staff cope extremely well with the heavy turnover of guests and everyone is so helpful and welcoming...

Very attractive room with double walk in shower and overlooking a delightful pool which was just right for leisurely swim. Excellent laundry service. Hotel within easy walking distance of pretty town of Knysna. Only drawback was noise level in dining room as there were no soft furnishings to absorb sound.

Overall we were disappointed with this resort. We found the chalets comfortable and clean, but the furniture TV and fittings were of only average quality. We had a poor meal in the restaurant on our first night, which was refunded when we checked out. There was very little comfortable furniture in the bar, and the restaurant where breakfast was served...

Stayed as part of Riviera Travel package. Fantastic room with high thatched roof . Lovely restaurant and great staff on the beautiful garden route. Highly recommended. Several swimming pools and very pleasant grounds. Well situated to visit Featherbed nature reserve.

This was our third visit to Knysna Hollow and was as good as the first two. The accommodation is in beautiful, thatched roof chalets located around the grounds. Nice bar and restaurant and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.

The accommodation was a separate building which was big with a big bathroom. There was a good variety of food available for breakfast which was the only meal we had there. The staff were friendly. The hotel Wifi was not very good. The location is about 30 minutes walk from the Waterfront.

The hotel is located about 2 km from Knysna Quays and from the center. the location is right in the center of the garden route and it's pretty easy to drive to both eastern cape (Plettenberg Bay and Tsitsikamma) and western cape (Mossel bay). The restaurant is fine and the rooms as well. Reccomended.
