Reviewed 19 March 2017

It was most enjoyable to stay in a hotel where the food was delicious and beautifully served. The accommodation was charming and set round one of the three pools. It was tranquil and relaxing. We walked to the waterside in about 20 mins, where there were shops and restaurants galore.

We stayed at Knysna Hollow for 3 nights around 20th Feb and we both thought it was fabulous. We loved our little garden chalet, it was spacious, the bed was comfortable, bathroom large, and the ceiling fan worked a treat; it wasn't noisy and so much better than air con. We walked into the town and the harbour which, although...

Our large group was dispersed into rooms located in different directions in this one-story hotel. It took us a while and some help from the very friendly staff to find our way around in this labyrinth, but other than that, it turned out to be an outstanding place to spend a night or two. The rooms were spacious, quiet and...

This estate property with single story rooms is a few Km out of town, but close enough to easily access all restaurants, shops etc in Knysna. The rooms/chalets have thatched roofs that add character to the place. There is a good restaurant on-site with great options for indoor or outdoor sitting. The rooms are good, relatively large but the carpet...
