The hotel has a theme of South African Railways. It is done in wood and is beautiful. The rooms are comfortable and the dining hall is very charming. It also has a small swimming pool. We visited in winters ( July). It was a very comfortable and memorable stay.

Over all a great stay in the heart of Knysna, a real affordable hotel. Only issue I had was with the bath water which turned yellow due to the old pipes. Being a South African we are used to this but not good impression for tourists

An excellent place to stay in Knysna, close to waterfront area.. restaurants and shopping center are at walking distance.. good spacious rooms.. breakfast buffet choices could have been better.. fully wooden structure gives an antique feeling.. there are lots of birds making their nests.. no complaints whatsoever..

The hotel , though looks small from outside,is well maintained, and is in the centre of town ( though the town sleeps at 7 pm). The appearance and feeling is as that of well appointed cabins inside the forest. The rooms are moderate in size. Wifi is available. Staff is cooperative and the breakfast is good. Overall experience was satisfying...

Nice room with lots of wood... Very compact and little room to lay down the suitcases. However, a good double bed, single bed and tv. The bathroom is spacious and the shower is okay in the bathtub. Clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly and excellent service, also during the neat breakfast. In the garden is a nice swimming...

Loved it. It has everything you need and it's close to the city center so easy access to restaurants for dinner and shops for browsing Knysna. The breakfast was also great and room was clean and neat, with little treats to make us feel more special.

This hotel is ideally situated for a quick walk to the restaurants and to the little Knysna has to offer. The hotel is basically a wooded lodge-lovely building, but would better suit a different location. The rooms were good as was the bathroom. Decent breakfast included. I have only rated this a "3" though because of the staff. This was...
