    This is a wonderful place with such a relaxed atmosphere and great staff. We had a great room (Lady Anne Suite) which was well worth upgrading to if you can afford it (hallway, bedroom,sitting room bathroom and huge balcony - like a self contained apartment)....More

    What an amazing place! Fabulous room with a four poster bed. Great personal service, really welcoming. Very relaxing. Grand without going overboard, great views over Knysna water. Breakfast was also fantastic.

    Great stay at St James, Rooms were very spacious and staff efficient and very friendly. The restaurant was a bonus when we didn't want to eat out and served excellent food. All in all no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
