Excellent experience with a breathtaking...
Most enjoyable location with an amazing view across Knysna and its bay. Very high level of service and staff where pleasant. The Spa is without a doubt of the best I have been exposed to.
The internet connectivity from the room was very poor. Even after contacting reception, nothing changed.

Great hotel, everything you need
View from the pool, friendly staff
this hotel was just perfect for a stay in knysna. set in the hills it offers spectacular views over the lagoon and surroundings. all hotel staff were friendly with a smile and were personal. the hotel was not busy when we stayed and this just added to the relaxation we had here. knysna is not a busy place so it was good to use the top rated facilities of a 5 star hotel during day and night. we recommend this hotel, it was so nice that we stayed for another night!

Good location with views
Wi fi was excellent. Nice balcony and facilities with good views. Brilliant if you like golf (I can't play!) but still nice.
Decor good but slightly dated. Heater did not work on first day so flat cold. Dining is ok but not fine dining and relatively expensive for limited choice.

Lage. Golfplatz. Excellentes Essen im Restaurant. Grosse Suiten.
Von der Terrasse unserer Suite guckten wir weit ins Tal auf die Lagune und auf einen grossen Teil des herrlichen Golfplatzes. Die Suite besteht aus einem geräumigen Wohnraum mit Essplatz und gut eingerichteter Küche, einem großen Schlafzimmer und einem Badezimmer mit Wanne und Dusche und räumlich abgetrennter Toilette. Das Essen im Restaurant war vorzüglich. Das Personal war geschult und sehr aufmerksam. Der Golfplatz liegt unmittelbar am Hotel. Sehr gepflegt.Interessant vor allem für gute Spieler.Man muss ein E-Cart benutzen.

The hotel room was very comfortable with a nice lounge, terasse and American Kitchen. The bed room was comfortable with nice size bathroom. The view from the terasse facing Knysna was incredible and ...
We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was not that great. Breakfast is very good.

On top of the mountain. Peaceful. Excellent view. Like the pool and spa very much. Staffs were effective and friendly. Rooms were clean.
Wifi wasn't helpful. Rather use 3G.

stunning views
scenic, away from the buzz of knysna but close enough if you in the mood for crowds.
kitchen staff were not accommodating had to call the manger to see to my requirements.
