    Bo lagoon view, and noise all night”

    I paid extra for the lagoon view, but got view over a car park. A generator running all night kept me up, so I slept very little. Not happy!

    Great Location”

    We stayed 4 nights at The Lookout and had the place to ourselves for the whole time which was great. Fantastic location within walking distance of Knysna and the Waterfront as well as the Thesen Island shops and restaurants on the doorstep. We used it as a base to explore the garden route. Meal vouchers were given to use at local restaurants at anytime not just breakfast. Couple of niggles. Wifi is good but limited 500mb per person which we seemed to use up v quickly despite only minor surfing. We asked for more and were given some but were told not to Skype of FaceTime (which we weren't). Im sorry but Wifi is so important for a wide variety of reasons these days so should be unlimited like all the other places we stayed. We were also given only 1 small bottle of water for 2 people! and the hair and body gel weren't replaced. All had to be asked for!. As i say these were minor niggles but didn't detract from our stay.

    Perfect Position ”

    The position was perfect we had a lagoon view room ask for Seahorse large room and a large spacious shower room, internet was good but if you log off you have to get a new password and people in little office not always there. The breakfast vouchers great choice go to ill de pain great breads and scrambled eggs but if a wait as it’s so busy avoid Whet just opposite very poor no flexibility with breakfast. Would definitely return here

    This place has a lot of potential however disappointed with the lack of service provided”

    This place has a lot of potential. Unfortunately we did not receive the service we paid/hoped for. We arrived around 7pm to find another 'potential guest' with our room key about to take our room that we had pre-paid for. This created a lot of confusion. We did not meet/see nor hear from any staff that work at the lodges. Due to this we were not offered (or left any instructions) any wifi code nor were we provided any breakfast which was meant to be included in our package. I understand it was late when we arrived but a note with instructions on where we were to go for breakfast and wifi details would have been nice. The place was very tidy and clean. The water was brown which I am assuming is from the low water levels in the dam. Was unsure what water we were meant to drink as again we were not given any instructions or introductions.

    Communal living area - loud & nosiry and bad setup”

    Good location

    There are a number of rooms with en suit bathrooms in a big house/lodge with a communal kitchen and lounge. One couple took over the communal living area and had friends over and parties and made a massive mess, and everyone else had to deal with the noise and mess. You cannot have strangers staying in the same house sharing communal living areas!! Very bad and impractical set up unless a group of people who are all friends all friends rent out the entire house. I will never stay there again.

    location

    un posto molto strano, una casa condivisa con persone mai viste prima,(ognuno ha la sua stanza microscopica con bagno ultramicroscopico, senza aria condizionata, senza asciugacapelli. Appena arrivati siamo stati messi in compagnia di una famiglia con bambini che avevano occupato quasi tutte le stanze, evidentemente non si poteva pretendere di tenere zitti dei bambini anche loro in vacanza, per cui dopo innumerevoli proteste da parte nostra, ci hanno spostato nella casa affianco, dove per fortuna erano tutti adulti. In conclusioni eccetto per il posto non consiglierei mai una vacanza presso questa struttura che considero oltremodo cara per i servizi offerti.
