    Very good”
    I travelled with my elderly mom. We enjoyed almost 99% of what this hotel can offer. The base was perfect for exploring the town of Knysna. The reception staff were polite & helpful- Clarence & Sandswa in particular! Breakfast was adequate & varied. However I do have to point out that if you are NON WHITE the breakfast staff will not pay you much attention. Be prepared to fight for attention over coffee choices or any sort of help. I didn’t even know you can order a variety of coffee options or your eggs cooked to your preference until it was offered to my ‘white’ diners next to me & hence not me. My brown skin is not worthy perhaps?Unfortunately in a small South African town like Knysna, white skin still trumps. Ps. Natasha the accountant must learn to drink her coffee at her desk instead of the breakfast nook reception. It is very disconcerting to see an employee languidly drinking her coffee & unwilling to help you. Surely Rex provides proper desks for coffee consumption to their admin staff?

    A few issues that need to be fixed ASAP”
    Location & Nice staff
    The hotel is hidden behind a cafe and a bit hard to find at first. The staff is very nice and helpful and there is a parking provided for free. I have had read about the bathtub / shower issue and unless you experience it yourself, you can't really understand: it is very nice to have a bathtub however, it wouldn't cost much to install a shower head as it is almost impossible to actually wash yourself unless you take a bath! A door and or a curtain separating the bathtub from the bedroom (which is about 1 meter away) would also be nice for privacy. Another issue is that the wifi was limited to 100MB per 24 hours whiel it said "free wifi" on the booking. I complained about it but it was not taken seriously by the manager. Overall, beside the bathtub and wifi situations, our stay was overall satisfactory.

Currently we offer our guests 200MB free per day but I am happy to advise that we are in the process of upgrading our system. Going forward we will offer our guests free wifi. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Kind Regards, Masuda
