Where to stay in Knysna??? HELP

I am so confused as there seems to be zillions of places to stay in Knysna. We are a family of 4x adults (grandparents, mom, dad) and 2x children (ages 13 and 11) and looking for affordable (we are paying in SA rands), clean, comfortable, unique accommodation that is close to all amenities but not noisy centre of town.

You can look into The Lofts Boutique Hotel. It is located on Thesen Island, Knysna.

We spent 3 nights there last July with our two children 12 and 10. We stayed in one of their 2 bedroom self catering apartments.

It is right on the lagoon, and very quite and peaceful, but walking distances to several restaurants, and a short drive away from town.

Look at Abalone self-catering. Near town, but on a hillside overlooking the water.

Have a look at Armadillo Studios, fantastic setting and very comfortable. Only 10mins drive from the center part of town and not with in walking distance though. But exactly what you are looking for. The apartments is located at the bottom of the house and with your own parking bays and entrance as well. Have a look at www.armadillostudios.co.za for more info.

Going in June with two teens and after much research we decided on belvidere manor. We get our own little cottage with the amenities of a hotel. Read lots of great TA reviews.
