Stayed here unfortunately for just 1 night as part of our Garden Route tour, and would definitely say one of the better hotels in the world !
I used to travel extensively for work, and have stayed in some nice places, and this is right up there with the best
Staff were exceptional, very friendly, made you feel special and would do everything possible to ensure things were the best possible for you. This is right from Checkin, to concierge, restaurant and the bar !
Upon being shown to our room (Which was a standard one - we paid 1100ZAR incl. breakfast, so not too expensive) it is not the largest by any means, but comfortable, and very modern and well equipped.
As mentioned on another review, the walls did not appear to be the thickest, we heard a couple of things from our neighbours, but this didn't cause any issues
Would thoroughly recommend eating in the restaurant - the orchid room. Was one of the best meals of the holiday, presentation is excellent and it tastes great too ! They kept advising us to book, which we didn't - and later when returning it became obvious why as it does get busy not just from hotel guests but other locals wanting a nice meal. If you book you can get a nice view of the Knysna lagoon and sea, otherwise you may end up in the middle
Breakfast was included for us, and this again was excellent, buffet service and had just about everything possible
We didnt play golf, had we had more time we would have, but the course looked lovely in very good condition and speaking to some fellow brits who had just come off the course it appeared to be a challenging and enjoyable course.
Would definitely love to return again, really nothing to complain about !
