Waterfront location is what i found most appealing. Apart from that there is a shopping area just next to the hotel.The hotel is clean and comfortable . The view is one of a kind , the posterior part of the hotel is flanked by many yacht's. The internet is free and available to all.

This was far far better from capetonian in Capetown. A welcome change after 3 bad nights in capetown. It had much more than i expected. The rooms were good. There was everything i needed there. It was right next to the waterfront. We reached there on saturday evening which gave us very little time to explore the area around as markets are closed on sundays there. however the waterfront was open. this hotel being in the waterfront itself proved to be very comfortable for us. it is located excellentley. Very comfortable and soothing.

The waterfront area is literally less that 15 footstepaway. Bed were comfy and had a good sleep there. So many shop and places to eat on the waterfront. If you in Knysna or doing the garden route well worth a stay for the price and location.

Stayed at the Protea Hotel for two nights, rooms were clean. Parking was good. View from my room wasn't great as it was facing the street but that never bothered me as we weren't in the room much as there's a lot to see and do in Knysna. Location of the hotel is good right on the waterfront and close to shops and restaurants.

The location is excellent.The rooms are large and well appointed. However the rest of the hotel is nothing special. . No luches or dinners are served at the hotel (althought there are restaurants nearby) there is no bar fridge. The hotel has more of a motel feel. I dont feel it deserves a 4 star rateing and personaly would rate it as a three star. At a 4 star price range you could probaly do better.

A very nice holiday inn- type hotel on the knysna waterfront. Would have preferred going for one of the millions of bed and breakfasts in and around knysna. However, it was clean, and they gave us a free upgrade to a lagoon facing room with a bottle of champaigne (we were on our honeymoon). There is a great breakfast place 2 blocks away called mon petit pain – well worth skipping the included hotel breakfast. (I ended up having a second breakfast after eating the fairly good included hotel breakfast)

We stayed in October 2009 in two rooms side by side. I was a little disappointed we could not get interconnecting rooms but this wasn't a massive issue. The location is great with the waterfront restaurants a very short walk away. The pool was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a basic no frills motel but it's comfortable.
