Knysna Hollow Country Estate
Ranked #11 of 30 Hotels in Knysna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 January 2012

An excellent three star hotel which deserves a higher rating. The rooms are scattered around the site in single-storey thatched roof buildings, grouped around three swimming pools; an idyllic setting in well-maintained gardens. The rooms are clean, large, high ceilinged - you look up into the pitched thatched roof. There is no air conditioning but the large fan located over the bed provided quite a comfortable environment. Food was of excellent quality served in a bright and welcoming dining room. Overall a high quality hotel which is far better than many four-star rated establishments. The one drawback is that it is located some distance from the centre of Knysna and the waterfront and would be a difficult walk in the heat of summer. A relaxing stay: recommended.

My wife and myself stayed at the Kynsna Hollow for 3 nights between Dec 29 - Jan 01. It is place that we found very homely, the staff extremely hospitable and helpful.

A particular mention to be made of Francois - he was very helpful in letting us know about the various sights that need to be seen in the local area and Charlene was helpful in calling the various places and making the reservations.

The only flip side we saw was the unavailability of a double bed. In our room - we had two twin side beds that were joined to form a double bed. I wish there was a single double bed, which definitely scores over two twins joined together.

We spent three nights here in December 2011 with our 2 teenage sons. The staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in 2 of the cottages, which were very spacious,comfortable, well equipped and clean. The grounds were beautiful and very well cared for. The breakfast and evening meals were very good . Excellent location and would recommend it for visiting this area.

We stayed here at the end of November2011 having flown to George in the Western Cape. The hotel is beautifully laid out and the accommodation was very clean and spacious. The cost of the meals is similar to that of the UK, but the wine is cheaper and of excellent quality. Its location makes it ideal for visiting the Western Cape of South Africa.

Spent 3 nights in one of the cottages, which was very well equipped. Large room with open fireplace, which we used as the weather wass chilly. Very large bathroom very well equipped. Excellent breakfast. During evening hours the restauarant was crowded and everything booked already at 5 pm due to large group eating dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for separate cottage

Pretty cottages and grounds but could do with slight refurbishment, also our cottage smelt a little damp. Also bathroom could be alittle cleaner ie flies in lights and pipes around toilet not spotless. That said staff very helpful and food excellent
