The room is spacious but the setting is average. The TV is old and only a few English channels available. The bathroom is quite dated. There is a pool just outside of our villas but I didn't see anyone usingit. The restaurant serves fine food in a very classy and warm surroundings. The food is yummy and the price is right. We enjoyed our two nights there because of the restaurant. As said, the room can be improved.

Stayed here as part of a Riviera Tour for 2 nights. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was similar to other Hollow Hotel we stayed at in Hazy View. It was rustic cane furniture but very clean and comfortable. The meals and breakfast we had were excellent. They have a strange numbering system for the rooms and our room number 9 was next to number 32

We were booked into this property by our travel agent and since we were travelling by hire car we did not mind that it was well outside Knysna township. It looked to be a nicely kept establishment, with pleasant internal views, however it did not match up to the description provided by our agent. Points in favour were the lovely staff in the restaurant, the shop, laundry service, the staff on the hospitality desk and the fact that they allowed us to upload photos on the computer there. Disappointments were the facilities in the room (lighting, phone to reception, proper compendium of services), the loud noise made by workers and guests on the gravel pathways early in the mornings but worst of all the terrible and totally unexpected noise of traffic roaring along to a nearby school also in the mornings, which shocked us awake on the first morning and was frustratingly familiar from then on.

Room Tip: Ask if it backs on to the road behind the estate running to the school and don't accept it if it does.

Thank you very much for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay with us at Knysna Hollow - we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the service from our staff and are obviously disappointed about the disturbances you experienced from guests, staff and traffic noise during your stay. We do our best to try and minimise the impact of noise on the property caused by some guests leaving earlier than others and unfortunately have no control over the movements of traffic around our hotel at certain times of the day. We trust this did not impact on your stay too much. With kind regards from Clive and the Knysna Hollow Team.

Absolutely gorgeous, only booked in for one night as stop there along our trip down garden route. Wish we had booked in for a week. Accommodation set around swimming pools, we were going to do some sight seeing in knysna, but could not leave. Enjoyed the day by the pool instead, enjoyed a relaxing day by poolside, (even had lunch brought to you.), while kids swam and had fun. Absolute bliss. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on our tour of South Africa with THompson's Africa. We stayed in Lodge 10 in a lovely large bedroom and bathroom. The lodge was well maintained with nice furnishings. Breakfasts and dinners were very good, though no sugar free preserves available. There was a limited hospitality tray. The lodges were cold, but an open fire with logs to burn is provided. The bar area is good to sit and chat in, but drinks are on the expensive side for South Africa.
