We spend two nights here on our way down the Garden Route and regretted we could know have stayed for longer. The hospitality was excellent!
The Lodge is a little bit out of town but it is situated in a most beautiful location and the room we had overlooked the lagoon. The room was very spacious and there was a jet bath to let all the stress wash away. There was a real feel of being in a 'game lodge' but close to the sea! There was a pool but being 'winter' we didn't use it but it is set in a perfect spot overlooking everything.
The breakfast was amazing and to be highly recommended. Just make sure you are hungry as they provide a very good menu to select from.
It was one of the more expensive places we stayed on route but still it was good value for money for all that we experienced.
They also recommended an excellent restaurant in town called the Olive Tree - so if you stay in Knysna I would definitely head for there for what we found to be a top class meal!
