“Loved the location and interiors”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We had been to Knysna on our Garden Route trip in April 2014. And we were booked at The Graywood by our travel agent for 2 nights. The hotel is located at a walkable distance from the knysna quays which harbours some shopping areas and good restaurants. The wooden interiors are fabulous & staff are pleasant . The rooms are neat and clean. In bathroom the shower head needs to be changed as it’s become old. This hotel has got a clean, small & cute pool. Breakfast is good but has limited options when compared with other hotels at this price range. The hotel is situated near good restaurants such as Anchorage & Rasoi located at walkable distances.

I wasn't keen on the outside of this hotel- but after driving into Knysna late afternoon we decided to check it out. What a lovely surprise ! The outside doesn't do it justice- it wont disappoint. The mature plants surround a small but adequate pool which give the upper wooden floor a charming outlook. The cabosse theme and train artefacts gave Graywood an added extra.
The room was a decent size with a good shower ensuite. Breakfast was good with a quick and pleasant service. Very quick walk to the port side shops and restaurants in stunning Knysna.

03/4 Garywood
Our stay at the Garywood was very good. The rooms are very adequate if you want to have 3 or 4 person on the Sofa bed.
The breakfast is very good.
The hotel is within walking distant of the water front

Good hotel with nice breakfasts a bit of a walk to the waterfront with its amenities. Room 42 backs on to a tourist coach park which can be noisy first thing in the morning with coaches revving up getting ready to leave. Otherwise an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: room 42 backs onto tourist coach park which can be noisy first thing in the morning.

Graywood isn't your regular looking hotel, though it looks quite similar to the property opposite. However, our stay for 2 days at this property was quite good barring the food. The interiors are artistically done, rooms are quite spacious and new and the distance to the waterfront and the market is minimal. The only issue is the the availability of food, which typically has to be ordered from a nearby restaurant and it isn't too great. The breakfast served in the hotel is quite ok. However, the staff if friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 3 days on our Garden Route experience.Our rooms were lovely,nice interior,very spacious and absolutely spotless with a bath and shower over it.Our rooms were on the main floor,i think the wooden interior ones are on the ground floor.
The breakfast is lovely,fruit,meats,cheeses,cereal and you order your eggs how you want,we had lovely omelettes.
there is a swimming pool at the hotel with complimentary beds and towels,we never used the pool but did spend a couple of hours relaxing by it.
The staff are lovely,very helpful and cheerful.
The only niggle we had was the hotel bar closes at 10pm,but you can get a couple of drinks before then if you fancy having a drink on the balcony before bed.
The hotel is in a great location,a straight 5 minute walk to the Marina
.In a previous review I mentioned 'The Anchorage' restaurant,this is a few doors down from the hotel and is a MUST visit,excellent.
Enjoy your stay,i know we will be back :-)

Room Tip: we had rooms 30 and 31.they are at the end away from the breakfast area and bar
