“Worth staying a night”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

We stayed here as part of our trip through the garden route was a nice hotel with an excellent location. The only real fault i could personally find was the price but then again i felt very safe and had two great nights sleep here so what more could you want. The surrounding areas where very safe too we walked to a restaurant at night time and at no point did we feel that we needed to be extra cautious

Overall good acommodate freindly helpfull staff and nice location

we were very sorry that we stayed just one night (we were in our way to the ShamWari Game Reserve) and didnt have enough time to appreciate all that this wonderful hotel has to offer! The room was fantastic and unique! Staff very carefull and made everything to make our stay the most pleasable possible! The city is small, cute and with charming restaurants. We hope to come back again soon!

We loved our stay at the lofts with my husband, four year old son and my mother. We choose a 2 bedroom suite which as very comfortable and stylish with plenty of space for the young man. The rooms are very clean and the suite has facilities should you choose to self cater which is always a useful option when traveling with young children. The location on Thesen Islands was interesting and the variety of breakfast venues was a plus. The reception assistance was most helpful with their suggestion. Thank you Karen and Rhoda. A beautiful beautiful unusual place. We loved it and my mother who can be hard to please cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: 2 bed suite for families offers good space

Don't miss this one, it is fab! Fantastic views across the lagoon from outstanding rooms. Large comfortable beds, great amenities, very friendly and helpful staff. We had what amounted to a duplex apartment with the children up a ladder to a second "loft" room, they loved it! We will be back!

Myself and my wife stayed at The Lofts twice during March and it did not dissapoint. The Hotel does exactly what it says, its a small botique hotel and it has that feeling. Staff was friendly, rooms were always clean, and in the morning they provide you with a breakfast voucher to eat at a resturant of you choice in the area, which I think is a nice touch. Depending on your room you have great views over Knysna lagoon and the setting appears extremely tranquil. Greaat choice based on service and price.

This was our second visit and we stayed 16 nights. It's quiet, peaceful and comfortable. Location is good, away from the bustle of Knysna town but lots of choice for eating on the island or just across the causeway. Above all the management and staff can't do enough for you. We plan to return next year.

We had a huge loft suite (1a) - by far a better room than others. Great views over the lagoon and the sun deck is on the water. Spacious well appointed loft, modern and fresh. Open plan bathroom. Great recption from super helpful host. Honesty bar in nice spot. Pool a sun trap and relaxing if perhaps a little small. Free kayak and bicycles were great for sunset paddle or cycle around the Island. Spacious place in brilliant location. Walking distance to good restaurants, but a short drive to brilliant places. Il de Pain just perfect for breakfast or brunch. Undercover car parking. Just a lovely feel to this place.
