We stayed here for a one night stay during our family vacation driving the Garden Route. We were greeted by a lovely manager on the night we got in, who couldn't do more to help with us settling in for the night.
As we were a family of four (6 & 8 year olds) we required two rooms and were delighted with the decor and standard of the rooms that were next to each other. The Lofts is an old boatshed that has been transformed into small business down the bottom level and hotel rooms above them. The beds were incredible to sleep in and the furnishings of an exceptional but very comfortable standard.
We were given a lot of information about Knysna and where to eat, what to do, sightseeing ideas that we easily could of stayed for another day. They don't supply breakfast but give you vouchers for breakfast and you can choose between two cafe's, one walking distance and the other at the waterfront (about a 5 minute drive). Both were fantastic and great value as we never used up the whole of amount of the voucher, even having everything we wanted for breakfast.
There is a large shopping area adjacent to the hotel, but as we spent the days sightseeing we never ventured into it, however ate at a gorgeous italian restaurant on the water which was walking distance from the hotel.
We were planning on staying in Plettersberg the next night (as that was our destination for the next day), however after viewing some of the hotels to stay and the prices, we decided to head back to the Lofts for another night's stay because of the quality and value for money.
We would gladly recommend this hotel for families/couples as a stop along the Garden Route.
