I have stayed at the Lofts several times and plan to do so many more times in the future. It is an experience you could never have in America or Europe. Not to be missed. Great location on the water with perfect breezes. Good anytime of the year. Thesen Harbour Town has several great seafood restaurants (and several breakfast cafes) and downtown Knysna is just a few minutes walk away. Staying on Thesen Island is a tranquil experience. Calm, clean, well organized. The headquarters of Garden Route National Park is just a few steps away where you can learn about the Knysna Seahorse and the revitalization of the lagoon. The Lofts itself is certainly a unique hotel experience. The design of the building and the rooms is like nothing you have ever seen. The hotel was designed inside the original Thesen boat building workshop. You can still see evidence of this in the rails extending into the water and the timbers overhead. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The suites have great kitchenettes and plenty of room for a family to spread out. The staff of the Lofts is always courteous and helpful. You can tell they take great pride in their work. If you are looking for something different and VERY comfortable... head to the Lofts in Knysna. You will not be sorry!
