The concept is wonderful in that they converted an old Boat Shed into a 'Hotel' and shops. Decor was lovely and the bed comfortable, however we had one of the Lofts rooms and they all overlook a parking lot with a small glimpse of the water. To our surprise the Hotel does not have a restaurant attached to it, however they cleverly partnered up with several restaurants on Thesen Island as well as in Knysna town offering guests a change of dining options. This is something which we both truly enjoyed as we were able to taste several restaurants! The staff were friendly and assisted when asked.
Area of improvement though : the walls dividing the rooms are super thin! We were able to hear our neighbors throughout the night and I assume so could they - whether they were in bed or on the toilet! There are certain things one would not like to hear! For a 4* hotel I find that unacceptable and hope that the management will sort this issue out soonest.
