Super accommodation, booking from abroad can sometimes give rise for concern when you arrive in a country but no need when booking at St James. Everything was customer focused with wonderful location by the lagoon and even the hire car was washed, all part of the service.

the hotel, I rated it very good, but when we check out, we stay 3 days short,
the hotel general manager, Ms. Cindy was not happy and she asked me to
talked with booking agent and the agent is no problem about we stay 3 days
short and hotel general manager want us to pay extra for my daughter. I paid. then the hotel covered the 3 days hotel from my child payment. When I book the hotel room, they did not charge for the children under 12 years old,
my daughter is 10 years old.

We had a great stay in a very comfortable and service-minded guesthouse. The upgrated room was of a very large size with all comfort. The pool and the garden are really fantastic, the position directly on the watersite is great. The food-quality in the Restaurant was of a very high Level. The Management and the staff are very friendly and helpfull.

We've read that the lagoon was pretty but this hotel is on such a lovely spot that the beauty still surprises. The room we had was lovely with a nice view of the lagoon. Also the service in bar and restaurant were great. We would certainly go back if we wanted to stay another night in Knysna.

Unexpected little gem of a place to stay. Turn off the highway down a little track and find this beautiful place on the lagoon. Great views, lovely room, excellent dining, and altogether brilliant. Very peaceful spot to unwind.

Luxury on the lagoon. Spacious and luxurious accommodation complimented with fine dining. This is a perfect place to unwind en route to or from Cape Town, or better yet, to put one's feet up for a while longer and enjoy the serenity of the Knysna lagoon.

From the friendly, efficient check-in to similar check out the St James was a pleasure. A fine breakfast with the view towards the Heads over the lagoon and a daily newspaper to browse started the day. Dinner was fine dining, and with a good wine list. A nice range of whiskeys in the well-stocked bar/library. The spacious suite was excellent and well supplied with all the items and accessories for comfort. All round lovely service and attention to detail and needs.
