10/10 Exceptional

We decided to revisit for our anniversary. Because of Covid it was not very crowded but the level of service was as good as we had previously experienced. Friendly welcome, efficient staff and very comfortable cabins which not even Eskom could diminish. Certainly it will not be our last visit.

Beautiful and relaxing resort
We booked a Deluxe Room Garden View and I'm guessing we must have been upgraded because what we got was a 3 bedroom house! The welcome at reception and then the irrepressible 'Jeffrey' was great, rooms were spotless, beds / linen very comfortable, breakfast spread was good and all in a beautiful garden setting overlooking the lake in a collection of colonial style cottages / houses.

Delightful cottage with view of gardens, pool and Knysna lagoon. Staff so friendly and helpful, especially Jeffrey who has been there since 1985. Wish we could have stayed longer.
