Golf Getaway
We enjoyed the golf, facilities, views, bird life, clean air and insect sounds. Overall fantastic place to stay. Will definitely return. Areas for improvement- bedroom did not have wifi connection. Need recycling bins and full smart tv options. Twice food for room service was cold.

6/10 Good

We had a pleasant stay at Simola because the staff is friendly and professional. The hotel also provides with many amenities (golf, spa, indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, bar, a few activities) so it's very convenient. The suites are spacious and the views were gorgeous. The breakfast is very good, rich, complete. However, we regret the cleaning wasn't up to the standards of the hotel and renowned golf course. Also the outdoor pool isn't heated though we couldn't enjoy it because it was too chilly, it's a shame for such a big hotel.

This property was amazing, we were there for our honeymoon and the suite had everything — great views of the mountain and water in the distance, a gas grill for a cookout, a fireplace and full kitchen. We loved it.

10/10 Exceptional

Well maintained Golf Resort with large apartment on a B&B basis. Good choice at breakfast in the main dining room. Evening dinner was very good and well priced. The views over the course and right out to Knysna Heads are terrific. Played a round of golf - tricky course but bunker sand was very shallow and hard. We got a very good room rate as the hotel had had a lot of cancellations from Asia due to coronovirus and were doing “specials”.
