Staff great, room superb, good breakfast and great view of lagoon from balcony
WiFi unstable, they are renovating so some noise from this, also apart from breakfast restaurant doesn’t function
They were renovating at the time so the restaurant and lounge was a little makeshift. The location is beautiful but a little further out of town than I had realised.
The view of the lagoon and the visible Knysna Heads.
The picnic basket was over priced (R525), considering that the boat cruise was said to be complimentary. It's more like we were paying for the boat cruise and getting the basket as part of the cruise.
Facilities are poor. Management is unresponsive. It took almost 20 hours to address basic problems such as no TV. Other problems (e.g. poor plumbing) are long-term and structural. Most of all management is disinterested.
Spacious well equipped rooms. Super comfortable beds. Truly lovely staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Eggs benedict for breakfast was the best in a long while. Spectacular peaceful location.
WiFi in the room very shaky. But why would you come to a hotel like this if you need the distraction of WiFi?
With a stay at St James of Knysna in Knysna, you'll be on a lake, just steps from Knysna Lagoon and a 3-minute drive from Knysna Quays. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
