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?
So close to the main road, But nice view infront of it.
This hotel was perfect. Beautiful buildings and a stunning outlook over the lagoon. Our suite was fantastic, very spacious with a nice balcony. The bed was comfortable. Breakfasts were great with a good choice of food. The staff were excellent and tried everything to contact us when my husband left his house keys in the room on our departure. Luckily we weren't too far away to come back and get them. The gardens were lovely. It's a short way from Kynsna but taxis are easily available. We loved the hotel and hope to come back again sometime.
Nothing, we were sad to leave.
The hotel is not a 5 star hotel.Poor maintenance indicates poor management. The hotel offers No dining availability. Dining in the town requires taxis to and from. Noisy room with the highway N2 just outside the rooms and pool area.
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.
