We arrived a bit late, slightly dishevelled but were greeted by the friendliest evening manager who provided us with a glass of port and brandy before showing us to our room. Along the way to our room he noted we were on honeymoon and he pulled out all the stops.
The hotel is an old power station with various parts of its past on show and integrated as features where possible.
Bedroom was a good size with a bathroom as impressive(double sinks, shower cubicle and separate bath). Private balcony overlooking the pool and Thesen Island private homes and harbours.
Breakfast was excellent. Staff were very kind and attentive.We ate in local restaurants all of which were excellent too.
I'd definitely return, great value for money too.
PS. thanks for sending on my shirt to my next hotel.
Stayed a night at this stunning hotel last week and cannot fault it. Awesome concept of building the hotel around the turbines of a disused power station; the industrial heritage of the building was nicely reflected in many different ways right down to the metal napkin holders. The room was great and it was so nice to relax in a large, fluffy, white bathrobe! Dinner was excellent - great quality and good portions, and very reasonably priced ...a nice surprise considering it's a 5-star hotel. All in all, an awesome place to stay in Knysna.
A wonderful Christmas menu, elegant food and such a beautiful setting! I was so thrilled at the beautiful presentation and the stunning flavours

Top recommendation for breakfast in the area! The staff are exceptionally well trained and the food never disappoints in the breakfast department. The ambiance is nice and relaxed and ideal for anyone in need of a quiet good quality cappuccino in the morning.
