    Superb in all ways - a must stay!

    Knysna Hollow Park is a beautiful location. The level of quality of the rooms and service were second to none - the most beautiful accommodation we have stayed at during our South African holiday. Gardens were an absolute treat also.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This Hotel was recently re-built and radically redesigned. The Room that I stayed in was finished to a particularly high standard and was spotlessly clean. It was quiet and very comfortable. The management have paid fantastic attention to detail, if one needs to use the Bathroom during the night then a light automatically comes on to guide you to the loo! Upon arrival I was greeted in the car park by a member of staff who immediately took my baggage and guided me to Reception, where the check in process was friendly fast and efficient. Dinner was very good (I had a Steak Sandwich with a twist) service again was very good. I do however have one small gripe, I ordered the full breakfast and unfortunately the Sausage was not cooked properly and was pink and raw inside, mistakes happen, and I was offered a replacement breakfast without any problems or back chat. This Hotel is well worth a visit and I was very impressed.

    An exceptional hotel

    Brand new rooms, well located, rooms set in individual "houses" in beautiful gardens. Two swimming pools. All staff are welcoming, friendly and efficient. The largest selection of sattelite channels of any hotel I've been too. Fantastic breakfast. On site restaurant "Social" has a wide and varied menu which does not disappoint in taste. All this and very reasonable prices for a property of this exceptional nature.

    Super Nice Place

    Lovely place with super friendly staff. Beautiful hotel within tranquil surroundings. Rooms are neat as a pin and so were the " still new" gardens. Good breakfast and great dinner and lunch menus.
