I wanted to spend the weekend in Mosselbay in a cozy and quiet hotel. The Protea Hotel is that kind of hotel. A beautiful view over the harbour, the rooms are very friendly and generous, the staff phantastic and the food very good.
Excellent hotel with large bedrooms and good location on waterfront of Knysna. Staff very helpful and gave good advise on sightseeing in the area. Excellent breakfast. The hotel does not serve dinner but a good selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk. There is a daily charge for parking in the hotels secure car park. If returning to Knysna in future would certainly stay at this hotel.
After having a dreadful flight experience thanks to British Airways, it was lovely to receive such a warm welcome and excellent service. The hotel is of a very high standard but quite small and friendly. The main positive being the staff who couldn't do enough for us.

Welcome to the stylish Harbour House Hermanus Guest House, a 4-star sea-front accommodation in Hermanus, South Africa . This …More
The 'luxury tent' accommodation is exactly that: the bed large and luxurious with four posts and full mosquito nets (not that we noticed any, and nor is it a malarial area), and a great bathroom with large oval bath and double outdoor shower (quite private), complete with touches like candles and room fragrance.
Of course, being separated from the bush by just canvas walls, you will hear the creatures around you making their natural calls, which is most noticeable nocturnally and the incredible dawn chorus - but if you're up for the 6am game drive that won't be a problem! The game drives themselves were wonderful.
The food is good - although the dinner buffet is let down by the side dishes in awful heated containers, whereas the cooked to order meat (including game such as impala, ostrich and crocodile) is great.
An amazing experience, the fact your staying in a "tent" is truly great but it's a tent like no other! The outdoor shower was a great touch. We stayed half board which included choosing 3 courses from their a la carte menu, would definitely recommend you stay half board?
A lovely place to stay in Knysna, exceeded my expectations, has an awesome pool right on the lagoon, the rooms are HUGE with great sized bathrooms, great showers, comfortable bed, friendly staff, breakfast right on the lagoon, I just loved staying here!
