This property was amazing, we were there for our honeymoon and the suite had everything — great views of the mountain and water in the distance, a gas grill for a cookout, a fireplace and full kitchen. We loved it.

Well maintained Golf Resort with large apartment on a B&B basis. Good choice at breakfast in the main dining room. Evening dinner was very good and well priced. The views over the course and right out to Knysna Heads are terrific. Played a round of golf - tricky course but bunker sand was very shallow and hard. We got a very good room rate as the hotel had had a lot of cancellations from Asia due to coronovirus and were doing “specials”.
