No restaurant but no need for one with a variety of fabulous restaurants in Knysna Quays 2 minutes through back gate. Fabulous setting - make sure you have a lagoon view!! Nice pool and sun loungers. We stayed for a week but most guests seemed to be in and out quickly as on Garden route tours.

Weather-wise, the Western Cape is blessed with hot, sunny summers, and even in winter extreme temperatures are rare. When the sun is shining and the temperature gauge is climbing, there is nothing quite like plunging into a pool for a refreshing swim.
Thankfully, finding a hotel with a pool in the Western Cape isn’t difficult. There are hundreds of options to choose from. Treat yourself to a swanky five-star lodge with a whopping 15 pools, or opt for a family-friendly country house with its own outdoor pool. Even cheap budget accommodations such as backpacker hostels and low-cost lodges are often equipped with.
If you are coming to the region in winter, you may want to look for a Western Cape accommodation with an indoor pool so you can enjoy a swim without falling prey to rain showers or chilly winds.
When you’ve had enough of splashing in the hotel pool, pack your swimsuit and venture outside to spend a day on one of the fabulous Western Cape beaches. The Blue-Flag certified Fourth Beach at Clifton is one of the cleanest and safest swimming spots. Muizenberg Beach, which faces onto the sheltered False Bay, is equally pleasant and often has slightly warmer water. For more action-packed beach fun, head to the windier stretches of Bloubergstrand or Langebaan. Conditions here are just right for wind-powered water sports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing.
Other good spots for a soak in the Western Cape include hot spring resorts. Bathe in soothing warm pools filled with mineral-rich water and enjoy the stunning natural scenery that surrounds you. Should you need more relaxation, head for a spa where a skilled masseuse will banish any residual stress. If your Western Cape hotel has a pool, it may well have spa facilities on site too. Some spa facilities even offer treatments that incorporate traditional African massage techniques as well as products featuring local herbs and ingredients.
