This 4 star hotel embodies an "indigenous" concept that combines the character and the spirit of the surrounding indigenous forests with Knysna's romantic history.
On entering the lobby of one of the largest log structures in the Southern Hemisphere, exquisitely carved solid Yellowwood trunks tower upwards to the magnificent Scandinavian hammer trusses. Rays of sunshine flooding through the spectacular stained glass windows, illuminate the splendid solid Yellowwood staircase. The autumn hues of the slate flooring and the extensive use of natural river stone combine with the wood to create an atmosphere of tranquil balance. 57 magnificently decorated en suite luxury bedrooms invite you to unwind in comfort and style. This includes air conditioning and satellite TV. Other facilities for guests include a heated swimming pool, a gazebo and sauna. There is also an on site shopping complex.
