    Spektakulär utsikt!

    Ett ställe med ett spektakulärt läge och fantastisk utsikt. Något överdekorerat, för min smak. Fantastisk frukost och service på morgonen. Rummet vi fick var lite fuktlukt i men det kanske inte gäller alla rum.

    Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt im Hotel und haben die Aussicht und das tolle Ambiente sehr genossen. Das Frühstück war auch ausgezeichnet. Kann ich absolut empfehlen, war wirklich ein nettes Hotel. Das einzige was man verbessern könnte ist vl die Information über Aktivitäten in der Nähe vom Knysna.
