    Fabulous

    The Lofts is well located at the waterfront. There's a friendly staff and an honesty bar.

    Our suite, directly on the water has an open plan bathroom with two sinks that are too low and not suitable for grown up people. The 2 little mirrors are just to small to look into and to shave..besides very bad positioned.The wifi system did not work when we arrived and it stayed that way..

    Very good

    I just liked the location and the helpful receptionist.

    I did not like that no staff is present at the hotel premises from 7 in the evening to 7 in the morning. May be you require some help. If you order food from somewhere you have to constantly be in touch with the delivery man. As you have to go down open the door for him and get your food up. There are no restaurants at the hotel. But there is a menu card for you. Where you can order food from other restaurants.

    The lagoon suites are fantastic with excellent views of Knysna Lagoon. Quiet and peaceful. The hotel a very well maintianed. My second stay there.

    Breakfast is served at nearby cafes with a voucher, but some of them are tought to find. Would be better if breakfast was served onsite.

    Good location

    Booked and paid for a two-bedroom suite, but was informed on arrival that they only have a one bedroom suite. No lagoon view from balcony. No air conditioning in bedroom. A suggestion is to supply mosquito repellents please

    We had a great stay at the Lofts Boutique hotel. Thesen island is a very beautiful place and Knysna is a good "hub" for lots of things to do around the area. The island is very sleepy and it may take a little while to get used to the slow pace, but overall a very nice hotel in a very nice location.

    The breakfast vouchers is a very good idea. Open kitchen use was fantastic. Coffee machine is a treat although paying for it is a wonderful self service - service provided.

    Checking out was a problem. Contacting the lady explaining our situation - she was irritated with us when discussing it over the phone with her. Call was not returned the first time. Guests leaving the side door open when coming back late is also unsafe. May a self lock door will be better option.

    Beautiful location, fantastic service, design of the rooms is state of the art, excellent staff - they really understand how to provide a memorable experience - we loved that we were able to use the hotel canoe on the Knysna lagune in the early morning. Great breakfast arrangement with Isle de Pain.

    I loved everything and will definitely book this for a longer period next year.
