"We were in Turbine Hotel during 2 days of our Honeymoon. The hotel has a nice situation in Thesen Islands (Knysna), close to sea, shops and restaurant. The structure is original. We booked a suite and specified that we were on honeymoon. We got a room which was called a suite with view on the swimming pool but it looked so small... Furthermore, the restaurant is nice with good food. For breakfast, there is no buffet, you have to order one meal within 6 or 7. The Spa is a little bit expensive. We spent a nice we but we do not consider this hotel as a 5* but more a 4*."

"I travelled with my elderly mom. We enjoyed almost 99% of what this hotel can offer. The base was perfect for exploring the town of Knysna. The reception staff were polite & helpful- Clarence & Sandswa in particular! Breakfast was adequate & varied. However I do have to point out that if you are NON WHITE the breakfast staff will not pay you much attention. Be prepared to fight for attention over coffee choices or any sort of help. I didn’t even know you can order a variety of coffee options or your eggs cooked to your preference until it was offered to my ‘white’ diners next to me & hence not me. My brown skin is not worthy perhaps?Unfortunately in a small South African town like Knysna, white skin still trumps. Ps. Natasha the accountant must learn to drink her coffee at her desk instead of the breakfast nook reception. It is very disconcerting to see an employee languidly drinking her coffee & unwilling to help you. Surely Rex provides proper desks for coffee consumption to their admin staff? "

"We really enjoyed our stay here, everything about this hotel was perfect for an enjoyable stay in Knysna. The location is excellent, right down on the waterfront and just a few steps from shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast offered a great choice and variety of food. Staff were polite and efficient. The bedroom was very comfortable, with 2 double beds. Most of all, we want people to know about our story of employee honesty. When we arrived back home to Ireland, we discovered that our Kindle book reader was missing, so we tried to retrace our steps through the various accommodations where we had stayed on the Garden Route. After receiving 'not found' messages from all, including Protea Knysna, we were thrilled and delighted to receive a call from Candice in Protea to say they had found it. we made arrangements for it's safe return and Protea could not have been more helpful. Thank you for your great honesty!!"

"We loved this hotel. Pure luxury and comfort. The only thing is the suite says it has a kitchenette but it's not what I would call a kitchenette. It is just a sink and a kettle/coffee machine. No microwave or toaster or anything like that - so it's not really a kitchenette in my opinion. The restaurants could do with more (and much better) vegetarian options. Otherwise pure comfort and luxury in a beautiful location. Would definitely stay here again."

"I loved this place. It's in a modest part of town vs. the swanky tourist area, but the hotel and room were spotless and the service was extremely friendly and attentive. The included breakfast was delicious. Best value for the money of any hotel I can remember staying in."

More about Knysna

The city of Knysna is one of the gems found along South Africa’s Garden Route. This beautiful piece of land draws travelers with its stunning landscapes and lush forests. Its location in the middle of the Garden Route means accessing other delights found along the Garden Route will be rather simple and rewarding. There is no airport within the immediate area, but at the gateway to the Garden Route is George Airport with connecting flights from Cape Town International Airport.

Arts and crafts are a thing here, with much inspiration coming from the natural settings. Knysna Fine Art is one of the country’s finest galleries and showcases local and international artists. Adventurous activities are very popular and include rock climbing, abseiling, and simple hikes. The Knysna Elephant Park cares for orphaned elephants and allows an up-close-and-personal encounter with the majestic beasts. There is also a number of golf courses providing a tee-off that will surely surpass most other experiences on the green. When looking for retail therapy, shops can be found along Main Street and the waterfront.
