The location of the hotel is strategic because it on a mountain facing the sea. The views throughout the day stimulate your mind. During sunset you see the place in a different light. It is an environment for the matured individuals because of its tranquility.

Taryn was the perfect host after I stayed at Mount Knysna for a medical procedure. She went beyond the call of duty to make my stay comfortable, even taking me to the hospital and delivering flowers to my doctor after my departure. There is nowhere better to stay if you need this level of specialized care, customized meals and services in beautiful surroundings with stunning views of the Heads from your convalescent bed. The whole team also made it easy for my friend to work from the facility by providing him with a work space where he could do all of his online lectures and meetings in a quiet, professional and comfortable environment. Thank you Taryn, didn’t think anything could be better than the views but you proved me wrong!

We had a very memorable stay, facilities are five star. The service was out of this world, everyone went out of their way to make us feel at home. The views are spectacular. Food was delicious and breakfast fit for a king.
