Morne wrote a review 5 May

My wife and I visited Simola mid week at the end of April on the 2 night package that includes a round of golf (incl halfway house) and stayed in a Luxury Villa. As you arrive the views are amazing and the reception staff makes you feel very welcome. When walking into our Villa, again the views over Knysna lagoon takes your breath away. The only downside I had was that the overhead fan cover over the outside gas braai was so dirty that once I turned on the heat, the old fat started dripping from the cover, and I had to clean it before I could braai. There was also no gas bottle connected to the gasbraai, but that was sorted out immediately after I phoned reception. But other than that I have nothing negative to say about our experience. The rooms are beautiful and nice beds. The breakfast is great with a wide variety. The golf course is still one of my favorite courses in South Africa, and in great condition. One suggestion would be to have Nespresso machines in the rooms, as I don't think instant coffee sachets fits with the rest of the wonderful and luxurious experience. Thank you Simola for a lovely 2 days, and hopefully we will see you again soon.

The hotel was fantastic. Apart from not having a proper diner menu (they used to bar lounge menu which was used in the bar during lunchtime) the stay was amazing. I think for a 5 star resort a proper evening menu should be prepared
