What better way to enjoy Knysna than a stay on an island, located not only in the heart of the Knysna Lagoon, but also in a Blue Flag Marina in the very centre of Knysna? Set within the remodelled timber frame of the old Knysna boatbuilding shed, the hotel rooms take one's breath away with their industrial refurbishment and design. This fresh, smart-casual approach is far from the ordinary, and caters well to every desire. Multiple room options are presented in various styles: Exclusive Lagoon Suites Luxury Loft Suites Luxury Units with Self-catering Facilities

Cape Town, South Africa
Even before arriving at The Lofts, I was impressed by how customer focussed the hotel staff are - we had booked a stay over New Year 2021 but then postponed that trip when the Knysna beaches were closed under covid lockdown 2, and rescheduled our stay to Easter weekend, only to have to postpone again when my wife's mother fell ill: and we then rearranged our booking to July to coincide with the Knysna Oyster Festival weekend to do the MTB and road cycle races, which were also subsequently cancelled! - and through all of this the hotel staff were only too obliging to accommodate us!! We were too embarrassed to mess the hotel booking staff around again, so we went to Knysna despite the cycle races not being on, just to enjoy a long weekend there - and we are so happy to have done so, as the staff in the hotel were just as welcoming, proficient and attentive in person as their colleagues in the booking office has been by email and telephone!!

The Lofts Boutique Hotel is a must. The architecture is inspiring, the rooms are magnificently appointed, the views of the lagoon leave you with a tranquil trance. I have always had the best rooms, and my comments reflect on those rooms accordingly. This was my second visit, and it will not be my last. Wonderful staff, always discrete and very helpful. To stay here is a refreshing pleasure.

Johannesburg, South Africa
I had the privilege of staying at this establishment overnight and although there for a mere 12 hours, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel itself has a great atmosphere with a unique layout and the tower room I occupied was hugely spacious and comfortable. The view over the Knysna lagoon is especially breathtaking and the service offered by the team was exceptional.

The Lofts is the best spot in Knysna, with beautiful views of the lagoon, next to the best restaurant, Ile de Pain, and walking distance to other nice restaurants. The room was clean, neat, luxurious and comfortable. Friendly staff and it’s good value for money. We’ll stay there again!
