I wanted to spend the weekend in Mosselbay in a cozy and quiet hotel. The Protea Hotel is that kind of hotel. A beautiful view over the harbour, the rooms are very friendly and generous, the staff phantastic and the food very good.
Excellent hotel with large bedrooms and good location on waterfront of Knysna. Staff very helpful and gave good advise on sightseeing in the area. Excellent breakfast. The hotel does not serve dinner but a good selection of restaurants within a few minutes walk. There is a daily charge for parking in the hotels secure car park. If returning to Knysna in future would certainly stay at this hotel.
A beautiful place to stay. Only sorry we didn't have more time to stay longer. Restaurant was lovely. My son loved the ostrich sausages for breakfast...said they were the best sausage he had tasted in SA.
We were a little apprehensive as to which game reserve to choose during our recent stay in South Africa but, after having read some other reviews, we decided on Botlierskop and we were so glad that we did. The attention to detail was second to none and we loved the activities that we chose to do. We weren't even put off by the rain we had when out on our game drive; it was all still very exciting. Our guide, Corlia, was knowledgeable and informative and knew just where to go to find the animals we wanted to see. And, as for walking with cats - it was a wonderful experience. I won't give too much detail as I wouldn't want to spoil it for other people who choose this activity! Although we only stayed in the resort for less than 24 hours, we were able to pack so much in and felt as if we had stayed for a week. As for our 'tent'; definitely glamorous camping as its best!
Very nice hotel and people very friendly. Balcony room overlooking ocean and many tidal pools. Good food and withing walking distance to another restaurant. Light house next door, good hike. Tours could be taken from hotel. Very pleased with the area and hotel.
