“An unexpectedly trendy hotel. Beautiful, unique decor. Charming shops right next to the hotel premises. The location was excellent – short 5 minute walk to Knysna waterfront with loads of dining options and shopping. Safe, below ground parking was a plus.”

We have stayed at this hotel twice and we love it every time. The staff is excellent, the accommodations are very tasteful and comfortable and the breakfast is amazing. I wish there were more Rex Hotels to choose from elsewhere in South Africa!
