    Everything, best hotel I have stayed in. The whole staff was wonderful and thought of everything. They were so welcoming and helpful, more proactive that we were having a great stay than I have ever experienced before. The setting was absolutely gorgeous. I can't recommend Augusta Bay highly enough, best stay I have ever had.

    Fantastic views of the 'Heads' region of Knysna.

    Dirty water came from the hot water taps in the bathroom. No apologies were made when this information was passed to management - rather, they agreed that the water was 'disgusting' and like 'sludge' and had been like that for some time! Overcharged for drinks in minibar. Finally, given two recommendations for local restaurants, both of which were shut when we arrived there.

    The rates were fabulous! Lea was the best hostess. She is very knowledgable, capable and even knows how to cure travelers' stomach woes with old South African remedies. We truly enjoyed our stay.

    Satellite tv did not receive many channels.

    This was our second stay and just a good as the first.The staff are extremely welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and of a very high standard, all the little extras have been thought of. Breakfast was a lovely spread. The locations is wonderful, right on the Knysna Heads. Would love another visit with more time.

    Monica and her sister were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of there way to assist. The rooms were stunning, very clean and comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend.

    I loved the Pebble Beach Room. It was the best room I have ever stayed in. It was very clean. Excellent Stay!!

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly staff, very nice location, nice neighborhood, secure feeling

    All of the doors had antiquated locks requiring the old type skeliton keys that you had to use to unlock from the outside and relock from the inside. You have to unlock 3 seperate doors to get in after 7 PM.

  • Older travelers

    Helpful staff. Internet included in the price. Lovely room and views. Recommendation for places to eat and places to visit was useful. Complimentary sherry and biscuits in the room was a nice touch. Breakfast very good.

    The hotel arranged for us to visit a restaurant by minibus provided free of charge by the restaurant. We were rather concerned that the seatbelts did not work in the minibus and we were sitting in the front. It might be worth the hotel querying the safety issue and advising foreign visitors who are unfamiliar with using minibuses that they may be rather basic and not to worry about being picked up in an anonymous bus as opposed to a clearly identifiable taxi.

    We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is brilliantly located and the staff were even better. Very pretty rooms. Highly recommend

  • Single
    10.0

    Hospitaly,dedication and friendlyness are outstanding. Good information about sight seeing opportunities in the area. Very service oriented.Highly recommendable for short or longer stay..

    No complaints. But a restaurant for dinners would add value,although nearby (walking distance) there a few nice lunch or dining opportunities.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Fantastic. Everything was great about this place. Wished we had stayed longer. Leah the manageress was an absolute star. Every business needs a Leah. Went beyond the call of duty to look after us & the guests. If you want an ideal location for a quiet retreat literally on the seafront this has to be the place. Cant say Enough.

    Becoming a little dated especially compared to the property next to it but does not really need a mention & does not take anything away from the experience.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Personal service from the manager (both Monica and Henlia) was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble.
