This lodge is located in the perfect place, and you can see the mountains lagoon and the sea . Appel was very friendly and helpful. The place was clean and tidy. We really enjoyed the swimming pool. It was always clean.

Easy to find, (although sat nav was incorrect. Take turning at traffic lights), Undercover parking was available, and our rooms had a great view as we were located upstairs. We essentially only used it for showering and sleeping as we spent days out exploring and sight seeing. However, it would have been great to find some tea and coffee and...

It is a bit of an odd spot - pretty noisy, and with a strange entrance way past the laundry and Frik's wooden wendy house - but in reality the units are well appointed, the pool was delicoius on a blazing hot day and they allowed us to have a dog !!!

An absolute must stay at Salt River Lodge, Knysna. The apartment was very beautiful and well equiped and had that special homely feeling. Spectacular view from Lagoon Lodge, owned by the same owner. Very friendly hosts and great food. They cater for all your needs and are situated near all Knysna attractions. Will definitely return.

Well situated on Old Cape Road. just outside of town, it is close to all amenities and all other things that Knysna has to offer, except luxury. It is very well set up, and has great potential, but it is foind wanting. We found that the unit (ours was Unit 1) smelled really bad, like a cat had just peed...

We stayed in Unit 1 (of 4) and found the following "issues": 1) The main bedroom had a very bad odour in it when we got there. Couldn't figure out what caused it or get rid of it after spring cleaning the room. 2) Unit is tiled, but the loose carpets are in bad shape - very dusty and smelly....
