Very quirky hotel with unique interior; I doubt there is anything similar worldwide. Lovely room with great views, but layout with respect to wardrobes hemmed in by bed, could be improved. However, I accept that there has to be some compromise when converting a power station into an hotel!

We stayed here for a short visit to Knysna and will be back in January with friends, superb location, fantastic staff, we had a small room as a last minute booking, however it was still perfect. Location is great next to a range of restaurants

Five stars across the board sums up our visit to Knysna in general and The Turbine in particular. The hotel has been cleverly and beautifully re-incarnated from its former life as a power station which is complemented by the enthusiasm and friendliness of every single member of staff, its stunning location and an assortment of activities in the immediate area. An excellent stopover on any Garden Route itinerary.

Great hotel and very funky! It is positioned on a great location on Thesen island. Its close to most places in Knysna. Its very clean, has a beautiful setting with a good restaurant and bar. You can't go wrong.

This is a fabulous hotel with trendy decor in the expensive development on Thesen island. Have not stayed here but enjoying a lovely cappuccino on the sweet little pool deck overlooking the water. Would definitely stay here over any other hotel I have seen in Kynsna, which from what I've seen so far is rather over-hyped. Beware all the hotels on busy N2 road that runs right through this town.
