Review of Protea Hotel Knysna Quays

Miss Jennifer McKeever & Mr Neal McMahon

The hotel was lovely and the breakfast was delicious. I didn't like this hotel as much as The Clarendon Fresnaye as it was bigger and less intimate. The location was very central but we didn't have a lot to do in Knysna so we were a little bored at times and in hindsight we wished that we had spent two nights in Hermanus and just one in Knysna. No complaints…
