Reviews for Simola Hotel
Amazing views! Great service! Fantastic course! Loved every minute!
Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms have underfloor heating for the cold days and the rooms marvelous.
Phenomenal Jack Nicklaus golf course which is a work of art with virtually every hole memorable. Wonderfully conditioned. An absolute favorite!
Nice golf course and friendly people.Breakfast 5 star
Lovely place, great facillity with excellent service. Restuarant food amazing . I enjoyed my stay next time will come with my family because it has a nice place for kids to play and golf course for some catching up conversation with family
No double bedroom suites were available. Individual rooms are quite big. Loved the food and service. Located on a dark road with no street lights. Very helpful reception desk.
Wonderful resort located in the hills above the town of Knysna. Centrally located for quick access to many of the attractions in the area. The resort had fabulous views overlooking the hills and the lagoon. The rooms were very nicely appointed and had a huge patio. We would definitely stay here again in the future.
Room was very spacious and had great view out over hills and the lagoon. Staff were very helpful. Would stay here again when in Knysna.
Lovely suite rooms. Food excellent in restaurant. Staff very helpful and friendly.
This is my favorite course that I have played in the western cape. To summarize it is fun and fair. Each hole is memorable and the entire course is set in a lovely forest type valley. It is friendly to novices yet you do need to be somewhat long off the tee. There are your typical risk and reward holes but you always have the feel that you can do better which is a great feel.
If you are willing to wait 15 minutes for a drink and have a burger with mold on it then this is the place for you. Service is poor.View is great!
Beautiful course and great customer service. Breakfast was great as well.
Heaven on earth. High up in the Mountains with a great view of the golf course and the Knysna water front scenes.
