A beautiful hotel in a lovely setting.
This property is more like an upscale bed and breakfast than a hotel. Each room is different and they all were spacious and beautiful. The hotel is located on Knysna lagoon and is surrounded by a lovely garden. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. You really need a car to stay at this property because it is a bit out of town and it would be difficult to walk anywhere. Otherwise it was easy to find because the sign was on the N2 and was prominent. This was one of my husband's favorite hotels during our two weeks in South Africa.

Fantastic. Unbelievable room - Took the Junior Suite and it is by far the largest room I have stayed in (and I have traveled to over 50 countries.) Food is fantastic too. Great location near to Knysna Heads and all the surrounding beauty.

St. James Hotel
We stayed five days at this wonderful hotel. The location is just gorgeous. Very friendly staff and you feel very welcome. We also enjoyed the restaurant. Highly recommend St. James and we hope to be back there again soon.
