Lovely chalets in a beautiful garden

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Pros: We liked the room on our arrival, the garden, the staff, the location & the food - that's about everything!
Cons: Can't think of anything.
We had a lovely time at Tonquani - quirky little wooden chalets set in a beautiful garden. The staff were fantastic & the breakfast was very good. The location was quiet & peaceful but only a few minutes drive to Knysna Quays which was full of restaurants - a very busy & lively place.

The best place to stay in Knsyna

Posted Sep 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed with my family for 3 nights in Tonquani (Family Chalet). The chalet was absolutely comfortable, cozy and charming. I really liked the attention to details that was given to the decor which included African artifacts and Victorian style setting in the chalet. The location is fantastic. It takes less than 5 mins to reach the Knsyna Waterfront. Its located really close to the Friday Market as well. Brendon and his team are really helpful and are doing an absolutely fantastic job! Tonquani is truly a home away from home!

Excellent place to enjoy the beauty of Knysna

What a great find! We traveled with our 9 year old son and as soon as we arrived, the staff really welcomed us and had Christopher playing with the guinea pigs in the garden!The suite we had was fabulous - 2 seperate bedrooms, both ensuite, with a seperate lounge and kitchen and its own mini swimming pool - we couldn't have asked for more.The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional too. Wonderful.

Hotel is a short drive/long walk outside Knysna centre, Rooms are mainly cabins dispersed around the central pool/breakfast/reception area, in a gardened area with guinea pigs and the occasional visiting monkey and large bird. Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. TV is great if you like sport, otherwise limited, but the reception has lots of DVDs for hire. Hotel does breakfast and snacks but not dinners, although I think a menu was available for deliveries from local take-aways. Reception closes at about 8pm although there is an telephone number on the reception door.

The perfect stay.....

Posted Jan 8, 2013
Pros: Privacy of the lodges, breakfasts, private pool, and the description of the one armed baboon in the lodge information book.
We stayed at Tonquani for three nights in early January. A massive thank you to all the staff for the amazing service, great hospitality and making us feel so welcome. The lodges are amazing with all details covered, from candles and robes to BBQ (braai) gear including coal, firefighters. Excellent place to be situated to travel and explore the area and the wonderful places that are so close to the lodge. We managed to squeeze in the Knysna Elephant Park, Bloukrans bungee, Wild Cat Sanctuary, some amazing restaurants, and beautiful viewpoints in the three days and still left feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. We have already booked up for this December to bring out my parents.

Abbiamo scelto questo lodge per una vista a Knysna. Il posto è incantevole ed il nostro lodge era delizioso. Personale gentilissimo. Consigliato.
