In the heart of small-town bliss

A stone’s throw from the Knysna Waterfront in one direction and its main road in the other, The Rex Hotel is perfectly situated on Grey Street – a thoroughfare lined with cafes, boutiques and hair salons. Blending modern and classic comforts and with all amenities needed to feel right at home, guests will adore this quiet haven tucked away in a conveniently-situated part of this seaside town.

Found along the picturesque Garden Route, resting on the banks of an estuary and hugged by extensive Afromontane forest, Knysna is a hotspot for water-sport enthusiasts, beach bums, and those in search of the quaint and gently bustling charm of a small town. Plettenberg Bay, Sedgefield and Wilderness are all within easy driving distance, making Knysna a superb base while exploring the Garden Route. 

Reflecting an urban chic ambiance, The Rex Hotel’s standard rooms mix contemporary and classic décor with cool colours and rich fabrics. Every modern comfort is available, from the well-equipped kitchenette to the small touches that are aimed at making your stay as relaxing as possible. Relish mouth-watering breakfasts at The O Bar & Eatery on site, offering delicious creations throughout the day.
