  Distant Journeys rating

The Rex Hotel is one of Knysna’s most elegant hotels, offering great service and comfort. The hotel is situated just a short stroll from Knysna’s bustling waterfront with a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Distant Journeys guests will stay in the newly built wing of the hotel in comfortable modern rooms, with access to the hotel swimming pool.


The Rose Cafe is sophisticated yet relaxed, and specialises in delicious fusion food, taking its inspiration from South Africa’s varied multi-cultural heritage.  All food is fresh and seasonal, and there is something for everyone ranging from a light snack to a three course gastronomic feast.  Guests can choose to dine on the outside terrace to soak up the Knysna sun.
