The Turbine Boutique Hotel & Spa was an ambitious project, which transformed an old power station into a unique 5-star boutique hotel. All the old machinery, which was used in this power station, has been lovingly restored and forms an integral part of the hotel’s aesthetics. We offer guests a choice of seventeen standard rooms, six luxury rooms, a honeymoon suite and an optional self-catering Lagoon Suite. Each of the rooms provides luxurious amenities such as a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, a fully stocked mini bar, and a tea and coffee station.
The 90-seater Island Café restaurant overlooks the stunning canal and serves up extraordinary dishes from a diverse a la carte menu. The Gastro Pub and Deck, on the other hand, allows guests to enjoy watching the sun go down, whilst sipping on something from the extensive drinks menu and filling up on an imaginative pub-style variety of snacks. Also featured on-site is the Col’Cacchio Pizzeria, which produces mouth-watering Italian cuisine.
Our unusual hotel makes an excellent conference venue with its 5-star facilities but refreshingly different atmosphere. There are two conference rooms - the Boiler Room and the Yellowwood Room, which can each host 20 delegates around tables, or up to 40 if seats are set out cinema style. The Boiler Room is built inside the old wood-fire burner boiler and boasts one of the most unique business settings Knysna has to offer. The rooms are inter-leading for larger functions, and are air-conditioned with free Wi-Fi and full audio-visual facilities available.
We're a fabulous wedding venue where the sparks are sure to fly in this former power station. Sexy industrial chic, a couple’s massage in the Amani Spa and a night in the honeymoon suite will also get the energy flowing. Vows can be exchanged in the courtyard or the Island Café, with a magnificent backdrop of Knysna Lagoon. The reception in the Island Café can spill out onto the lawn and pool deck with the venue arranged according to your needs. Our executive chef will be delighted to prepare a menu to cater for your taste.
