Very nice guesthouse with lovely rooms and charming owners. The house was very clean and well maintained. We had a beautiful time and we enjoyed the amazing view across the river. We will definitely stay there again one time in future and also recommend it to our friends.

Second year we have stayed at the Anchorage, 3 nights this time, great room set in a lovely location on the river. Huge sandy beach just around the estuary entrance. Best pool we went in all holiday. Lovely, friendly owners and staff. The little Bistro restaurant across the bridge served a really good lamb pie. Hope we will be back... More

We stayed at The Anchorage for 2 nights, and found it to be an excellent place to stay. Very good value for money in particular. The rooms were clean, comfortable and with good facilities. The owners was extremely helpful and very welcoming.

Never seen such a lovely B&B within 11 trips to South Africa! Annette and Craig are so sympatic, just feeling like home. Wonderful and quite surrounding, close to a river. You can use the swimming pool and the separate TV room. One day we´ll be back again.

The Anchorage is a real gem of a B&B. The location is very pretty and tranquil and Annette couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. it is also incredibly good value compared to some others we stayed in in Knysna.

The Anchorage was not only set on the lake, but was so beautifully decorated inside as well. I was sad that we didn't have a chance to use the heated pool - it looked so inviting! Craig made us feel so welcome and we wished we could have stayed longer!

Our room was bright, sunny and welcoming with thoughtful touches everywhere. Beautiful views from the room and the quaint balcony with privacy and quiet surrounding us. We traveled this way for a wedding, but would visit here again for a holiday based on my stay at this wonderful place.

Our overnight stay at The Anchorage was a true pleasure. After a long drive it's an absolute joy to be greeted by such warm and welcoming hosts.
