Lovely hosts, and a breathtaking setting. Very comfortable bed and breakfast. This website is forcing me to make my review atleast 200 characters. That's annoying. Complete opposite of our lovely stay at Xanadu

I go to the George/ Knysna area every 8 weeks on business (and have for the past 2 and a half years), and stay at Xanadu every time. It is so luxurious, quiet, relaxing and beautiful that I don't even want to look elsewhere. Highly, highly recommended.

Overnight stop on route to Port Elizabeth. Spent about 5 min. looking for correct turn off. (I had no GPS) After slow response to knocking on arrival had no further complaints. Room extremely well equipped and comfortable with good views. Will return again when in area. HIGHLY recommended with good breakfast.

My dear Friend, This establishment is rather large , best plan is not to knock ,chances are that this will not be heard , rather use the electric BELL at the front door next time!! Our front door stands wide open most of the time , feel free to just walk right in. Regards, Albert. More

We stayed in a large suite with a spectacular view of the sea--lovely deck and very elegant furnishings. However, we were there in late June and it was very chilly. There was a wall heating/AC unit in the bedroom but it was noisy. The second room of the suite with bathroom and dressing room was huge, unheated, and very chilly.... More

Dear Valerie, Sorry that you felt cold , as you mentioned the A/C do heating . but don't adjust it to full blast . If the fan is operated at a lower speed it is almost silent. What about the electric blanket on the bed, did you make use of it? If you had mentioned any request for additional heating... More

Xanadu has been our perfect holiday destination for the past four years.

Dear Friends, Your review leaves us in two minds ; on the one hand we feel very humble and honored by the positive and well meant review , on the other I am quite nervous on how we can improve- no doubt Tersia will find a number of ways!! As a wise man said: "Success is not a destination ,... More

We stayed here for 1 night and I wish I had booked for longer. What an impressive place and everything from the staff (including the owners) to the service made us feel very special indeed. We stayed in the Neptune Room and the view is awesome. The bed faces the ocean across an open-plan style living room with flat screen... More
