Its easy to understand why this guest house carries the name that it does, indeed, both my partner and I fell head over heals in love with the most spectacular views! Our stay was as perfect as we'd ever imagine a stay in someone's guest house could ever be. It is Immaculately, comfortable and private. Neil and Cindy proved to... More

My fiancée and I were utterly blown away by not only the prompt, sincere and exemplary customer service, but also the views, atmosphere and beautiful rooms. You will be hard-pressed to find a more soothing, tranquil and romantic environment - or more exquisite panoramic views of the Knysna Heads. We would recommend these accommodations to anyone.

The most amazing views, great service and attention to detail are what makes Head over Hills an unforgettable experience. Management and staff go out of their way to ensure that the high standards are maintained at all times - from the correspondence and contact before arrival, to the generous breakfast made with lots of love and all the little details...

What a special place. Amazing setting wonderful views . Sara is amazing not scared to assist with bookings and making you feel at home. Breakfasts are wholesome and tastie . I recommend soaking up the sun while chilling in the jacuzzi . In the evenings you can have a sundowner while drifting off looking at the Western Head. Well done.

The lady that met us somehow knew our names. Talk about personalised service. Such friendly staff. The place is really amazing - it is really hard to leave to go explore other places in Knysna. Stunning views.

Just came back from 2 nights stay. Host Sara was friendly and helpful. The Dolphin room we stayed was clean although not huge but just enough for two people. Great view from room and ground floor has a swimming pool and a jacuzzi over look The Head and the ocean. Over all, great stay! Would go back again!
