Had the pleasure to stay for 4 nights at one of those rare places you wish you could come back to over and over again! The room hung over the bluff, the ocean energy and scenery were second only to the wonderful staff who spared no effort to make us happy. Thank you all so much!

We arrived in Knysna after the sun had gone down so we didn't get to see the beauty of Knysna. When we arrived at Head over Hills we were greeted by the most friendly and welcoming lady who had immediately made us feel completely at home. When we awoke the following morning we opened the blinds and literally our breath... More

What a stunning location, boutique b&b, outstanding! The staff were relaxed and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was offered one night of our two, which was homely and tasty. The room and facilities, trust bar, pool, jacuzzi were all first class. A real treat for any traveller! Ps plus a pod of dolphins one morning for light entertainment.

The best site in town, perched atop the Eastern Head overlooking the Knysna River (or Lagoon) and the Indian Ocean. Not only do the ladies offer the warmest welcome on arrival, but the welcome stayed unbroken throughout our 4-day stay and was truly genuine (not put on). If I write what they went the extra loooong mile to do, everyone... More

Head over Hills was absolutely out of this world! From the moment that we walked in we felt "at home'! Everyone went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable. The view from our room was heavenly and where ever you go in the guesthouse the scenery is just spectacular! We will definitely be back.

Received a very warm welcome from the owners. The rooms are beautifully appointed with fantastic views. The breakfast has a wonderful selection and the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. My only complaint would be the water pressure and temperature control in the shower and the fact that the toilet in was a bit cramped in the corner.

we recently spent a long weekend with friends at Head Over Hills. Starting from the amazing sights, everything at the hotel is outstanding. The rooms, all different, have all luxury required, two of them with sauna inside. Breakfast and dinner (on request) are made with high quality local seafood and shellfish.

After much research on the internet my wife and I selected H over H from the myriad of options available. After negotiating the long winding access roads and the steep steep drive way my first impression of the retreat was that it is just as it appears on the Internet photos. An amazing property, very well appointed and run by... More
