Spent such a lovely long weekend in Knysna. Was spoilt in luxury with a beautiful spacious room, huge bath for two and warm romantic fire place. Ypie, Erik and Sandy made us feel so at home and took excellent care of us. We unfortunately had to leave earlier than anticipated at 2am, instead of the scheduled 10:00am and was caringly... More

Staff very welcoming and able to cook hot breakfast to perfection. Delicious welcoming hot pancakes for breakfast which made my kids and my day! For Knysna it is the... More

The property is lovely and beautifully maintained. Very neat and cosy. There is a great restaurant MO cafe close by. we also loved our visit to fresh line fisheries... More

We were so impressed with this great accommodation. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded from a standard to a luxury room. We were graciously welcomed and shown around the beautiful and spacious room by a very helpful manager. She recommended restaurants and also organized taxi services for us. The owners are lovely and really showed a interest in our... More

Bit far from town. No luggage rack in room. TV very limited. Cold plates for breakfast. Breakfast only served from 8am, needed hot breakfast earlier.Could get the cold element earlier. Room 1 not very warm despite a wall heater. Only view from room 1 was small front garden and wall.

I stayed for 2 nights and we were luckily upgraded to the family unit where we were more than comfy. Breakfast was so amazing i was stuffing myself with their delicious food. A complete menu from every restaurant in knysna available which was really handy

Friendly and helpful staff and hosts. Breakfast was really nice and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Free wifi. Definitly a cosy place to stay with secure parking. A bit far from the centre of town but the service received was worth it. We Will definitely come back.

This was one of the best places we stayed at on our garden route holiday, the rooms were really nice, gardens are beautiful and the staff running the house very friendly and helpful. We were very fortunate with the weather and had breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool every morning, which was very relaxing. I would definitely stay at... More

Best on the garden route,in my opinion.But I'll be surprised if you will find a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left,we were treated like friends,rather than guests.everyone connected to the hotel were friendly and informative. A special mention to Sandy who is like a little sergeant major (in a nice way!) The... More
