It was a pleasure staying here. Unfortunately only one night and a short stay, but will definitely be back. The breakfast was great and the owners are very friendly. Rooms are very clean and a lot of thought is put into extras and rooms.

Lovely setting with a warm friendly atmosphere. Just a few things that were not what I would expect from a 4 star Guest Lodge: the ashtray on the table outside our room was dirty on arrival, the duvet looked like it was 2 sizes too small for the bed, there were only side plates available to dish breakfast onto and...

We had a wonderful stay here, spending 2 nights one of the family cottages. Our hosts, Patrick and Helen, were great. While eating breakfast, Patrick gave us good tips on what to do in the area and where to eat for dinner. The location is also great, and very close to Leisure Island. I was actually able to jog to...

We had such a wonderful stay at Stannards Guestlodge. We stayed in the family cottage with my daughters and some friends. We all loved the decoration. The room are very big, clean, very pretty and very well equiped. The patio just calls for a nice glass of wine after a day exploring the area. Couldn't ask for nicer hosts. Patrick... More

We stayed in the self catering cottage at the pool and we had an amazing time. Patrick made a braai for us and we watched Champions League football in the honesty bar. And we got excellent tips for day trips around Knysna. We felt like staying at a friends place. Would go there again and again.

We just completed a 4 night stay stay at Stannards, having visited them 3 years ago. It was just as good as we remember, Patrick and Helene are great hosts, they know Knysna well and are willing to help and advise where asked. Our cottage (the smaller of the two) was spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated and exceedingly comfortable, as... More

Only a short stop for one night, but one we kept in mind. A very nice room in a beautiful Lofge, surrounded by a wonderful garden. Very quiet - a good place to stay. What we liked very much was the nice contact to the hosts who make a fantastic job. We felt like home and enjoyed also the information... More

We selected Stannards after the beautiful pictures of the guest house in the website. When we arrived we found the place even more beautiful and poetic than we expected. We had a cottage for four people, two rooms with private bathroom. The decor was colorful, vibrant and accurate. The friendly owner has prepared a braai at the pool just for... More

Stannards is a well placed guest lodge in the pleasant suburb of Hunters Home. The hosts are charming and the accommodation comfortable and pleasant with a French feel. Each room has a small terrace with chairs and a table and, if you are lucky, you will overlook the beautiful garden and pool. There is a feeling of tranquility, and much... More
