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

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

The Stannards Guest Lodge is an outstanding place to relax and experience the area around Knysna. The rooms are furnished with love and were always clean. The owners were very welcoming and gave us some tips how to make the most of our time in Knysna. Buffallo bay and the Knysna heads are a must-go. We spent two amazing days... More

We stayed at Stannards Guest Lodge for the third time this december 2013. As usual we got a very warm welcome by Helen and Patrick who owns and run the Lodge. This time we stayed at the "Bungalow" in the garden. Perfectly siyuated close to the pool and the BBQ area. The graden is butiful, the rooms very Clean, and... More
