This hotel is really well located, it was only a few minutes to the harbour and some great restaurants. The owners are able to help you book restaurants for the evening, as it can get busy at the nice ones. The room was nice and clean, standard amenities. There was a pool on site and also a BBQ area.

Great situated in the center of Knysna is the b&b Aestas (means Summer). You dont feel like being in the center because of the great quite garden (with pool and sunbeds). Owners Guus & Lidy are Dutch and so lovely! They provide you with all the info needed and book every excursion or trip you want. Breakfast is good. We... More

The approach of the owners, Guus and Lidy, was far above the common word "hospitality". They took care of us in every respect. I especially appreciate useful tips for Knysna and our next plan for Garden route trip. The place is easily to found, in a walking distance from the Knysna centre and waterfront, the breakfast was delicious and room... More

Lidy is the most charming landlady together with her husband Guus. They will help you with everything: transport, city advise or any other kind of information. They have the best breakfast in all South Africa: pancakes, hand-made marmelades, ommeletes, toasted sandwiches... The room is extremely clean and cosy, it's a pity that the space is a little bit narrow also... More

We were very friendly welcomed by the owner and his wife. Two very relaxed people who take the time for a friendly chat with their guests. They also, if desired, give lots of tips about the area and where you can go for a nice dinner too. Our room was just okay. Not big but it had a good bed.... More

It is centrally located, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and in our case, the start of the Knysna Oyster Festival Cycle races. The owners a really very friendly, always helping to get bikes stored away... More
