Thanks, Karen, for your efficient, caring service at your lovely home. Our stay was, very comfortable and we enjoyed the lovely view from our room with its opening on to the verandah. Your breakfast was great! We'll come again if we get another opportunity to spend time in Knysna!

My sister, who stays in Knysna, booked us in at Lavender Hill, Kathy said that it came highly recommended. The lady that met us, don't know her name, was cordial but her husband was very friendly. The room that we stayed in was very nice and clean. There are doors that opened onto a lovely verander that overlooked a dam... More

The lady(Karen) was very hospitable towards me and my colleague. We loved the rooms, and found them affordable. The location of the lodge was ideal for us as we could easily go to town and the venue of our workshop. i liked the service I received most and I did not like that the water was warm not hot.

Edith and Cecil are always friendly and obliging, right down to finding a feather pillow for me. It made all the difference. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are private and spacious and the owners are there to satisfy your every request. What more can one want in such a fabulous town!

We had to find a place to stay on Knysna at short notice and found Lavender Hill. We were fortunate to get the self catering unit on the upper level. It is very well laid out with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The unit is very neat and clean - and is serviced daily. We loved sitting on the balcony... More

Very nice location, accomodations & service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good tips on where to eat & places to go & see. We enjoyed it so much that we went back and spent another night during our travels.

We had a lovely stay, albeit short, at Lavender Hill. The room was very well equipped and clean, and Edith and Cecil were delightful hosts. The breakfast was exceptionally good and we felt very welcome. The futon was a little uncomfortable for the kids, but otherwise all was excellent.

I stayed at Lavender Hill 9 days in December, and it was great. Cecile and Edith are doing a great job, great breakfast. And the rooms are excellent value. Next time I was in Knysna with the kids, I chose Lavender Hill again. This is the best review, isn't it ? Another room, suitable for 3 persons, again everything perfect.... More

During our South Africa trip, we stayed there for three nights. Initially, we planned to stay only for one night, but we have then extended our stay because it is such a wonderful Guest House. Edith and Cecil are very warm and nice. The rooms are great and the breakfast left nothing to be desired. So 100% recommended. Dear Edith... More
