Beautiful gardens, gracious hostess..Each morning Karen makes a delicious breakfast. Everything about our stay was comfortable and relaxing, felt very at home.

This is the second time we have stayed at Lavender Hill. Both times have been for a week or more. We stayed in room #1 both times and love it. It is clean, spacious and opens up onto the wrap around back porch. Karen, the owner is an incredible sweet spirit. She will do everything to make your stay perfect.... More

We stayed at the Lavender Hill House for 3 nights in the appartment. It had 2 bedrooms, a living room area plus a good equipped kitchen - this was perfect for us as a family. There was also a huge garden where we could chill. The breakfast was great, you could tell that very good ingredients were used. The best... More

Situated at the outer parts of Knysna in a calm area. Charming place with a lot of nice details like a bottle of sherry on the room and a "help your self bar" with very reasonable prices. Nice owner and god breakfast.

Had a comfortable stay! Nice rooms and nice breakfast. It is a little off so you will need a car to get around. Also lovely new host that took over in August of 2014! Small precious lavender details everywhere which makes it special and calmly situated in a green area.

Our stay was very short, but we were very happy. The facilities were clean and very well-equipped - and spacious enough for a family of four. The staff were very friendly and helpful, making our stay pleasant.

Our trip to Knysna included staying 3 nights at Lavender Hill Guest House and we were glad we did! The building itself is amazing and not far from the Knysna Heads; and surrounded by beautiful greenery. Knysna centre is just a stone's throw away. The accomodation was of a very high standard and the full English breakfast was delicious! Karen... More

Spent New Year's Eve at Lavennder Hills. What a wonderful home. Breakfast was amazing. The owner went out of her way to ensure we were all comfortable. The beds were amazing, the entire home so neat. Definitely will return on our next trip to Knysna.
