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.

We stayed three nights at this beautiful guest house, breakfast was included and the food was well presented and served. There was a hot and cold choice with cerials, yogurts, hams cheeses etc the room was very clean and has a nice view looking towards the bay of Knysna. Safe parking and very reasonable rates

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!
