Kate and Natalie are two of the most welcoming and helpful owners we came across. The room was a good size with your own outside garden area. The complementary water and snacks are a nice touch but the highlight is the breakfast. The omelettes are very good but the view from the breakfast area is breathtaking. It's a 15 min... More

We stayed in this B&B in November 2015 and were very satisfied. The Dutch hosts were lovely and provided us with a lot of recommendations of things to do in the Knysna area. Rooms were very spacious and clean. We immediately felt at home! We also tested a restaurant they recommended (the Olive Tree), which proved to be one of... More

We stayed at the Double Dutch for 2 nights on our garden route tour. Kate and Natalie are the most welcoming of hosts and their b&b is truly outstanding. We stayed in the Kingfisher room and the view was stunning. Breakfast was lovely. They honestly couldn't do enough to help us with booking restaurants and suggesting places to visit. We... More

A lovely place with the essentials (comfortable rooms, tasty breakfast and very friendly, helpful hosts) supplemented by a lot of nice touches. Convenient location and great views from the breakfast room.

Double Dutch is the benchmark for B&B's. The accommodation is well designed, quiet, clean, spacious and has fantastic views. But what really sets this apart from the competition is the hospitality offered by Kate, Nathalie and their staff. Arriving late on the first night, Kate and Nathalie had kindly booked us in for dinner at a local restaurant to secure... More

Top class amenities wonderful hosts at a great location. Stayed for 5 nights and wished it could have been longer. Recommended restaurants were all first class. The pressure of organising bookings and arranging taxis when necessary was handled by Kate and Natalie. Breakfasts were prompt with a varied selection to suite all palates. Accommodation superb.

Superbly run B&B operation - from arrival (every query answered, including many we hadn't even thought of, dinner reservations made, day trip tips provided), throughout our stay (good breakfasts (waffles a nice variation of the usual fare), nice poolside area (little used, surprisingly)) and through to our departure (everything friendly, smoothly and efficiently done). Rooms and whole place impeccable, modern... More

Kate and Nathalie are just fantastic hosts. Their B&B is positioned uphill facing the lagoon with a stunning view. Driving distance from Storm River and Tsitsikomma we decided to base here our shirt but intense journey. Top class structure, very clean and furnished with all you need when traveling. Breakfast is at least for Italians, very good. Maybe adding Espresso... More

Wonderful B&B, lovely location, excellent accomodation and great hosts who could not do enough for you......we will definitely be back! A short walk into to town to some nice restaurants and atmopshere. Everything you need is in the area, we were there mainly for golf which was very good but others were there for all kind of reasons and everyone... More
