We were pleasantly surprised with our room with a view - super clean, well-equipped, classy finishes, very comfy, and a lovely view of the bay. The room was spacious and light and felt like a home away from home. Friendly, efficient service and privacy when we wanted it. Would definitely stay here again.

During January 2015 we stayed at Hillview in Knysna for 10 days. The accommodation is laid out as various apartments -some free-standing - on a residential stand. It is located up the hill from the center of the town which we found ideal. Some of the apartments have got stunning views over the estuary. The owners are very kind and... More

My husband and I were looking for a Self Catering Apartment as he was doing the Karoo to Coast Cycle challenge and needed a bicycle friendly unit. When we walked in we were in awe at how beautiful the room was and the view stunning overlooking the Lagoon, the Heads and the ocean! The staff are friendly and very helpful!... More

Stayed for three nights. The room was spacious with all the modern amenities.The room offered excellent and beautiful view of the complete town and the lagoon. The apartments though situated in a quiet neighborhood, are very near to the town centre and waterfront. Highly recommended for short/ long duration stay.

Hillview Self Catering apartments is a very modern and spacious apartment in a quite neighborhood within a 5 min drive to the waterfront. We stayed at Hillview for 2 nights and must confess that we absolutely fell in love with both Kynsna and the apartment. Being on a hill, our apartment offered a great view of the lagoon but it...

Hillview Self-Catering Apartments offers really beautiful, modern and spacious accommodation with a great view on the lagoon. It was too bad we could only enjoy it for just 1 night. We really recommend this place when you plan to spent several days in Knysna.

Very good & quite spacious apartment; close to downtown & all activities. Friendly owner. We could see view only from the living area & not the balcony. Kitchen was clean and overall the the place was very quiet.
