We too were on a Garden Route tour with this property pre-selected as part of the itinerary. We arrived on a wet, windy dreary afternoon and were met by our cheerful host Chris who runs the place with wife Gelia and her parents. We found the kitchen well stocked with wine and water "to go" on the honor system and... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for 1 night on a tour we were doing down the coast. The staff were very welcoming, helped us with our luggage and ensured we had everything we might need. Rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Decor was a bit dated but this added to the homely, quaint atmosphere of the place. The... More

The lodge provided everything we wanted after a long journey along the Garden Route. The room was very comfortable and had a stunning view of the lagoon. Chris and Gelia produced an excellent breakfast and Chris' omelette should not be missed. Would thoroughly recommend this lodge for anyone travelling along the Garden Route.

A beautiful location in lush gardens overlooking the lagoon and very welcoming hosts. However it’s quite dated and old-fashioned compared with other guest houses I stayed in and doesn’t offer much in the way of mod cons such as digital TV, free WiFi and A/C. Not at all bad, but is in danger of falling behind the competition which is... More

We stayed for two nights over the busiest weekend of the annual Oyster Festival. The hosts are amazing and very friendly, our room was nice and clean, the fireplace all prepared and ready to just light - a great touch! Even the toilet paper was left with a little paw print sticker on it... it's that kind of attention to... More

We stayed at the Fish Eagle Lodge 25th - 29th March 2013. Location: 5 minutes’ drive from the centre of Knysna, with nice views over the lagoon. Being up on the hills, you have a feeling of being in a secluded spot, although you could hear traffic on the N2 below you when windows were open. Room: Spacious and clean,... More

We stayed two nights at Fish Eagle Lodge. We had a nice and clean room with a fireplace, view of the lagoon and a patio. The whole property is well kept, with a nice pool (again with a great view of the lagoon). Chris and Gelia, who speak German, were very cordial and attentive, with good recommendations for activities in... More

Wonderful hosts Chris and Gelia, great breakfast spread, comfortable rooms and quiet location on a hilltop overlooking the inland part of the lagoon. Next time I'm in Knysna I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

We will always remember our lovely stay at Fish Eagle Lodge, close enough to the action of Knysna waterfront and far away enough to be an oasis to come home to. The lodges on the property are in the style of wooden chalets and our Crowned Eagle room had a balcony with a view and interesting African decor inside. Our... More
