We had a three night stay here at Falcons View and it was excellent in all regards. Our room was big clean & luxurious. The staff were very friendly & the food top class. We had a lovely breakfast each morning and a dinner on one of the evenings after a long day out and about. It was delicious. The... More

We stayed 2 nights and had a great experience here.. All staff were very nice and very informative in helping plan our time in Knysna. While its low season, we saw a couple of other parties staying here. The house is gorgeous and grand, however their beautiful open fire places remained unlit the whole time we were there which was...

A little too quiet maybe but all good quality. A fridge in the room would have been good. Evening meal choice was quite limited and they all had to be at the same time. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. View was good but thre road to it was very steep. Knysna itself was quite a splendid area.

We were made extremely welcome with a drink on the veranda overlooking Knysna and the harbour. Our room was immaculate and so was the superb bathroom. The friendly and professional staff were always on hand to assist in any way. We booked in for dinner on each evening and enjoyed excellent meals. The wine list is first class. The breakfasts...

From the moment we arrived until we left it was an amazing experience. The rooms, food, service, helpfulness etc was excellent. Our whole experience was stunning. We felt at home and nothing we asked was ever to much. Keep up the good work. We felt our money was well spent. Excellent!!!!!

Absolutely the highlight of our week. The rooms, facilities, food, staff were all excellent. Best value for money we found on our trip up the garden route. The attention to detail was amazing and the way the staff dealt with any minor points was superb.

I normally don't leave any reviews as most hotel experiences tend to be fairly similar and we did not have any negative experiences anywhere on the Garden Route. However, the Falcons View Manor really stood out in terms of service. The German owners together with the reception managers Sue and Danielle have succeeded in creating a fantastic family atmosphere in... More

We stayed two nights and loved every moment of it, Sue and Danielle made our stay so comfortable nothing was too much trouble. The information and greeting they gave us surpassed any we had in the 10 days of our journey from Cape town to Port Elizabeth. We had a manor room on the front, the view was wonderful. Everything...
