Located seven hundred metres from the town centre at the summit of a steep hill, the Victorian veranda at Falcons View’s offers jaw-dropping views across the lagoon and of Knysna Heads (a breathtaking draw for visitors, because of the treacherous channel at the mouth of the Knysna River). Each evening Falcon View’s owners and guests gather on the veranda celebrate... More

Our hosts were friendly and helpful for advice on the local attractions. The room was huge, spotless and really comfortable, only downside was the breakfast as we didn't get what we ordered both days we stayed here. You have to eat at the olive tree restaurant which is very close if you can get in.

Three of us stayed here for two nights at the end of April and we had a fantastic stay. Our two rooms were in the main house with stunning views over Knysna and Thesen Island, with the Heads in the distance. The rooms were immaculate and the bathrooms large and spacious. We loved the décor of the rooms and the... More

A truly lovely place to spend a night or two in beautiful Knysna - South Africa. An old house, now a National Heritage Site, is very comfortable with well appointed rooms and well maintained with beautiful views of Knysna.
