Beautiful property with truly outstanding views over the lagoon. The room was well equipped and very comfortable. The pool looked lovely too although I didn't get a chance to use it. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and well maintained and I would definitely stay again. The breakfast was excellent with a particularly good buffet selection (in addition to... More

My wife and I stayed here on the recommendation of friends. We had a lovely big room with stunning views over Knysna Bay. There was lots of storage space with plenty of hangers. The room was quite old style but with a very modern bathroom. The bathrobes were outstanding - the softest, fluffiest I've experienced. There was an in-room safe... More

The breakfast was on the porch , excellent , with lots of fresh fruit. The swimming pool is small but... More

The falcons View Manor has so much to like from the moment you arrive until checkout. We stayed in a standard room in the house and it was lovely. Well decorated and luxurious. They have a great pool area and the gardens are manucured and well maintained. The balcony provides great views for sundowners and theres a library and reading... More

Having stayed at this establishment in around 2000, I was looking forward to returning with friends to see how the new owners had got on with the hotel. On arrival, we were offered a drink on the veranda overlooking the lagoon and a chance to drink it all in. The previous trip I had stayed in the garden cottages, so... More

We found Falcons View from recommendation by a fellow traveller we met in Cape Town by chance and we are so pleased we took his advice. Accommodation was fantastic, food exceptional (even by South African standards), and service was second to none. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Falcons View has an elevated... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our trip along the Garden Route and selected it from other reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The gardens and pool area are immaculate and the views from the verandah over Knysna are just stunning. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant, but if it was was anything like the... More

The food was a very high standard and the restaurant intimate and cosy. The highlight is the verandah where... More

We stayed in a superb room - when we say room it was more like a house with a fabulous veranda overlooking the beautiful and well maintained gardens. The staff are incredible attentive and very friendly. The food in the restaurant is really good and the views from the hotel over Knysna are just breath-taking. We would recommend Falcons View...
