Spent 2 nights here and loved every single minute. The house is just a quick 5 minute drive from the center of Knysna, with safe parking and really stunning views of the bay. We were welcomed with a glass of wine on the porch while the staff whisked our luggage from our car to our room upstairs. The room itself... More

The old victorian villa ist very well run, spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and the staff extraordinary. Both manager ladies are beyond of hospitable, super informative and always there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They serve a delicious breakfast and their chef is the best ever. By far the most delicious meals we had on our trip. The... More

We stayed two nights at the Falcons View Manor and it was a really pleasant surprise. The place is much nicer than the pictures on the homepage suggest. It consists of a main building with a large porch in the front and a nice terrace facing the garden in the back and comprises a beautiful garden including a pool and... More

Stayed here recently for a couple of nights. It is a stunning old manor house set high above the town, providing stunning views across. The house is literally an old manor house which had been renovated. I found it very nice but some may feel it a bit old fashioned. The grounds, with swimming pool, are excellent. From having breakfast... More

We spent three nights at Falcon's View, a delightful Victorian guest house, which commands an outstanding view high above Knysna. The balcony is the perfect spot to appreciate this view, enjoy a Sundowner and watch the sun set. Falcons View has many features including tasteful décor in the house, a courtyard dining area where we breakfasted each morning under parasols... More

My family had 2 rooms at Falcons Manor for 5 nights this January. The place itself is beautiful although up a very steep hill so you would need a car and the rooms were great. Sue and Danielle were the perfect hosts and organised everything we could ever need. We didn't have dinner there but heard other guests very much... More

Before we even arrived, Sue was super helpful with plans even before we arrived via email. We were sadly only able to stay one night so our time was brief, but Sue was really amazing in helping us get booked on the cruise as I had had difficulty getting help from the featherbed company themselves prior to arriving. The room... More
