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

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...

By far the nicest place we stayed in ZA. Amazing views, very friendly staff. Lovely gardens.The best food we ate in ZA, without a doubt. Why bother going into town ? Perched right up above the lagoon. A 1st gear climb in the car, but definitely worth it ! Could have stayed for MUCH longer !!

Five stars is not enough for this very special place. This upscale inn has 10 units and magnificent grounds. The common rooms are elegant yet comfortable. The inn is located on a hill overlooking the town of Knysna. Breakfast is served in their lovely gardens and consists of a healthy buffet and hot breakfast choices. The bedrooms are well appointed...

I've been lucky enough to stay in some great places around the world but for me, this ranked among he very best. We stayed three nights in September 2014and the whole experience was just wonderful. The location is superb, with views out over Knysna bay, the atmosphere of the hotel is 'old worldly' calm and peaceful but with tip top... More

We spent one night at Falcons View Manor whilst on our honeymoon recently. It also happened to be my birthday that day. The guest house overlooked Knysna giving stunning views over the lagoon. The guest house had been recently decorated and our room was beautiful. All the staff were friendly and we were very well looked after. We ate out... More
