We stayed four nights at Falcon's View on a recent trip to South Africa. The hotel accommodation, meals and location are all excellent as are the stunning views overlooking Knysna. The staff were wonderful and we received first class service and assistance throughout our stay including ideas for restaurants and trips

What a beautiful place, looking over the Knysna lagoon and Thesen Island... Built by the Thesen family who arrived here from Sweden en route to Australia. They settled here late 1800's. It is purported Mr Thesen built this lovely place so he could monitor his timber business on Thesen Island. Thankfully 2 super guys from Germany purchased the house 11... More

This is a truly lovely place to stay. Staff are informative and polite. Accommodation is very comfortable. Peaceful location in delightful gardens with a lovely pool. Meals are served in the pretty garden area and the food is 5star. The service here is very good and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. I met the owners who are... More

Beautiful place, wonderful surroundings, very peaceful. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. Have a glass of champagne on the veranda looking out onto the lagoon and see a beautiful sunset. It is behind the mountains but colors are amazing. I felt finally relaxed. The house is a very well maintained old beautiful house. Great breakfast. We... More

What can I say except - fabulous! Much more than we were expecting. A small, country house in a wonderful location overlooking Knysna Bay. The large rooms are well furnished and Danielle and Sue, the Managers, are very helpful. An unexpected bonus were the delicious evening meals which were on a par with the best local restaurants. The highlight for... More

Since Falcons View Manor is a five-star guesthouse, we were expecting an extraordinary place with that special touch. There was nothing like that - no fresh flowers in the room, no chocolate on the bed, no welcoming letter, no complimentary bottle of wine or champagne. It was very disappointing. And the muniicipality at the time had started sawing down branches... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a beautiful garden suite. The room was lovely and beautifully appointed, although the lighting in the bathroom could have been better. Parking was located within the gated grounds and just fine. Sadly, we never did have occasion to use the pool. The grounds are lovely. The view from the front porch looking over Knysna... More

We stayed at Falcon's View Manor for two nights, from 15th to 16th July 2015. We were presently surprised by the quality of the accommodation, given how competitively priced it is. The room we stayed in was large, and there was also a spa and underfloor heating in the bathroom. The view from our room was excellent, given the accommodation... More

The reception, the service, the room, the food, the view, the location. Wow. Fantastic. The only jarring note came when I asked where tips went: "to all the staff". 'Including the night guard?' "Oh, no, we give him what we can from time to time." But that's SA for you - fabulous if you close one eye. I guess a... More
