We found the Inyathi Guest House to be a wonderful spot for a stopover. The jungle decor was charming, the host very friendly and helpful. His recommendation for eating were very accurate (shame he wouldn't share his bobotie pie recipe with us....top secret!)

A really cute cluster of individual garden houses. They had everything you need and were very comfortable. The owners are fun and sociable, always up for a chat and possibly even a drink in the evening in their beautiful gardens. A really good experience.

The owners were incredibly hospitable and very helpful. We often asked them questions and were immediately able to give information. The only criticism is that wi-fi wasn't always reliable while there.

Being in Knysna it is a rustic built of wood establishment, and has a lot of appeal. It is central and convenient to the Knysna places of tourist interest and... More

Second time in this cosy guesthouse. Tree top room, consists of 3 parts, bedroom, bathroom and livingroom, each pretty small, but together more than enough space. Large outdoor private shower and also a nice private part where you can sit outside and get a glimpse of the ocean. Higher priced than the other rooms, but worth it. Breakfast options as... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time in Knysna. It's a cool town with an even cooler hostel with a great atmosphere, nice staff and a beautiful environment! The beaches are perfect for bathing and surfing!

I would recommend them... More
