Staying at the Amber guesthouse you have great views over Knysna - though as it is a bit out of the centre, it is best to have a car to get around. The room was clean and the staff helpful and friendly.

The owner is personally welcoming all guests and tries to ensure that everyone is happy. Very nice rooms and very well maintained, very good breakfast. A lot of local information provided and as well a good books and DVD library available Definitely a place to go back to.

Me and my wife had a very realxing stay at Amber guest house. The host and hostess made us feel welcome and served us very politely. We were treated with a beautiful view during breakfast as well as a very delicious breakfast. Will definately visit again.

We really enjoyed the view over the lagune. The room was nice furnished and bright and got a big bathroom. The breakfast was really good too and we felt cordially welcomed. So we can very much recommend the Amber Guest Lodge.

I had an unexpected business trip to Knysna, so the booking was made at short notice. We were accommodated in the executive suite which was a delight: a living area with both sofas and a dining area.
