What a perfect Guest house. Janet is an amazing host. We loved the hospitality, welcome, helpfulness, comfort, views. Our kids were let down by a taxi service (not booked by Ambers), no problem Janet rushed my kids in her own car to the 1/2 marathon finish so they could watch us finish, We loved Ambers' and certainly if you do...

Wonderful stay with attentive owners who advised where to eat in the evenings. Accomodation was very nice, and breakfasts were lovely. The house was easy to find from directions supplied, and within easy reach of Knysna and environs.

We had a pleasant stay at Amber Guest Lodge. Very friendly and cooperative. Excellent location to see the Heads and surroundings. Breakfast was also a party! We stayed with 2 adults and 2 kids (14 & 11), they also liked it very much. (DVD's, swimming pool)

I booked here thinking it was at the Heads, but no matter, very close to Heads and overlooking lagoon. Very welcoming and charming hosts with a very sweet welcome from their boxer dog. Learnt that hostess walks spca dogs in the mornings - wonderful!

Friendly atmosphere . Breakfast was excellent and in a beautiful setting on the open porch overlooking the harbor. Rooms were very clean and well kept. Good reccomendations were made on places to eat in the Knsyna area.

We only stayed one night and would definitely come here again. The owner, Derek looked after us as soon as we arrived and made some coffee to welcome us. The rooms were immaculate, very modern and spacious. And the pool was very clean and inviting. The breakfast was fantastic with fresh pastries and lots of choices for cooked breakfast!

This is the second time we have stayed here. Derek looked after us well and provided good information about the area. Much better than the standard impersonal hotel environment, it's great to chat to fellow guests in this small friendly guest house - breakfasts are superb!

Its very clean and good for a stay overnight. (come late and go early) Every room face the entry, like a Motel without cars. Nothing for a longer stay. People are friendly and a good breakfast. Quit in the night.
