We loved the appearance and atmosphere of this B&B, very english, beautifully decorated and surrounded by a superb flower garden, just like out of "Home & Garden", absolute perfection. The host is a very friendly lady and the breakfast was excellent. In spite of being directly on the N2, you easily forget that after passing the gate and as it... More

We stayed here one night on our way across the Garden Route to Cape Town. Beautiful old colonial 2 story home set in a manicured garden with water views. Quiet room with all amenities and a wonderful breakfast overlooking the water. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Stayed here for one night and were very impressed. We were in a lovely garden room at the back of the guesthouse. We arrived early and were warmly welcomed. Pat and Lynn both gave us advice on places to see and their recommendations were very good. Breakfast was generous and varied. Would recommend.

Stayed here twice, in 2 different rooms. Cannot be faulted. In perfect position, only a few minutes to knysna centre. The hosts (especially Lynn) were delightful. Lynn even recognised us and remembered which room we had stayed in previously even though it had been 12 months since our previous visit. Yes the N2 is right there, but it really isn't... More

We stayed one night on our way up to Jhb and I wish that we had time to stay longer, definitely next time. On arrival Lynn was so helpful and informative on where to eat and places to see. The room overlooking the lagoon was beautiful, the colours so calming and these were the same downstairs in the lounge/breakfast room,fantastic.... More

I'll be honest, I was a bit worried when we pulled in and could see how close the house was to the main road, but I needn't have worried. The great accommodation, tasty breakfasts and lovely hosts hosts (Lynn and Pat) make this a fantastic spot to base yourself for Knysna. We had a room at the back of the... More

We stayed here in December with Lynn and Pat. Lovely room, comfy bed, clean and tidy. The breakfast was lovely. Lyn and Pat have a wealth of knowledge of the local area, and Lyn gave us a map with all attractions close by to help us choose where to go. It is located within walking distance of the waterfront. The... More

We spent two nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The owner was very welcoming and she gave us a lot of useful tips on restaurant and things to do, and despite the bad weather we really enjoyed our time there! We had one of the cheapest rooms, really excellent value for money. Nicely decorated and very clean. The home... More

Good location just at the edge of Main Street that runs right through the heart of the town , Quite a new building but not the new ultra modern boutique type , very clean and well kept . Very nice gardens in the front and back . Even though on the Main Street quite quiet in the front garden where... More
