This property is in a good location with ample parking. The guest house is very tired and needs some TLC. The room was a good size and comfortable. The building with some love could be really lovely. It also backs onto a fuel station.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. Since taking over the guesthouse in 2007, we have slowly been renovating the house, with redoing of bathrooms, total refurbishment of all bed linens, swimming pool, new deck along with other things. We understand that our guesthouse is old, and take pride in the fact that it is a... More

Thank you for your hospitality! We had a great stay. I would suggest an air-con in the room for the hot weather, though! Breakfast was delicious and kids loved the pool! The location was ideal - just a walk down the road and we were at the Waterfront!

Good Afternoon Di, You are most welcome. I have addressed the aircon before with other guests. Knysna Manor House is an Historical Building, and we there, by law, cannot alter the outside of the building in anyway, therefore making it impossible for us to install air-conditioners in all the rooms. Glad that you all enjoyed the breakfast and that the... More

Wonderful ladies running the manor. Although we only stayed a night, we absolutely loved the accommodation, clean, eveything we needed and we were well accommodated with our large group. I would definitely recommend this property to others. Hafeeza Sader

Nice cozy B&B with a wonderfull view from the terrace. We had their flat with a bunk bed, a doublebed and a sofabed. Nice with a fridge in the heat, and If you travel selfcatering the kitchen is ok. Not much equipment though, budt clean.

Thank you for your comments. I take note your lack of equipment in the flat, and would appreciate feedback as to what we can add to improve the facilities. I am a bit concerned that your overall rating was only a 1, but in all sections, you rated us 3 and over. Again, any feedback would be appreciated so that... More

The manor is well situated if you are looking to stay in the center of Knysna as it is closed to all the amenities. If you need some silence far from the busy city, then the location is not ideal. The service is great, breakfast superb and Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and very... More
