Really enjoyed my stay here - it's located right behind a charming little village where there are a few shops/restaurants as well as an indoor/outdoor mall. The breakfast is pretty basic but it's served in a nice atmosphere. I didn't stay inside the main house so I can't really comment on the rooms as I stayed in the budget room... More

I really enjoyed the stay. The whole area is lovely, the inside has a lot of character, the rooms were comfortable and breakfasts were fantastic. It's also situated perfectly in town so going anywhere is quick and easy.

so glad that the room was to your liking and that you were warm. I know in the old house, it can tend to be very cold. Brenda does go out of her way to assist guests in whatever way she can. We do look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Gail Dalton Knysna Manor House More

Stayed for only one night, but found the accommodation very comfortable and the service good. The owners are actively involved in running and managing their establishment. I would gladly recommend Knysna Manor house.

Knysna Manor House has a old school look to it. We had a decent size room with very comfortable beds. They also serve a delicious full farm breakfast. We just stayed over night so we didn't make use of any of the other facilities.

My students were extremely happy with the service they received. They have been talking non-stop about the great time they had at the Manor. I will definitely book again and recommend to others in future :)

Hi Nicole, I am so glad that your school group enjoyed staying at our guesthouse. I know that Brenda goes out of her way to please guests, and am happy to note that the children were still talking about it after their trip.

The locality suited us for the conference we attended in the centre of town. The management were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfasts. Unfortunately the wrong time of the year to use the swimming pool.

Friendly staff and great breakfast. My room smelt of smoke when I arrived and had to be sprayed. One morning my bed was not made and room not cleaned. Please could do with a spruce up. Great location for central Knysna and safe parking a bonus. Good value for money

Good Morning, Firstly I apologise for the room smelling of smoke, as the rooms at Knysna Manor House are non-smoking rooms. Also apologies for the room not being made up, if you could advise me of your dates of travel, and room number, I can take this up with the relevant personnel.
