The Manor House is a lovely B&B guesthouse, centrally located but still pretty quiet. The hosts are more than friendly and helpful which let me feel very welcome and looked after. Breakfast is good and enjoyable on the terrasse with a lovely view. Unfortunately I had this very small single room right next to the reception which temporarily was noisy.... More

A lovely guest house overlooking Knysna with a great view from a wooden deck and within walking distance to Main Street and Knysna shopping centre. Very accommodating owners, friendly staff, great breakfast and excellent value.

I would really recommend Knysna Manor for a great family holiday. They even arranged for a cot for my 6mths old baby in our room. Their rooms are very spacious, friendly staff and a great breakfast. As a family we enjoyed splashing around in their pool which is a nice size for kids. They have safe parking & a beautiful... More

Our welcome was a bit harsh, but later on it turned out that the old lady host couldn't hear well. We had the choice between a very small room with a tiny balcony or a larger one which was rather gloomy. As we spent 5 nights there and like to sit outside we took the one with more light. But...

Hi Cinderella We thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. I was unaware that the elderly manager was short of hearing. I am also a bit worried about the smells that you associated with the guesthouse. I understand about the smell of bacon cooking in the morning, because as you know, breakfast is offered, but with...

The accomodation was fine, it's just not a very child friendly B&B. We had to try and keep our 2 year old quiet as we were requested to by the owner as i don't think they were used to or understood what kids are like.

Hi Carl, I apologise that you didn't think the guesthouse was child friendly. I must admit that with the wooden floors, noises are amplified, and if children (I am a mother, so I know how they love to stomp about) stomp about, it does tend to sound louder than it normally would. I am glad that you took the time... More

The Knysna Manor Lodge is fantastic. Clean rooms, bathrooms and the service is brilliant. The staff are efficient and friendly. The owner is a warm and welcoming host. We stayed there over the Christmas holidays and she even managed to get us a dinner booking for Christmas Day at JJ's which was full! Within quick distance to all sights in... More

The Knysna Manor Guest House is located very centrally but very quit as well. The rooms was furnished in old style and very generous in size. Excellent breakfast. The host was very friendly and helpful.
