I recommend you all to stay there,... More

The room is cleaned every morning and it's a total pleasure to stay there. We used the outside braai almost every day and after a day at the beach, we... More

I stayed in Knysna as part of my personal vacation, and immediately after stepping in to my room, "the rose" at forget-me-not, I was blown away by the view of Knysna stretching out to the 'heads'. Mary was a wonderful and very helpful host, and the location was perfect for me to have access to all that this little part... More

We stayed with Mary again in mid November and had a fabulous time. The location is excellent, easy access, near the Knysna centre, the Waterfront, The Mill, The Craggs and the excellent Plettenberg Game Park. Mary makes one so welcome and the self catering facility excellent. This year we visited The Heads and enjoyed the Featherbed nature reserve which is... More

My wife and I stayed at Forget-Me-Not for a very pleasant relaxing week. We most enjoyed our meals on the balcony overlooking Knysna Lagoon. We were even allowed to bring our little poodle. A very hospitable establishment and a very friendly and helpful hostess. Lutz N

In addition to being in a great location, super clean, well maintained and well appointed what really made the stay lovely was the owner Mary. She was welcoming, kind, friendly with our kids and very helpful. A real treat to deal with. One of... More
