I spent two weeks in Knysna as part of an educational exchange with a local school. While my students lived with local host families, I stayed at Guinea Fowl, and couldn't have asked for a better place. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with a cozy, private terrace overlooking the Heads, Thesen Island, and the sea. The views are breathtaking. The... More

The next day we received an excellent breakfast on the terrace and had our... More

I attended the Knysna Oyster Festival and was treated like royalty. Taking part in the sporting events for the week I looked for a place that provided comfort and received that with the bonus of great hospitality, excellent breakfasts, breath taking views and only 2mins walk from town and the festival. Guinea Fowl is definitely the place to stay and... More

Again, Pete and Mart did not disappoint! Guinea Fowl Lodge is not only a comfortable and welcoming guest house, but conveniently situated two minutes' walk from the town centre. Private outside "porch" leading onto the garden, with table and chairs is wonderful. Stayed in June which was cold, but the room was already heated when i arrived. Pete's breakfasts are... More

Stayed recently here and was very happy. Handy location for the town and has a swimming pool too. Lovely spot for a sunny breakfast on the balcony overlooking Knysna. Very friendly staff and helpful for any travel tips you may need.

Nice view over the lagoon but only if sitting on the public balcony. View from rooms were either to the parking lot (literally in front of the room) or to a hedge. No internet access at all. No public hotspots available. Owners garden not clean at all (covered by dog droppings all over). However, owners were very helpful in giving... More

The Guinea Fowl Lodge is on a hill, overviewing Knysna but still close –walking distance- to the city. When we arrived the host gave us a map and some helpful tips of what to do with the rest of the afternoon. The rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast is served on the beautiful terrace and everything you could possible want... More

We can highly recommend this comfortable guest house with amazing views over Knysna and The Heads. We were warmly welcomed by Marthe who recommended a wonderful restaurant, The Anchorage, where she and her husband had eaten the evening before. We ate there the 3 nights we were in Knysna. Marthe and her husband Peter, provided delicious breakfasts, beautifully served on... More
