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.

Thanks to the great people and best night to have a braai which was excellent to be introduced to South Africa could not ask for better. The things that are avaible to do are numerous while riding a motorbike in the area had some great views and places to stop and photograph allowed many location to go to.

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

I stayed 4 nights in a pleasantly decorated room, with lovely verandah. I had a comfortable bed, excellent breakfasts. My individual needs were attended to kindly and with care. Mart and Piet are fabulous hosts and the area is quiet but within easy walking distance to the town centre. A lovely stay!
