it was such an amazing stay. Thanks Pete and Mart, it really felt like we were part of your family! We had the best breakfast each morning overlooking the whole Knysna town and estuary. the rooms are very clean and tidy. And the rest of the staff very helpful. I would come back to visit in a heartbeat!

This was my second year at the Knysna Oyster festival and also the second year that I have stayed at the Guinea Fowl lodge. What makes me go back to Guinea Fowl every time ????? Hospitality is the one of the best you will find, mouth watering breakfasts, the rooms are very cosy and spacious, close to the Knysna mall... More

Nice room, great view, great bed, very good breakfast. Easy access to the CBD, restaurants etc. Quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We found this the lodge easily because of the name it stood out.

You may think I am biased - maybe I am, but this was a very special stay for me. You see, I started Guinea Fowl Lodge almost 20 years ago! So it was so good to see the changes and improvements made by the previous and current owners. Pete and Mart have continued (and improved!) on the theme that I... More

A nice cosy B&B in the centre of Knysna with a magnificent view of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads. Mart and Peter the owners made us feel very welcome. The room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Breakfast served on the veranda was most enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again.

The accommodation was great. It felt like staying in a big beach house with all the beautiful views. The furnishings were good old world charm which gave it a homely traditional feel. The room was bright and airy with a fan, hairdryer and coffee/tee supplied.

Pete and Mart are excellent hosts at their old-style guest house. Our room (2) had lovely views from the balcony overlooking the lagoon. The rooms are in the traditional style of the old house but clean and well equipped. The only thing that may help would be thicker curtains for later lie-ins – not that it bothered us as we... More

Beautiful rooms, lovely, friendly hosts, comfortable beds, great breakfasts on stoep with amazing views of whole lagoon and heads! Tame fiscal shrike at breakfast, who enjoys cheese! Beautiful pool area surrounded with roses. Quiet and high up on hill, but still close to restaurants and shops. Very helpful advice from hosts about whats on and best and most appropriate places...
