We stopped for 3 nights at Candlewood, and the property is absolutely lovely. Beautiful garden, nice location close to all the restaurants, and the rooms were spotlessly clean. Joyce accommodated our schedules the last day by serving us breakfast earlier. Graham and Joyce both gave us excellent tips on local restaurants and attractions, and also how to visit the Addo...

We booked to stay at Candlewood at the start of a 2 week vacation in South Africa. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Graham - which certainly set the tone for the rest of the week. Both Joyce and Graham were the perfect and most delightful hosts and really made us feel at home. The room was very clean... More

We spent 3 nights at Candlewood and had a first floor suite with a balcony which looked south towards the Lagoon. A great place, spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was served either on the terrace, where we were sometimes overlooked by the local vervet monkeys, or in the conservatory - both were equally excellent as was the food. Graham... More

Air of luxury, good room. Very helpful owners. Safe, quiet location with great view of lagoon from balcony. Away from the coach parties in the centre of Knysna. We stayed for one night but there is lots to do around Knysna, and Candlewood Lodge would be great for a longer stay as well.

Spotless. Very comfortable. Beautiful linen and bone china with views to die for what else could one want! Very good value, excellent breakfast, lovely pool - the whole place is far better than a lot of 5 star hotels I have visited. Joyce and Graham, the owners are charming, genuine people and most helpful, I hope to return there.

The lodge sits on the hillside with view over the bay of Knysna. We had a balcony which made use of that very well. The breakfast had good choice and was freshly prepared. The host is very welcoming and helpful with any advice needed. The air-con in the room kept us nicely cool, the beds were comfy and the rooms... More
