We spent 3 nights in this place. We appreciated the chalet, kitchen full equiped, comfortable . 2 min from the beautiful Brenton-On-Sea beach by walk. But, there were some "but" : the wifi is very expensive, non included and slow. No table to eat close to the barbecue, outside, in front of the chalet : you have to go to... More

Had high expectations given other reviews and the website, but left underwhelmed. There is a large construction project to build a new lodge in front of the cottages, partially obstructing the view and adding a fair amount of noise to what would otherwise be a serene location. We stayed in a cabin, which had a very limited kitchenette. We were... More

My wife and I decided to spend our 1 year wedding anniversary at Brenton on sea. It is a really nice place, very close to the beach and a restaurant within walking distance which served food that was quite nice. It really captures the beauty of Knysna.

What a wonderful place. The cottages are self-catering and have everything you need from cooking utensils to bed linens and towels. There is a small kiosk on the grounds that sells staples and a restaurant where you can eat if you don’t feel like driving into Knysna. Most of the cottages have a sea view and we stayed in 2...

These are semi self-catering units on the cliff at Brenton in Knysna. The best stay of my trip, was such a pity we were here only one night, but the hotel was so accommodating and we stayed until check-out. Its a walk away to the most amazing beach, Brenton beach, with Buffalo bay in sight! Definitely going back

A nice, comfortable, clean stay. Reception was not that friendly upon arrival, but the room and the scenic view made it worth our while. A nice braai area located outside our Chalet, and the well equipped kitchen made it easy to provide meals and refreshments. The only downer was our neighbors, who had a new born, and unfortunately the rooms... More

Judging by our guidebooks, Brenton-on-Sea cottages could have been a lonely cluster of houses on a forelorn but pretty beach far from necessary infrastructure, possibly so far out, you could even feel threatened. The truth is: It's nothing like that! For my wife, it was the favourite place to stay in three weeks in South Africa. The reason: It has... More

Beautiful cabin, perfect for a short stay (3 nights). If you plan on staying longer i would definately recommend upgrading to a cottage as the cabin has very limited self atering ammenities. If you are more than 2 ppl you have to stay in a cottage as the cabins are very small, but perfect for an intimate weekend away or... More

We stayed in a cottage for 1 night. We got a free upgrade from a cabin to a cottage. The cottages are quite large and accommodate up to 6 people. Good cooking facilities, including personal 'braai', jacuzzi and separate shower in bathroom. Cottage even has an alarm system, which appeared a little bit overdone to me. Cottages are very close...

Brenton-on-sea chalets consist of two types - the simple units in a circular formation, and the two units which cater for larger families. We stayed in one of the larger units. There are two large units configured in the same way. Each house consists of a main house which sleeps six in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms, main-en-suite. The main... More
