We spent 5 very happy nights at Brenton Hill in August 2014. We were two couples, a baby and a granny and each every one of us enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in Weavers Nest where each (large) room has its own bathroom. There is one inter-leading room which would be suitable for parents and children. It was like staying at... More

This venue was the perfect family self catering spot in Knysna. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect as it is outside the Knysna but close enough to visit all the attractions. We even had a great Easter egg hunt with all the community on Easter Sunday. The view was amazing. The room was large with... More

The accomodation was all we could hope for with most comfortable beds and excellent kitchen facilities. The laundry service was good and dependable. It is wonderfully quiet with some lovely birds. We were treated at all times with courtesy, care and constant assurance of our hosts' help with any queries. The position is peerless, looking down on the most beautiful... More

We spent two nights here in March. Accommodation is spacious and well-equipped. The views from the bedrooms and from the gardens & verandah are simply stunning. The unit is in a secluded location two thirds way up a hill that overlooks the Knysna lagoon, with the mountains behind that. It is a ten minute drive from Knysna, easy to find,... More

I spoke with Catriona for the first time when calling for directions to Brenton Hill from the National Road after a tiring four hour drive.

First impressions weren't bad, the location seemed nice and the views were pretty enough, but we soon realised that Brenton Hill was far from idyllic. The accommodation was fairly basic and in desperate need of updating. There was a small communal pool on the owners property, but as the owners and their children were always in it, we didn't feel...
