We rented a 3 bedroom house. It is very nicely situated on the tip of a cliff facing the ocean. It is however a bit tired and some "refreshing" of furniture and carpets would be needed! Very nice and helpful staff!!

We walked in without a booking. Graciously received and felt immediately welcomed. Our room would be great for a family....two sleeping areas. We had a balcony with table and chairs....a great bathroom with tub and large shower. TV ...struggling wifi. And a kitchenette area...fridge , kettle, microwave,sink and dishes. We had a garage space for the car. The area set... More

I stayed at Brenton on Rocks with three friends in January and loved it. Service was spectacular, view was spectacular and the rooms were fantastic. Really enjoyed our stay and had a great time sitting with a few drinks on the deck chairs overlooking the ocean. Thanks

Spending the night at Brenton on Rocks was one of those flawless experiences where everything just worked out without a hitch. The young chap in reception was friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was spacious and spotless. Our room unfortunately had no sea view as it was a last minute booking but this did not detract from the amazing views... More

The initial impression of Brenton on Rocks is great: the view is absolutely breathtaking, the rooms are spacious, modern and well furnished, however, the service and friendliness of the receptionist is a completely different story. Upon arrival at Brenton on Rocks we asked whether there is a braai area available, the initial response was : "well as long as you... More

We spent our honeymoon in Brenton on Rocks in October. Firstly, we were welcomed with the honeymoon pamper package consisting of sparkling wine, Lindt chocolates, hot chocolate sticks with marshmallows, candles, massage oils and bubble bath... beautiful. The view is amazing, we were staying in the family room with a balcony overlooking the small private beach ahead. Room was spacious,... More

As with all the over reviewers, we were blown away by the ocean view from our room and the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks was like a lullaby. The rooms are very specious and the bathroom is really big with a lovely corner bath and a shower. it is a bit of a distance to restaurants and... More

We ( 3 travelers) stayed at this lovely place during our Garden Route trip. Very comfortable with a killer view! Except with some hot water issues the first night ( which was sorted out in 45 min by very helpful staff) we had a wonderful stay! Will definitely recommend Brenton-On-Rocks!!

Stayed here during my road trip along the Garden Route and while it may be expensive if you're on a strict budget this place is well worth the extra money. It may be a bit of a drive from Knysna but it's location on the cliffs along the ocean make the amazing ocean side views well worth the distance and... More

I love this place. We had breakfast overlooking the sea while a super pod of dolphins swam by. We stayed in one of the houses -a stylish home away from home with every convenience. There were also guest rooms but we opted for the spacious family sized unit. Close to all the major attractions in Knysna. Really friendly and helpful... More
