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

Stayed here for 3 nts. Unfortunately the weather let us down but we enjoyed it nonetheless. What makes this hotel is the absolutely stunning reviews. Sleeping to the sound of the ocean crashing right alongside you is fantastic. We also loved the braai room where we cooked on one of the evenings. It is in a very quiet location, a... More

Stayed in a Sea View Suite (Similar to Honeymoon suite just that the bath shape differs and there is an extra sitting area). The view from the balcony is magnificent and I found myself just staring out at the sea and sunset. Makes for a cosy place for eating meals if there is not too much wind. There is a... More

Incredible place, good quality building, excellent service and an amazing sea view. Good located: far enough from the town but reasonable distance if you need to do some shopping. Restaurant near by. Well decorated rooms and garage to park your car. Works us a Bed and breakfast place but looks like hotel

It takes a bit of time to locate this place, but once you find it, you realize you that it was worth the effort. The guest-house style hotel has rooms with balconies facing the lagoon. It makes for a stunning setting, specially when all the balconies have a charming wrought-iron table and chairs. Perfect place for a cup of tea... More
