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

All the rooms had magnificent views (except one bedroom). There was a balcony on... More

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

We stayed here with friends for two nights last November. We had the smaller rooms at the back of the house, which are not as spacious as the front room, but still a decent size. The balcony on the side offers a good view, but the view from the front of the house is simply amazing as it is set... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Brenton on Rocks, but could quite easily have stayed longer! We had a room on the upper floor with a stunning balcony overlooking the sea. It was just perfect. The room is big enough for 2 adults, with a seperate lounge area and TV, a great bathroom and a open, bright, spaceous bedroom. It... More

The guest house is above average. Rooms are spacious but not the type you would want to spend lots of time in. Kitchen is rather small, it's semi self catering. Rooms and bathroom could be cleaner. We reported dirty linen and this was changed for us. Common areas were great to use- my husband and I had our own little... More
