I had a lovely stay at the Old Trading Post in Lara's room in July 2013. I was in the area to run the Knysna half marathon and spent three nights at this lovely guest house. On the morning of the marathon the owner Mike even got up before 05:00 for breakfast! The room was warm, the bed good and the home made breakfast was great each day. The location is tranquil and just what one needs to get away from busy city life. Mike and Harja even helped with excellent recommendations for dinner (and also how to get there and back avoiding the stop-go on the N2).
