“Wonderful place with nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We had a very nice stay in this comfortable guesthouse. The owners were very friendly. It is only a few minutes drive to the Knysna waterfront, where there are plenty of good restaurants.
From the waterfront we made a beatuful boottrip by catamaran over the lagune and on to the sea.

Just outside the town but with a car its an excellent location for the Knysna Heads and the Waterfront. Its a lovely place with a nice garden and a great pool - big enough to do an exercise lap. Our room was large with its own verandah. Lots of attention to detail with an essentials box provided - mosquito repellents, torch, hairdryer, candles. Huge bathroom with double shower which was fun. Breakfast was excellent with the option of eating outdoors or indoors. Our hosts were very friendly and provided us with useful information on the area and good recommendations to eat out.

We stayed at the Knysna Country House for 5 nights in January 2013. Ypie, Erik and Kate couldn't have been more lovely to us. Very friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home instantly. They even have Tara the black lab and two little dogs which we absolutely loved as were missing our furry friend!
We stayed in the blue standard room, which was very comfortable for our 5 night stay.
Ypie and Erik were more than happy to book good places to eat for us and Erik even took my hubby for a round of golf which he loved!
Thank you for a lovely stay, we would highly recommend x

A party of 6 traveling with daughter and her family, we stayed in the pool side bungalow, and they in the main building accommodation was good in both cases, and the proprietors extremely helpful. Pool was a good size for the size of the hotel, and breakfast all you could ask for. highly recommended place to stay

Room Tip: The bungalow is African style stand alone next to the pool, and adds an alternative to the normal ty...

Stayed 2 nights. It is off the beaten track so you need a car to get anywhere, although we did get a taxi down to the waterfront and back. Lovely views from the patio overlooking the swimming pool. Our room was fine although the bathroom was tiny . We could hear breakfast being prepared as we were very close to the dining room. Breakfast itself was very nice, especially the fruit salad ! The hosts were lovely and keen to make sure you were happy. 1 day we wanted to go to the beach so they gave us an umbrella, body board, and 2 chairs for the beach . That's service !

We recently stayed at the Knysna Country House, unfortunately just for 1 night - not long enough! Our bedroom was really comfortable, and the outdoor pool/seating area is fab and really spacious. Knysna was one of the most beautiful places we visited on our trip to South Africa and this guesthouse was the icing on the cake. The owners were so friendly and helpful and made us feel incredibly welcome - in addition their breakfasts are fantastic. We would definitely book to stay here again in the future!
