Stay at Pumula for 2 nights and we found the B&B is very nice, confortable rooms, big garden and a BBQ area and nice pool area. Breakfast is varied and if you want your hosts will prepadred freshly cooked breakfast. The BBQ area is a very convinient and we cooked our own Christmas dinner and enjoyed the evening in the quiet, beatuiful setting.
Our hosts have been helpfull with suggestions of what to do. Great place to stay if you visit Knysna.

Stayed at the Pumula Lodge over Christmas for a couple of nights. The Lodge itself is in a quiet area of Knysna and you would certainly need a car to get to the town center. The rooms are a bit small but they have a fantastic balcony over the garden and the pool area.The rooms had no AC but you can request a fan if it get too warm.Breakfast was served on the first floor and the choice was a very good one and you are always asked if you would like a cooked breakfast. The pool and BBQ area are a plus in the evenings if you would like to cook yourself and relax with some South African wine. The hosts were always very helpful and provided all information needed.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Rentia and her husband are very hospitable and really made us feel very welcome and at home. Absolutely loved the location and very quiet and tranquil surroundings.

Lovely accommodation, beautiful garden and view looking over the golf course. We were greeted upon arrival as welcome guests, warm, friendly and helpful. Our room was tastefully decorated, loved the balcony, very comfortable, quiet. Breakfast was artfully arranged and was delicious. We would rate our overall experience, Super!! We would certainly recommend Pumula Lodge to our friends.

Pumula is the perfect retreat away from the hubbub of the rest of Knysna (yes, it is a busy little town!). Rensia was the perfect host, informative without being intrusive. A pity our stay was so short!
