This is a quiet and peaceful location, about 5 miles outside Knysna. A little chilly and isolated in the winter, though. Our cottage (3 bedrooms) was spacious, but some rooms were better than others - the downstairs bedroom was cold and gloomy.
Breakfast was good, plenty of choice and excellent service from the "super" Jeffrey. It was hard to believe the Bell Inn was part of the same establishment because here the food was poor and service hopelessly slow and incompetent. After one dinner there we drove to Knysna every other evening to eat.
