“Perfect holiday stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Our stay at Amber Guest Lodge was definitely one of the highlights during our trip of South Africa. The house is situated in a quiet area, close to two golf courses. Only 10 minutes drive into Knysna town center. Rooms are large with a consistently high quality. Good breakfast and friendly hosts who will share tips and information with you. We would gladly return if we get the chance.
Best regards, Mats, Anne-Marie and the girls from Sweden

Six of us stayed at Amber for 3 nights and the location was wonderful, with views to match. The rooms were modern, well decorated and very clean. Janet and Derek were most welcoming hosts, with a cup of tea on arrival, bottle of wine in the fridge in our rooms and then by providing some great recommends for eating, making our bookings and sorting the transport for us. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh, eaten on the patio overlooking the lagoon, what more can you want. Golfed at Simola and Pezula, also booked through Janet and Derek, great courses, not far from Amber and a must see for any golfers. Excellent and would return if we visit Knysna again in the future.

We stayed at Amber Guest Lodge as a last-minute stopover during a busy December. They were so kind as they only had a large suite left, but let us have it for the price we would have paid for just us two.
We were offered tea and coffee immediately as we arrived after our long trip and given awesome recommendations on where to go and what to do during our stay.

The suite we stayed in was superb - luxurious, spotless, comfortable and peacefully quiet.

The breakfast, which we had on the patio with a beautiful view of the lagoon and more, was divine and we left feeling rested and very full!

Room Tip: they all seem perfect to me.

We really enjoyed our short stay at Amber Guest Lodge. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived - with a much needed pot of tea! The room was very stylish, clean and comfy. There are DVDs available to borrow and watch in your room. Breakfast was delicious. We were particularly grateful when Janet phoned us very quickly after we had left to inform us we had left our phone charger - thank you Janet!

We had a fantastic stay at Amber Guest Lodge. The view was amazing and the rooms really comfortable and with everything we needed.
Janet and Derek were really helpful, gave us lots of suggestions around Knysna and even gave us a warm welcome with a bottle of South African wine :)
The area is quiet and easy to get to ...we will definitely recommend this place to our Argentinian friends!
