“A really awesome holiday experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

Wonderful clean tasteful accommodation with glorious views. The unit is beautifully furnished with a private deck and ample space. We were warmly received when we arrived and showed to an immaculate unit. We were afforded total privacy while we were there and not disturbed at all. The garden is pretty and the pool very inviting. Forget me knot has the best views in Knysna and is very conveniently situated. Also extremely well priced.

We will return

Knysna and its surrounding areas offer a wealth of attractions, from beautiful beaches to outstanding golf courses, thick forest, wildlife, adventure activities of all kinds, as well as excellent restaurants.
Forget-Me-Not is a very comfortable, well appointed guest house situated close to the Lagoon, with beautiful views and warm, welcoming hosts, Mary and Derek. Outstanding value!!

We only stayed for one night, but we would definitely recommend it to everyone.
Next time we will stay longer.
What a stunning view over the harbour.

Forget-me-Not is everything one looks for in a B&B; a warm friendly greeting; clean, comfortable accommodation that feels like home; and Mary and Derek readily ensure you are quickly orientated to Knysna, so that you can get the most from your stay. The ability to come and go as you please in the self contained, self catering units makes for a quiet, relaxed home. Although when we chose to have breakfast, that was also superb. Centrally situated, Forget-me-Not gives easy access to all places of interest. These were the key factors that made it easy for us to have a most memorable stay at Knysna. Thanks Mary and Derek for your caring, we will certainly be back.

Our hosts, Derek and Mary, were attentive and knowledgable about Knysna. They made us feel so welcome and gave great advice on activities in the area. We had children of a variety of ages with us, and yet we found there was something for everyone: boat trips, picnics, hikes with stunning views, restaurants and farmers' markets. Although we were there in winter the climate was mild and being outdoors was marvellous. Knysna is such a beautiful part of South Africa - I would recommend it to anyone. We will be back, this time for a longer stay. We want to spend more time exploring the forests, the beaches and all the tempting eateries. Thanks again Mary and Derek for making our stay so special.

The rooms were extremely comfortable and well furnished.

The breakfasts were elegantly served on a beautiful deck overlooking the magnificent view of the Knysna Heads.

Our hosts were warm, friendly and very helpful.

Spending a few days staying at Forget-Me-Not in Knysna after a hectic school year in Dubai is the perfect antidote to living and working in a frantic city. Being able to sit on the deck in the warm winter sun and watch the waters for the Knysna lagoon ebb and flow was all the therapy I needed. The Nest (the self-catering unit I stayed in) was beautifully furnished, cozy and everything I could possibly need was supplied. I loved every moment.
