The hotel is in a wonderful location where lagoon on which Knysna is situated meets the sea. We enjoyed our stay - lovely views, spacious room, good breakfasts and friendly staff. A bonus was the Italian restaurant that was a two minute walk away that does good evening meals.

Paddy was extremely friendly but not too intrusive. The views were to die for and the breakfast selection was great too!! The room was huge with a jacuzzi style bath. I can highly recommend it! Its right next to the Heads' restaurants with amazing views. It's a great homepage to explore the region from.

We had a really good experience at Augusta Bay. The views of the Knysna Heads and Lagoon are amazing. Our room was very spacious and as it was raining we spent time reading and looking out at the beautiful mountains / lagoon. The breakfast was also very good. Will definitely recommend and should we have the opportunity, will most certainly... More

I got married in April 2016 and our honey moon destination was in Augusta Bay on the heads of Knysna. I must say that Paddy was very welcoming and flexible towards us. Not only did he give us the best room with the best view, he also accommodated us with champagne on our first night and amazing breakfasts every morning.... More

A wonderful guest house. A small bar for an evening drink, very nice pool. This guest house is extremely well cared for and the owner is excellent and aims to please in every way to make your experience perfect. One of the best guest houses we have ever stayed at. Wish we could have stayed longer

A short stop over while travelling became too short. Once we arrived we wish we had more time to stay here. A nice little bar for an evening drink and a beautiful pool to either lay or sit beside. The owner is over the top to accommodate you to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I restaurants with an... More

We had a very enjoyable stay in Knysna and in particular were delighted with this guesthouse. It is perfectly situated at Knysna heads, which boasts both stunning views and two great restaurants within 2 minutes walk. The room we stayed in was large and nicely decorated, and the daily breakfast included both a continental breakfast buffet as well as a... More

If you like Blues, this is the place for you. Paddy who runs the place has music playing in the background most of the time. Fantastic hospitality and so helpful. Breakfasts are a treat, you can choose between English, German, French, Dutch and Continental in addition to a generous buffet loaded with fruit. The views are stunning, my room was... More
