Very nice location. Have planned to stay one night extended to four nights. Beautiful garden, nice room, comfortable bed. Friendly and informative management. Breakfast was okay but could have little bit more variations.

Our room was actually a little suite set in the garden. We had a veranda for outside relaxing and dining. The owner was extremely helpful and all the staff were friendly. our only criticism is that breakfast was only continental and was a little skimpy.

Located a drive away from the centre of Knysna, this guest house offers a lovely garden and reasonably comfortable accommodation with friendly staff and a memorable braai by the swimming pool. An honesty bar is available.
