On our roundtrip in South Africa we visited Knysna and stayed in the wonderful Standards Guest Lodge. Patrick welcomed us and showed us our amazing chalet... Beautifully decorated with a lot of atmosphere. The fireplace was a nice bonus since the evenings in winter can be quite cold... The garden is also beautiful and the little shop gives you the...

We stayed in the lodge, apart from the central building. It was great, a lot of space, nice balcony, fire place (wood for free). The breakfast is perfect, they pay a lot of attention to this. The lodge was cleaned dayly. The lady of the reception was very helpful to suggest places to visit.

Stannards Guest Lodge is an awesome place to stay. We had a great time there and will recommend it to friends and family. The Family unit is spacious with enough room. The fire place in the lounge area is an absolute winner for the winter months. My only constructive comments would be around the self catering facilities - the cutlery... More

Highly recommended. A quiet guesthouse with fantastic hosts. Patrick and Helene are wonderful and we had one of the best breakfasts. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. You are made to feel at home. Close to golf clubs, beaches, walks in the forest and some of the best restaurants.We will definitely be back.

Nice B&B at tranquile location with friendly and hospitable owners who gave us a lot of suggestions of places to eat and drink. Rooms are clean, breakfast was good and bar (self service) was opened all day for a cold beer. You can even buy real South African souvenirs made by the owner.
