We stayed in the self-catering cottage consisting of 2 bedrooms en suite with a combined lounge and kitchen. It is situated on the first floor behind the main building and is very comfortable. The guest house is located close to Leisure Island. Away from the hustle and bustle and traffic of the main town. But easily accessible. On the first...

Very pretty housing, Karin (the landlord) has created every room with its personal style. Most unique breakfast in South Africa directly prepared by Karin. If you ask, you can hear true stories that compete with "Out of Africa" (the famous movie with Meryl Streep, Robert Redford). We wouldn't go elsewhere if we are around ever again.

The room was very comfortable. The view was very nice. The location was very quiet. The owner Karen provided an excellent breakfast. She also gave me tips on places in Knysna that were worth visiting.

Spend a special weekend with my mom in Knysna. We highly recommend Lavender Hill Guest House. Accommodation was excellent and Karen's breakfasts were "yummy". The bedroom and shower was spotless. The gardens were also very pleasant and well kept. Thanks and hope to visit again soon.

What a relaxing stay. The room we booked was very light and airy and clean. Karen was so welcoming too. Great breakfasts in a comfortable setting. Extremely good service in a calm and organised way. It was easy enough to find and a good place to stay for visiting the area.

Our family group of 10, on a road trip to Cape Town, was easily accommodated by Karen at her beautifully appointed Guest House. Breakfast was abundant, delicious and prepared by Karen herself. Location is great - with restaurants close by. As recommended by Karen, we had a delicious dinner nearby at the Heads. Nothing was too much trouble for our...
