We stayed in beautiful and spacious room of 4 with plenty entertainment for our kids. Situated near every major tourist attractions in Knysna. The property is clean and well taken care of with additional blankets and heating system for the cold winter.

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.

This is a lovely little guest house situated about half way on the way to the Knysna Heads. The hostess / owner is extremely hands on and it is one of those great "home from home" places. I will definitely go back (especially for the sublime breakfast!) and can't wait for my next trip to Knysna. Hats off to Karen... More
