We had a lovely stay, albeit short, at Lavender Hill. The room was very well equipped and clean, and Edith and Cecil were delightful hosts. The breakfast was exceptionally good and we felt very welcome. The futon was a little uncomfortable for the kids, but otherwise all was excellent.

I stayed at Lavender Hill 9 days in December, and it was great. Cecile and Edith are doing a great job, great breakfast. And the rooms are excellent value. Next time I was in Knysna with the kids, I chose Lavender Hill again. This is the best review, isn't it ? Another room, suitable for 3 persons, again everything perfect.... More

During our South Africa trip, we stayed there for three nights. Initially, we planned to stay only for one night, but we have then extended our stay because it is such a wonderful Guest House. Edith and Cecil are very warm and nice. The rooms are great and the breakfast left nothing to be desired. So 100% recommended. Dear Edith... More

Stayed two nights here with Edith and Cecil as hosts. GREAT people and a great spot that they've got! Just add a pool and we are all sorted! Comfy clean rooms with lovely views and a small balcony (stayed in room 3) with views of the golf course and sections of Knysna. Will definitely be back.

Lets start by saying this is a lovely run guest house with friendly owners, I would stay there again but it was a tad magnolia so would probably not recommend it for a romantic trip (which we were on). Perfect for a business trip. The breakfast was lovely and the service was fantastic - just the plain Jane decor that... More

Cecil and Edith have mastered the art of running a B&B! They have every detail covered and go out of their way to provide for their guests a warm, clean and inviting environment! The food is excellent, the rooms are very comfortable and Cecil and Edith's hospitality is wonderful!

My stay at Lavender Hill couldn't have been better. Edith and Cecil were great hosts and made my first trip to Knysna unforgettable. Food was great and accommodations were clean and comfortable. All around great experience.

This was our second visit to Lavender Hill and we enjoyed it all over again. Edith and Cecil are gems and work hard to make sure your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. We stayed in one of the upstairs front rooms with our, now thirteen year old, son. There was plenty of room for all three of us and the... More

Edith and Ceil made our group feel at home and made a great week even better. The breakfast each morning was terrific. The housekeeping was great with clean rooms everyday. I would highly recommend that you include Lavender Hill as part of your Knynsa experience.
