Besides the beautiful rooms and stunning views at Double Dutch B&B, nothing is to much trouble for Nathalie and Kate. When one of us became seriously ill during our planned one night stay and we urgently had to go to hospital in the middle of the night, Nathalie and Kate were there to help us with everything. They contacted our... More

The guesthouse is beautiful and has a stunning view and is conveniently located just off the main road. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have underfloor heating. Most rooms have... More

We stayed at Double Dutch for two nights at the start of our trip. Arriving from the UK after long flights, this was an excellent choice as the B&B was quiet but within walking distance of town. The hosts were friendly, helpful and provided a great breakfast and advice about what to see and do. They have clearly invested much... More

We stayed at Double Dutch for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The breakfast and the rooms are perfect, you have great views on the Lagoon, the garden is amazing and Kate and Nathalie are the best hosts one can think of! I can highly recommend this accommodation and I will for sure go there again.

We stayed at Double Dutch for one night on our rapid trip around part of the Garden Route, but as soon as we laid eyes on the inn (there were curves everywhere--doorways, pathways, the deck--I loved it) and the views over Knysna we wished we could stay for longer! The accommodation was wonderful, the setting was perfect, Kate and Nathalie... More

We stayed in the Double Dutch for 2 nights. to illustrate how we liked the place I'll say this: Initially, it was just for a one night, but because we loved it so much we decided to go all the way back from storms river to knysna (about 2 hour drive) just to relax at the Double Dutch....yes it's that...
