We really enjoyed our three nights at Hamilton Manor. The host, Fran, is lovely and very keen to make sure guests enjoy all that Knysna has to offer. Rooms are well presented and comfortable, breakfast very good, and super views across the lagoon to Knysna Heads.

Fran was very welcoming,explaining all the features and giving us all the space we needed. The room with kitchenette is tastefully decorated and very clean. The view from the small garden accessible by the room is great. Fran took special care in making sure breakfast was of our liking. Her doggy is very friendly.

Owner went out of her way to make me a very late breakfast after a cycle race. There is good security for the property. The room was well decorated and had an amazing view of the Knysna lagoon. I will definitely stay there again.

Very hospitable, with incredibly picturesque views of the Kynsna lagoon. Fran our host is an avid gardener with a keen interest in orchids which are on display around the house. Some herbs from the garden added flavour to a delightful breakfast. We hope to stay again when we return to South Africa.

We stayed at Hamilton Manor for one night. The landlady is very warm and welcoming. The room was very comfortable with a very nice view of the lagoon and town. There were plates, bowls and cutleries provided in case you wanted to make something small to eat, such as breakfast cereals in the morning. This was very handy. Overall a... More
