Owner Fran and her crew is very supportive and made our stay wonderful. Nothing we could wish more during our too short stay. The area is beautiful and the view over the harbour is magnificent. It is a nice and light walk to the harbour. When possible we will surely come back.

We stayed at Hamilton for two nights. We were welcomed by Fran, the owner, at arrival. Very helpful and friendly. We were a group of 9 retirement ladies and did liked the spacious rooms. The views from each room are to the lagoons. Wonderful views from the top and only 1 km away from the waterfront. The breakfasts were great....

This a lovely property with nice rooms and a beautiful view. The room was very good value for money and the host was friendly and informative. The thing that let it down was the fact that housekeeping moved all of the items we had on tables etc and put them away in various draws, this was irritating as they should...

You have a wonderful view to the lagoon of Knysna. The room was perfect and very clean. Fran is very kind and has a lot of good recommendations. The breakfast is very good and offers a variety of cheese and cold meats. A perfect place to stay in Knysna!

Nice place on the hill with views of the lagoon. Our suite was nice and clean and had the most comfortable bed! Secure car park, great welcome from Fran, and our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast is extra if you want it, but we went to East Head Cafe.

When checking out, we were asked by the Werner, the host, to settle the bill for the breakfast. As we said we booked and paid already for breakfast (we had booked with Nightsbridge) and presented our receipt which said "Bed&Breakfast", he told us it only means the "type of accomodation". Also the sum we had paid in advance didn't convince...

Hamilton-Manor, Owner at Hamilton Manor, responded to this review

Hi Merino I am deeply sorry for the unfortunate incident you had when you checked out. Werner should have made sure of his facts before insisting on payment. He is no longer employed by me but I cannot apologize enough for this. I was unaware of this until I read your review. Please allow me to make this up to...

We had a great time at Hamilton Manor. Werner went "over and above" to ensure everything went well. Staff rearranged furniture to allow more space - location is excellent and views are amazing. Taxi was arranged for evening outing and assistance offered in the evening - brilliant

So glad we booked Hamilton Manor as our base to visit the many places in and around Knysna. As soon as we arrived we were offered a drink which was served on the terrace. I had seen photos of the view over the lagoon but they do not do it justice. What a beautiful view! We were then taken to...

The view is wonderful and the rooms divine. We were treated so well by General Manager, Werne, we felt like one of the family! The breakfast is also recommended. Our only regret is that we stayed only one night.

Everything was more than perfect: lovely manager Werner, breakfast, rooms, view. When we arrived we immediately regretted not staying longer. The only small thing that bugged us was the loud fridge in the room. It also felt very safe there which is important in South Africa. According to the manager, they have never had an issue with crime, only with...
