My husband and I really enjoyed the clean, modern room and Janet's welcome! It's very quiet and we slept incredibly well. There are good restaurants and lots to see and do a 10-minute drive away. Breakfast is delicious.

An amazing guest house, such lovely hospitality from the owner Janet, always checking and ever so helpful with anything you need or need to know. Our accommodation was beautiful , clean and fresh everyday for our 2 night stay. The breakfast out on the pool deck was always lovely and freshly prepared by the owner himself. Highly recommended.

The rooms were spacious and as my non golfing wife joined me, we opted for the main suite - Suite 5. This room... More

After a long trip, i received a warm, homely welcome from Janet. Facilities were excellent, in terms of cleanliness, food, assistance, etc. I will certainly be staying at Amber Guest Lodge again for the 2017 Knysna Celtic Festival! Thanks Janet. You are a gem

We had friends staying around the corner and we're looking for a place for two nights. All OK and clean. They had an delighted stay and would return anytime back. Safe parking given and not the last time we use Amber Lodge.
