Nice stay in an historic part of town. Close to the Main Street and shopping mall, but far away from the noise. Within walking distance of the Knysna Waterfront. Safe and secure with secure parking away from the street.

If you are with guests, you may join them for breakfast at a cost to yourselves. Unfortunately we are not a restaurant.
