This place was totally perfect! Nestled into the hills above the bay with beautiful views and close walking distance into the downtown. The hosts were incredible, offering local knowledge and advice, great conversation, and delicious breakfasts! Loved it here!

We stayed for 2 nights and the place was quaint with old school decor which I loved, downside was no air con but view from room was beautiful and Mart was very helpful with what we should do in the local area. About 20min walk downhill to the waterfront with lots of places to eat.

We only stayed one night in this guest house but we wish we could have extended our stay. The view from the room and from the main dining room is absolutely stunning, overlooking the lagoon. The room was spotless and the bed comfortable. I wrongly booked a double room online instead of twin beds and the owners kindly asked another... More

Very quick visit, but lovely views, comfortable and very clean room and bathroom, good breakfast and friendly hosts ticked the boxes. The nightcap complimentary sherry is a nice touch. The parking area was a bit too full.

This was my second year at the Knysna Oyster festival and also the second year that I have stayed at the Guinea Fowl lodge. What makes me go back to Guinea Fowl every time ????? Hospitality is the one of the best you will find, mouth watering breakfasts, the rooms are very cosy and spacious, close to the Knysna mall... More

Nice room, great view, great bed, very good breakfast. Easy access to the CBD, restaurants etc. Quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We found this the lodge easily because of the name it stood out.

You may think I am biased - maybe I am, but this was a very special stay for me. You see, I started Guinea Fowl Lodge almost 20 years ago! So it was so good to see the changes and improvements made by the previous and current owners. Pete and Mart have continued (and improved!) on the theme that I... More

A nice cosy B&B in the centre of Knysna with a magnificent view of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads. Mart and Peter the owners made us feel very welcome. The room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Breakfast served on the veranda was most enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again.
