I loved the view we had from our room, it was !!! And you could hear the sea, but it was not on the level that one could not sleep. The room is beautifully decorated and the bathroom is large and also beautiful. The breakfast was enjoyable.

When around Knysna, this is probably one of the best places to stay! Beautiful location, room overviewing the ocean, just a couple of hundred metres away from a beautiful beach. Nice breakfast and good service!

We enjoyed our 3-night stay at Brenton on Sea, feels like a condo or beach apartment really, more than a hotel. What makes it especially nice (in addition to spectacular views) is the service.
