We walked into Azure House but they were full that day. The host Sydne recommended a vacation rental apartment at Knysna Quay. Excellent place with huge balcony, bbq pit and comfortable rooms. Sydne was very helful and quick to attend to all our needs.
Did not experience with Azure House but the host Sydne deserves commendation.

Room Tip: Try their vacation rental apartment. Very convenient and near Knysna Quay.

We stayed at Azure during Jan 2012. We would describe our stay as very average. It says that the guest house is four star but should really be three star. The room we stayed in was large and spacious but the interior needs to be updated. The bedroom had a small en suite but soon became damp as the bathroom didnt have suficient ventilation. This lead to us both having the sniffles for the two nights! The positioning was good, a short drive to the waterfront and was well sign posted.The car park was small and had their been more people staying i think we would have been parked in. We were a little disapointed with the breakfast served. i.e breakfast for two was served on one plate and was minimal at best. The pool was small and not very appealling albeit not the best weather but i still wouldnt go in a pool i couldnt see the bottom of and didnt think was too clean.

I would say that Azure is average and would suit people looking for a self accomodation option close to the town centre, but the rates should command a better standard of accomodation.

We arrived in Knysna on 24 December 2011 with no accommodation lined-up, after phoning some of the guesthouses (listed on Trip Advisor) we came across Azure who had accommodation available for the 2 nights we requested (in on the 24th and out on the 26th). Apparently she had just had a cancellation. Lucky us we thought.

The guesthouse was incredibly noisy with neighbours and cars in and out constantly. Unfortunately the guesthouse is too small for the number of rooms and parking spots they have crammed in there. If you prefer a little privacy and quiet.... don't go there.

Worst of it all was we were called at 3:30am on Christmas morning by our security company informing us we had been robbed at home, we jumped in the car and at 5am I sms'd the woman in charge at Azure to apologise and explain we had had to make our way back to JHB. I was then informed that if she could not get somebody else to take the room that we would still be charged for that evening. I never heard back from her but we did get a bill of nearly R1500 put through on our credit card for one very noisy evenings accommodation.

Not worth it.

The Accomandations were very clean and had a very nice arrangement.
Amazing view over the bay.
The service was very good and fiendly.
The Guest House is not far from the waterfont, where a lot of good restaurants are.
The only negativ point was the breakfast.

We would allways stay here again.

We checked in and were very surprised at what we got. The cottage is on the ground floor, with it's own patio, outdoor table where we ate breakfast each day that was brought to us each morning by the staff! It was a real treat. The cottage itself, is split into 2 areas, the front was a kitchenette and seating area with wooden flooring. Then up one step into the bedroom area with a TV etc and the back was a small bathroom with shower. Everything we needed was there and a very big spa was just around the corner so we ate in to enjoy the room and the views. The view from our place was great and made for a great place to just chill, relax and take it all in. Can't fault the place really, there was even a little BBQ that suited me and my friend for braai'ing perfectly!

Hotel is cosy with few rooms. The room given to us was fantastic balcony view of Knysna sea view. The breakfast we had in the morning in the balcony was something we will remember all our life as it was lovely December morning and view of the Knysna sea was breath taking....simply unforgettable. Hotel is nicely located at some height for great view. Inside the room are very cosy and are well kept. Staff are very friendly too. Homely feeling.

During our two week stay in South Africa this was probably the best 3 star bed and breakfast place we stayed at. Even the it rained all day (it being June!) we could enjoy the view and the space which was clean (very) and well heated (not something one can take granted for in South Africa). Most places in Knysna would probably boast some view (it being located around spacious bay and river delta), but this had the added advantage of being close to the main street as well as the waterfront.
