The Alexander Boutique Suites
Ranked #3 of 129 Knysna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My partner and I stayed in the Alexander for 3 nights in the honeymoon suite. I have to say that it is one of the nicest places we have stayed in, the decor and ambiance are spot on and the views are simply stunning. The staff, and Wayne the wonderful owner, are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you are happy with everything (not that there would be much you could be unhappy with here). Being a bit of a clean freak I was also extremely impressed with how clean all the rooms are - first class in my opinion!.

There are some gorgeous beaches nearby too. Although we had an amazing decking area with hot tub, it was a bit too windy whilst we were there to make the most of it although I believe it gets less windy as of February.

Wayne's breakfast spread is also very impressive - highly recommend the cheese and tomatoe omelette which was cooked to perfection.

Alltogether a wonderful place!

We felt like at home from the first minutes we entered the Alexander Guest House. Breathtaking views, luxury interior with perfect attention to the smallest details, very cosy rooms, very stylish and tasty breakfast - all this made our stay unforgettable. Add free shuttle to Knysna downtown restaurants and a swim at Knysna heads and you have a perfect place to stay in Knysna.

Luxury at its best! We ended of our honeymoon at The Alexander and enjoyed every second. The staff was friendly and the service excellent. We enjoyed having tasty breakfast on our room´s private deck each morning before a splash in the jacuzzi, the view from there was magnificent! Thank you Wayne, Willie, Cedric and Memory, you guys are a great team.

Room Tip: We had the royal honeymoon suite, perfection!

The setting on The Heads is breathtaking and although the weather was atrocious the rooms were excellent which allowed us to enjoy our stay nonetheless. The staff were friendly and always gave us good recommendations. Will definitely stay again...

Thank you Wayne, Monica, Willie, Memory and all the staff for spoiling us on our 25th anniversary! With your help we've created memories that will last a lifetime! Every little detail, your gift of bubbly and a snack basket, the beautiful and elegant surroundings - what a privilege and pleasure! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We ended of our honeymoon at this prime establishment. From the moment we arrived and Willie and Wayne greeted us with a welcome, until the moment we left the next morning, everything was perfect. Wayne is the perfect host, and Cedric was very helpful in all aspects and giving advice on where to go for dinner. Top class stay!

We stayed 2 nights at the Alexander and we will never forget the great hospitallity and friendly staff. We really felt at home. After some booking problems between the travelagency and the owner (Wayne) we got a very warm welcome. Wayne offered us the Captains suite which is very beautifful with a nice bathroom and all the comfort you can imagine.
Cedric was also very friendly en brought us every evening to the restaurants and after diner he was there to pick us up. Always with the same good mood. Breakfast was brilliant with everything you want and served by the lovely Memory with a big smile.
Also the views on the terras are awesome.
Now we are back in Belgium but we know we will go back!
Don't hesitate if you are searching for a perfect and honest guesthouse in Knysna : take the Alexander!
