Stayed 2 nights. It is off the beaten track so you need a car to get anywhere, although we did get a taxi down to the waterfront and back. Lovely views from the patio overlooking the swimming pool. Our room was fine although the bathroom was tiny . We could hear breakfast being prepared as we were very close to the dining room. Breakfast itself was very nice, especially the fruit salad ! The hosts were lovely and keen to make sure you were happy. 1 day we wanted to go to the beach so they gave us an umbrella, body board, and 2 chairs for the beach . That's service !

We recently stayed at the Knysna Country House, unfortunately just for 1 night - not long enough! Our bedroom was really comfortable, and the outdoor pool/seating area is fab and really spacious. Knysna was one of the most beautiful places we visited on our trip to South Africa and this guesthouse was the icing on the cake. The owners were so friendly and helpful and made us feel incredibly welcome - in addition their breakfasts are fantastic. We would definitely book to stay here again in the future!

Beautiful setting, convenience in location, comfort that made you yearn for bedtime (we stayed in a double room), delicious breakfasts, friendly and accommodating hosts - our thoughts after a 3 night stay. Simply put - great value for money!

We had really great friendly hospitality at Knysna Country Cottage. The room had everything we needed and the place is close to restaurants and amenities. Although we were only in town for one night on our road trip the stay was perfect and our hosts were super friendly and we'll certainly be back when we next head to Knysna.

This guesthouse was recommended to us by our travel agent, and we were quite happy with his choice! This is one of the better guesthouses we visited in South-Africa. We got a warm welcome by Ypie and Erik, and could immediately relax after our long car drive at the excellent swimming pool in a nice garden. Breakfast (outside when it's nice weather) is of very good quality, with friendly service from owners as well as personnel, that's all you need while on vacation! Our room was spacious, but we would have liked more light in it, and somewhat more space in the bathroom, otherwise no complaints. It takes 15 min to drive from the guesthouse to the Knysna center and harbor, were we booked a guided visit to the Featherbed Nature Reserve on one of the Heads, also to be recommended! Thanks to Ypie, we could attend a concert in the harbor in the evening, a nice coincidence while we were there. All in all, a nice resort to stay while you are in Knysna!

This is a beautiful place to stay with amazing views, very comfortable and spacious. The family suite was ideal for us all, close to the pool which we could jump into. The breakfast is yummy, big mixed selection of foods.
Eric and Ypie are lovely people, very friendly and welcoming with a good sense of humour. We would recommend everyone to stay here because it is so relaxing
