The Bamboo Guesthouse was one of our stops on the Garden Route, we spent 3 nights here in November. Very friendly, comfortable environment, lovely settings, friendly hosts, helpful staff and great breakfast. Lovely stay in a lovely place, thank you :) Zsuzsanna and the family from Hungary

We have been travelling around quite a lot and stayed in many great places. Sometimes, however, you walk into a place which feels like coming home. Bamboo guesthouse tops that list and the welcoming, warm admosphere combined with unique quality accomodation makes us rate this guesthouse top of our list! There is only one right way to find out what i am talking about and that is to stay there for a couple of nights. Chances are you agree with me.

The setting is lovely - boardwalks through a mini-forest in a suburban lodge. It feels like a place that would find favour equally from well-heeled backpackers or well travelled yuppies. It's very laid back, friendly and has a great buzz. We visited on a quiet day, so I imagine it will be better when there are more people around. Good b'fast, well appointed rooms.

I stayed at Bamboo for one night on a last minute decision and I was extremely sad that I was scheduled to leave the next day. There is no doubt in my mind that Bamboo will be my first choice to stay upon my return to Knysna. The lodge is super romantic and cosy. You enter and you are part of a family. The hosts are outstanding, the rooms are super clean and the food is delicious. I had a blast of a time despite being single. I could only imagine how perfect this place would be with someone special to share this experience with.

We found Bamboo on the net and it looked great and we were not disappointed!! We travelled as a big family group with 13 kids through many African countries on a 6 week tour and the Bamboo was a highlight for us. Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed New Years with them and the live band! The rooms were spacious with beautiful decor filled with art that is for sale, coffee plungers, port and chocolate biscuits. Breakfast was a real treat with the best homemade musli, cooked treats and great holondaise sauce.
Jaynie and Gordon were very welcoming and extremely helpful in organising activities and tours for us and went above and beyond in making sure we were looked after.
Granny's gift shop was beautiful and I wish I had bought one of her own hand knitted jumpers or scarf's.
The kids loved the accommodation too as the pools were great and the garden like an adventurers jungle with a surprise around every corner! Thanks so much Bamboo Guest House xxx

Room Tip: We used 4 of their rooms and all were excellent!
