“Highlight of our Knysna trip”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

What a gem!!! Rose, Lloyd and the rest of the staff made our stay a comfortable one. We started our days with a delicious breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast service was prompt and of the highest standard. Lloyd took great interest in his guests and what we got up to, he made valuable suggestions about excursions. Our room had a great view and the staff did an excellent job at keeping it clean. We will definitely come and stay here again and would suggest it to anyone.... Stunning stunning place and people!

Set on the hill looking over Knysna lagoon, Knysna Stays offers quality accommodation and service. We were met on arrival by Rose, who showed us to our room. The room was of a very high standard,and the balcony looked over the lagoon. Rose always had a smile and arranged taxis for us. There is a courtesy taxi to sirocco restaurant, which was pretty good too. Breakfast was tasty, and you can eat out by the pool or inside. Lloyd, the owner was on hand at breakfast to suggest places to visit and if you play golf, don't miss out on the opportunity to play at Simola where Lloyd gets great rates. A similar course would cost nearly three times the price to play in the UK. I played a round with Lloyd and although my golf was a bit wayward, had a great time!
I wouldn't hesitate to book a stay here again if i return to SA.

Stayed at Knysna Stays for 6 nights and rate it as one of the best B&Bs I've stayed at in SA. Seems quite a new building with quality fittings and furnishing throughout. Lloyd was spot on as a welcoming and informative host and Rose, the main helper, was charming. I certainly hope to return next year.

Hello Lloyd
again a warm "Thanks" to you and your team for the outstanding good service and support! Knysna Stays B&B was the best choice we could have imagined: the nice "Knysna Suite" with its stunning view to the lagoon, this was the perfect "home" for us on our roundtrip throughout the Garden Route. Recommendable!
Warmest regards
Konny and Jörg

Hi Konny & Joerg,
Wow what a wonderful review.
Isn't it ironic this review may not of even happend following your travel experience in St Francis Bay , after you ringing me saying we may have to cancel our booking with you because of very extreme weather conditions which flooded and damaged roads and meant you could not leave your accommodation as the bridge was so badly damaged , luckily the great car hire company came to the rescue and released another car for you and you were able to come and enjoy your stay at Knysna Stays .
We were delighted that the weather improved dramatically for you in Knysna .Trish and I were so pleased you could see the funny side of your experience which then allowed you to enjoy the rest of your holiday. We will always remember you both and hopefully we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Knysna Stays one day.
Warmest regards,
Lloyd , Trish & all the team at Knysna Stays.

Both the bedroom and bathroom were spacious, immaculate, and in a peaceful location. The staff were charming, security conscious, and keen to oblige. Breakfast was of excellent quality, plentiful, and promptly served. Relatively secure parking.

My husband, myself and sister who lives in Canada stayed here two years ago. It was the best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in. Lloyd and Trish's hospitality went way beyond the normal call of duty. It was our first time to Knysna and we enjoyed Lloyd's enthusiastic approach in showing us around, it was like having our own tour guide. The scenery and places he took us were unbelievable and we would never have seen left to our own devises. Thank you so much for making our stay so memorable. Hope to return. Many thanks. Christine.
