“Perfect stay at Knysna Stays”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely lovely place to stay. We stayed for 3 nights in the wilderness room. It was very modern, clean and comfortable. Perfectly positioned for the waterfront and The heads. A good location to stay in to explore numerous places along the garden route. Rose who works there is so friendly and even allowed us to borrow her mobile when we had a small issue. Lloyd who owns the guest house is there every morning to see how things are going. He was extremely helpful ANC informative and recommended some fantastic places to visit and eat. Would definitely stay there again if stopping off in Knysna.

This Guest House is situated just on the edge of Knysna, with good views. The bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well decorated. The staff were attentative and served a great breakfast. Lloyd, the owner was full of info of the surrounding area and was able to arrange at short notice a round of golf at Simola, a challenging and pretty golf course with great views just above Kysna. Having stopped in different establishments in Knysna over the years, I wish I had found this one earlier.

It was our second stay at Knysna Stays, the first time we came in December 2011 and the last time we stayed from Dec 22nd 2012 - January 5th 2013. We stayed at the Wilderness apartment and liked it very much. We certainly hope to return next year. All apartments are very clean, tastefully decorated and cosily furnished. The service was excellent and the staff, Rose and her team are all adorable and helpful and it was a pleasure to meet them in the morning to enjoy the yummy breakfast. The owner, Lloyd is a very good and attentive host he gave us excellent suggestions for things to do in Knysna and its surroundings. For Golfers it is a real paradise Simola and Pezula are great courses and Llyoyd can arrange teetimes for very good rates.

We can happily recommend Knyna stays to others, we can confirm all positive ratings we have seen about Knysna Stays.

Thanks Lloyd for 2 fantastic weeks, hopefully we see eachother soon

We were 3 nights at the knysna stays in Jan 2013 and every thing was perfect. The owner of the guesthouse and its staff made our stay very nice and enjoyable.
We would not hesitate to stay there again if we would come back to knysna.

Thx once more for the good say you provide us.

I am well travelled but rarely intervene on Trip Advisor because it takes time but once in a while I find a little gem of a place that really merits support. This is one of those time. Basically, the Manager of this B&B (Lloyd) was very helpful and knowledgeable. Staff was adorable and helpful. The quality price /ratio was super. Amazing rooms and accomodations with great views. Great breakfast.

Stayed here for three nights with my family. We loved it very much. It was one of our favorite hotels during our SA trip. Very kind staff. The owner, Lloyd, was very helpful and gave us excellent suggestions for day activities, for example going to the Jubilee Creek which was magical. If we come back Knysna, this will be the place to stay.
