“I'm a very happy camper!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This was my second visit to Knysna Stays and if possible I think it was even better than my first trip! I booked directly rather than use an online booking agency and this was much easier. Trish was always prompt and efficient to reply and it was much more of a personal service dealing with the owners directly.
On arrival I received a warm welcome from Rose and the team. The rooms were better than I remembered as they are spacious, clean and modern with everything you need provided. Breakfast was a feast that really sets you up for the day!
Lloyd was always available each morning and full of ideas about how to fill your day. With his personal in depth knowledge of the area he enabled me to see and explore more than I'd done on previous visits. I really got to see all Knysna and the surrounding area had to offer. If it hadn't been for Lloyd I wouldn't have heard of much of what I did at all, he makes an excellent tour guide!!! This really was an added bonus I wasn't expecting but really helped to make my holiday as I certainly made the most of my time there.
Thank you so much Lloyd, Trish and the team for a highly enjoyable stay. I can't wait to go back again as there really is only one place for me to stay during my visits to the area and that's Knysna Stays!!!

What an amazing find! My husband and I stayed 14 nights and had an absolutely wonderful holiday. We chose three different accommodations within Knysna Stays as we like the variety and we couldn't have been more impressed with all 3. Lloyd the owner soon caught on to the fact that my husband loves his golf and arranged several rounds for him and other golfers at the stunning Simola and Perzula golf courses. You'd think that things couldn't get any better than that but he offers fantastic corporate rates!! A dream for Golfers and non golfers alike as i don't play but I was able to use the stunning pool at Simola, Bliss!! Lloyd and Trish, not only owners, but perfect hosts. A big thank you to all of the staff, in particularly the beautiful, kind, hard working and funny Rose who made us laugh every day. We miss you all!

Wow what a fantastic review.
Thank you so much for spending the time to write this detailed review of your happy experiences in Knysna and surrounding areas and especially here at our guest house Knysna Stays.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your golf at Simola and Pezula and it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to join you and our German guests on the golf course at Simola. Not quite the standard of play for the US masters but excellent for the Knysna Stays open, and great fun was had by all.
Rose and our staff enjoyed the laughter and conversations every morning at breakfast and wanted to give you a special gift of local flowers before you left to thank you for being such wonderful guests.
We will always remember you and hopefully we will see you again.
Warm Regards,
Lloyd , Trish , Hannah , Rose and all the team at Knysna Stays.

This was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at. We had a 2 year old child and therefore couldn't think of a better place to be at. We stayed for 3 nights in the Sedgefield catering apartment and it was spacious, clean and very well done up.. Llyod (owner) is a great host and made sure to speak with us every morning to give us useful tips about Knysna and the near by places. Rose, the manager of the place, was excellent and made us feel very much at home. Breakfast is great by the pool side. They also have a nice DVD / book library if you want one during your stay. Overall, we were very impressed. More than anything else, the hospitality stood out. Would surely recommend this to anyone going there. (Anuj)

Just back from spending a delightful four weeks in the Sedgefield self catering appartment in Knysna Stays. it was very well equipped,spacious and kept spotlessly clean and set in a lovely and secure garden, Lloyd and Rose and the rest of the staff were very helpful and tried thier best to make our stay a happy and interesting experience and we really felt at home there.

Knysna is beautifully located on the Garden Route surrounded by stunning scenery and breathtaking beaches. It is a small but friendly little town and everyone we met made us welcome and tried to make us feel at home. Lloyd is a mine of information on all the delights the area has to offer, We enjoyed a few breakfasts up in the breakfast area and everything was delicious. A great holiday!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review.
It was a great honour and priviledge to have both of you stay with us for a month.
Especially knowing you had a fantastic holiday at Knysna Stays .
There is always a moment of doubt when one is planning their holiday especially a holiday in one place for a month ,will there be enough things to see and do ? does the place have enough excellent scenery , restaurants and activities and is the hotel or guest house suitable for a long stay?
.You can clearly read from you your review that the apartment had all the requirements for a comfortable homely stay and Knysna has all the facilities to keep our visitors happy for a longer than average stay.
We are so pleased we were able to offer you all that you required.
Kind Regards,
Lloyd , Trish , Rose and all the team at Knysna Stays Guest House.

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.
