“Great Stay!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great stay! Edith and Cecil are wonderful! Perfect place in a perfect city. Recommend highly. The room was comfortable - always clean. The breakfast was excellent. Was with a group of 10 and they took good care of us!

Great B&B with warm, friendly and hospitable hosts, Cecil and Edith. The rooms are clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Excellent location, lovely views and easily accessible. Breakfast is delicious and very accommodating. Don't hesitate you book, you'll miss out if you don't. It comes highly recommended

Room Tip: The front room is lovely and sunny.

Attentive, welcoming guest house that made the guests feel very well-looked after.
This accommodation gives excellent value for money.
Hospitable hosts accommodated 5 girls with a cooked breakfast & very early send off to the airport on their day of departure.

Cecil and Edith are the most welcoming and friendly hosts I have had the pleasure of staying with in a very long time. The food was excellent, the rooms where warm, clean with a great view and very comfortable bed. We came for the weekend of the Knysna marathon and a pre-snack was set out at 4am without us even having to request it. Thank you both for making our stay that much more enjoyable (pity we couldn't run, but we'll be back next year.) thanks Romy and Dino

Cecil and Edith are the most wonderful hosts my friends and I have ever come across. At Lavender Hill Guest House, you will not only enjoy the fabulous and comfortable place but the food is just delicious! The place is very accessible and there are many activities that can be done in the surrounding. I personally believe that Lavender Hill Guest House is the place to be!

Loved the guest house. very peaceful and quite. Two awesome people Cecil and Edith. The guest house is a little home away from home with home made breakfast (very yummi :-) ) if you are looking for an unforgettable stay in Knysna, Lavender Hill is the place to be, close to all facilities.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have a beautiful view in the morning :)
