This is my second stay with Edith and Cecil and loved it again! It is a great home away from home. The service is exceptional - 5 STAR quality! Wonderful breakfast - attentive service - very clean rooms.

Great location - close to the city, close to the heads, and beautiful view.

Don't pass up a chance to stay here!

It was like being at home.... Very friendly people, Cecil and Edith. Very beautiful. Look forward to returning. Very gracious people. Great location with a very beautiful view. Real close to the Heads and right next to a golf course and down town

We spent only one night with Edith and Cecil and it felt like visiting friends! Warm welcoming people in a beautifully appointed home with delicious food. It was a rather cold and rainy day and we were kindly offered a glass of sherry! Will definitely recommend this wonderful B&B to everyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

I recommend Lavender Hill Guest House> I stayed for 3 splendid nights and the hosts were friendly and gave advise on places for sightseeing and walking. I will certainly recommend it to prospective visitors.

Edith,
Thank you so much for an amazing stay at Lavender Hill. We LOVED every minute of our short visit to Knysna. I can only commend you on the wonderful accommodation you offer and will definitely be staying with you again. Thanks for welcoming us with open arms after a long, tedious and tiring journey. Much appreciated. The du Preez

We recently spent the weekend in Knysna for the forest half marathon and we had a very pleasant stay at Lavender Hill Guest House. The room was lovely and had a wonderful view. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was lovely. A great overall experience.

We stayed in the self catering part of the guest house, however Edith & Cecil catered for us every morning with a full breakfast. Everything was clean and comfortable, a home from home. Edith and Cecil the owners made us feel very comfortable and ensured our stay was enjoyable. Our three year old had a blast, and thought he was at home. It was clear that Edith and Cecil enjoyed kids. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Knysna.
