Stayed for 4 nights.
Property is out of town and near the N2, really near the N2, so there is definitely road noise, I had to use ear plugs. Welcome good, room was large enough with good size bathroom (another guest at the time said their room was too small though) The accommodation is chalet style so a lot of wood. View is good.
Property is run by a manageress not the owner, so not a true B&B, although Ester was pleasant and lives on site. The main downside is that most of the rooms radiate off the communal kitchen/dining/lounge area, so if you are not first for breakfast you will be awake anyway from the kitchen noise and conversation that ensues. Equally at the other end of the day if you want an early night other guests may be in the lounge or on the deck and are easily heard, as well as traffic.
Breakfast was good, although on 2 of our 4 days was made by a friend, with hubby and daughter in tow, as Ester had to be away. She did a 'help yourself' affair. On Esters return eggs were cooked to order.
Knysna was easy to get into and is pleasant enough but not really enough to do in the immediate vicinity for 4 days. That said if you are in the area do go to the Elephant park it is wonderful.(we did this on our way to Port Elizabeth, its about half hour from lodge).
Lighting in room and bathroom is poor, the upper windows desperately need a clean and if you are an electrician don't look at the sockets - too many extension leads.
Good honesty bar.
