Double Dutch B & B

Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at Double Dutch in early September and LOVED it! Nathalie and Kate were so welcoming and helpful with recommendations on where to eat and what to do in Knysna. Their home is beautiful and our room was lovely, fresh and spacious. I was very sad to leave but would recommend a stay at Double Dutch to anyone - we travelled around South Africa for 3 weeks and the stay in Knysna was without a doubt one of the highlights of our trip.

We stayed in the Double Dutch for 2 nights.

to illustrate how we liked the place I'll say this: Initially, it was just for a one night, but because we loved it so much we decided to go all the way back from storms river to knysna (about 2 hour drive) just to relax at the Double Dutch....yes it's that good..:)

Great rooms, all the facilities you want, clean, rich breakfast with a special menu and of course the wonderful hospitality of Natalie and Kate.. Excellent vibe and wonderful people...

All you can ask for in a B&B and more...

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with the view to the heads

We were in South Africa in 5 Stations, allways B&B. We enjoyed our trip. Nathalie in Double Dutch was very friendly, takes care for us, gave us best informations and made us a wonderful breakfast so we were melting down. She did it without help. Nathalie give Double Dutch a "good Soul". We live in Austria in a tourism region and I wish many houses here can take DD as a very good example to make people happy. Thanks for all! Ursula & Dietmar

This was my second stay at Double Dutch. Those who know me will know I will not go back to a place if I am not happy with two things viz; cleanliness and good service. On both counts Kate and Natalie from Double Dutch score 10/10. They are both hands-on and very clued up with what is going on in the area. Attention to detail is evident and thank you for referring me to the Anchorage restaurant for dinner. Both the stay at your Guest House and meals at the restaurant were awesome. I will be back next year.

Room Tip: All the cottage rooms are excellent

In May 2013 we made a tour in South-Africa and stayed in ten different wonderful guesthouses. But by far, Double Dutch B&B was the best. We stayed in the Pelican room which was spacious, very comfortable and with a great view. Beside this every day we enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the owners Kate and Nathalie. Hopefully we are in the opportunity to come back here in the near future.

The hospitality and beautiful situated and comfortable guesthouse made our stay to a perfect stay. Delicious breakfast with a wonderful view on the Knysna heads makes a very good start of the day. Many tips of the possibilities what to visit and to do in the environment.

Very warm approach by Kate and Nathalie, we felt very welcome and were treated as good friends!

Dearest Nathalie and Kate
Its been a month since I stayed at Double Dutch and I’m still raving about it to everyone. This is no typical Guest House. It is private, quiet and truly a place just to relax. Double Dutch is the perfect balance between the great and personalised service you’ll receive at the best of hotels and the privacy needed; just to be away from it all.
To Kate and Nathalie, thanks for an awesome time and I will be back!
