Nothing to complain about here. Clean rooms, safe & secure, stunning views and Kate and Natalie were just as accommodating as every says they are! Felt right at home. Seriously was sad that we only had one night here. If I ever returned to Knysna, I would stay here again!

Oh- and best shower (hot and great water pressure) experience that I had the whole two weeks in S. Africa. Just in case that matters to anyone :)

We spent only 2 nights at Double Dutch, which was too short . Kate and Nathalie were a great help to solve a mishapping at Schiphol Airport with the ipad of Gerda. The view on the Heads from our room was great . The service and the choice of the food for breakfast was excellent.
We felt sorry that we had to leave this lovely place

Room Tip: The 3 rooms higher up do have an great view on the Heads and the city of Knysna

Completely fantastic B&B. Our stay got off to a good start when their detailed directions meant we found the place with no trouble. Unfortunately we arrived on a rainy day and so Kate and Natalie kindly suggested that we change room - our original room had a balcony/veranda that we wouldn't have got much use out of in the weather. They upgraded us to the Eagle Room which was great and very comfortable. Wifi was fast which was helpful as unfortunately I was in the midst of completing online job applications on our holiday. The service is second to none and they are both willing to go out of their way to help. They recommended a lovely place for lunch at The Heads called Senza where we enjoyed tasty pasta and good views and their knowledge of the surrounding area is excellent. Breakfast was very tasty with a good range of continental options together with delicious made-to-order hot breakfasts. My omelette was gorgeous and they coped very patiently with my boyfriend's slightly complicated order! Overall, definitely worth their number one ranking. We really hope to stay again, so we can experience Double Dutch hospitality and comfort, and hopefully see Knysna in the sun this time!

We spent 3 nights of our honeymoon at the Double Dutch B&B, and it was superb.
Kate and Natalie greeted us with champagne and treats to celebrate our honeymoon. They were extremely helpful and kind, and did their best to address any of our needs.
The place itslef is beautiful. The view from the suite is absolutely stunning - looking straight to "The Heads" of Knysna lagoon.
Breakfast was generous and tasty, and the suite was spacious, shiny clean and fun to stay at.
It's a great place both as a base for day trips and to relax by the pool, having a glass of wine from the "honesty bar".
We'll definitely recommend this place to our friends, and will try to come back ASAP.
Thanks you Double Dutchies!

Based on the nr 1 ranking on Trip advisor we booked a one night stop over in Knysna at DD b&b. And how they deserve to be on top! The warmest, entusiastic welcome ever, lots of tips (too many for only one day) Great room, view, garden, (happy hour at the) pool area.
Everything else is already said in previous reviews and so true.
It’s a short review but it was a (too) short stay. When returning to SA, we’ll definitely come back!

We, two couples, stayed here for 5 nights in the middle of a 3 weeks journey through SA. We loved to be here since it was the most beautiful place within this 3 weeks.
We can highly recommend D&D as a wonderful, familiar and lovely place to relax.
Hope we will be able to come back again one day
Again many thanks and a big hug to Nathalie & Kate for being such a perfect host.

We (family of four) stayed here just after Christmas in the rooms above the main house with an amazing view of the Lagoon. Rooms, common areas including pool and breakfast were all excellent but what set Double Dutch apart for us was the warm and friendly welcome and helpful advice of Nathalie & Kate.
