“Spectacular view”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Some of the houses almost feel,as they are about to fall off the cliff. It's the sort of view that that is mesmerising

“You Must Go Down to the Sea”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Knysna Heads are pretty great no matter how you see them, but the best views we saw--by far--were when we went all the way down to the sea/beach, where you can walk among or climb over a multitude of gorgeous kaleidoscopic rocks and boulders. You can drive almost all the way down or walk via the Eastern head. And being the only humans present (at around 10 in the morning) only added to the enchantment. This was the number one attraction of our 3-week trip to South Africa and neighboring countries.

“Breakfast with a view”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

A fantastic breakfast setting, eating whilst watching the sea roll in through the Heads. Great for families. The food was varied and delicious.
