4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Lovely property, beautifully located overlooking the lagoon from Thesen Hills. Homely environment, lovely furniture great rooms, well maintained grounds, with helpful staff members. Good sumptuous breakfast, outstanding view from the patio, would loved to have stayed longer in this part of the truly stupendous Garden Route

Spectacular view straight onto the Knysna heads. The hotel is close enough to the centre of town, but far enough that it is peaceful. We were in one of the garden facing rooms and it actually created the impression that we were in the middle of the Knysna forest. The breakfasts were superb. The staff were all helpful and made great recommendations for restaurants in the area.

The room was comfortable and very clean. Free wi-fi was included in the price.

This was our third stay at Falcon's View and we were not disappointed. There is always a warm welcome here and the stunning views from the verandah and many of the rooms make it very special. Our room on the first floor was spacious with the view over Knysna Lagoon. The bathroom, complete with huge bath has the same view. There is a delightful garden where the excellent breakfasts are served. Dinner is available which we enjoyed on two occasions and there is an excellent wine list. We can strongly recommend Falcon's View.

Room Tip: Choose between rooms with a view in the main house or huge garden rooms with patios.

Lovely old manor house situated on the hill overlooking the picureque estuary. Very helpful, obliging and friendly staff. The hotel has lots of character with tastefully furnished public rooms and very comfortable and well equipped bedrooms and bathrooms. There is a small restaurant for residents where dinner is served, there is really no need to go out. Breakfast is served alfresco if the weather is clement. A covered porch area stretching the length of the hotel is ideal for a sundowner as you enjoy the view. If the weather is a little cool they light a log fire in the evening. It's just the perfect place to unwind or explore the local area, which has lots to offer.

The hotel, once a private house, has a wonderful position overlooking Knysna. Not too far from the town centre it offers peace and tranquility. Our welcome glass of wine was enjoyed on the balcony at sunset. Rooms are spotless and well furnished, although the design of the house means ceilings are sloped. The bathroom was well fitted and modern with a good shower. We chose to eat in rather than go into town. The menu was imaginative and the food well prepared with excellent service. Breakfast was generous with fresh fruit and a cooked choice.
We have stayed there before and will do so again.
Good solid comfort.

Room Tip: You could ask if any rooms have views of the town.

We were here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer.

We can only echo the other positive reviews of the accommodation, the gorgeous views of the Knysna lagoon from the veranda, the professional and friendly service and the lovely gardens.

Breakfast was top class (including breads from the famous Ile de Pain bakery), and dinner on the terrace on both evenings was superb. The wine list is outstanding, offering a really good selection of South African wines at very fair prices,including some excellent wines by the glass.

A five star boutique hotel experience. We loved it.

We stayed here for 2 nights and would definately return! A beautiful hotel with lovely staff. Our room was very large as was the the lovely bathroom and the decor was first class. The dinner & breakfast in the garden were sublime and the view from the front terrace overlooking Knysna were superb, as were the sundowners! The gardens and pool area are lovely and the added bonus of monkeys popping in to say hello is the icing on the cake. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very pampered.
