the welcome and hospitality from the owners Coleen and Cecil was superb and they gave us great dining and sightseeing advice. the guest house was perfect and the room and bathroom superb, very comfortable and large with a lovely verandha. we greatly appreciated breakfast being served on the balcony outside our room. Views of The Heads and lagoon from our balcony were to die for. It is a little way out of the centre, probably a 10-15 mins wlak, but only a ZAR 30 taxi ride away so why worry!! thanks to C&C for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: make sure you have a lagoon view

Good day to you

Thank you indeed for the great review you did on your stay with us at Hide-Away Guest House.

We love hearing back from our guests on the points they enjoyed - especially the breakfast served on the verandah whilst enjoying the spectacular views we have of the Lagoon and Heads.

We hope that you decide to return to South Africa in the not too distant future and that you make Knysna (and Hide-Away) a definite inclusion on your itinerary.

Take care and kind regards

Cecil & Colleen

Hello Karin

Thank you for the review on your stay with us at Hide-Away Guest House.

We do apologise that the internet was not working to your satisfaction. We have since ascertained that the national service provider (Telkom) has been working on upgrading the internet systems country wide and we believe you were here during one of their "down times". We usually have excellent internet/wireless connectivity as we realise it is has now become one of the main criteria for accommodation selection when guests travel around South Africa.

Thank you once again for staying with us. We wish you all the best for the forthcoming Festive Season.

Kind regards
Cecil & Colleen

Hide Away Guesthouse was the perfect place to spend three "recovering" days on our three weeks adventure trip to South Africa. The guest house management help us to make the visit in Knysna a memorable experience.

We got a warm welcome at the hide away guesthouse from de friendy owner.
The guesthouse lies in walking distance from the center of Knysna and the waterfront. The breakfast was excellent. Our stay was just for one night so a little short for this nice place.

Comfortable rooms, great views and a wonderful welcome. We had three rooms side by side which were perfect for our group to share the balcony together. Breakfast was fantastic too! Everything in Kynsna was in easy access with great recommendations from our host.
