We stayed here for three nights, and felt very comfortable and welcome. We had a double room and a twin room, both with good beds, well-appointed en suite bathrooms, large balconies with views over the water, a TV, a fridge, and kettle for tea-making. Everything was just so. The lounge had squishy sofas and a big TV, and led out onto a covered terrace and the beautiful garden - sadly it was too cold and wet to use the lovely-looking pool. We wandered down to the water a few times to drink in the views, and spent time interrogating Gavin's and Marion's bird books to try and identify the new birds we spotted every day.
Breakfasts were a real highlight, lots of choice of cereal, fruit, juice, breads, plus a huge plate of freshly cooked sausage, eggs, bacon etc. Marion and Gavin could not have been more helpful, answering questions about the locality and booking restaurants for us on a couple of evenings. The lodge is a short but beautiful drive from Knysna's centre, along the water's edge, and there's plenty to see nearby and in the town.
We really enjoyed our stay here, especially as Marion and Gavin seemed quite relaxed about our children, which not everyone is. An excellent place to settle for a few days.
