Had a nice stay at Knysna Manor house.
Because of our little boy they upgraded our room to a family room, without extra costs. Perfect! The view is beautiful, just a couple of minutes downhill walk to the centre and the lagoon.

A lovely hotel run by a very nice couple. The rooms are very well decorated and extremely comfortable. the owners Brenda and Anthony, are more than happy to offer advice on such things as where to go and eat etc. The breakfast is really good and there is a bar that is open all day and night.

Room Tip: first floor seem to be best

The Manor is a building with lots of character, comfortable beds and old style/antique furniture. You can sense the history of the place.
The owners really care for the comfort and safety of the guests.
Located in a quiet street parallel tot the main street (shops etc.).

Knysna Manor House is the ideal stop over location for travelling the Garden route between the Eastern Cape (Port Elizabeth or East London) & Cape Town. Ideally situated in the town central within easy reach of all the restaurants, shops and sites. The management, Anthony & Brenda are excellent hosts and ensure that your stsy is excellent. The breakfasts are grest and the "honesty bar" is fairly priced. Hihly recommrnded.

Our family had a fantastic 5 night stay here. Brenda and Anthony made us feel very welcome in the comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms of this beautiful historical manor house. The location is perfect with many restaurants and shops etc within walking distance and it was an ideal base for exploring, by car, the many surrounding places of interest along the Garden Route. The full english breakfasts were delicious. We really appreciated the extra tips, advice and knowledge of the area given by our lovely hosts who go out of their way to look after you. We would highly recommend a stay here and would definitely return ourselves if we ever get the chance again.

I travelled alone on business, and for this purpose the Manor was perfect. It is cosy and homely, with secure parking and a hearty breakfast. Centrally located for dining out and shopping. Thanks to the owners for moving me into the house to a more appropiate single room!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Knysna Manor House is a 3 star, AA Highly Recommended Knysna guesthouse offering B&B accommodation on the Garden Route. It is a unique Bed and Breakfast that combines the charm of times gone by with modern amenities. Built in 1896, the guest house was the original home of the mayor of Knysna and was converted into a B&B in the 1980's. Knysna Manor House guesthouse is housed in a charming Victorian mansion located in the centre of town, overlooking the stunning Knysna Lagoon and is within a 2-5 minute walk of local shops, banks, craft markets, restaurants and the Knysna Waterfront. This Knysna accommodation consists of 13 en-suite rooms that have all been lovingly furnished and equipped with modern amenities including tea trays, a hairdryer (availale at reception), heaters, fans, additional blankets, tea/coffee making facilities. The majority of these rooms have a mini fridge. We have now opened up a self catering flat, which can accommodate two adults and two children. Guests can enjoy "Free Wi-Fi" Internet access in public areas, and in some rooms. We are working with the service provider to hopefully have the entire guesthouse wi-fi enabled. Breakfast is served from 7 - 9 either in the breakfast room, or on the deck overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The deck offers guests stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon and Knysna Heads, and is a quiet place to end the day after finishing one of the many day trips around Knysna. These include the hauntingly beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, George and Plettenberg Bay. We are a 3 Star, AA Highly Recommended accommodation provider. ... more   less
