Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Forget Me Not. The facilities were excellent; Mary and Derek are perfect hosts and are always available to assist.
Forget me not is very convenient - only a short distance from Knysna and surrounds.
We strongly recommend it to any one visiting Knysna.

Room Tip: We found the room extremely comfortable with a great view

So glad you enjoyed your stay and you were so popular with our feathered friend! We have not seen him since you left, you were obviously the attraction. Keep safe and we look forward to seeing you again.

We love Knysna it is romantic and magical and has the forrest and the ocean so it is a "everything" holiday. We returned to Knysna and used Forget-me-Not again. Forget-me-not is homely and spacious. We took a wonderful photo of the sunset over the lagoon from the deck of our room. We were in the Nest-everywhere in the unit was nice little touches to make it look more homely,we were warmly received and everything was very neat. The reservation process was handled professionally and promptly. Forget-me-not is located centrally in Knysna so you are close to the lagoon and the main road if you want to go to Plet or Wilderness etc. Wonderful I would like to go again and again. People are so fortunate to live in gorgeous Knysna

We really enjoyed our stay at Forget-me-not. It is a perfect location for exploring the Garden Route and has beautiful views. The apartment was restful, tastefully presented and the hosts, Mary and Derek, very friendly and full of helpful ideas for places to visit. We would definitely stay there again if we were in the area.

Forget-me-not is an excellent, serene place that has a very warm feel to it. It really feels like a home away from home. Mary and Derek, of Forget-me-not, helps a lot by organizing various activities in which you are interested. It was a dream come true to experience such a breathtaking area with warm and caring people to welcome you. The rooms are so pretty and consisted of everything that you need during a stay. I would highly recommend a stay at Forget-me-not during your visit in the garden route! :) By Pauli van der Merwe

This visit we were travelling down to Cape Town on Garden Route to celebrate ruby wedding with family. Knowing first hand that this establishment is clean, tastefully decorated and has superb hosts, we were thrilled to be able to stay at Forget-Me=Not again. We were not disappointed and enjoyed the wonderful beach as well as just lazing by the sparkling pool in the quiet garden. Mary has brilliant local knowledge and is astute to her guests needs. A star!

Room Tip: We chose the self catering studio apartment and ordered breakfast from Mary. Good healthy selection...

Any time of the year, Knysna is one of the best places in S.A to have a break-a-way. Great beaches, forests, adventure activities and staying at Forget-me-not makes it unforgettable.
Mary and Derek are well informed on places to visit, restaurants to eat at and the most daring activities if you like an adreniline rush. They can also guide you to solitary places where you will not be disturbed. The units have tranquil views of the lagoon and surrounding area seen from the decks. Breakfast on the deck is so relaxing and almost too beautiful to leave. The swimming pool welcomes you to the garden should you not feel like a day at one of the glorious beaches.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Nest very much.
