“A wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in January, 2012, and were extremely impressed with the location, the property and the hosts. The house is situated on the hill overlooking the town and the lagoon, with a large deck showing the lovely views and used for breakfast when weather permits. We had a large room (Room 4), which was beautifully furnished and had it's own small patio overhung with a vine that was heavy with grapes when we were there. The breakfasts were all one could wish for and the hosts, Mart and Pete, were hospitable and helpful with advice about local attractions. All in all a very enjoyable stay - despite the rain whilst we were there - and we hope to be able to return.

Also during our 4th stay we were very satisfied with Mart and Pete and their staff at this very comfortable and well located lodge.
Also some of our German friends and my brother with family have been here.
Some of the quiet, comfortable rooms with nice "old style" furniture have a private balcony overlooking the lagoone.
When having the full course breakfast at the main terasse you will just like to sit the hole day there and look to the city and lagoone.
You may leave your car at the private parking and just take down the few steps to the city center.
Indeed the best value for your money at Knysna. For sure, we will come back again in near future

Can not say enough about Mart & Pete the owners of this place. Mart went out of her way to make my friend's birthday memorable with all of her helpful arrangements. Pete cooked fantastic breakfasts. Both were so friendly and easy to talk to that it was sad to say goodbye to them. Felt like we were leaving good friends. The place itself is so cosy & comfortable. Beautiful garden, great views from the porch of the waterfront, easy to walk into town. A must stay place.

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at this venue. They very kindly checked us in early which was really convenient. Great view from our room, friendly service, very chilled.

My husband and I only stayed for 1 night and it was very nice, friendly hosts, good breakfast and close to all amenities. The room had a lot of beautiful antiques furniture in it, extremely cosy and comfortable, they will see us again.

very nice place with much character and really lovely breakfast patio with fantastic view. this guesthouse is a little more casual then some but is filled with interesting antiques and is nicely decorated. the owners are welcoming and helpful. i thought the price was very reasonable for the level of service. we would return.

I stayed in the Lodge for five nights and had a well appointed room which was very comfortable, spacious, and decorated with taste. The hosts, Piet and Mart, were very hospitable and extended a very warm welcome to me which was sustained throughout my 5 day stay. I felt right at home, but a home with all the comforts of a hotel. The breakfasts, on the deck overlooking the Knysna Quay and the famous Knysna Heads, were delicious with a variety of fruits, cereals and a wholesome cooked meal on offer. i could eat breakfast at any time - either very early or later and it was served wiht equla grace everyday. If you go to Knysna you have to stay there not only for all the above reasons, but Piet also makes a great omelette!
