I have been travelling In South Africa and went to many guest houses but this one was by far the best. Loved every minuet I was there. Kat and Andrew were fantastic hosts and very friendly and made staying there enjoyable. The views of Knsyna from the guest house was breath taking. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable.
It is a place you can't miss out on when staying in Knsyna.

My parents and I stayed 4 nights at Brenton Hill. We cannot say enough good things about this guest house. Catriona and Andrew were incredible hosts! Breakfasts were very good and although there is no restaurant right there, Catriona was a great resource for restaurants in the area. Pemby's and The Bell (pub) are 5-8 minute drive and excellent! The view from the patio over the lagoon at night is spectacular!
We would highly recommend Brenton Hill to anyone going to Knysna.
Have fun!

I stayed at Brenton Hill Guest House for the final week of a 3 month trip through Africa, which was the perfect ending to a perfect trip! The guest house is set in beautiful grounds with an incredibly stunning view over Knysna lagoon. It is perfectly placed for reaching all the sights in and around Knysna or just relaxing by the pool and taking in the views. My room was spacious and clean - the whole of the guest house is immaculate. Catriona and Andy were wonderful hosts and made me feel so welcome. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

The guest house is approached up a quiet road winding over the hilltop before entering the drive when the extent of the single-storey building first comes into view overlooking the broad expanse of the lagoon. We were warmly welcomed by Catriona and her husband, Andy, who had brought their two young children from the UK to make a new life in South Africa.
Drinks are available from the 'honesty bar' in the corner of a large sitting room with access to an ample barbecue area on the terrace overlooking the sloping gardens and a small swimming pool.
Our room, more accurately described as a suite, was enormous with a similarly large and well-appointed modern bathroom. The view from the bedroom and from its own wood-decked terrace was quite breathtakingly beautiful and one of the features which sets Brent Hill House apart.

We stayed in several guest houses in South Africa but this one was the very best. All the rooms are beautiful with stunning views over the lagoon and Knysna. There is a lovely general bar, sitting area and swimming pool. The breakfasts were fantastic and the owners provide a free taxi service to restaurants in the evening. The whole guest house is on one level which provides easy access both for the elderly and those in wheelchairs.
