We enjoyed an excellent 3 night stay in the new garden cabins. Every detail is thought through by the super attentive hosts - e.g. mosquito cream, salt/pepper, beach towels, electric blankets, every possible kitchen necessity for short stay etc. Dieter is superb at giving advice on where to spend time and constantly checks if there is anything needed to make...

My stay was great and the hosts were extremely welcoming. Location was close enough to town but far from the noise of town. Plentiful parking. The breakfast buffet was great and the view was incredible from sunrise to sunset!

Disappointed. We were placed in a room right next to the kitchen, bar and deck. Very noisy because of other guests. Dog house right by the bedroom window, barking all night. Hardly got any sleep. Recommend to not use the rooms next to the kitchen. Not informed of free wifi or breakfast.

Sorry, that you were disappointed. You booked the cheapest room with the cheapest possible option: A low budget double room, which normally comes with breakfast. You decided to book the room without breakfast. This means, there was no need to inform you about breakfast, which is served from 8 am onwards. You arrived late evening, we checked you in. We...

Informal relaxing accommodation with views to die for. Loved the décor of our comfortable spacious room. Themed on Knysa's two claim's to biggest assets the setting and the sea. So we had the fishing net over the bedhead with a vista of the bay painted onto the opposite wall. Very clever. Tasty wholesome breakfast, honesty bar was another nice touch....

The Panorama was in a neighborhood of nice, large houses high up on the hill. We had to climb up a steep driveway, but what a great place! The owners, Tina and Dieter, greeted us, and he dragged my suitcase upstairs (thanks!). What lovely and friendly people they were. We snagged the room with a great view. My other friends...
