Very nice people who are making everything possible. The hotel has an excellent view over the lagune of Knysna and makes it to a perfect stay for a Knysna visit. A beautiful beach is just around the corner.

The breakfast is really superb, they have a lovely cook over there! This was the best address on our 2-weeks trip through South Africa, both for the breakfast and for the room,...

We spent five enjoyable nights at the Villa. It has magnificent views of Kynsa, in fact you are so high up that on one morning you could literally touch the clouds as they whizzed past our balcony Breakfast is freshly prepared by Chef Juan and served by a lovely team of ladies. We stayed in a deluxe room which has...

Lucky to find this place at such short notice during peak tourist season in December. Didn't know too much about the place when we booked and so we're very pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to the Tuscan style villa nestled on the hillside overlooking Knysna. After a warm welcome from the host we were shown around the place, including...

Amazing atmosphere, beautiful location, delicious breakfast, worth the price. If I have a chance I would stay again in this property with open heart! There is a beach close to the hotel which is a must. Watch the sunset if you have a chance.

The hotel is undoubtedly located in one of the best parts of Knysna, given its magnificent view on the lagoon and picturesque town. However, the room with balcony we had booked, did not offer a pretty view, which one would expect when booking a room with a balcony in a five-star guest house. The hotel was very quiet as we...

Spacious rooms, beautiful views and friendly and helpful staff, this guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in the Knysna area. Fabulous breakfasts. We just wish we had more time to spend here. Would thoroughly recommend this guesthouse.

Unbelievably bad service! I went to a show there, and the poor waiting staff were totally untrained. The starters were a snack platter, but no side plates. The queues at the bar were horrific, and it was almost impossible to get a drink. We ordered eventually from the waitress and it took over an hour to get the drinks. The...
