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...

We booked this guesthouse last minute during our SA honeymoon as we had 2 free nights and heard Knysna was a nice town to spend a few days. The reviews all looked very good so we had high hopes. On reflection, this is the only review ever placed by a huge number of the reviewers which raises questions in itself....

A fabulous place with what must be one of the best views in South Africa. We were upgraded on arrival to a room overlooking the lagoon. We could have spent all our time on the balcony watching the tides and the light changing. Without exception, the staff were helpful and pleasant. We were staying B&B but a chef-cooked dinner was...

Looks like something out of Hollywood, a little over the top. Although we arrived late we were welcomed by the lady in charge of catering who reserved a restaurant for us and showed us the way. The same lady recommended some visits for us the next morning. The owners were present but they didn't seem to talk to the guests.

Once you arrive you are greeted by class and beauty. Carin will greet you at reception together with her friendly and hard working staff. As you get to know...

The view of the Knysna is amazing! The location is very nice and a beautiful property. I arrived late and the staff gave great advice on where to get dinner - a nice pub in Brenton-on-Sea (?). In the evening an owner proudly showed the updates they have done to the property. When I got the bill they forgot to...

We were welcomed with warm hearts and the service was great. One would truly think you'd been there before, it would certainly be home away from home-the staff was truly amazing, warm and welcoming. The rooms were heavenly😍 I'd stay in there without going out, if it weren't too rude 😂 Thank you so much 💕
