What sells this guest house are the views from the suites. Unfortunately a neighbouring property has now spoilt the outlook from some rooms but these are sold at a cheaper rate. You will need to enquire. This is a guest house which grows on you the longer you stay. The management have a more relaxed style then we experienced elsewhere...

On arrival we were warmly welcomed. Nothing was too much bother for the owners. The rooms were beautifully and we were given a choice of two really spacious rooms. Both with nice views of the bay. The guest house itself is situated in a fabulous location and a stones throw from the sea where there a a couple of well...

Lovely, clean, picturesque and a beautiful stay along the garden route! Breakfast was divine and the hosts more than helpful with finding and making a Last minute reservation for us at the most delicious restaurant in town for dinner.

Enjoyed a lovely stay here en-route to Cape Town. Location is down a narrow road to one of the heads where there are two cafe/restaurants located (popular esp in December!). Views are brilliant and the accommodation has a small pool that overlooks this and is a sun trap. There is a small hidden beach reached by a small walk too....

Absolutely amazing atmosphere! We were treated to the most breathtaking view of Knysna in all her glorious splendour. The hotel itself is très chic infused with rustic classic and comfortable. It is upscale without being overtly pretentious! The modern bar and dazzling fairylights aroud the balcony add a magnetic charm and unique edge. My gin & tonic was served with...

Right at the end of Knysna Heads, great views over the lagoon. Comfortable rooms. Friendly management. One restaurant nearby for dinner, but otherwise need to drive to other activities. Breakfasts were really good.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite over Xmas. The 180 degree of the bay and Heads view is exquisite. You can sit in the enormous bed and see all around. The suite is a set of large rooms, more than we needed. It could do with a bit of updating but everything was clean and comfortable. The hosts were professional...

Delightful view. The place is run down though. Could do with a clean of the carpets and improved bedding. The bathroom was not of a decent standard, towels were aged. The host was not entirely welcoming

Thanks for the somewhat puzzling review. Puzzling, because you didn't actually stay here - your daughter did! And probably also puzzling for anyone reading this, because it's so at odds with all the other reviews, that say the exact opposite... Are you sure you reviewed the correct hotel?

We have stayed here a few times and are never disappointed. The rooms are large, airy and very comfortable, most with great views over The Heads and the lagoon. In the very busy area private parking is a huge bonus. Our hosts were very friendly and informative being able to answer lots of questions we had about the area and...
