We stayed at Stannards Guest Lodge for 2 nights on our road trip through the Cape. After a long drive we were received a warm greeting and were shown around the facilities to our room. Although the room was small, it was actually very comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent very little time there anyway. The lodge has...

We stayed this place for a couple of nights and we were quite impressed with the property. It had independent single floor cottages which were very well done. It had a big lawn and beautiful garden all around. We enjoyed the stay here and would recommend anyone visiting Knysna.

Nice location with very helpful hosts. Rooms very good and a bonus of a pool for guests use. Breakfasts good with a nice variety also has a small African shop selling locally produced items. The owners support an initiative in a local settlement working with the children, very admirable

The Lodge is just stunning. Beautiful building. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with a nice view of the garden. The only downside was that the room was very cold. However you can start the fireplace and you do have a bedwarmer👍.

On our roundtrip in South Africa we visited Knysna and stayed in the wonderful Standards Guest Lodge. Patrick welcomed us and showed us our amazing chalet... Beautifully decorated with a lot of atmosphere. The fireplace was a nice bonus since the evenings in winter can be quite cold... The garden is also beautiful and the little shop gives you the...

We stayed in the lodge, apart from the central building. It was great, a lot of space, nice balcony, fire place (wood for free). The breakfast is perfect, they pay a lot of attention to this. The lodge was cleaned dayly. The lady of the reception was very helpful to suggest places to visit.
