    The Bamboo guesthouse is definitely a place where you would want to stay. The staff are friendly, the food is excellent and the rooms are superb! When you stay at the Bamboo you feel like you're on holiday.

    Nadine H
    Dear Sir or Madam, we would like to book Bamboo the Guesthouse in Knysna from 16. to 18.03.2016. We travel with 2 adults and our 3-years old son. We don't need a big bed for our son. At home he still sleeps in a baby cot. The big bed in your family room or family suite is too big (to high) for him to sleep. Which room can you recommend us? We would prefer a renovated room with nice bath room and - if possible - a wooden floor. Or perhaps the honeymoon suite. Thanks for your reply. Best regards Nadine
