Is in a very quiet position, each room has a dedicated parking, the rooms are fantastic, the structure is a small one but has mentioned is very friendly...

We spent Christmas 2015 at Knysna Heron and we did not book again this year was because Robert and Quinton were leaving in February 2016. Believe me you will know what I mean when you visit. They are welcoming hosts and the service is excellent at this lovely B&B. I said they had left but they were quickly called back...

Good value for money. We could however hear the guests in the next room and the pillows were uncomfortable. The room was beautiful, enjoyed the hospitality and will definitely come back. The complimentary coffee with milk every day was very thoughtful.

As part of our Honeymoon road trip we slept over at this establishment and was so impressed that we immediately wished we had booked a longer stay. Definitely a place we would come back to. Just a pity my wife forgot our pillow in the room. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Room clean and neat, albeit somewhat tiny for two people. But as we were there for sleeping only, not to much of an issue. Check in and check out process very easy and hassle free. Location nice and central in Knysna and easy to find.
