Throughly enjoyable, proffessional service, great view from the breakfast table, continuous barking from neighbour's dog was irritating as was noisy rattle of keys by the guests especially late at night and early in the morning

This well maintained Guest House is located well away from central Knysna and on a hill requiring transport to the waterfront area where all the restaurants are situated. The reception helped us get a taxi which worked out well (Cost $8 each way - not expensive). Good views of the bay from a high altitude.Breakfast was standard and pleasant.

Well maintaned property, with a excellent view over the lagoon. Our room was big and had a fantastic terrace overlooking the lagoon. Good location, even though it was a bit further off main street than we thought, since it was not possible to walk due to the hilly location.

Too far out of the town to walk, set in the hills, which give good views from the rooms with a balcony. Rooms large and comfortable. Breakfast good, service average, the place was locked up when we returned at 10pm, we had to let ourselves in, but would stay there again.

Well appointed accommodation and a good breakfast. What more could you want? Easy parking and a reasonable size swimming pool. Staff were efficient, helpful and polite. Property was well locate being just a short drive to the waterfront restaurants.

Overseer is a very comfortable guest house in a quiet area of Knysna. The accommodation is very good and the pool area is better than the average for a guest house. Good views from this elevated position

Beds were terrible, Felt like hammock. Slept so badly. Eventually had to lie across the bed to give our backs the support. Also very noisy from the traffic. Breakfast was good with good service. Had to wait 5 minutes at reception for receptionist.
