The rooms are large with an outdoor space, and with a fantastic view over Knysna lagoon. The Overmeer is about 3 or 4 Km from Knysna waterfront and center, so you need a car. The rooms could have been more clean. Very good breakfast.

Lovely views from our room and it was great to be offered a hot breakfast at no extra cost. The guest house was located high on the hill overlooking the bay but it well sign posted and easy to find. Must visit the waterfront while in the area and Knysna Head , it is beautiful.

Beautiful room, fantastic view, great breakfast and friendly staff. My husband had one problem that the waiter came to often to the table instead of waiting to be called. The waiter thought he was just being friendly and doing his job.

Great quality guesthouse. Lovely rooms and superb facilities. Heard this loud noise outside my room first thing in the morning, thinking someone was filming a Bollywood movie. It stopped-and-started for at least 15 minutes. Eventually I dragged myself out of bed (had no option) to look where the noise comes from, to find an half-deaf 80 year old Asian man...
