From the booking until the check-out, everything was done smoothly and professional. The welcoming by the 2 ladies on duty was very special. We enjoyed the lovely view over the lagoon. The room and bathroom was very naet. The lovely breakfast was served with lots of smile. Well done to you and your staff. We will definitely recommend your guesthouse...

Wonderful service and an amazing breakfast. The air freshner was overwhelming though and I think the freshener units should be removed. Chemicals are extremely unhealthy plus it makes the hotel smell rather like a toilet. Other than that a really lovely experience.

Modern sophisticated rooms, paid attention to the detail and they really put in an effort to give a luxurious and warm stay. The breakfast was a bonus. Wide variety to accommodate everyone's needs. The owner and helper, such sweet people. Always assisting with a smile.

From the moment we got to Knysna Terrace (baby in-tow), we were greeted by friendly staff who helped us carry our luggage (which is quite a bit when you have a 3 month old baby) - when they saw that we had a baby with us they moved a cot to room (which is beautiful and spacious with a big...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Knysna Terrace Boutique Guesthouse is a family owned and run guesthouse. At our core we hold to heart the stories from ancient Greece, which would caution mortals that any guest should be treated as if potentially a disguised divinity. It is these principles of hospitality toward any stranger who enters our establishment, and the belief of extending generosity and courtesy to our guests, with a warm-hearted and relaxed atmosphere, that makes us passionate about hospitality, but more especially about making your stay with us as memorable as possible. At Knysna Terrace Boutique Guesthouse we aim to stay true to nature and embrace this beautiful town with its forests, mountains and oceans...thus our décor is Mediterranean-themed, which also pays homage to the phenomenal bird-life in our pristine forests, hence the holding company name Pouli (Pooh-lee)-which is a beautiful Greek work for Bird! We would also like to set your mind at ease that all amenities are biodegradable and environmentally friendly, and our famous breakfasts are prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients...good for the environment, good for you! So ... to get noisy, long reaches, clashing forks, bumps, spills and friendship are all part of our process. They are the happy (and perhaps noisy) atmosphere us Greeks are well-known for, and we love to have our guests join in on our fun! We do hope that you enjoy this unique hospitable experience that we have to offer...our aim is after all, to make your stay as comfortable and relaxed as it can be, to allow you to unwind and return home with a warm smile when remembering us...and of course, to have you back every time you visit the beautiful town of Knysna! ... more   less
