We were given a wonderful welcome. Our room was well equipped and very comfortable. Excellent advice was given on restaurants, places of interest and golf courses. Nothing was too much trouble. Knysna is one of the safest and most beautiful places on the Garden Route and Armadillo Studios ,with Marion and David as hosts, is the very best place at...

My husband and I stayed at Armadillo studios for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon and had an incredible time. Knysyna is a beautiful town with so much to see and do and this is the perfect base from which to explore the area. From our arrival we were warmly welcomed by our hosts Marion and David with a...

Armadillo Studios is exactly what we look for in B&B/Self-catering accommodation: quiet location, private accommodation, wonderful hosts and all the necessary amenities. We stayed for 3 nights in Studio 3, which was perfect for us. The studio had everything required for self-catering (microwave, kettle, stove, fridge) but it is some of the 'nice touches' that set Armadillo apart. The garden...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the super-friendly hosts of Armadillo studios, Mr and Ms Mack. We arrived so late because we had a tyre burst on our way there and we were dirty (and very weary). However, they treated us with care and compassion, we shared our ridiculous and somewhat outrageous views on the FIFA World Cup, amongst others,...

We stayed for 5 nights in the largest of the studios and could not have been more satisfied. Everything about Armadillo is well thought through - Marion and David seem to have the knack of understanding what makes good accommodation excellent. As hosts, nothing is too much for them, and, whilst the studios are part of their own home, this...

As with most of the accommodation we booked along the garden route, the service of Marion and David was second to none. Both know and understand what service and attention to detail is all about and we were made to feel extremely welcome in their home and guesthouse. Breakfast was fantastic, as were the very spacious rooms. The pool looked...

We really enjoyed our stay at Armadillo studios. We were a family of four in one studio and my parents were in another studio. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The gardens were beautiful, pool lovely and there was a really nice area to barbeque. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I...

Excellent accommodation, beautiful garden and pool, great attention to detail and hosts who really understand and deliver what guests really want. Almost reluctant to write this review in case we find it difficult to book in future! Marion and David deserve every success.

From the first moment, we felt totally at ease with our hosts, Marion and David who could not have been more helpful. For our 12 day stay they booked all our golf, advised us on restaurants and outings even down to finding a masseuse for a back problem! Our accommodation was spacious, beautifully presented and spotless with daily room service....

“All units looked fantastic, there are three and all are different sizes. I had the smallest unit (it is still big) which is perfect for two people. The bigger units have a kitchen so if you want to do your own cooking then you would need to go for them.”
