Breakfasts were very good and although there is no restaurant right there, Catriona was a great resource for restaurants in the area. Pemby's and The Bell (pub) are 5-8 minute drive and excellent! The...

I stayed at Brenton Hill Guest House for the final week of a 3 month trip through Africa, which was the perfect ending to a perfect trip! The guest house is set in beautiful grounds with an incredibly stunning view over Knysna lagoon. It is perfectly placed for reaching all the sights in and around Knysna or just relaxing by...

The guest house is approached up a quiet road winding over the hilltop before entering the drive when the extent of the single-storey building first comes into view overlooking the broad expanse of the lagoon. We were warmly welcomed by Catriona and her husband, Andy, who had brought their two young children from the UK to make a new life...

We arrived to see friendly smiles and a totally breath taking view. Our room was clean, fresh and spacious. Nothing was too much trouble for our wonderful hosts and we will struggle to find a better spot than next to the sparkling pool to enjoy an ice cold drink. Magical - we will be back.
