We spent 3 nights at Brenton Haven Beachfront Resort during our South Africa trip. The hotel is located directly on the beach of Brenton-on-Sea and about 15 minutes by car from Knysna. Each suite offers a well equipped kitchen, a spacious living room and several bedrooms. We ourselves stayed in suite 4 directly above the main building. The large terrace offered a fantastic view of the miles long beach. The beds were also very comfortable. The gym is a bit outdated, but still offers a wide range of equipment. We could also enjoy the heated pool every day. The hotel's own restaurant was very good and therefore recommendable. The self-catering approach offered many advantages (e.g. the very cheap washing of the clothes) but unfortunately also a disadvantage that takes getting used to (e.g. cleaning only every three days (otherwise for an extra charge), no hand soap). The always helpful and very friendly staff should be emphasized.

We enjoyed our days extremely in the resort and therefore I can highly recommend Brenton Haven!

Rooms very comfortable and beds are excellent. Food at the restaurant is excellent quality is fantastic. Would really recommend and free WiFi in the room is a plus. Rooms are neat and have all the amenities you would expect to have. Rooms are only cleaned every second day, but fireplace is cleaned daily. Views are something else, you just want to sit outside and watch the sea all day. Would highly recommend this establishment to friends and family.

We visited Brenton Haven from 22-24 Feb 2022 & stayed in room/suite 3 . The booking & check in process was easy & efficient. Front desk staff were always friendly. The best part about this resort is definately the views & hearing the waves all night long. From the Resort Reception it is around 200m down a walkway & you on a lovely beach , clean & nice soft sand. There are public restrooms which were always clean. The beach was safe & very seldom free of a few people. One is able to swim , to the right of Castle Rock but I suggest being wary of the cross currents if you not an able swimmer.

The room was really modern , clean & had everything we needed. There was an outside covered braai which we used a few times with seating to eat outdoors. Only gripe & reason for 4 rating was the smell from the bath/basin drains which was attended to promptly but not completely sorted out.

There are 2 restaurants on site , 1 where you can have breakfast that opens at 8am & the other opens later & stays open a bit later as well . We did not dine at either but they were popular with external guests as well.

The Resort also has a pool & gym on site , gym is quite big & has all the basic necessities for a good workout.

Had a very good experience & loved the setting & proximity to the beach . About 6km outside of Knysna town

First, as you approach the hotel on the cliff top you have an amazing view of the bay. Then your first impression of the hotel is its cleanliness.

The reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the suites spacious, well equipped with wonderful sea views.

The reception staff provide excellent advice on the local scenic views and forest walks.

Their are even steps direct from you own balcony direct onto the beach.

Its a fifteen minute drive to the ferry which takes you to the Kysna Heads a trip not to be missed.

We were visiting from the UK and enjoyed both the hotel and the area.

Did a last minute booking when we arrived to eat breakfast a the restaurant. Pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the suite. I was expecting just a room, but this was so lovely that we were disappointed that we were only staying one night. Will definitely be back. The staff are friendly and really helpful.
