Excellent spacious rooms decorated beautifully with top finishes. Views that no pictures do justice to. But the reason you will go back are the owners who make you feel so welcome and special. Thank you Steve and Roeleen for making our anniversary weekend exceptional

Westhill Luxury Guest House proved to be the perfect place to stay for a relaxing getaway as well as a great base whilst exploring some of the attractions around Knysna.
Hosts Roeleen and Steve couldn't have done any more to help make our stay more memorable than it became and that was obvious from the moment we arrived and we received a complimentary welcome drink at the bar next to the pool area, where one could take a dip or just lie around on the sunbeds provided, and we received a full run down of all the facilities whilst getting to know our hosts a little better.
The Guest House is in an almost perfect location, on a quiet residential street with amazing views across the Knysna Lagoon to the Knysna Heads and the Indian Ocean, yet also only a few minutes walk into the town centre and the Waterfront.
Our room was modern, clean, airy and comfortable with a huge comfy bed, a choice of pillows, slippers, fluffy gowns, toiletries, tea & coffee facilities, sat tv alarm clock radio with usb points, air con and fan, safe and a full range of adaptors and plug sockets so gadgets could be used and charged, no matter which part of the world you'd come from.
Also, there is nothing worse than a buzzy old mini fridge which one finds in many b&b's but the owners have gotten around this by having one larger communal fridge stocked with a good selection of drinks which one could help oneself to 24/7 or store ones own drinks in.
The breakfast is served between 7.30 - 9.30 and all guests sit at a large round table where they can chat and get to know each other. A wide range of goodies can be had at breakfast including cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices, continental style or full English breakfasts, there was enough on offer, one could vary what one ate from day to day without getting bored of eating the same every day.
Breakfast was also the ideal chance to get some local knowledge and tips about places to go and explore and our hosts had some wonderful recommendations about restaurants where we could eat and drink in the evenings. They also had a lot of information on local attractions and were quite happy making reservations for us.
So Westhill proved to be the perfect place to stay during our visit to Knysna and we will surely be returning some day soon in the not to distant future!

Amazing rooms - super spacious bathroom with accessories. Loved the soft dressing gowns. Everything light, new and spotless. Extra comfy bed. Balcony offering great views over Knysna Lagoon. Easy off road parking. Nothing too much trouble for our helpful hostess. What more could you ask for. We'll be back. Thanks for everything Roeleen.
