Room was amazing with a view you would want to wake up to every morning for the rest of your life. Steve and Roeleen are the most helpful and friendly hosts you could wish for. Full of information about the local area's history and the best places to visit and eat. Breakfast was excellent with every option you could possibly require to set you up for the day and all cooked fresh to order. My personal favourite was the 'Welcome Drink' in the pool bar area after we had settled in. Will most definitely be visiting this excellent guest house again.

This was by far the best guesthouse during our trip. Very clean, modern and spacious. Breakfast was great as well. Roeleen and Steve went out of their way to help with anything and made us feel right at home. Will definitely come back!

2 nights was not long enough at this property. Friendly hosts Steve and Roleen were full of suggestions and advice. The restaurant recommendations were super and fully delivered, O Pesacador being a firm favourite for next time. Rooms were superbly appointed and spacious. Nothing was forgotten. All topped off with comfy beds and quality linens. An easy stroll into town and it’s many dining options.

Stayed for two nights. The owners Roeléén & Steve were very helpful and friendly. We very much enjoyed having beer and wine with them on both afternoons in their outside bar area. Nice gardens and swimming pool. Our room was modern, large, extremely clean and well furnished with views of the lagoon. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good, prepared fresh to order. WiFi was very good.

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.

Beautifull guest house in a very nice town. Very warm welcome by Roeléén who makes sure that her guests have a great time. Lots of things to do in this area, like whale watching. Several golf courses nearby.
