Falcons View Manor is a small Boutique Hotel on Thesen Hill in Knysna. Spectacular Views from the Victorian Veranda across the lagoon and through the magnificent Knysna Heads, beautiful garden and a small dining room. Located atop a hill, less than 1km from the vibrancy of the town, Falcons View Manor is the ideal base from which to explore everything that Knysna and the surrounding area has to offer. Or you could stay in and enjoy the generous, homely atmosphere of the unique, intimate hotel. Check your emails at the guests’ computer or via free WiFi after breakfast, unwind at the sparkling pool or enjoy a quiet read in one of the comfortable lounges. Have a light lunch in the beautiful tea garden before taking a stroll through the lush, well-manicured gardens. Sip a sundowner while appreciating the stunning views from the Victorian veranda, then enjoy a delicious dinner at the restaurant – with a special bottle of wine from the cellar. Close off the evening with a nightcap at the bar before heading to the comfort of your en-suite room.

We stayed at the Manor in January 2022, for 7 nights. The property is located, up the hill, about 1km walking distance from the main road. While this is farther from the waterfront than some other hotels, its location offers superior views. The view of the sunset from the balcony is splendid. Be sure to have a drink on the decks overlooking the lagoon at the appropriate time. Two, or maybe three, of the rooms also have this lagoon view. The rooms are spacious, well maintained and stocked with everything you may need; including a hairdryer, gowns and extra blankets. Our coffee station was stocked with fresh crunchies every 2 days or so, Lindt chocolate daily and a fresh bottle of water each morning. Room service is efficient and trustworthy. They also offer reliable laundry services for a fee. The food, both the included breakfast and the optional dinner, is tasty. More importantly, they are very flexible in catering for your needs. My wife has food allergies and Danelle and Sue went out of their way to accommodate her. We were truly grateful for that. The general service at the Falcons View Manor is outstanding. I found that they are willing to assist with almost anything. They helped us with bookings for activities, advice on what to do, area maps, cooler bags and even keeping some of our food in the refrigerator. If... No 'when'... I go to Knysna again I will not hesitate to stay here again. 5 green dots from me!
