Travellers' Choice
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.

Lovingly restored 1890 house with beautiful views overlooking Knysna. We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at this Guesthouse. Attention to detail throughout. Really good service. We were able to have dinner there as well as the breakfast we had booked for.

My husband and I spent Wednesday a fantastic evening with delicious food - in a warm and beautiful surrounding/atmosphere. If you get a chance to book a table there - just take the chance! It's the best food in town - as good as Ile de Pain, although a different style.

We have been coming to Falcons for a few years from the UK and now as SA residents the quality and comfort have remained five star throughout. The accommodation is always immaculate and the service is personal and top notch.
