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.

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.

Stunning location looking across to Thesen Island. The staff are fantastic. Breakfast was very good. Their restaurant is open 5 nights a week, and we would certainly recommend eating here. The locals are very friendly. Great golf courses within the area. I need to bring my golf clubs next time🤣

The excellent service started the minute we arrived with Danielle the manager greeting us and offering us refreshments on the beautiful terrace overlooking Thesen Island. The property is stunning and was built by The Thesen family, a full history can be obtained at the hotel. To say it was 5 star isn’t good enough it was 6 star. Stunning garden, breakfast on the terrace with care taken to ensure no flies went on the food. ( a pet hate and concern of mine) We were tired and decided to eat at the hotel and it was the right decision quality food cooked to perfection. Don’t hesitate to book.

Beautiful accommodation - very large and luxurious rooms. Excellent breakfast and welcoming hosts. The view from the balcony is superb and we enjoyed the garden and the pool. We had to cancel our last night’s accommodation due to unforeseen circumstances but they refunded us in full when the room was rebooked. Very slick service.

Falcons View Manor is a very charming and romantic boutique hotel situated above Knysna with a marvelous view over the beautiful city, Thesen’s Island, and the lagoon. The ‘Waterfront’ is only an easy 20 minutes’ walk (approx. 1,5 km). Our room was very tastefully designed with a well-equipped coffee bar, large bathroom, and separate toilette. Breakfast leaves no wish unfulfilled, dinner very delicious, sundowner on the terrace just marvelous. Above all very attentive and warm manager and her staff! We had four wonderful days at this Manor embedded in its very well kept beautiful tropical garden.

From the welcoming to saying goodbye everything was excellent! Very nice, helpful and friendly people! We had the most spectacular view over Knysna and the Bay and at the backside of the house a beautiful garden with swimming pool. We loved staying in this peaceful place.

Great location overlooking the Bay of Knysna. Sitting in the cosy chairs on the terrace, drinking a sun downer and enjoying the view. Excellent food with different daily menues, super breakfast in the garden. Don't get surprised while driving to the old villa as the way is a bit steep and the roads look really local. Surpisingly the property is well developed and secure. Remembers me a bit about the old cotton farmhouses/ manors in South Corolina, US.

Stayed for one night local to us as a ‘date night’ to take advantage of childcare at home. Spacious room, amazing food and attentive staff. Big thank you to Daniele who was a great hostess. We will be back.

Beautiful traditional hotel with wonderful staff. Our room (garden superior) was very spacious, beautifully decorated with a lovely terrace area. The bed was the most comfortable we had throughout the garden route. We ate dinner at the hotel on our first night and the meal was excellent. The hosts were friendly and very informative about the surrounding area. They even gave us some recommendations for the next town we were visiting in respect of things to do and places to eat and all recommendations were excellent - just wish we could have stayed at this hotel longer.
