Amazing and very attentive staff! Spacious rooms, very clean and freshly renovated bathrooms. It’s a place where you can feel like in a fairytale! There is nothing to criticize! Just perfect! Thanks to the staff who made our vacation even better than planned/expected! P.s. The nature in the area is also breathtaking!

Was quite surprised by this little hidden gem! Amazing staff, neat, tidy and very spacious rooms and incredible attention to detail. The pool was absolute bliss to sit and spend lazy afternoons in the sun. Don’t think there could have been a better spot in Knysna to stay for a week (and wish it could be longer). Jan Hendrik, Albert and the rest of your team members - thank you for a very enjoyable stay and making it so comfortable! Can only hope to visit you all again soon!

Must be honest I wasn’t expecting much. But was blown away from the word go. Stunning lush lawn overlooking the Lagoon (with swimming pool). Albert received us so friendly and professionally in the coziest of reception lounges. Room interior to die for. Aircon DSTV Minibar fully stocked! Big and luxurious. Was not expecting this at the price we paid. Restaurant / bar on site. Will definitely be back!

Hotel was great, room was a good size with A/C and a fan and Plenty of storage. Breakfast had a good choice so did the day menu which Is seems to be all cooked fresh. Albert and his team Were attentive to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Finally, the garden is lovely and it was a nice change to have a pool to dip in due to the water shortage in the region. Our only negative point was to have more coathangers in the wardrobe and the kitchen ran out of lemons for G&T.

The guesthouse is located in amazing garden with a view of the lagoon, approx. 2mins drive from Knysna waterfront. Our room was very big and bed was very comfy. The whole gueshouse is in a old English style which add so much charm to the stay. Bathroom was spacious, had both bath and a walk in shower. Loungers at the pool are super comfortable and towels are provided. Breakfast was served at the terrace overlooking the garden and lagoon. Staff was very welcoming and friendly.
