We stayed in the family unit and it was very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly (shout out to Herbert!). No cooking utilities, but the staff kindly brought us a cutting knife and some big plates when we requested. Can definitely recommend this spot!

Very nice property, clean and neat with an awesome view. We also enjoyed the pool. Unit was great for 6 and we will definitely stay there again. Great value for money. A friendly suggestion: To explicitly state that the unit is not equipped for self catering as one's first thought of such a unit is 'self catering'. A small 2 plate stove and 6 of each cutlery & crockery is all that is needed to 'upgrade' the property. Would have liked to have the ability to have a braai - there is ample space to add a dedicated braai area next to this unit.

Excellent rooms and very clean, check in was professional and friendly. Only reason for the rating of 4, was that due to Covid no breakfast was available, but I was advised that they were going to start serving the next week.

This has become my new favorite place to stay in Knysna! While the accommodation is affordable, the breakfast is excellent, the views are spectacular, the rooms are big and comfortable with a classy elegance and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

We had an awesome trip. We were upgraded to a 5* guesthouse, Somervreug🙂. Ludwig and Riëtte were the best hosts. The staff was very friendly. Everything was just perfect. The view from our room was breathtaking. I will definitely go back there.
