Hidden behind the many walls of this gracious Victorian Manor House, and former boarding house, perched high on a hill above the Knysna CBD and overlooking the lagoon, is a slickly run guest house managed by Richard & Wendy. Check-in was quick and easy, thanks to the on-line Knightsbridge booking platform. The accommodation, my single room with three-quarter bed at any rate, was well appointed and comfortable. The menu at breakfast, served between 7:00 & 9:00, was extensive with table service overseen by both Richard & Wendy. A pleasant, comfortable stay. Thank you!
