The overall trip was okay, although the cold weather conditions made our stay very uncomfortable, the rooms were very cold, the panel heaters did not help much. There were two panel heaters, one in the main bedroom and the other in the lounge but you could only use one at a time due to only one plug provided for both,...

We stayed here two nights in April with our family of 5 and 2 grandparents. We had a chalet for our family which fit all of us very comfortably and was well cared for and equipped. My parents stayed in a cozy cabin for 2 people with views (cabin 10). There was only a fridge and microwave, but you could...

We really enjoyed our stay! We stayed in the couples cottages for two nights. The couples cottage is smallish (perfect for a couple) but had all the things one needs and was really close to the beach, restaurants and shop. Brenton itself is very close to Knysna and Buffels bay and is a great place to use as a base...

Stayed for 2 nights in a single bedroom cottage. Had everything we needed for a lovely stay, cottage was very clean and staff very friendly. The location and views at Brenton on Sea are also perfect for a relaxed stay!

Practical but small cabin for 2. Our cabin overlooked a working shed with all renovation tools etc and cottage furniture and appliances dumped there, very unsightly and took away some peace and quiet we were looking for.

Good day, We apologize for the inconvenience during your stay. Normally the working shed is locked without a lot of activity. We completed the upgrades of 3 cabins since the 7th of March and we had to make space for storing the furniture, so it was definitely busier and close to the cabin you've occupied. Three of our cabins are...

Reception was friendly and helpful, and the cottage was very pleasant and well equipped. The only disappointment was that we did not have quite the sea view we expected; the cottages are not quite 'on the beach' - you need to walk a few hundred meters to get that full coastal view, rather than being able to enjoy it with...

Excellent place to stay and good value for money. On departure I booked to stay for 2 weeks in December 2017. Lovely facilities and enjoyed viewing and hearing the ocean. Pleasure to deal with the staff from the booking office to the room staff.
