We're from JHB and decided to go celebrate my partners birthday in Knysna. In the planning phase of our trip, I made several calls to enquire about shuttle services, an itinerary of things to do there and Nolo was our contact there. She sent through contact details, a very detailed list of things to do, she made great recommendations and was very helpful.
Our flight arrived very early and we weren't sure what to do with our time because we wanted to change, grab a bite to eat before commencing with our plans for our trip. So I phoned Brenton to see if we can check in early and they were so accommodative, we spoke to Nolo and she said it was okay. To our surprise, they then decided to upgrade our room as a kind gesture for the birthday boy. We managed to grab a bite to eat at the restaurant (may I add how spectacular the views are). We finished eating and went on with our plans.
The next day. on my partners birthday, we went Whale watching and town touring, upon our return, Nolo had organized some bubbles for us and it was chilling in the ice bucket, they went out of their way to do a birthday card for my partner and I could see how that really made his evening so much better.
We appreciate this kind of service and I would love to go visit again, and hopefully the weather will be on it's best behavior.
When you go visit Brenton Haven, just know you'll be in good hands.
Everyone is friendly and helpful.
Top notch service!

My wife and I had an amazing time at the exquisite, tranquil and beautiful Brenton Haven just outside Knysna. The luxury apartment overlooking the ocean is just stunning! We have enjoyed normal hotels and also some other self catering places, but this is just in a class of its own. We could relax, sleep in, walk on the beach, go for a swim, have a great meal at their restaurant Blu, but also enjoy activities in and around Knysna- there’s so much to do! The highlight for us was the trip on the Ocean Sailing Charters luxury yacht that takes you through the Knysna heads into the open ocean- what an experience! We can absolutely recommend a stay at Brenton Haven.

This was our 4th holiday at Brenton Haven and it just seems to get better each time. The staff always make us feel special and go out of their way to help us.
We've been there so often that it's starting to feel like home. It's a great place!
I would definitely recommend Brenton Haven to family and friends.

Great staff, great customer interaction. The staff is always willing to go an extra mile to ensure your stay is memorable.
We definitely coming back again, no doubt.

Just one thing.
The office room next to the units tends to compromise the privacy of the guests whilst walking to their units.
The office can either be moved to another place where they’ll be minimum visibility or alternatively the office can have tinted windows so as guests cannot see what’s happening inside the office.

Either than that, the place is amazing. We had an amazing private dinner organised by one the receptionists who kept in contact with us before our arrival.

Thanks

Brenton Haven is a real haven for family. It's built at a picturesque beach with a vast expanse of sand punctuated by rocks and green mountains.
The place itself is well maintained, extremely clean and has staff that go out of their way to make you comfortable. The restaurant serves a top notch menu and Martin deserves special mention. Will definitely stay there again.

I had a wonderful stay at Brenton Haven...the place is very neat, modern and well sitiuated with amazing sea views. At this excellent hotel you see and hear the sea waves which makes this hotel a must see. The staff was attentive to all our needs and kept us updated at all times. I made a mistake with my booking dates and this hotel sorted that mistake within a few minutes upon arrival. Reception was very welcoming, keep up the good work!This was very professional and on point..... I must say thank you to the Manager Owen, great chat and thank you for enquiring about our stay which was Great!

The rooms were large and comfortable with amazing views of the ocean and its dolphins. the kitchen and braai area had everything we needed to make our meals.

My family and I had an amazing experience at the resort. Very professional and caring staff across all the departments, from the highly professional Noli at the reception, to the amazing team in the restaurant. Our Superior two bedroom beach villa was very clean, well equipped and was made warm prior to our arrival on a very cold evening. That was so amazing. Every member of the team is a true ambassador for the brand. Thank you All. We can't wait to return. Mpho

We had popped into Brenton Haven in January 2022 while in the area for a wedding and I decided I wanted to come for a break.

We booked for a week in April and it was the best decision.

The room was spectacular with wonderful sea views. I am very fussy and hard to please and am happy to say I had nothing to criticize whatsoever.

The service was exceptional, the staff were always smiling, joking and willing to do anything to please or assist.

Nothing was too much of an effort, the restaurant serves exceptional cuisine which we enjoyed thoroughly.

Overall a wonderful experience and we plan to come back again soon.

We cannot heap more praise to this ideally located gem.

Johan and I spent 9 glorious days at Brenton Haven. Accommodation,
Restaurant and Staff were fantastic.
Special shout out to Karen, Nkosi and Nolo. Thanks so much for taking such great care of us.
The only suggestion I would make is to ensure that the gym and swimming pool doors are never left open. We r given access keys for those entry points and only guests should be able to access these.
This is our second visit to Brenton haven and we will most certainly be back!!!
