We needed a breakaway from the 'rat race' and the time spent at Brenton Haven Beachfront Resort was better than expected. The self catering units are very well equipped and the resorts amenities are of a high standard. We will be back in the not so distant future.....

The hotel and staff were fantastic and the seaside was amazing. Even though the weather didn't play along the break was so worthwhile. The time spent at Brenton Haven Beachfront Resort was better than expected. The self catering units are very well equipped and the resorts amenities are of a high standard. We will be back in the not so distant future. It made our 25th wedding anniversary memorable

We just spent three nights at Brenton Haven and absolutely loved our stay. The unit (24) was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. The unit is also serviced daily. A comfortable bed, lovely couch and occasional chairs and a really well equipped kitchen, with a lovely patio and braai. We were able to walk to the restaurant and back for breakfast and dinner and the restaurant (Butterfly Blu) is outstanding. I have written a separate review for that. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and we had a really nice relaxed stay. The views are spectacular and everything is very well run and well managed. I would highly recommend this for a happy and relaxed stay.

We just spend a week at Brenton Resort and we loved it! We had a spacious villa that was clean and comfortable with the most beautiful views. The inverter during load-shedding was a nice surprise. The staff at the hotel were friendly and always helpful . Will definitely recommend to everyone.

Booked a 3 night breakaway for my partner and I. The 1 bed suite is amazing for a couple looking to relax, unwind and reset away from the bustle of the daily grind. We didn't want to leave! The views are breathtaking and the benefit of the suite is a spacious bedroom and bathroom incl. a soaking tub. Kitchenette equipt with essentials and a lovely braai and deck area. Convenient access to the beach as well.

I spent a night with my son and we had the most fabulous time, lovely friendly staff, clean and spacious units. The location is perfect for days on the beach. Nicely equipped with a gym and heated pool which was such a treat for my son who loves swimming and could swim mid winter. I would highly recommend for a quality family break away from it all...

What a memorable family experience, well equiped and modern self catering units. Even in winter. Excellent support service from friendly staff. Amazing, panoramic ocean views and unspoilt coastline walks to Buffelsbaai. Perfect for exploring Knysna and local surroundings by car.

Great Views - Beautifully decorated, 2 bedrooms. Staff went beyond what was required and always had a smile on their faces. The terrace had a lovely braai area with a view of the bay. We had a lovely time.

Our family booked ages ago, and leading up to our stay we were quite nervous due to the pandemic circumstances. The team at Brenton Haven went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was a pleasurable one. Thank you Team Brenton Haven !

Nice bed, view shower, bath. Clean. Will go again. Wi Fi very slow or off all the time. Fridge and freezer very small. Deli shop and restaurant very expensive and absolutely no value for money. Restaurant food is average.
