After a long drive from Cape Town, we reached Knysna as the sun was setting and it felt like we were visiting some friends at their mansion.
Kate welcomed us to the B&B upon our arrival and showed us to our room. She was warm friendly and suggested several nice restaurants for dinner. I saw that the ladies own several cute dogs but we weren't able to interact with them as they were kept in the residence.
The room was relatively large and the attached toilet was of a good sized.
Breakfast was served in the main dining area a short walk down from the rooms.
You will need a car to access the centre of Knysna from the Double Dutch.
I would recommend this delightful B&B helmed by the friendly Dutch ladies!
