Double Dutch B & B
Ranked #1 of 129 Knysna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 June 2017

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!

Room Tip: maybe away from the main dining area?

From the moment we entered the property of double Dutch it felt like a warm bed. Kate and Nathalie are really friendly and helpful hosts. There is a lot of privacy in an lovely, clean, well designed B&B. When you want to know something about knysna and environment they can tell you a lot and give you good advices. really a top accomodation with a top management.

Simply perfect! The room, the location, the view and especially our hosts Kate and Nathalie. They were very helpful and know the best places to go in the area. We stayed 4 nights; we wish we had more time to spend here. So we will be back soon!

In April 2017 we stayed three days at the wonderfull DD B&B. Both ladies who run this place our perfect hosts seving their guest with a lot of useful information about visits on great locations in the area. Their brand new lodges are comfortable and very clean and the maintenance on their property borders to perfection. Great view on the bay, beautiful pool, of course to cold for us in April. We really recommend this place to every passenger passing the garden route.
