This place was fantastic for us. The location is stunning looking out over the lagoon. We were in bungalow 23 which was huge for 2 people. We travelled with another couple and we would have been happy in one bungalow not two. It had two bedrooms. , 2 bathrooms, lounge, kitchen, car port, verandah . Weather was a bit cool but heaters and logs for fire provided. We choose to eat in the Bell pub and the food was fantastic and very reasonable.

Jeffrey was also very helpful on check in taking us to the bungalows. Jeffrey was also helpful at breakfast ( which again was fantastic) . Regular top ups of Fresh coffee, lovely jubbly! super !

Overall highly recommended

Stayed: October 2017, travelled as a couple

Shout out to Jeff - not sure if that man ever sleeps but he is so accommodating and friendly as are all the staff.

The location is perfect, 10 min drive to town centre. View of the lagoon and a beautiful pool.

We stayed in 29 one of the larger houses with 4 of us in one house. House was massive, Great amenities, a bit dated but I think they are fab.

The food on site is perfection - whoever makes the muffins and croissants deserves a medal. The bell pub is great for lunch.

Highly recommend this venue easy to beg to, lovely views, very quiet and lots to do nearby

Beautiful location with cottages located in the gardens

Excellent welcome & all the staff are superb, especially the larger than life "Mr Jeffrey Splendid" with his phrases at breakfast of "Fresh, lovely chubly, wunderbar & many more"

The accommodation is first class & don't miss the smallest pub in Knysna, The Bell which is near the main property

Would highly recommend

Lovely cottage.
Breakfast with a beautiful view.
Great pub for evening meals.
Very warm reception and service from Mr Jeffrey.
Good place for families.
Robberg peninsula great place for an all day walk - only take the long route if you have good walking shoes and are happy scrambling over rocks/cliffs - not recommended for children under 10. Take your binoculars - we saw seals, a sealion, a shark and lots of whales.
Whale watching trips in Plettenberg bay also recommended.
