One of the nicest guest houses we have ever stayed in . Stunning views from our suite and other rooms. Lovely courtyard where excellent breakfast was served. Owners were fantastic and couldn't have done more to make our stay very enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommended

What an absolute gem of a place. Fabulously located at the top of a hill, quite hidden away with breathtaking views over the lagoon (we were lucky enough to have one of their best suites) You’d go a long way to better the view here. The theme here is ‘treat the place as your home’ which is actively encouraged by the very lovely owner, Mark. Sadly his wife Adele was not there for us to meet on this occasion. Mark is extremely welcoming, warm and friendly with a wealth of knowledge of the area and the sort of guy you’d definitely want to meet again if you’re lucky enough. Breakfast is served outside on the terrace adjacent the pool and every attention to detail has been well thought out by what they serve you. A lovely bar area is available for you to help yourself to and it’s wonderful to be offered glasses of wine whilst relaxing by the beautiful pool on a lovely warm afternoon. Couldn’t recommend this top quality boutique hotel highly enough and we have every intention of visiting again in the not too distant future. Thanks Mark for your wonderful hosting.

Dear TracybF8474LL

What an amazing review - Thank you. What a pity you did not get to meet Adele and we sincerely hope that you do next time. The heated pool is a real guest favorite...... with a crisp glass of wine of course:)

We will look very forward to welcoming you back to Knysna and Kanonkop House.

Have a wonderful day and warmest regards.

This is a very very comfortable boutique hotel where it’s clear from the outset, your comfort is ‘the mission’. The hotel is located about 10 mins from the Knysna waterfront area, but our hosts Mark, Adele and their team ensured that a pretty much bespoke taxi service was available anytime we asked. Our room was luxuriously appointed and enjoyed a beautiful garden view. Breakfast was fresh and served with a smile and friendly catch up. We had a million questions re our visit to SA and Mark and Lisel (apologies if I misspelt that) knew everything and arranged restaurant bookings and a fab sunset cruise around the lagoon on a plush Cat with braai. We loved SA and this boutique hotel, the first of several on this trip, is very highly recommended. Thank You

Absolutely amazing experience from the moment you walk in to the moment you check out.
Nothing is ever to much for them and they are always their to help and assist with anything.
The outside area is amazing to sit around a fire and have a nice drink and chat between each other.
Everything is just spectacular

Wow - What an amazing place. The whole experience went beyond our expectations. The staff were so helpful and friendly and were happy to recommend restaurants etc, nothing was too much. The lovely gardens with a heated swimming pool was relaxing after a days sightseeing as was the bar/seating area which had the best views of the Knysna Heads you could hope for.
The rooms were ultra modern with plenty personal touches and ours had a super deck overlooking the pool.
The breakfast was served to your table, and as well as a continental selection a choice of cooked -( sweet and savoury) was offered - and all outside under a canopy/terrace.
