It's a great place to stay. Cecil is always giving you great advices where to go and enjoy the city. the breakfast next to the pool is awesome and the rooms are clean and with nice space. great location close to the watefront. I really recomend this guest house.

Room Tip: Second floor are the one with the best view.

Hello Eduardo

Thank you for taking the time to do the review on your stay with us at Hide Away Guest House. It is indeed a pleasure for us to receive positive comments from our guests and know that they have left us after enjoying our hospitality and the beautiful town we live in.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Kind regards
Cecil & Colleen

What's not to love? truly a lovely place to stay. Knysna is stunning! it is one of the more expensive stops along the garden route but you'll understand why when you there. My wife and I really loved the very large rrom we stayed in and would highly recommend Hide Away for couples looking for a spacious room that's super private.

Hello there Clint

Good to hear from you again! We hope you enjoyed the wedding you were attending after leaving us.

Thank you for taking the time out to do the review on your stay with us - it is most appreciated. We know that these days, time is precious but good reviews certainly assist us in attracting new business to Hide Away.

We hope to see you back in Knysna, for longer than 1 night, in the not too distant future. Maybe you should investigate coming down to the Oyster Festival on a "gig".

Chat again soon.

Kind regards
Cecil & Colleen

Corrine and Cecil were our hosts for our one day stay in Knysna. Being welcomed in person by Corrine was a delight and once we were shown our room she sat with us and learned about our needs and wants whilst in the area. She informed us of many things to do and places to visit of which we did and all of which were fantastic. Our room was great and with super sized bath sheets and white cotton bedding. There was a mini bar in the room with reasonably priced wine and beers. A large spacious room which attended all our needs with complimentary bathroom products. Eating breakfast on the veranda was also lovely as it overlooked the sea. We left after our one night stay but decided to book a few days later and we're delighted when Corrine upgraded our room to the suite which was absolutely stunning. We have made new friends in South Africa of which I'm sure we will stay in touch . Don't miss out on visiting this very special place .

We stayed for three days and would have liked to stay longer, but our schedule didn't allow us to do so. Very helpful, friendly and hospitable hosts, alway ready to help.
And then the breakfast, it was super!!

Very warm welcome from Colin and Colleen. Given an upgrade to our room which was a great surprise. Room very large clean and a comfortable bed , nice size en suite, room has all you need including a mini bar and fridge. The room had a lovely verandah where you could have breakfast as an option which is a lovely touch and much appreciated. Great view over the Knysna river and the Heads. Breakfast excellent cooked by Cecil and served by Colleen. The Hide Away is close to the town and all the nearby attractions and restaurants. Colleen has an extensive knowledge of places to visit and great recommendations for places to eat , we ate at JJ's , Sirocco and the East Head cafe and all three were excellent. The only problem is that the Hide Away is close to the main road so it might be a problem for light sleepers but the noise does drop considerable at night. Would I stay here again definitely.

Stayed: January 2017

Hello Tim

Thank you so much for taking the time to do the review on your stay with us earlier this month.

We have found that reviews are just so incredibly important these days as most of our guests check the reviews before making the decision to book and stay.

Since your departure we have a little bit of rain but could do with a whole lot more. Obviously this does not go down well with the international travellers but today is a bright and sunny day!

We hope that you are planning to return to South Africa and obviously Knysna and Hide Away Guest House at some time in the future!

Keep healthy and well.

Kind regards
Cecil & Colleen
