50'th Birthday Celebration

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Aug 2022
We celebrated my 50’th birthday at the Butterfly Blu and Brenton Haven recently.

And what a celebration it was!
The venue was spectacular, and the catering was out of this world.

From day one, Johlanda and her team was extremely organized, and the pre-event arrangements was timeous and from an excellent quality and standard. Johlanda (and my wife) arranged everything in detail, quite a task if an event is held in Brenton and you are resident in Polokwane.

On the day of the event, everything went smoothly, with no hitches whatsoever. The venue and catering were 100% spot-on. The bar staff, kitchen staff and waiters (Teenage and his team) were friendly, fast, and efficient. It takes quite a lot for any venue to deliver 50+ perfectly prepared steaks all at one time. Not one of our guests complained in any way or manner about any food, drinks, or service. Our guests were catered for in detail, from persons with allergies to persons with other food preferences (vegetarians and vegans).

As most of our guests were from other provinces, most guests also made use of the Brenton Haven hotel, and once again not a single guest was disappointed in any of the hotel or facilities. The group discount offered for event guests, also made the accommodation very reasonably priced and our guests were indeed impressed by both the Butterfly Blu restaurant and the Brenton Haven hotel.

It was an absolute pleasure to host my celebration at the Butterfly Blu and I will recommend the use of the Butterfly Blu and Brenton Haven for any occasion or event.
If I had to score my whole experience, I will score it 10 out of 10.

I wish to heartfully thank the whole of the Butterfly Blu and Brenton Haven team, with what can only be described as a once in a lifetime, extremely successful birthday celebration.

What a memorable family experience, well equiped and modern self catering units. Even in winter. Excellent support service from friendly staff. Amazing, panoramic ocean views and unspoilt coastline walks to Buffelsbaai. Perfect for exploring Knysna and local surroundings by car.

The view and the accommodation were on point. It is also in a quiet area so there is not much traffic or people.

The beach is also amazing and is very long so you can have a nice walk every morning.

Will definitely go back.

Room tip: Central to most activities you would like to do in Knysna

We had popped into Brenton Haven in January 2022 while in the area for a wedding and I decided I wanted to come for a break.

We booked for a week in April and it was the best decision.

The room was spectacular with wonderful sea views. I am very fussy and hard to please and am happy to say I had nothing to criticize whatsoever.

The service was exceptional, the staff were always smiling, joking and willing to do anything to please or assist.

Nothing was too much of an effort, the restaurant serves exceptional cuisine which we enjoyed thoroughly.

Overall a wonderful experience and we plan to come back again soon.

We cannot heap more praise to this ideally located gem.

Let me state that Brenton on sea is beautiful - picturesque views, amazing beachfront and lovely community. Brenton Haven is also quite nice but certainly not worth the price of over R3k a night.

Negatives
Website sells the rooms as beach views. Units 38 and 39 have only partial views from the patio.
Rooms have no Aircons or fans. They did bring some when we requested
Bathrooms are extremely small
TV never worked despite them trying to fix it
No Netflix
Lighting in the unit is poor
Bedding is very old - pillows are completely flat
Garage could not open

Positives
Nice pool
Towels provided.

I think for the price this place is not worth it. Stay away.
