    The breakfast was exceptionally good and beautifully presented. The breakfast buffet included a wide selection of meats, cheeses and fresh fruits - some quite exotic. Hot dishes were also cooked to order. We were so impressed that we photographed the buffet display! The accommodation was spacious, well maintained and provided stunning views over Knysna town and lagoon. The bed was comfortable and the facilities were spotless.

    We found nothing to complain about. Franz and Mandi were the perfect hosts.

    The manageress, Mandy, was lovely. She made us feel very welcome. We appreciated the effort made to provide gluten free options. Breakfast, especially the presentation and the variety of fruit, was very good.

    The parking was a bit tricky as we have a very low car. No aircon in the room, but there was a fan

    This is a great place to stay, right in the middle of Knysna. It gave a fantastic view of the city and it offered some of the most amazing sights from the peak of the beautiful town. The staff are beyond friendly. Such a lovely bunch. The breakfast was nice and balanced.

    We were travelling with two dogs and the garden was a little far from our room. We didn’t expect to share the terrace with others. From the pictures we thought we had our own piece that was privately ours. There is a room that leads into the garden but we were apparently too late for it. If not traveling with pets, this should not be an issue.
