    We had the most wonderful stay at this Guest House with its old world charm and tranquil location and great view. We had a lovely large room with double aspect windows and a large shared balcony with another room. There are only three rooms to let so this makes for a nice quiet stay. The shared breakfast experience with other guests in the mornings was nice and the breakfast itself was excellent. The owners are truly delightful people who looked after us very well and on some days you felt you just wanted to chat and get to know them better. The location of the Guest House is great and we ate out in the evenings though there was shared kitchen facilities we could have used. We definitely want to go back.

    It is hard to find anything we didn't like.

    We have stayed here before and we’re so pleased to be able to stay again (in fact we planned our entire holiday around it). This visit was even better than the last, if that is possible. Turning Tides is a real gem, a beautiful house with spotless facilities and Ian and Joan are the perfect hosts. Sadly, but understandably, they have decided to stop cooking their excellent breakfasts and make the rooms self-catering, but we would not think of staying anywhere else in Knysna. We will certainly be visiting again.
