Positive Reviews

Breathtaking views

The spectacular view from the patio and large windows is something guests say they will never forget. They mention that, not only can they can see the whole of Knysna, but also the entire lagoon up to the Knysna Heads leading into the ocean. They also mention that the views are just as amazing from the breakfast area in the mornings.

Stunning communal area

From the moment guests arrive, they notice the modern decor and lovely homely touches in the huge lounge area with unique African decor. They enjoy relaxing here where they can catch up with fellow travellers and enjoy a refreshing drink.

A breakfast to remember

The breakfast is said to be superb with a great many healthy options included as well. It's fresh, delicious and well presented according to visitors, who admire the awesome selection of fruits, freshly baked breads, and good variety of cheeses.

Negative Reviews

Parking is a challenge

Since the guest house is located on a hill, visitors find that on-site parking has to be negotiated very carefully. It's quite steep, with the result that they don't always get into the parking after the first try, and often end up having to give it another go.

No air conditioning

Especially during the warm summer months, travellers miss not having an air-conditioning unit in their rooms. They find it often gets rather hot and stuffy, and although there is a fan available, it doesn't cool things down as effectively as they would like.
