    Made very welcome by the new manageress. Lovely breakfast, and good clean rooms. Stayed here about 15 years ago and liked it then too! Just far enough away from the busy road to be nice and quiet at night.

    We experienced such friendly and hospitable service from understanding staff. The room was cosy and comfortable. Walking distance from the knysna waterfront makes it ideal!. The breakfast was also gourmet and first class !
