We enjoyed our stay. It was comfortable. The room was nice and big and the bathroom was the right size. We like the little box in the bathroom with all the toiletries in it. Breakfast was good with excellent service.

The rooms are large with an outdoor space, and with a fantastic view over Knysna lagoon. The Overmeer is about 3 or 4 Km from Knysna waterfront and center, so you need a car. The rooms could have been more clean. Very good breakfast.
