Excellent accomodation in a beautiful area with a wide range of activities available. Owners Joyce and Graham Greenwood were very attentive and knowledgeable and they were ably assisted by their friendly staff who helped serve superb breakfasts. Good range of restaurants available at Knysna waterfront with easy parking. Allow at least three days in Knysna.
