This was a basic B&B, with a good location in Knysna. The place was kept clean and simple. There were no frills here, and as others have said, the decor could use some updating. The rooms were comfortable, and relatively spacious. Nothing special, but I cannot pinpoint anything I found grossly wrong. The TV was a bit small (like 12 inches or something). I liked the location in Knysna, as it was tucked in a plaza that had several good restaurants. It was centrally located to walk on the main road.
The bathrooms were very basic and a little small. The bathroom had french doors that did not close well. I was traveling with a male friend and it was a bit awkward when one of us had to shower or use the toilet.
There was free parking, no wireless internet. Breakfast was basic but included - 2 eggs cooked to order with bacon and toast, and a table laid out with cereal, some cheese, juice, and some fruit. The lady who was working in the morning was friendly and spent a considerable amount of time helping me make arrangements to go paragliding. When she realized she misquoted the price, she made the booking for me foregoing her commission with the paragliding company.
