Synopsis (Overall + Value)
Fantastic and big rooms, lovely owners, decent breakfast, decent price, car parking and some peace and quiet. Would DEFINITELY stay here again - our best B&B along the Garden Route.
5-10minutes drive from Knysna central. We were initially sceptical as we like to stay close to where the action is, but this peaceful location was very much what we needed. The property itself is fantastic, there is free, secure parking, and the rooms are lovely and well designed.
Awesome room. Huge, with gas heaters, and great furnishings including sofa and chairs. The room we had was the one with a double bathroom which was done to a very high standard. As well as a double shower, toilet and bidet, and extra large bath tub we also had two sinks. The room had a VERY cosy feel to it and it felt more like a bedroom than a hotel room.
Comfortable and big. Good night's rest.
Eric and his wife are very friendly and went out of their way to help us plan our stay in Knysna (much recommended) which was much appreciated. When we needed extra gas in our heaters, they sorted it for us, when we needed our laundry done they arranged for it, when we forgot our power adaptors (UK to SA) they tried to dig some out for us and when we needed hiking ideas they advised us. When looking for halal food, they knew where to find it. Very warm and welcoming, highly recommended. Their dogs are cute too, they don't bite!
Excellent signal reaching all rooms with fast speeds.
As and when we wanted, no complaints.
Buffet with the usual stuff - eggs, toast, beans, cereals, fruit, juices, teas etc. Yummy.
We spent 3 nights here and managed to get a lot of outdoor activities done. We had dinner almost every night in the waterfront area which is about 10minutes drive (we had rented a 4x4).
