“A perfect stay!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We stayed at Stannards Guest Lodge for the third time this december 2013. As usual we got a very warm welcome by Helen and Patrick who owns and run the Lodge. This time we stayed at the "Bungalow" in the garden. Perfectly siyuated close to the pool and the BBQ area. The graden is butiful, the rooms very Clean, and the Breakfast to our satisfaction. We will defenitly return next time we visit Knysna.

We were well adviced and we chose accordingly Stannards guest house for two nights in Knysna; Patrick and his family provided us with a beautiful appartment with 2 bedrooms for our family of 5 in a separate pavillion in their magnificent garden.
The personal touch, the attention to details, the quality of advices to discover Knysna region...made us feel home.
We strongly advice this guest house.

A pretty guest house in Knysna, furnished with love. The breakfast buffet is very good. The hosts were very welcoming and gave us lots of tips for our time in knyna. We had a great time and can definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Reviewed 25 September 2013

We stayed 2 nights earlier in september, and the room we we allocated was just off the car park with a view to a wall 1 meter away;

The room was extremely cold -- as was the reception from the owners when we asked for a heater. The furniture and equipement was very tired and close to dangerous, and the breakfast entirely unremarkable

In summary, a big disappointment

Excellent. I was on a cycling trip from Cape Town to Knysna after 4days on a saddle, cold and wet weather I needed a warm, comfortable, neat and luxurious stay before the Knysna road race on Sunday. Recovery and sleep were of utmost importance to perform well. I was so warmly welcomed, staff were helpful and friendly and willing to wake early to be there for me on race day if I needed it! Wow! The room was impeccably clean, warm and electric blanket was on ready for me when I arrived. Breakfast is delicious, view and gardens are beautiful and in general a relaxing, rejuvenating place to stay. I had the best rest and was back on form for Sundays race:) a shell message I received at Saturday morning breakfast after the challenging week: "It always seems impossible, until it is done!" Awesome!

We did a " road trip" from Cape Town to Port Elisabeth in May and we had the chance to stay 1 night in Knysna with Patrick and her wife. It is a wonderful Guest House, host are really available and happy to share their knowledge. Accomodations are sophisticated and confortable.Breakfast is very good. Thanks again!!!

This guesthouse is in a wonderful setting, with a large garden and swimming pool.The owners are very nice, and gave us very good recommendations for restaurants etc. We had the two cottages next to the pool, and we also used the braai next to the pool. Very relaxing stay
