“Brilliant Accommodation”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

It was a pleasure staying here. Unfortunately only one night and a short stay, but will definitely be back. The breakfast was great and the owners are very friendly. Rooms are very clean and a lot of thought is put into extras and rooms.

Lovely setting with a warm friendly atmosphere. Just a few things that were not what I would expect from a 4 star Guest Lodge: the ashtray on the table outside our room was dirty on arrival, the duvet looked like it was 2 sizes too small for the bed, there were only side plates available to dish breakfast onto and the hot plate for the eggs was off when we sat down hence having cold eggs.

Thank you for your comment. It is nice to see you liked the setting and our friendly welcome. For the eggs they are usually on a hot plate “on”. We have as many plates as you want on request. Sorry that your bed was done apparently with not the correct size duvet! Thank you again for your comment. We will be much more careful about these comfort details from now. Best regards from the Stannards Guest Lodge Team.

We had a wonderful stay here, spending 2 nights one of the family cottages. Our hosts, Patrick and Helen, were great. While eating breakfast, Patrick gave us good tips on what to do in the area and where to eat for dinner. The location is also great, and very close to Leisure Island. I was actually able to jog to Leisure island. Our only regret was not being able to stay for longer.

We had such a wonderful stay at Stannards Guestlodge. We stayed in the family cottage with my daughters and some friends. We all loved the decoration. The room are very big, clean, very pretty and very well equiped. The patio just calls for a nice glass of wine after a day exploring the area. Couldn't ask for nicer hosts. Patrick was so helpful every morning helping us plan our day, excursions... Best advice : East Heads Cafe. Thank you again for our lovely stay. We are looking forward to come back soon! Amicalement, Marie et compagnie...

We stayed in the self catering cottage at the pool and we had an amazing time. Patrick made a braai for us and we watched Champions League football in the honesty bar. And we got excellent tips for day trips around Knysna. We felt like staying at a friends place. Would go there again and again.

We just completed a 4 night stay stay at Stannards, having visited them 3 years ago. It was just as good as we remember, Patrick and Helene are great hosts, they know Knysna well and are willing to help and advise where asked. Our cottage (the smaller of the two) was spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated and exceedingly comfortable, as were the public rooms. The decor overall is original and chic, and contributes to the relaxed ambiance. We will most definitely return when we pass that way again.
