Great place to stay! Each morning the breakfast was excellent and the host and hostess, Cecil and Edith, were always cheerful and helpful. We stayed with our 12 year old son in the family suite and had all the comforts of home. The view of the lagoon from the private balcony was great. The location is close to all the beautiful sights and any shopping you want to do. We stayed 10 days and so the in house laundry service was greatly appreciated. It was prompt, reasonable and well done. We look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Family Suite is quiet, and well appointed. The kitchen has everything you could need. The two bedr...

Thank you Barbs for staying at Lavender Hill, Cecil and I enjoyed having your group and the wonderful energy you brought into our guest house. We look forward to having you again in the near future. A little bird told me it may be next year.

We had a wonderful stay @ Lavender Hill. Cecil and Edith were warm, kind and gracious hosts! Excellent Breakfast, beautiful and clean rooms, incredible views. An additional welcomed perk was their laundry service which was prompt and very reasonable. I look forward to a return stay!

Dear Pastor Lane
Thank you for the lovely review. Cecil and I enjoyed your stay in our guest house. Its not often that we have a group of 7 young men staying at Lavender Hill + doing the wonderful work you did in the township. May your group go from strength to strength.
God bless you all. Edith

Attentive, welcoming guest house that made the guests feel very well-looked after.
This accommodation gives excellent value for money.
Hospitable hosts accommodated 5 girls with a cooked breakfast & very early send off to the airport on their day of departure.

Cecil and Edith are the most welcoming and friendly hosts I have had the pleasure of staying with in a very long time. The food was excellent, the rooms where warm, clean with a great view and very comfortable bed. We came for the weekend of the Knysna marathon and a pre-snack was set out at 4am without us even having to request it. Thank you both for making our stay that much more enjoyable (pity we couldn't run, but we'll be back next year.) thanks Romy and Dino

Cecil and Edith are the most wonderful hosts my friends and I have ever come across. At Lavender Hill Guest House, you will not only enjoy the fabulous and comfortable place but the food is just delicious! The place is very accessible and there are many activities that can be done in the surrounding. I personally believe that Lavender Hill Guest House is the place to be!
