A good choice for a first visit to Knysna. Clean but small pool. Breakfasts enormous. Host genial and helpful. An excellent base from which to explore this part of the Garden Route. Amazing value for money!

We chose Knysna as a recommended stop on the Garden Route - and how right this was. The welcome and information from Frederick was great and we made the most of our short stay. The pool was great for a quick dip and relax in the sunshine. Dinner recommendation ticked all the boxes and an excellent breakfast was served before we had to leave. Thanks!

My friend and I stayed in this nice guesthouse for one night. We moved into the "Guinea Fowl Room". It was comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was pretty small, but this wasn't a problem. You can also find a little swimming pool with clean water.
Frederik, the host, was very friendly and helpful. After a quiet night in the big bed Frederik fixed an English breakfast, which was delicious.
Again, he was very attentive.

Result: We only can recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: Just in case you would like to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening: Ask Frederik.

Although we had the small appartment in the souterrain with no views and only a little space to move inside we enjoyed our stay here very much! the host was very friendly, he even organized a dinner reservation for us which was not easy at Christmas!
Also the breakfast was very good!
