Thanks to the Elephant Hide for a lovely and memorable birthday weekend. From the moment we arrived until we said farewell we were welcomed with open arms. I definitely will be going back there again.

I would like to start off by thanking Fish for his outstanding service, he was so helpful and made us feel at home right from the start (his wife was just as wonderful). We enjoyed the surroundings and especially the view from our room - it was spectacular. The bathroom was one of our favourite rooms as it was a joy to come back from a long day of sightseeing and just take a relaxing bath while still being able to look out onto the beautiful surroundings. We look forward to our next vacation!

We stayed for 3 nights in September. The best aspect was the view of the lagoon from the big glass windows. Breakfast was not included in our rate and we found the rate for breakfast at the lodge to be very high. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room was serviced daily. Although a bit out of the central town everything is so close and a very short drive away (to the beaches, shops,restaurants and Thesens Island). We hope to be back!

Thank you for an excellent venue to spend our 27th anniversary of married life. What a great relaxation we had with splendid views of the lagoon. From the welcome to the checking out it was a great experience.

This hotel is overlooking the lagoon and has stunning views. The hotel is nice and private and absolutely wonderful. The staff couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable and they even arranged for a driver to come and fetch us to take us in to Knysna to have food so that we didn't have to take our own car, and were able to have a couple of drinks! The rooms are amazing, and the view from the bedroom and from the bathroom are stunning. The shower was great too! As for the breakfast, it was definitely the best breakfast of the whole holiday - really lovely, and you must try their Smoothies - Definitely the best ever! What a lovely place to stay on holiday. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Definitely a room overlooking the lagoon.

We chose Elephant Hide as our last stop on our honeymoon & we were very happy that we did. Their B&B is one of the best, if not the best in Knysna, great rooms with spectacular views. "Spoiler alert" ....their breakfast is their hidden secret, it's the best we have had, period. Their honeymoon package is also such a bargain, don't pass up the offer. Friendly staff & just great to see the owner take so much pride & make such an effort to get to know each one of their guests. Will miss their cute puppy that just lazed about & came to say goodbye as we made our way back home. (Jami & Oliver) May 2012.

The views from the bath, shower and bed are amazing. They look over some fynbos and the huge Knysna lagoon, no other houses or structures at all. Perfect for the beautiful orange and red sunsets.

Everyone was friendly, very helpful and the rooms were clean and tidy. We will definitely be back.
