We spent two nights here as part of the garden route tour. The first night was in the "No Matata" room which is comfy, spacious and has a lovely bathroom. We slept like logs as it was very quiet.
The hosts Mark and his wife Arlene were so welcoming and friendly - we fell in love with the newest member of the family, Hugo their dog who is the cutest loveliest dog ever (if you are reading this Mark, if you ever need a dog-sitter, just call us OK!).
Breakfast was very good, although compared to the other b+b's we stayed in, it could have included a wider selection of food and jams.
There are free drinks including house wine and spirits which is a nice touch.
We then stayed in the Paradise Suite for our second night and I agree with the previous contributor in that the open plan was not a problem and the views from this room (both the balcony and the huge bathtub) are outstanding and jaw dropping. Whilst it is not cheap, this is a really special room for a special occasion.
The gardens were fantastic and very well kept, however the upkeep of the pool, left a lot to be desired. The water was murky and we never used it.
Do watch out for the unmetered taxi cartel in Knysna to the B+B's, which charge between 60-70 rand for a single trip to the waterfront which is only 5 mins away. Best if you travel with other couples in a 6 seater cab, thus saving you all expense each night.
Restaurants were excellent, Dry Dock and Cruise Cafe in particular.
An hour away, you must try the Steam Train which runs from George to Mossel Bay and back every day (advance bookings only) for a really special day out for all.
