I got a booking at the Hide Away Guest House via Hotwire, and didn't quite know what to expect. The Hide Away and its owner Colleen blew us away with their warm hospitality, spotless spacious room, and beautiful setting. Even on pulling into their parking lot, we found ourselves exclaiming that we wished we had booked for more than one night and had more time to enjoy this spot. The house seems sprawling, and its lovely view out to the lagoon is hard to beat. Our room was huge and very well-equipped with air conditioner, mini-fridge, glasses for the wine we brought, and a nice little table on a terrace outside where we enjoyed a glass before heading to dinner. Colleen gave us an endless list of options for our hot breakfast, recommended a great place for dinner downtown, gave us pointers on attractions in the area, and served up the breakfast the next morning on the outdoor table overlooking the lagoon. We enjoyed Knysna itself, and we would unhesitatingly recommend Hide Away Guest House to anyone traveling the Garden Route.

Thanks to Cecil and Colleen for a wonderful two nights stay and for the tasty custom made breakfasts and for going out of their way to ensure that my stay was pleasant and memorable. The view of the lagoon is spectucular and being surrounded by such much water is just was I needed to restore my stressed soul. A pity that is was so cold, but nothing that the warm hospitality, electric blanket, heater and tasty food could not rectify. Although I am a local visitor, it was great to hear Colleen sharing ideas with the other guests on key places to visit and adding value by checking and booking them onto avialable and advertised tours. The hosts are certainly an asset to Knysna tourism.

Room Tip: The lagoon facing rooms are great, a good size and the stocked mini bar and local wines are great.

Wonderfull guesthouse and very nice host. The guesthouse is in a nice garden with partial view to the sea.
The host is very helpfull. They gave us several good hints about Knsyna and the area around.
The breakfast was got and served in the Dining hall by the host.

Knysna is a hub on the Garden Route down the cost of South Africa. It's a convenient place for a relaxing night stop-over.
The Hide-Away Hotel is run by husband and wife, Cecil and Colleen. You get the feel of a large family house rather than a hotel. It has a homely feel, very welcoming, and comfortable.
Despite it's name it is on the slip road just off the main Garden Route so easy to find.

This B&B was very nice. The hostess was very helpful in finding a place for us to eat dinner. She also recommended us to visit the Kynsa Elephant Park, this is a must see in my opinion. It was a grat chance to see and walk with the elephants
