We stayed here for two nights in September 2007, at the beginning of our Garden Route tour. Our hosts Simon & Cathy were wonderful, very welcoming – they even commiserated with us (for about a millisecond) after the Springboks beat the England team in the Rugby World Cup – England did not score a single point!!
A delightful and relaxing place to stay. The rooms are very clean and elegantly furnished in white and cream, very calming. Simon’s breakfasts are filling and a tasty way to start the day.
There is lots to do in the local area, we went to the Knysna Elephant Park – go early if you want to go on an Elephant walk. And a must is a visit to Noetzie, a beautiful beach down a bumpy stony road just outside Knysna on the way to Plett – it is unspoilt and beautiful and I suspect relatively quiet even in the height of summer due to it’s location, we had the beach to ourselves. Also try the local beer at Mitchells Brewery a five minute drive away.
And lastly, like many others who have stayed here we too went to Tides Restaurant for dinner – WOW – Michael’s a genius, the food looked and tasted wonderful, this restaurant is a real gem. A gastronomic delight.
We will be back!
