Villa Afrikana Guest Suites
Ranked #1 of 30 Hotels in Knysna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Villa Africana is really nice, fabulous location overlooking the bay, lovely suite and a great breakfast. In fact it is difficult to find fault with anything. Possibly the staff are a little too anxious to serve and at times we felt they hadn't quite got the 'unnoticeable but present' trick some do achieve. However, their efforts were appreciated.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room to get the best views.

Nice hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. Great location with a view to Knysna harbour. Big rooms, some of them with balcony. Nice breakfast vwhich you can get it served on your balcony. Big luxury bathroom.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a balcony. Choose one that have a balcony.

I recently had the fortune of being able to spend a couple of days at the lovely guest house, Villa Afrikana. The property is a beautifully and tastefully decorated modern style with clean lines and remarkable home like atmosphere.

The owners, Ross and Bianca are the real success, overseeing every detail of the operation daily to insure no comfort is left unthought of. The house staff are friendly and have a relentless desire to please.

I would highly recommend Villa Afrikana to any lucky person who has the chance to visit Knysna or the surrounding area. Can't wait to go back! Again and again.

Room Tip: all rooms have remarkable views of the lagoon and the Knysna Heads so no need to worry about which r...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Afrikana Guest suites. This was by far the best accommodation we experienced in our entire trip to Africa.The room was outstanding in appearance, facilities and cleanliness. The view was amazing. The service was excellent-from the delicious breakfasts, evening drinks and excellent service including travel tips and booking taxis, we could not have asked for a better stay here. I would highly recommend Villa Afrikana.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in "the Owners" Suite on our way along the Garden Route
Everything about this 5 star guest house will give you a 6 star experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and the hospitality 1st class
Bianca and Ross have created an excellent environment tastefully decorated and everything from the decore to the linen is a quality experience and the views were excellent
We thoroughly enjoyed our time and were glad we stayed for 2 nights instead of one
Cannot recommend highly enough
