We found the Private Guesthouse in great shape (as expected) when we came to stay again this year. Which means that Margrit and Bruno Giger are investing a lot of time, thought and money to keep this jewel of an estate immaculate and up-to-date. The rooms/bathrooms are beautiful, comfortable and spacious, with everything one could wish for: from the newest TV-set to the mini bar, fresh fruit and complementary Port. Speaking of Bar: there is a charming one on the premises, run by Bruno, with an exquisite wine cellar. It’s a good place to meet after a putting competition on the new mini-golf on the back of the garden, a swim in the pool or a long day exploring Knysna and its surroundings.
But this is just the setting: what makes the place even more special is the warmth and generosity of Margrit’s and Bruno’s hospitality, the wonderful breakfasts, coffee and home-made cakes in the afternoon, well trained and friendly staff. So you’ll hate leaving.
