We were made so welcome in this beautiful home and would not hesitate to return.
A convenient base for a good selection of attractions within easy travelling,and so restful on our return,with a comfortable patio and pool facilities and a great elevated view over the lagoon and Knysna Heads,particularly at sunset. A few minutes drive to a good range of restaurants in the harbour.
Our rooms were fresh,light and very comfortable, with excellent facilities.
Breakfast met everyone's wishes with a good range of choice.
We appreciated the input of Joyce and Graham in providing good advice on local attractions.
Good memories !

I recently visited Knysna and once again stayed at Candlewood Lodge.

This was my third stay at Candlewood only this time I was on my own as my husband has passed away. What can I say? it was as fantastic as ever, Joyce and Graham made me so welcome, I felt like an old friend The service and hospitality were as good, if not better than before and I hope to go back again sometime soon

Room Tip: I enjoyed staying in Shell as it is on the ground floor

Wonderful welcome and great rooms with spectacular view of the Heads.
The rooms are bright with great beds and the honesty bar and the pool was a great end to the day. (The upstairs rooms have the best views_)
Breakfast was really good and Graham did mean poached eggs/

Good value and we would stay again

This was definitely the best guesthouse on our South Africa trip. We had a room with shared balcony and a view at the lagoon. The room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Breakfast was typical "guesthouse-breakfast" with a small buffet and your choice of eggs-everything very delicious. The owners were friendly and helpful, and would give you any information you need. Unfortunately we didn't have time to use the garden area and the swimmingpool.

This was our second visit to Knysna as we loved it so much the first time. Candlewood Lodge was recommended to us by a family member and we were not disappointed. It was superb in every way. We stayed in the 'Sand' room overlooking the bay and the views were amazing. The room was large and airy, with both bath and shower in the ensuite. It was spotlessly clean as was the whole of the house. The breakfast was superb and the staff who were all locals were very friendly and they looked after us superbly. Graham and Joyce, the owners, made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Graham organised a wonderful golf day for us at the superb Perzula Estate at special discounted rates. We had not brought our golf clubs with us so he also arranged the hire of 2 sets at a very reasonable rate. We stayed for 3 nights but did not want to leave when the time came. I am sure we will return to Knysna if only to stay with Graham and Joyce again. We will be recommending Candlewood Lodge to all our friends and family.

Room Tip: Choose one of the sea view bedrooms as the groung floor rooms do not have the superb views and are on the level of the decking area where the pool area is located and where breakfast is served weather permitting.
