Candlewood Lodge
Ranked #2 of 127 Knysna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Lovely position and stunning views of Knysna lagoon and The Heads. Access not for nervous drivers! Charming and friendly hosts, and best breakfast we had in four weeks. Slightly out of Knysna town but access very easy by car to waterfront and The Heads. Immaculate room and delightful staff kept it perfect during our three-night stay. Hope to return!

Room Tip: If you like a view ask for first-floor room. Advantage of garden view is no stairs to climb!

Beautiful, spotlessly clean, well kept, home away from home. Me and a friend stayed at this stunning B&B for the weekend. The rooms are great with fantastic views over Knysna lagoon. The pool and jacuzzi are lovely - what better way to end the day than with a sunset jacuzzi!! Graham and Joyce, the owners, are knowledgable and helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. We felt completely comfortable, safe and welcome in their home. Thank you for a perfect weekend - hopefully I'll be back again!! Highly recommended!

We stayed two days at shell-room. It is a very nice guesthouse and Joyce and Graham are very friendly and helpsome. The room has a little lack of privacy, as people can pass along the doors. We would have apprciated a fridge in the room, although some people seem not to like the sound of it. It is rated a 5* lodge, but we could not tell the difference with the good 4* experiences we had before. It is a good place to spend a few nights

Our second visit here and just as good as ever. The sand room has great views over the lagoon and is beautiful with great bathroom and everything is spotlessly clean. Good breakfast served indoors or out. R60 taxi to waterfront. Nowhere better to stay in knysna

Lovely place...comfy rooms with a nice view from its balcony..and a great sun area.
The breakfast was great on the patio.
The owners went out their way to say hello and ensure we had everything.
Although you need a car (like everything in SA) it was Close to the Waterfront and felt very safe.
A nice home from home with plenty of parking and easy access every where

We recently visited this B&B during our trip around South Africa, following the Garden Route. The visit was with a group of 7, we occupied 3 rooms that were great rooms with nice beds. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast in the garden and would be welcomed by Graham who would make a conversation.

Service was excellent, even when we forgot something he promptly called us shortly after leaving to continue our trip, even offering to ship if needed.

Great B&B

We stayed at Candlewood Lodge for 3 nights in November, our Balcony room SAND had a fantastic full bathroom, the views across the Lagoon, without even getting out of bed were breathtaking.
Our hosts Joyce & Graham were on hand to great us and help us with recommendations for restaurants and things to do and see around Knysna. It was beautiful weather whilst were were there and the breakfast was served on the Terrace and was fantsatic. The staff were friendly and kept the whole lodge immaculate. We plan to return next year.

Room Tip: Upstairs balcony rooms are all airconditioned and spacious, book one if they haven already been take...
