Brenton Hill is everything you could wish for, and then some! We are already planning our next visit, which will certainly be for more then five days. Many thanks for a lovely stay, Andy and Catriona!

We stayed one night at Brenton Hill, once a 5 day journey along the Garden Route, from PE to Cape Town. We were travelling with 2 other couples, both from Canada, and this was a perfect location for a group travelling together. Stunning view over Kynsna, and only a 10 minute drive into Knysna. Highly recommended!

We were part of a group of 8 and we had the place to ourselves. The accommodation was very comfortable and roomy, with various alfresco areas that we could use, including an honesty bar!
Best by far was the breathtaking view over the lagoon to Knysna.....our hosts friendly and helpful and everything within a few minutes drive with spectacular views at every bend....going to Knysna stay at the Brenton Hill.

Stayed for 4 days in mid jan and really enjoyed our stay. Absolutely amazing views of Knysna from across the lagoon and you can braai on the terrace with this as your back drop. Very friendly owners who leave you to it. Some cracks around he edges but that view will always paper over these. Great safe enclosed garden for the kids to play in.

There are probably comparable views in a few other very select locations in the world but not at this price, and not with this degree of space and comfort. The hosts are relaxed and ever helpful; the staff diligent and smiling. Our stay was a breathtaking treat from start to finish.

The hotel is fantastic with a view which is breathtaking over Knysna Bay.
You have your own garden where you can have breakfast or sit in the evening watching the view over the bay. The garden has a fence so the kids can play without you need to watch them every minut.
The apartments are huge, we had three bedroom and a big living room
The owner is very nice and friendly.
The self catering is very nice and clean. The hotel also has a very big playground for the kids.
It a perfect for a family who wants to stay in self catering. If you want to go to a restaurant it's only 5 minutes drive away.

Room Tip: We had the Eagle's Nest where you have your own big garden where the kids can play.

My family and I were attending a wedding in Knysna and the guests were staying here so we popped round for a small get together the night before. Although I initially though that the place lacked a bit of atmosphere, I soon changed my mind once I got outside and admired the view! It is to die for! as we were just there for the evening I couldn't tell you how comfy the beds were or what the staff were like but I can tell you that you will not forget that view in a long time! The bedrooms/living areas were gorgeous though, quite plan and simple, but I think that works so to appeal to the masses! Even if you just stay for one night, go and see that view!
