Reviewed 12 March 2014

If we could visit one place again it would be Brenton Hill self catering. The most beautiful spot with views that left us breathless. Fantastic, spotless accommodation. Great atmosphere created by Cat and Andy who run this amazing place. And children welcome and loads to do!

Cannot recommend highly enough.

Thank you so much for a wonder week!!

Once again - thank you for taking the time to review Brenton Hill.

First impressions weren't bad, the location seemed nice and the views were pretty enough, but we soon realised that Brenton Hill was far from idyllic. The accommodation was fairly basic and in desperate need of updating. There was a small communal pool on the owners property, but as the owners and their children were always in it, we didn't feel particularly welcome to use it. Brenton Hill is miles away from anything and there was a constant shortage of hot water. Adequate if you just need somewhere to get your head down for a night, but certainly not somewhere I'll be visiting again! Dull and dreary, give it a wide berth..

Excellent accommodation. Spacious rooms and great service. Appartments offer lots of privacy. Hosts were very friendly. The view on the bay is excellent! we enjoyed our stay very much.

My family and I stayed here for 10 nights whilst enjoying the surrounding area of Knysna. The rooms were spotless with the most stunning views of the lagoon and mountains. Each room was well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. It was perfect for our children as there was a beautiful pool and lots of space for them to play safely. The owners were friendly and helpful at all times.
In short I would recommend this guest house to anyone who wants to stay in Knysna. It was close to the main town but better than staying in the town itself as there was so much space and such a great vibe!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a fab view, great beds and plenty of space

We spent 4 nights here and it was perfect in every way. The position, the views and the comfortable rooms.
It was great to be able to just chill out and do our own cooking for a short time while mostly staying at B & B's on our holiday.
Beautifully quiet and yet not to far away from anywhere, some great walks nearby and wonderful wildlife from the bedroom window.

Room Tip: The rooms are very spacious.

Spent 3 nights at this excellent gem of a place. Stunning views,spotlessly clean and very friendly staff and owners. A perfect place to get away from the rat race for some chill time yet close enough to the tourist attractions.

Our stay at Brendon Hill (self-catering unit) during December was delightful.
The facility is situated on a hill overlooking the lagoons, Thesen Island and a part of Knysna itself. Beautiful!!
The hosts were friendly and obliging through our stay.
The facilities were spotless and serviced efficiently, quickly and quietly.
We will gladly choose to stay there again, should we visit that area.
