The accomodation was all we could hope for with most comfortable beds and excellent kitchen facilities. The laundry service was good and dependable. It is wonderfully quiet with some lovely birds.
We were treated at all times with courtesy, care and constant assurance of our hosts' help with any queries.
The position is peerless, looking down on the most beautiful vista over the lagoon to the town of Knysna and the villages in the hills, with the Outeniqua mountains in the background.
We felt it was excellent value and would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: All the rooms, whilst different,appeared to have the same stunning view and were equipped in a similar fashion

We spent two nights here in March. Accommodation is spacious and well-equipped. The views from the bedrooms and from the gardens & verandah are simply stunning. The unit is in a secluded location two thirds way up a hill that overlooks the Knysna lagoon, with the mountains behind that. It is a ten minute drive from Knysna, easy to find, just off the N2. Definitely one I would go back to.

Stayed: March 2014

I spoke with Catriona for the first time when calling for directions to Brenton Hill from the National Road after a tiring four hour drive.

She was excited to have me and my young son Jamie at their establishment and made us feel instantly at home.

Andy had been working hard to ensure everything was perfect for a music afternoon they were hosting the following day. We had a beer(s) together on the veranda as the sun slipped down. It felt more like old friends catching up rather than a first meeting.

We were shown to our spacious and well appointed room overlooking a well kept garden and onto the magnificent vista of the Knysna lagoon and the town itself.

Quiet. Peaceful. A wonderful place to rest.

Nothing was too much trouble. Next time we'll stay for longer than two days with our new friends. I've recommended Brenton Hill to friends and family traveling up the Garden Route looking for value and old school hospitality.

Thank you Andy, Cat, Ella and Ozzie (and your Mom who is absolutely amazing and makes a helluva pasta)

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!!

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..
