We stayed at Candlewood Lodge for 2 nights during our honeymoon trip. Candlewood was one out of 4 guesthouses along the Garden Route and now that we made it to our last one, we can truly say that it was the best! Ines and Andy are super great hosts, very professional, extremely helpful and nice and they make you feel welcome the minute you are at their doorstep! Excellent breakfast prepared with love and dedication. The rooms are just amazing with the best view over Knysna lake.You guys are the best! Keep doing what you're doing!

From start to finish, our stay was truly fantastic. We were welcomed by Andreas with a drink and then his wife Ines brought us some lovely fresh fruit and refreshing hand towel. We got an amazing run through of Knysna and a really helpful map to accompany it. Our room was beautiful and the decor spot on. After talking with our lovely hosts it was clear how passionate they are about the area and South Africa. Almost everything has been locally sourced, including the coffee, soaps and drinks in the rooms. Attention to detail was second to none - we were given a lovely little gift (a locally made soap) as a honeymoon present and the turn down in the evening included a sweet treat and a bedtime story rolled up and hung on the door. There were little welcome treats left by the front door to spoil us and candles lit in the evenings to give a relaxed and romantic glow. The breakfasts were incredible. Fresh juices and beautifully brewed coffee (the best we had on our trip in SA). Again, the emphasis was on local produce - from local cheese and milk, to delicious dried fruits and hand made preserves and cakes. Not only did we have tonnes of sweet and savoury options from the buffet but also a main option - these included fluffy omelettes to sweet French toast. We were in breakfast heaven. The lodge and room were immaculate and spotlessly clean. The amenities in the room were great - electric blankets, robes, slippers, yoga mat, extra blankets, mini bar and our very own telescope to look out at the view and stars! The only very small negative (and it is small) - there was no shelf in the shower to pop toiletries on, so we had to keep them on the floor. The lodge was made even more homely by a gorgeous and very well behaved Rhodesian ridge back - he posed perfectly for pictures! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay along the Garden Route.
