The Headlands House is a hidden gem in Headlands area of Knysna. The guest house has the best view in the area and the service was excellent and the staff was extremely friendly. The complimentary breakfast is off the charts and a great start to one's day. Don't miss this place!

We booked the seahorse room for two nights and enjoyed a fantastic view from our private balcony. The room was nicely arranged, very clean and included modern bathroom facilities. The Headlands staff was super-friendly and prepared every morning a tasty breakfast. Unfortunately, we have been to busy to spend more time in the pool/ terrace area. We would have loved to spend more days at the Headlands and highly recommend this guesthouse to everyone who seeks a calm/remote accomodation.

Not worth the money, for R6k for 2 people 2 nights could at least have water in the rooms. Breakfast is worth R20. This place is the same value for money as a R750 guesthouse. Rather pass it to a camping site.....

review by Braam Groenewald

"Fantastic! "

We stayed at other Guest houses along the Garden Route as well and Headlands came out tops. The setting is picturesque, the rooms lovely and the staff friendly. We will definitely be visiting again!
