Lady owner, did a discount and charge full price. Better to check correctly. Not trustable. House and room were ok.

Quaint, spacious manor with a beautiful meal deck overlooking the lagoon and nice breakfast. Good location 15m walk from the marina. Does have an old feel, however perhaps a tad run-down for our liking. Bathroom was in poor condition and this did affect our stay. Also inadequate parking - we had to park on the street both nights.If on a budget would certainly stay here, however more can be afforded for this price.

Wonderfully owners and staff...nothing is too much trouble for them...rooms large and spacious, but cleaned and beds made every day. Pool a little small..but very functional. There is outside dining available should you wish....on an overhead deck... Fantastic place and THE best in Knysna.

review by Unathi Ntsangani, South Africa


My stay - Very relaxing & enjoyable. The hosts were friendly, & could give useful advice of interesting places to visit in the garden route. The area is secure and very peaceful. I would recommend to anyone that they visits this part of our country; and that they stay in this Homely establishment.
