Reviews for Knysna Manor House Guesthouse
LOVELY! Staff are super friendly and the place is spotless. Gorgeous old house and very comfortable.
Stunning place, hosts are friendly and helpful. Staff goes the extra mile. Amenities very nice
Lady owner, did a discount and charge full price. Better to check correctly. Not trustable. House and room were ok.
Nice quiet place. Wifi connection is perfect.
What a lovely warm place,I really enjoyed my stay. It's walking distance to the Knysna waterfront
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.
Over the last 8 years we have frequently stayed at Knysna Manor House and have had consistently excellent stays. Brenda and her team run a consistently good establishment.Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Excellent breakfast.Lovely views from the deck.Close to all amenities
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.
It was very very fantastic!!
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.
