It was so casual when we arrived that we weren't sure what to expect. It adds to your sence of adventure, that feeling of being unsure. Getting to our room we saw they were building a house in front of where we were. We laid on the bed , contemplating if we wanted to stay and that was a good... More

We only spent one night here but wish it could have been longer. We had been delayed en route but were given a very warm welcome from Michael. Lyngenfjord is a fascinating house, full of interesting furnishings and memorabilia. Our bedroom was spacious, well appointed and had the most wonderful view over the ocean. Michael provided us with excellent directions... More

We wished your stay could have been longer too, meeting you and your wonderful husband was an honor and getting to host such down to earth and kind-hearted people is always an absolute pleasure. Gunny says he hopes you come back some day (I think he misses you and kept looking for you after you departed!) More

Just spent one night here en route to from PE to Knysna. Friendly, welcoming and hospitable, Lyngenfjord provided a very comfortable berth for our brief stay. Mandy was extremely helpful in reuniting one of our party with the jacket he left behind!

We booked a room with sea views after seeng photo's on the internet, we paid for a room with a view, but we got a view of a building site.

Lyngenfjord House is magnificently situated and run by exceptionally friendly people. Mandy was, in particular, very kind and attentive. The breakfast was fantastic. Room size great but carpets and curtains a bit old and tatty. Bathrooms need to be upgraded.
