Absolutely amazing atmosphere! We were treated to the most breathtaking view of Knysna in all her glorious splendour. The hotel itself is très chic infused with rustic classic and comfortable. It is upscale without being overtly pretentious! The modern bar and dazzling fairylights aroud the balcony add a magnetic charm and unique edge. My gin & tonic was served with...

Right at the end of Knysna Heads, great views over the lagoon. Comfortable rooms. Friendly management. One restaurant nearby for dinner, but otherwise need to drive to other activities. Breakfasts were really good.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite over Xmas. The 180 degree of the bay and Heads view is exquisite. You can sit in the enormous bed and see all around. The suite is a set of large rooms, more than we needed. It could do with a bit of updating but everything was clean and comfortable. The hosts were professional...

Delightful view. The place is run down though. Could do with a clean of the carpets and improved bedding. The bathroom was not of a decent standard, towels were aged. The host was not entirely welcoming

Augusta Bay K, Manager at Augusta Bay, responded to this review

Thanks for the somewhat puzzling review. Puzzling, because you didn't actually stay here - your daughter did! And probably also puzzling for anyone reading this, because it's so at odds with all the other reviews, that say the exact opposite... Are you sure you reviewed the correct hotel?

We have stayed here a few times and are never disappointed. The rooms are large, airy and very comfortable, most with great views over The Heads and the lagoon. In the very busy area private parking is a huge bonus. Our hosts were very friendly and informative being able to answer lots of questions we had about the area and...

We stayed at Augusta Bay recently and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. From the breathtaking views to the amazing breakfast. The pool was awesome and so was the very spacious room. We will definitely be returning soon.

I booked this guest house due to a combination of price, location and the fact that it is pet-friendly. The price for the accommodation is on the high side for South Africa but I still consider it a good value. The room was spacious and comfortable with view of the lagoon. Good-sized bathroom with a tub and shower and two...

Have used Augusta Bay before & we have always been 100% happy with booking correspondence, rooms & service. We cannot fault it & the location of course is fantastic overlooking the Heads at Knysna reminiscing of our sailing days in/out of those spectacular & treacherous waters. All rooms are very spacious suites & very well appointed. Antje & Paddy make...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Augusta Bay hotel, we booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 5 in the end. We had a lovely room at the front of the hotel with a bay window overlooking the lagoon, stunning. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast with choice of different combinations which was a nice touch. Only...
