We recently stayed at the Knysna Country House, unfortunately just for 1 night - not long enough! Our bedroom was really comfortable, and the outdoor pool/seating area is fab and really spacious.

Beautiful setting, convenience in location, comfort that made you yearn for bedtime (we stayed in a double room), delicious breakfasts, friendly and accommodating hosts - our thoughts after a 3 night stay. Simply put - great value for money!

We had really great friendly hospitality at Knysna Country Cottage. The room had everything we needed and the place is close to restaurants and amenities. Although we were only in town for one night on our road trip the stay was perfect and our hosts were super friendly and we'll certainly be back when we next head to Knysna.

Great owners who know a lot about what to do and where to go. Felt like home! Our room was on the small side, but complete with everything you need. Breakfast was lovely and fresh. A great place to stay. We went on a cheetah walk and had a townshop tour, both amazing!

This was our second visit to Knysna Country House (I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it). We were booked into a family unit that consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a lounge with fridge and coffee & tea facility’s. The pool looked very inviting from our private patio. The hosts, Eric & Ypie are very pleasant company...
