Had a comfortable stay! Nice rooms and nice breakfast. It is a little off so you will need a car to get around. Also lovely new host that took over in August of 2014! Small precious lavender details everywhere which makes it special and calmly situated in a green area.

Our stay was very short, but we were very happy. The facilities were clean and very well-equipped - and spacious enough for a family of four. The staff were very friendly and helpful, making our stay pleasant.

Our trip to Knysna included staying 3 nights at Lavender Hill Guest House and we were glad we did! The building itself is amazing and not far from the Knysna Heads; and surrounded by beautiful greenery. Knysna centre is just a stone's throw away. The accomodation was of a very high standard and the full English breakfast was delicious! Karen...

Spent New Year's Eve at Lavennder Hills. What a wonderful home. Breakfast was amazing. The owner went out of her way to ensure we were all comfortable. The beds were amazing, the entire home so neat. Definitely will return on our next trip to Knysna.

We stayed three nights at this beautiful guest house, breakfast was included and the food was well presented and served. There was a hot and cold choice with cerials, yogurts, hams cheeses etc the room was very clean and has a nice view looking towards the bay of Knysna. Safe parking and very reasonable rates

The lady(Karen) was very hospitable towards me and my colleague. We loved the rooms, and found them affordable. The location of the lodge was ideal for us as we could easily go to town and the venue of our workshop. i liked the service I received most and I did not like that the water was warm not hot.

Edith and Cecil are always friendly and obliging, right down to finding a feather pillow for me. It made all the difference. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are private and spacious and the owners are there to satisfy your every request. What more can one want in such a fabulous town!
