This is a beautiful B&B, centrally located, with a magnificent view of the Knysna Heads. Our room, The Kingfisher, was spacious and comfortable; I highly recommend this room because of its uninterrupted view of the Heads. We felt at home within minutes of our arrival at Double Dutch. Kate and Nathalie are perfect hosts; they are warm, thoughtful and attentive,...

We received the best welcome from Kate and Natalie that I've received anywhere - brilliant help in advising us where to visit and eat.

The energy and enthusiasm from Nathalie and Kate are first class and they couldn't have done any more to make our stay in Knysna better. They shared plenty of tips for good walks and restaurants and were quick to make bookings and reservations for us and they also provided beach towels and a sun shade for our trip to the...

Kate and Nathalie made us welcome from the first moment and take pleasure in facilitating guests' stay. It is well situated with a view over the lagoon but easy walking down into town and they can arrange for a taxi back up in the evening. The room we had was spacious and very well appointed and we enjoyed sitting on...

This was undoubtedly the best B&B we stayed at during our recent visit to South Africa (and there were others that we would also rate as excellent). Location, accommodation, breakfast, welcome from Kate and Nathalie, all superb. Everything about this place has already been said many times. A real find. Would have absolutely no problems recommending the Double Dutch to...
