Great views, nice rooms, but a bit too sterile to our taste. Missing the coziness of a real B&B where you have an honesty bar etc... Owners are very nice and give lot's of tips. Nice pool, but no sun in the afternoon and cold water.

This is a 4.5-star place, 9 out of 10, that I'd love to stay in again. The Dutch hosts are exceptionally considerate and friendly. Couldn't be kinder. Great views of the lagoon from communal areas and most rooms (not the Falcon Room). Nice gardens and pool with sun almost all day. Comfortable room - good bed, peaceful. Excellent breakfasts with...

You enter a wonderful estate, you are heart-warming welcomed, you walk through an amazing garden to end up in a well designed and equipped room; after having seen the view over Knysna Bay you wish to stay longer than planned. The breakfast next morning will add to it, there is a mouthwatering buffet, but don´t miss to order something hot...

The guesthose is placed on a hillside, so the panorama is great: You will wake up with a direct view on the lagoon. The rooms are very good and the service as well. Both, Natalie and Kate, had very good tips for dinner and day tours. It was our exeptional place to stay via our Western Cape tour.

We fell in love with Knysna and Double Dutch. This B&B is different than a typical B&B. We had a separate room which was not connected to the main building with a spectacular view of the bay. We were in the 'Oyster Catcher' suite and in my honest opinion this one offers the best views. We spent two nights and...
