Pumula Lodge was absoluely spick ans span in every way from rooms to gardens to breakfast area..all well appointed and the hosts were attentive and served a great breakfast.Rooms were spotless but a bit on the small side for 2 large suitcases and us!.We enjoyed having our own balcony and the bird life was wonderful! Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Pumula Lodge. It would be perfect for just passing through Knysna or like me, with family staying in Knysna I stayed there for 10 days.

Second time round. Still a fantastic place to stay. The beautiful garden adds to the relaxed atmosphere of this place. You come away refreshed. The rooms have all you need whether local or international traveler. We could make this our annual retreat.

We enjoyed our stay at Puluma Lodge. The meals were excellent, the hosts were very helpful, the place was clean, outdoor deck with chairs, and there were sufficient electrical outlets to recharge electronic devices, something that is sorely missing in many places we have stayed during our visit to South Africa. The only downside was the size of the room....

Can highly recommend this beautiful lodge in Knysna. Set in beautiful natural surroundings filled with life. Thanks to Rensia for such a warm welcoming. Room lacked nothing and lovely deck to sit outside on and just take in the Peace and quiet and watch the birds. Can highly recommend this lovely Lodge.

We stayed for two weeks at the lodge in December and was it very enjoyable. Our room was very neat and clean with everything we needed. The balcony was quite big and comfortable where we could relax while looking out on their beautiful garden. Rensia was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again if in Knysna.
