Stayed for 2 nights whilst on a roadtrip with a friend. Warm welcome by Margaret who had lots of useful information about Knysna and the surrounding area. We had a lovely twin room on the verandah overlooking the lagoon - spectacular views! Very comfortable beds and nice touches such as a welcome note and chocolate on the pillow. Breakfast was...

Stayed for business over the Christmas period for 4 nights. Room was beautifully furnished with antiques and the view from a chair outside my room was directly over the lake. Comfortable beds and clean linen. Bathroom a little cramped but entirely functional. Room initially a little stuffy but fan sorted that out. Great hospitality and friendly staff. Breakfasts a delight...

The room was OK - but thats all, just OK which is not fantastic. Service or welcome on arrival was terse & not very welcoming. The rooms are average at best, no wifi 20m from reception, an incredibly steep driveway not at all conducive or helpful with access. I left before breakfast times & no effort was made to accommodate...

We stayed at this establishment during December 2016 and enjoyed the hospitality immensely. We were offered a free upgrade to a larger room with a great view of the lagoon free of charge. They serve a great breakfast with a good selection of cereals, fruit and cooked food.

This lodge is just in front of Knysna lagoon, so you will wake up with such an amaing view. The room was big, beautiful, silent, clean, and so confortable. We...

Lovely place with a old times touch. The lodge brings you back into colonial times. Rooms are fine with comfortable beds. I had a lovely view of Knysna lagoon. The location is fine and walking distance from the city center. It is easy to find and park for self drive.

The bathroom was a bit cramped, but otherwise very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were excellent. The driveway up to the property is a...
