What an unexpectedly warm welcome we received! We were made to feel like honoured guests throughout our stay. And the house itself is magnificent, with outstanding views over Knysna and a gorgeous garden. Delicious dinner and breakfast too. The air con was a tad noisy, but I could have turned it off.

Knysna is a must! Beautiful town. Falcons view was gorgeous and the service was second to none. A warm welcome and prompt to help us with our luggage. Shame I could only stay one night was definitely not long enough.

There was nothing not to like . The Staff was great, the bed, the room, the linen, the breakfast and the venue it self is beautiful. Lovely garden and the best view over Knysna! We will be going back in December!

Old world charm with uplifting attention to styling. Very classy yet relaxed. Stayed two nights and experienced inhouse cooking and service that was 5 star. Vegetables with goats cheese as entree with ribs (succulent meat that was falling off the bone) and seared tuna. Top notch. Our breakfast was served in the beautiful gardens and once again offered an extensive...

We loved staying in this historic building in Knysna. Views are spectacular and this was the best service we had during our entire trip. Dinner was excellent and highly recommend it. We received a free pre-dinner drink.

This guesthouse is located in an old house with a spectacular view overlooking Knysna. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. When we arrived from the airport we were starved and though it was 3pm and we needed to get going to make our sunset cruise, they were kind enough to make us a quick sandwich. There are two very...

With an incredible location this historically special house offers luxury accommodation and friendly service. The views and gardens are spectacular, and the rooms beautifully decorated. Snug gowns, a powerful shower and a great breakfast put the finishing touches on a great stay.

So much has already been written about this property that I cannot add to what have been superlative reviews. It's brilliant. One small moan about the wifi, which was very slow. Otherwise faultless. Highly recommended

This manor house is so warm and inviting...the decor is a mix of modern and classic Victoriana, with overstuffed chairs aside a large stone fireplace (so nice on a cold, rainy night to have a cocktail here before dinner)...Rooms require climbing stairs--no elevator--and are cozy and well-appointed...amenities are modern, bathrooms are updated yet keep to classic style...Dinner in the small...

Manor View was a wonderful place to stay. It was elegant and spacious. The bath was very large and the heated floors and towel racks were a bonus. Of all the places we stayed in South Africa I would say this was the best!!! And the price was reasonable. We thought the food was great as well and ate 2...
