Very friendly staff. Fantastic view over lagune! Great location. Breakfest is ok, not too much choice. Bed was fantastic. We had 1 evening dinner in the restaurant: superb! Nice swimmingpool to relax.

Great to meet the owners who were also extremely welcoming and entertaining. Food great would...

Location offers perfect views (situated on a hill), harbour front and Knysna Heads in easy driving distance. Rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. Food in the restaurant is absolutely perfect, well worth trying. Together with an overall very warm and friendly service, this is a perfect place to stay in Knysna.

The view from the veranda is magnificent especially when you sit in one of the easy chairs and watch the sunset with a tall drink in you hand before adjourning to the dinner for one of the chiefs delicious meals.

Very friendly staff and spectacular view. The food was excellent. It is a short trip to drive downtown by car. Various possibilities to shop or to choose between different restaurants. I will recommend Falcons View Manor to my friends.

This hotel is at the top of a steep hill in Knysna which gives it the opportunity for beautiful views across the lagoon. Set in immaculately manicured gardens everything about this place is delightful. The service from Danielle, Sue and Jacky was exemplary and the food at breakfast and dinner was delicious.
