Hello Karin Thank you for the review on your stay with us at Hide-Away Guest House. We do apologise that the internet was not working to your satisfaction. We have since ascertained that the national service provider (Telkom) has been working on upgrading the internet systems country wide and we believe you were here during one of their "down times"....

Hide Away Guesthouse was the perfect place to spend three "recovering" days on our three weeks adventure trip to South Africa. The guest house management help us to make the visit in Knysna a memorable experience.

We got a warm welcome at the hide away guesthouse from de friendy owner. The guesthouse lies in walking distance from the center of Knysna and the waterfront. The breakfast was excellent. Our stay was just for one night so a little short for this nice place.

Comfortable rooms, great views and a wonderful welcome. We had three rooms side by side which were perfect for our group to share the balcony together. Breakfast was fantastic too! Everything in Kynsna was in easy access with great recommendations from our host.

Wonderful, warm hospitality in a setting that has been excellent planned. Rooms were elegantly simple yet without compromising on little luxuries and conveniences. Breakfasts were delicious. Some noise from the road the only con but far outweighed by all the pros. Great position and views with easy access to all of Knysna.
