This guest house has several rooms/suites and I only saw two of them. The suite we had was not as nice as the other suite I saw.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We will certainly look at the bathroom lighting. I hope your husband's leg is better. If you come again, please book the Executive Suite which is the largest room with the best views.

We stayed two nights during our last trip in Sudafrica, two families in two Rooms. Both of them are really good: big space, clean and complete of every necessity. Breakfast is prepared directly by the owners and is really complete. Cortesy and smile from them.

My husband and I really enjoyed the clean, modern room and Janet's welcome! It's very quiet and we slept incredibly well. There are good restaurants and lots to see and do a 10-minute drive away. Breakfast is delicious.

After a long trip, i received a warm, homely welcome from Janet. Facilities were excellent, in terms of cleanliness, food, assistance, etc. I will certainly be staying at Amber Guest Lodge again for the 2017 Knysna Celtic Festival! Thanks Janet. You are a gem
