We were only for one night, but I would return for a relaxing week! The place is quiet and the view is really peaceful. The host is amazing! He took care of every detail to make our stay unforgettable. It's a cozy point to feel like home, no luxury required!

We booked into the Point Lodge with our group (African Hopper Tours) and were greeted by the friendly owner Ryk. The rooms are all very very good with comfortable beds and all other amenities. There is even an honesty bar in the pub area. The views of the lagoon are stunning and breakfast served was great. Thank you Ryk and...

We selected the point Lodge because it was available and inexpensive on what is a very busy weekend for knysna. I wasn't expecting much. I was totally blown away. The host, Ray, could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The room, knysna room, was large, clean and airy. The location is just off the main highway but you...

Forget 5 star luxury the owner and staff make you feel so welcome, very warm and sincere. With such an amazing knowledge of the local scene Ryk will guide you to the best places to see, eat and play Golf. No need for a Travel agent. The breakfasts are great. Well worth a couple of nights stay.

Ryk is the owner who has been in the business some 20 years. This is our 3 time of staying. It is probably THE guesthouse that feels like it is your own home but where you have someone who makes great breakfasts, will suddenly appear, when needed, for providing ice at the honesty bar; to advise on places to visit;...

Fab owners, amazing views, great breakfast. We had a great stay in this well located clean and lovely home. Thanks for making us so comfortable. My daughter loved swimming in the pool, whilst I helped myself to a large G & T and my husband watched the rugby with my son. We hope we will be back soon.

This is a lovely place to stay. The host Ryk is tremendous and gave us some good recommendations. We loved watching and photographing the birds in the morning and an early morning jetty walk. Breakfast was really good - plenty and nice. The place is a little dated and could do with some upgraded beds - with that it would...

Right on the edge of the lagoon. Beautiful location and excellent value for money. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable but could do with a make-over. Good breakfast and very helpful host. We would have appreciated a car wash service.

Great location with magnificent views. We spent 7 nights at Point Lodge, very comfortable accommodation with friendly staff. The owner was very helpful in recommending places to visit and dining. We stayed at the Millwood room which we loved, it's simple and very cosy. Breakfast time too short though.

Spent a total of 3 nights at point Lodge, two nights before our epic bike trip to "Hell and back" and one night after. Point Lodge is in a fabulous location right on the lagoon and only a few minutes drive from the Waterfont, the town centre and Knesen islands. Yoga by the pool on the first morning was idyllic!...
