Room clean and big overlooking the lake of Knysna. Breakfast nice but everything was extremely impersonal. No warmth, no real welcome. Felt like a hotel. The building itself looks cold when you arrive

Enjoyed our stay. Omelets was very very good. Thanks for putting the flowers and chocolates on my daughter's bed as requested. Only our pillows was not very comfortable - to flat and bed a bit hard. Further awesome stay. Thanks

The guesthouse lack the specialty factor that will push it to be a four star. The room were clean with a good view but the bed in room nr4 really need to be replaced. It is surely the most uncomfortable bed that we ever slept on. The breakfast was below standard for a 4 star.

We enjoyed our stay. It was comfortable. The room was nice and big and the bathroom was the right size. We like the little box in the bathroom with all the toiletries in it. Breakfast was good with excellent service.

Very good place on hill , direct view to back water. Perfect for holiday . U must have your own vehicle. We don't have our own vehicle so that we have to take taxi. I thought it was very costly comparatively in India. But even u can walk down as well. After 6 pm it's difficult to find people on...

Nicely positioned - close to town and with a beautiful view over Knysna. Room was spacious and there was always someone to help. Thanks to those who woke up early to provide breakfast before the marathon!
