The manor is well situated if you are looking to stay in the center of Knysna as it is closed to all the amenities. If you need some silence far from the busy city, then the location is not ideal. The service is great, breakfast superb and Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and very...

We spent two nights in November at Knysna Manor House, which lives up to its gracious name. Our room was spacious with sparkling white linen on the king size bed. Breakfast was served in the rather lovely dining room and we enjoyed sundowners on the deck, from which you can see the Lagoon. There was secure parking for our car,...

Firstly, I must apologise about the wi-fi, we have had numerous people in to try and get the range extender sorted, but due to thick walls of the guesthouse, sometimes it does not get through. It is however available in public areas (I find it better to connect in reception, then go to where you are). We are glad that...

I arrived at the Knysa Manor House in the evening and was greeted by the lovely Brenda, who was so kind and thoughtful in showing me where I could make some toast for dinner rather than going out after dark.

Stopped here whilst travelling along the garden route from PE to Cape Town. The Manor House was in a great location, taking about 2 minutes to drive to the waterfront where we booked a boat trip to see the heads. The room was clean and had everything we needed, including wifi and a tv with movie channels. In the morning...

There are many rooms available however the flat is very spacious and pristinely clean, however due to a nearby local night spot the noise levels are incredibly high until the early hours of the morning, otherwise extremely well located and very good value for money. The hosts are very friendly and the breakfast delicious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Knysna Manor House is a 3 star, AA Highly Recommended Knysna guesthouse offering B&B accommodation on the Garden Route. It is a unique Bed and Breakfast that combines the charm of times gone by with modern amenities. Built in 1896, the guest house was the original home of the mayor of Knysna and was converted into a B&B in the 1980's. Knysna Manor House guesthouse is housed in a charming Victorian mansion located in the centre of town, overlooking the stunning Knysna Lagoon and is within a 2-5 minute walk of local shops, banks, craft markets, restaurants and the Knysna Waterfront. This Knysna accommodation consists of 13 en-suite rooms that have all been lovingly furnished and equipped with modern amenities including tea trays, a hairdryer (availale at reception), heaters, fans, additional blankets, tea/coffee making facilities. The majority of these rooms have a mini fridge. We have now opened up a self catering flat, which can accommodate two adults and two children. Guests can enjoy "Free Wi-Fi" Internet access in public areas, and in some rooms. We are working with the service provider to hopefully have the entire guesthouse wi-fi enabled. Breakfast is served from 7 - 9 either in the breakfast room, or on the deck overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The deck offers guests stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon and Knysna Heads, and is a quiet place to end the day after finishing one of the many day trips around Knysna. These include the hauntingly beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, George and Plettenberg Bay. We are a 3 Star, AA Highly Recommended accommodation provider. ... more   less
