My husband and I stayed 5 nights in Studio 1 at Armadillo Studios (Dec. 28, 2009 until Jan. 2, 2010). We can only confirm all the good reports on Armadillo Studios which are on TripAdvisor. The place is absolutely fantastic. Is is in a quiet area, immaculate, clean and the attention on details in the studios is great. The hosts...

After a week and a half of rainy sightseeing in and around Cape Town, it felt that our holiday really began when we arrived at Armadillo Studios. David and Marion were very friendly and gave us some great tips on what to see and do and where to eat. Our large studio was spotless and well equipped, so we enjoyed...

From the moment we arrived Marion and David were extremely friendly, helpful and informed hosts and this made our stay in Knysna memorable. Marion assisted in booking our day trips and knew all the great restaurants and cafes in the town - we didn't have one bad meal in Knysna. The studio room we booked at Armadillo Studios was extremely...

Our second four-day visit at Armadillo was just as wonderful as the one year earlier. Marion and David are wonderful hosts, they fulfil whatever requests you may have, booking golf, reserving tables (well worh listening to Marion's updated ins and outs in that field), helping out with inconvenient phone calls to car hire companies (thank you David!) etc. The rooms...

What makes a B&B special?, well for some its the setting, for other the comfort or the location. Where Armadillo Studios is concerned it’s a combination of things that add up to a feeling that you don’t really want to leave just yet (we stayed 3 nights). Let’s start with your hosts Marion and David. Both are very friendly and...

The owners Marion and David could not be more friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Accomodation was excellent, rooms very spacious and tasteful. An extremely good breakfast was served on the upstairs decking overlooking the very attractive gardens and swimming pool (larger and more inviting than any of the other guest houses we visited.) There was a barbecue...

David and Marion's Armadillo Studios is an idyllic place, up on the hill overlooking Knysna. Being a designer, David has created -- or rather they have both created -- a guest house of remarkable beauty and comfort as the website shows. The rooms are exceptionally well appointed and the garden quite lovely using, as it does, local plants. They are...
