It is 4 years since we last visited Guinea Fowl Lodge and we enjoyed it just as much as we did originally. The welcome was great with Mart meeting us as before. The views from the rooms are fantastic, looking out over the Heads, and the shopping precinct is very good. There are a number of good restaurants on the...

Pete and Marja are such wonderful hosts. Doing this as a hobby, and doing it with love and care. We also stayed here the previous time we stayed, and had to come back. Beautiful view from their deck, a nice little swimming pool to relax if you do not feel up for going to the town, waterfront or beaches/lagoon. The...

We managed to get the last room during a very busy period. Not large or overlooking the great view, but everything was super clean and comfortable for us. Breakfasts were served and exactly what we requested - on the verandah overlooking the Bay. We walked down to the Waterfront without difficulty and even walked back - although there was a...

Four of us stayed here for three nights earlier this month - a second visit for two of us. Ideal location above the town and overlooking the lagoon and The Heads. Good rooms and great breakfasts. Ideal place to stay in Knysna. No air conditioning but cool rooms and good fans.

The room had a lovely balcony providing awesome views of the head. This was the only highlight. The rooms are sufficiently spaced..and comfortable. The breakfast options for vegetarians are a turn down. Request for a simple hash browns or baked beans was also refused. This was the only sour thing on the entire stay.

We greatly appreciated Mart & Pete's advice and information. They served delicious breakfasts on the balcony with views to Knysna Heads. The bed was comfy and we appreciated having our own private outside space. There was a communal fridge which we found useful and enjoyed swimming in their pool. The one thing which we would liked was to have internet...

Pete and Mart are the most special hosts. I love returning for my business trips as I know my gorgeous room awaits. From the meticulously decorated rooms, to the glorious breakfasts... you can't go wrong booking in here! Your only disappointment might be that they are fully booked!

We stayed here two nights after a reckomendation fron Swedish friends and we were most happy to have discovered this cosy, friendly and beautiful lodge. Mart and Pete are wonderful owners and hosts. Pete tells about South Africa and you can learn a lot from him. The cooked breakfasts were to die for!

This place was totally perfect! Nestled into the hills above the bay with beautiful views and close walking distance into the downtown. The hosts were incredible, offering local knowledge and advice, great conversation, and delicious breakfasts! Loved it here!
