We stayed here with our children for three nights and can only emphasize the great hospitality. Penny and Mike, our hosts, have this sense for creating an atmosphere which makes you feel welcome and at home from the very first moment on. On two of the three evenings they prepared an outstanding meal for us. The rooms are tastefully equipped...

A warm and friendly atmosphere with a lovely view, in this somewhat quieter neighbouring town of Knysna. Mike and Penny were fantastic hosts and upgraded us to a bigger room at no charge, which made our Honeymoon that much better. We will stay here in Brenton-On-Sea every time we travel past Knysna!

Dolphins Hill is a cosy B&B in Brenton on Sea near. The rooms are decorated with love for the detail. Everythings fits and a lot of things are created by the host himself. Overlooking Buffalo Bay you enjoy delicious breakfast and if you like even dinner. Be sure, Mike and Penny serve lovely food or just do an original African...

We stayed for 6 nights in the Beach Suite and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The B&B is small, with only 3 rooms and an eating/TV area with a cosy wood fire. Our bedroom was airy and decorated in a very nice 'beachhouse' style, personally designed and created by Penny and Mike. The king-size bed was very comfortable....
