Having been lucky enough to travel extensively throughout SA and the world as part of the music industry I must say that every time I drive into the gates at Brenton Hill I breathe a sigh of relief.

We just returned from a 3 weeks trip with 4 little children to South Africa. We stayed in many different apartments and hotels, but this one is definitely the best. It is the perfect place for families with kids: It is huge, quiet, and has all the facilities a family would need, an enormous playground outside where the kids can... More

We spent 5 very happy nights at Brenton Hill in August 2014. We were two couples, a baby and a granny and each every one of us enjoyed ourselves. We stayed in Weavers Nest where each (large) room has its own bathroom. There is one inter-leading room which would be suitable for parents and children. It was like staying at... More

This venue was the perfect family self catering spot in Knysna. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect as it is outside the Knysna but close enough to visit all the attractions. We even had a great Easter egg hunt with all the community on Easter Sunday. The view was amazing. The room was large with... More

We spent two nights here in March. Accommodation is spacious and well-equipped. The views from the bedrooms and from the gardens & verandah are simply stunning. The unit is in a secluded location two thirds way up a hill that overlooks the Knysna lagoon, with the mountains behind that. It is a ten minute drive from Knysna, easy to find,... More

First impressions weren't bad, the location seemed nice and the views were pretty enough, but we soon realised that Brenton Hill was far from idyllic. The accommodation was fairly basic and in desperate need of updating. There was a small communal pool on the owners property, but as the owners and their children were always in it, we didn't feel...
