Very nice place, our room was very spacious. Bathroom provided both a tub and shower, and two sinks. Deck was great to visit out on, we ordered pizza one night and had it delivered. If you are allergic to dogs then you might not want to stay here as there were two dogs roaming freely- more so during breakfast time....

Hi Tillie and Earl, Thank you for your positive review, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed it here. I think misunderstanding. The first morning at breakfast I asked (some of) your group if they had a problem with the dogs and they unanimously said they loved dogs and were fine with them being around. It is our normal...

We vere travelling the Garden Route and arrived at Knysna Country Hotel on the 25th of January. When we arrived we felt that the room we got did not qualify as the luxury room stated in the itinerary from African Eagle and compared to other location chosen with same room classification. The booking was made in August last year. We...

Dear Bjorg, Let's first establish that the agent booked standard rooms with us and because we only have 3 of those rooms, we had to upgrade some of your friends. When I asked for a booking voucher, in order to establish that you were under the right impression that luxury room were booked, that voucher was not given to the...

Beautiful place with stunning views and wonderful breakfast. We were upgraded to the private 'honeymoon suite', a separate room built near the pool, which obviously was awesome. Very nice owners and staff who know hospitality.

Maybe we had to many expectations after al the beautiful hotels we had till now. They try to be really helpful and kind and also it is situated in a very nice area. The swimmingpool is ok.....

Dear Noel, We are not angry with you, it just the classic example, coming from our experience, seeing you walk into our guesthouse, knowing immediately we cannot please guests like you and we will see a bad review somewhere. And indeed. Our guesthouse is dated (just as everything else that is built) and, more specifically, your room was built 9...

We spent the last two evenings of our vacation at the Knysna Country house. Very welcoming staff and management, warm, comfortable stay.. it is very apparent that there is alot of focus in the detail. Breakfast was very welcomed and went down well.. Thank you for the great stay! We will be back soon

We enjoyed a great stay at Knysna Country House. It was a quiet, lovely country house situated on the hill away from the city centre. Rooms were excellent, soft beds and spacious bathroom. We stayed in the luxury double room which was exactly that, we also had our own private deck. Breakfasts were brilliant, wide selection of food and the...

It is really a excellent site, nothing to complain about staff and host. Breakfast is excellent. I would recommend to care a bit to the rooms which could be quite nice. But: rusty dustbin in bathroom, holes in the wall of livingroom, not 100% cleaned bathroom at the beginning (improved after the 1st. night) Such peanuts decreasing the overall impression...
