Very friendly staf that where helpful to help you with trips of reserve restaurants. Our room was very spacious and everything you need. The view from the garden was perfect over the Knysna lagoon. I would recommend this to other people.

If you are going through all the guesthouses on TA in Knysna to find a nice place to stay, don't go any further than this. Get hold of Werner and make your booking. This is the certainly one of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in. Werner is an amazing host - nothing is too much for him.... More

From the very start, with Werner coming down town to guide us (because we got lost) , this was a great stay. Beautiful views, comfortable bed, such willing service, immaculate surrounds and amazing breakfasts, we.highly recommend it. Coming from Australia, its very reasonably priced as well.
