We spent 3 nights in this nice accommodation. The room we had was lovely and bright, as well as being spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served out on the main veranda / patio with superb views of the bay. We also enjoyed the walk down to the waterfront in the evenings. A couple of points regarding our stay.

The place is just amazing. Our apartment had 2 rooms and was perfect for 2 couples. The view of Knysna lagoon was beautiful. The owner is extremely frindly and helped us with a lot of tips about the city.

Owner Fran and her crew is very supportive and made our stay wonderful. Nothing we could wish more during our too short stay. The area is beautiful and the view over the harbour is magnificent. It is a nice and light walk to the harbour. When possible we will surely come back.

We stayed at Hamilton for two nights. We were welcomed by Fran, the owner, at arrival. Very helpful and friendly. We were a group of 9 retirement ladies and did liked the spacious rooms. The views from each room are to the lagoons. Wonderful views from the top and only 1 km away from the waterfront. The breakfasts were great....

This a lovely property with nice rooms and a beautiful view. The room was very good value for money and the host was friendly and informative. The thing that let it down was the fact that housekeeping moved all of the items we had on tables etc and put them away in various draws, this was irritating as they should...

Thank you for the review, I have spoken to the staff and told them not to move anything from counters only if clothes are lying on the floor as they need to vacuum the carpet. They understand not too touch anything and it is not usually done, however I have started a new staff member who was over enthusiastic and...

You have a wonderful view to the lagoon of Knysna. The room was perfect and very clean. Fran is very kind and has a lot of good recommendations. The breakfast is very good and offers a variety of cheese and cold meats. A perfect place to stay in Knysna!

Nice place on the hill with views of the lagoon. Our suite was nice and clean and had the most comfortable bed! Secure car park, great welcome from Fran, and our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast is extra if you want it, but we went to East Head Cafe.

When checking out, we were asked by the Werner, the host, to settle the bill for the breakfast. As we said we booked and paid already for breakfast (we had booked with Nightsbridge) and presented our receipt which said "Bed&Breakfast", he told us it only means the "type of accomodation". Also the sum we had paid in advance didn't convince...

Hi Merino I am deeply sorry for the unfortunate incident you had when you checked out. Werner should have made sure of his facts before insisting on payment. He is no longer employed by me but I cannot apologize enough for this. I was unaware of this until I read your review. Please allow me to make this up to...
