We were welcomed with a glass of wine and it was a great pleasure to sit on the balcony and enjoy the vastness of the garden. Resnia was very helpful on advising where to go, where to eat and...

We chatted over a glass of wine things in common, politics, Afica and must do's in the area and of course the English weather - lovely. Rooms all functional with a nice balcony area, a delightful splash pool for a dip at the end of the...

The beds were so comfortable, the best this trip! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden and then we were on our way. The restaurant we were recommended in Knysna was perfect thank you.

Nice establishment. Bedroom nice but not overly big. Rooms all have a lovely terrace space. Well maintained garden and pool. Breakfast perfectly satisfactory. Not as friendly as some places we stayed.

My wife and I stayed at Pumula Lodge two nights at the beginning of February 2016. Our spacious room had beautiful terrace with nice view on beautiful garden with lots of birds. Small lodge with family atmosphere. Location is OK, just short drive to all attractions around Knysna. Also the price was OK.

A lovely setting with balconies overlooking a garden and pool. It lies half way between the Heads and the town so a car is needed to get to restaurants etc, but the nearest is only a 5 minute drive, as is Leisure Island, a delightful place. Rensia was extremely welcoming and helpful in suggesting activities to make the most of...

Friendly reception, beautifully appointed, easy to find, good breakfast in wonderful surroundings. An overall good experience. I would like to suggest that you install a railing into the pool for those of us "oldies" who still love to swim but need a little help.
