Wonderful position, wonderful view, wonderful staff. Large beautiful rooms - ours had a massive bathroom too. Excellent breakfasts, with plenty of fresh fruit and good cooked options. Dinners excellent too - 3 choices for each course. High quality cooking and presentation. Beautiful grounds and swimming pool. Highly recommended

This hotel is at the top of a steep hill in Knysna which gives it the opportunity for beautiful views across the lagoon. Set in immaculately manicured gardens everything about this place is delightful. The service from Danielle, Sue and Jacky was exemplary and the food at breakfast and dinner was delicious.

Service cannot be paralleled. Rooms spacious and very comfortable. Fine dining and fine decor. House with character and historical value. Views of Knysna from the top amazing. Excellent value for money.

The last 3 days have been amazing ! We stayed at Falcons View Manor as part of a tour booked in the U.K. From the minute we arrived( to be greeted with a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc to drink on the terrace overlooking the lagoon) this felt special. Our room, number 5, was simply stunning, beautifully presented and well...
