What a gem, the views from here are truly stunning. You look over the lagoon towards the Heads. Sipping on a Sundowner at dusk is so relaxing when you have this view. The gardens are gorgeous to walk around. We had the Honeymoon suite, huge bedroom and lounge with private patio. The food in the restaurant was excellent, very efficient...

Falcons View Manor sits on a hill that overlooks the lagoon at Knysna and the view is stunning. We had a very large and comfortable room.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights from 30th Dec 2016 – 2nd Jan 2017. We had a lovely time here and I would not hesitate to recommend this place or return ourselves.

From the moment we arrived Sue, Celesty and the rest of the staff made us feel right at home. Fantastic customer service - anticipating your every need. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

We decided to try an alternative to the Knysna Waterfront hotel where we usually stay and mistakenly thought Falcons View Manor was on Thesen Island. I was apprehensive when I realised it was not the case but what a pleasant surprise! The warm welcome, the personal interest, efficient service and stunning view have influenced our decision to use the hotel...

The staff were amazing. They were so helpful and really made our stay enjoyable. The view from the front veranda is gorgeous and the perfect place to enjoy a drink or cup of tea. It's the perfect place if you would like a short drive from the busy waterfront but completely away from it when you just want to relax....
