We had friends staying around the corner and we're looking for a place for two nights. All OK and clean. They had an delighted stay and would return anytime back. Safe parking given and not the last time we use Amber Lodge.

Staying at the Amber guesthouse you have great views over Knysna - though as it is a bit out of the centre, it is best to have a car to get around. The room was clean and the staff helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed the view over the lagune. The room was nice furnished and bright and got a big bathroom. The breakfast was really good too and we felt cordially welcomed. So we can very much recommend the Amber Guest Lodge.
