Knysna and its surrounding areas offer a wealth of attractions, from beautiful beaches to outstanding golf courses, thick forest, wildlife, adventure activities of all kinds, as well as excellent restaurants. Forget-Me-Not is a very comfortable, well appointed guest house situated close to the Lagoon, with beautiful views and warm, welcoming hosts, Mary and Derek. Outstanding value!!

We only stayed for one night, but we would definitely recommend it to everyone. Next time we will stay longer. What a stunning view over the harbour.

Forget-me-Not is everything one looks for in a B&B; a warm friendly greeting; clean, comfortable accommodation that feels like home; and Mary and Derek readily ensure you are quickly orientated to Knysna, so that you can get the most from your stay. The ability to come and go as you please in the self contained, self catering units makes for...

Our hosts, Derek and Mary, were attentive and knowledgable about Knysna. They made us feel so welcome and gave great advice on activities in the area. We had children of a variety of ages with us, and yet we found there was something for everyone: boat trips, picnics, hikes with stunning views, restaurants and farmers' markets. Although we were there...

The rooms were extremely comfortable and well furnished. The breakfasts were elegantly served on a beautiful deck overlooking the magnificent view of the Knysna Heads. Our hosts were warm, friendly and very helpful.

Spending a few days staying at Forget-Me-Not in Knysna after a hectic school year in Dubai is the perfect antidote to living and working in a frantic city. Being able to sit on the deck in the warm winter sun and watch the waters for the Knysna lagoon ebb and flow was all the therapy I needed. The Nest (the...

During the World Cup, we had 3 nights at Forget-Me-Not in Knysna. I booked on the back of the TripAdvisor site reviews, and was pleasantly surprised to see the prices being charged weren't the usual rip-off prices being charged by most places during the World Cup. From the directions on the website, FMN is quite easy to find. Once you...

We have just returned from another wonderful stay in Knysna. This time our group comprised of two Moms, three teenagers and a nine year old.
