Crewe, Cheshire
Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

This beautiful accommodation has an amazing view directly above the ocean supplemented by the loud continuous roar of the waves. The breakfast is more than excellent value with a good choice, the highlight being the huge and tasty omelette. Good restaurants are close by and it is certainly not necessary to drive to busy Knysna for an excellent evening meal....

We chose this place as we wanted to be outside of Knysna and directly on the sea. I must say that it is a 15 minutes drive to Knysna and in Brenton there is only one restaurant, so we found ourselves driving back and forth. Our room was large with basic furniture, a kitchenette and a small sitting area. The...

Our room was clean and big enough. The view from the room was stunning. The beach is only a short walk away and there are some restaurants that were quite good. The garage was next to our room which is helpful when unloading the luggage.

The setting for this guest house is fantastic. The views over the sea are incredible and Brenton-on-Sea itself is a beautiful, quiet area. The room we stayed in was also very comfortably appointed and just what we needed for a relaxing night away.
