The accommodation was nice but it needs some updates. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was personal and nice. There was no smoking in the rooms but unfortunately the benches outside the rooms had ashtray next to them so when an other guest was smoking outside our room we could smell it in ours.

We came from St LUCIA KwaZulu-Natal to attend our cousin Lani Scholtz wedding to Charles Williams. Our aunt Trix recommended for us to stay at Fynbos. It was so easy to find Fynbos. If you just relax and either pre plan and put the address into your GPS it is very easy to find...else if you just follow the signboards...

Had one night en route. Easy to find, nice room if small but one night was fine. Lovely breakfast and very friendly owners. A good choice. Swimming pool available but didn't try it. Attractive dining room and well furnished - tasteful.

The room we had was very comfortable with all the necessary facilities. The establishment is in a quiet area which made for a very peaceful and pleasant evening and night. The breakfast was very good indeed.

Thank you for the kind review. A bit confusing though, you rave about the area but mark us down on location ? I quote "The establishment is in a quiet area which made for a very peaceful and pleasant evening and night." Anyway, it was a pleasure accommodating you. Best regards Fynbos Team

Very friendly owners and staff. Come visit for a good time and enjoy the relaxing environment. Have a lovely breakfast next to the swimming pool and feel the African sun on your skin. We all need some vitamin D.

I recently stayed for two separate nights at this guest house on my way from Cape Town to Knysna and back. Merinda is a charming and helpful hostess, and the accommodations were very attractive and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, and the small carafe of sherry in the room for a nightcap was a nice touch, as was the fridge....

Thank you for a lovely stay. Thank you for being so accommodating and especially for the more than generous discount that you gave us - we sincerely appreciate it. I was also impressed with the manor in which you served us our breakfast - the nicest by far. Your staff are lovely and a great addition to Fynbos.

The room was big, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great! Hosts were super friendly and helpful. Parking was not a problem. The weather wasn't on our side. Didn't see much of the area. Dinner options were not abundant but good.
