          Family Room ”

          The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. He provided great advice on restaurants and activities. We had the family room which is sufficient space for a family of four. The bedding was clean but the bathroom felt tired. My major complaint was how bright the room was through the night. There are two windows in the room and the window coverings do not cover the light from security lights on the patio. It did feel very safe and it was nice that the car could be parked inside and locked gate. Overall good for the price.

          Great for the price!”

          We were really satisfied here! The people at the front desk was really helpful. You get what you pay for but it's clean enough, you get a good enough breakfast and the bed was totally fine! Minus for share bathrooms and plus for being able to park the car inside the gates! Definitely recommend if you want to save some cash on accomodation!

          A cool place to stay in Knysna”

          Could park inside the property. Really liked the open yard with tables. Great owners. A walking distance to 3 top places to eat - Ile de Pain Cafe, Freshline Fisheries and Marco Cafe.

          대체로 모두 만족 했던 곳”

          모든것이 무난하게 만족 스러웠습니다. 아침도 다양하진 않지만 만족스러웠고, 뜨거운 샤워도 만족스럽게 했습니다. 부엌도 편하게 사용하였습니다. 빨래금지가 조금 아쉬운부분입니다.
