    Feels like home ”

    The hosts are super nice! The breakfast is great! I love the river view !

    It was an unforgettable experience.If we visit South Africa next time ,we will back there definitely . It was beautiful that when you wake up, fabulous breakfast is waiting you. The hosts greet you with smiles . I love to let their dogs lay besides me . Thanks to Mark and Sam's help, we planned our everyday activities and it was really fun. They know Knysna so well and it helped a lot. It was a worry free time staying in Knysna!

    Very pleasant”

    Beautiful room, setting, staff attentiveness

    Kanonkop sits at the top of a hill overlooking the lovely waterfront in Knysna. Our room did not have a water view, but was really well appointed and comfortable. Mark, the owner's son, was incredibly warm & gracious and brought our horde of luggage from the car to our room. Chris, the owner, welcomes you with a drink and a chat and offers free drinks for your stay. The breakfast is pretty standard for the area - which means very good - with fruit/yogurt to begin and fresh eggs cooked to your liking. Everything is done professionally and courteously at the hotel. My only small complaint is that Chris does try to nudge visitors to places where he obviously gets a referral payment. I wouldn't mention this but for the fact he tried to talk us out of dinner plans we had made at Emily Moon's (fantastic place!) in favor of a restaurant he had booked for us (without our request/knowledge)prior to arrival. Aside from this small issue, the stay was pretty perfect.

    Fantastic stay”

    The hosts, the room

    Wow! What a great guest house. The incredibly friendly owners have thought of everything. The attention to detail is very thoughtful. The heated floors and towel warmer were very welcome on a chilly winter night. The luxury bath products and gourmet chocolate were a nice touch. They have really thought of everything to make you feel pampered and help you have an enjoyable stay. My only regret is that I only stayed one night. Highly recommend!
