Stayed in the 'Pebble Beach' suite. Amazing views from all aspects in the room and fantastic accommodation. Swimming pool was a bonus. Our host Paddy was laid back but incredibly friendly and attentive. What a find!!

Wow, what a view from our suite, Pebble Beach. The entire lagoon and the Heads. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and really couldn't have asked for anything better. Paddy is a great host and together with the ladies cooks up a mean and delicious breakfast. The Heads are an iconic place and it is special to be right there....

On the weekend of our wedding anniversary, we decided to visit Knysna, and found Augusta Bay. This spacious guest house is ably manned by Paddy and his staff. A lovely swimming pool at the centre of the property over-looks the Knysna lagoon, and makes one feel a little as is you are visiting one of the great Italian lakes. Our...

Located at Knysna heads, this is a comfortable hotel and there is a great restaurant close by. Our room had a view of the lagoon, but it was only a glimpse and our balcony was the walkway. Other than this we really enjoyed our stay, even though there was a planned power outage for the first day. We could have...

Had a wonderful time. Will go back any time. The host Paddy is the best. Food fantastic. Paddy made us feel welcome and at home since our arrival. The room was neat with an amazing view. The Guesthouse is also near to a nice restaurant and cocktai bar. Can recommend to make a turn or two.

We stayed for a couple of nights at Augusta Bay in an excellent room. It was large, comfortable, with great views over Knysna Lagoon. The breakfast were excellent. The only drawback to the Guest House where the number of steps to haul luggage up, but we had been pre-warned about this. We'd certainly go back there anytime.

Friends and I did a weekend trip to Knysna and booked in with Augusta Bay. I had some concerns after reading previous reviews but all my worries where immediately pushed aside from the moment we arrived.
