Our stay at Narnia Guesthouse was just lovely!! A view overlooking the Knysna lagoon is absolutely breathtaking. On top of the view, the property is amazing with an extraordinary garden. Included is a beautiful pond with the added bonus of a picturesque tree with a swing! If that wasn't enough, the host Stella and her amazing team made the stay...

Really enjoyed our stay at the pool house which had everything we needed for self catering. It had lots of character. The pool was great and a decent size. Two beautiful friendly dogs also and friendly owners. Will visit again one day.

The great unexpected things here were 1. The amazing garden. I went to sleep at night just seeing flowers 2. Value for money particularly as rooms were serviced with no extra charge and bags were carried. This is what hospitality is about - if I have someone to stay in my home I offer to help with their bags -...

We absolutely loved our stay at Narnia. The Pool Room was perfect for our little family of three, adjacent to the pool, and giving us the option to self cater or take B&B. We had the latter and the breakfasts were delicious, fresh and varied. It was lovely to prepare our own supper and sit out overlooking the pool and...

A last minute decision to spend Christmas in Knysna made it difficult to find good accommodation for 2 couples for 5 days over the holiday! What a lovely surprise to find Narnia had just the perfect option for us and when we drove up the hill into the property we instantly felt the peace and tranquility of the property. What...

We had a wonderful experience here and the lady of the house and her staff are full of bounce and care; the rooms were clean and comfortable! The surrounds were tranquil and relaxing almost as if we were in another land.

Spent 3 nights here and loved the accommodation, the stunning views and the peace and quiet. The Lookout is very stylish in a relaxed way and has all that is needed for a comfortable stay. The gardens around the main house are delightful and it was a real bonus to be able to use the pool that has views over...

We loved staying here! We had the lookout and the pool house, both were very clean, stylish and spacious. We found Narnia easily and were blown away by the views across the bay. We wouldn't have wanted to to be down in Knysna bay so the location suited us perfectly. The two dogs were very friendly especially Talulah and it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Narnia Guest House provides affordable bed and breakfast accommodation and self-catering accommodation in Knysna. Situated on top of a hill, we surrounded by majestic views of the Knysna Heads (famous entrance to the sea), Knysna lagoon, the Knysna river and the Garden Route's Outeniqua mountains, this stone and timber guest house nestles in an acre of award winning gardens, visited by 180 species of bird and small wildlife such as bush buck, lynx, monkeys and bushpig.You would be hard pressed to find a better location to stay. Just 2 kms from the town of Knysna with its fabulous shops and restaurants, beaches within 10 kms, forest walks closeby, Plettenberg Bay 30 kms away and both the Tsitsikamma National Park and Oudtshoorn easy day trips.The Guest House is eclectic and intriguing with a mix of building materials, most of which were found on site. The salt water pool is a delight in summer and boasts a view of the mountains very difficult to beat. Geyser water is solar heated, the owners collect glass and tin to recycle, the gardens are watered from dams and are fed with worm farmed compost and an organic veggie garden supplies whoever needs what is being picked on the day.This is a place looked after, with love, by staff who have worked here for over 15 years and looked after guests for 12. Bed and Breakfast guests are treated to a fun drum call by Nomic. Mavis and Natalie make sure your room is spotless and your flowers in the bathroom fresh. ... more   less
