We stayed for one night at Knysna Stays. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed at the Wilderness Suite, a very nice, clean, modern and spacious room with a balcony and great view over the lagoon. The breakfast area is very nice and we had a great breakfast near the pool. Thank you to the whole Knysna Stays...

We had a lovely modern room with a nice veranda and a view of the lagoon. The room was well equipped apart from not having a fridge (though a communal fridge/freezer/ice machine was available). Good wifi. Good shower. Comfortable bed but rather let down by having a heavy duvet cover. Even with the aircon, in January we found it far...

We had a lovely visit at Knysna Stays. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the whole place was a delight. We were fantastically looked after by Rose, who couldn't have been more helpful. Lloyd was fantastic at providing some suggestions on things to do in our visit.

We stayed one night at Knysna Stays. They welcome was great and we felt safe behind a sliding gate that remained shut. Very friendly staff and very clean accommodation.

Wonderful welcome from Rose and stunning suite with a view of Thesen Island and Knysna Heads. 2 night stay and looking forwards to both nights. Residential location hides a lovely complex, electric gate entry and modern and well appointed rooms.
