Kate and Natalie are the most wonderful hosts at this beautiful B&B. The location is perfect just a short walk into Knysna (they have a reliable taxi service to bring you back and save you the walk up hill!) the views from the suites and the breakfast room are simply stunning. Clear views over the lagoon. The property is so...

The location is spectacular, overlooking the Knysna Bay. The room was outstanding - lots of little touches that made you think that the owners had put a lot of thought into the design. The breakfast was excellent. The service was out of this world - the owners had booked a table for us before we arrived at one of the...

This is a beautiful B&B, centrally located, with a magnificent view of the Knysna Heads. Our room, The Kingfisher, was spacious and comfortable; I highly recommend this room because of its uninterrupted view of the Heads. We felt at home within minutes of our arrival at Double Dutch. Kate and Nathalie are perfect hosts; they are warm, thoughtful and attentive,...

I booked the DD on the strength of reviews I had read not knowing knysna at all and certainly wasn't disappointed! We received the best welcome from Kate and Natalie that I've received anywhere - brilliant help in advising us where to visit and eat. The DD is in a great situation with fabulous views over the bay . It...

The energy and enthusiasm from Nathalie and Kate are first class and they couldn't have done any more to make our stay in Knysna better. They shared plenty of tips for good walks and restaurants and were quick to make bookings and reservations for us and they also provided beach towels and a sun shade for our trip to the...

On arrival we received what was easily the warmest welcome of our trip from Kate and Nathalie, who on hearing the news that we had just got engaged 2 days previously, were as excited for us as our own...

We had great 3 days in Knysna and Kate and Nathalie are one of the reasons for that. The Hotel is great and you have a beautiful view over the lagoon.

Kate and Nathalie made us welcome from the first moment and take pleasure in facilitating guests' stay. It is well situated with a view over the lagoon but easy walking down into town and they can arrange for a taxi back up in the evening. The room we had was spacious and very well appointed and we enjoyed sitting on...

This was undoubtedly the best B&B we stayed at during our recent visit to South Africa (and there were others that we would also rate as excellent). Location, accommodation, breakfast, welcome from Kate and Nathalie, all superb. Everything about this place has already been said many times. A real find. Would have absolutely no problems recommending the Double Dutch to...
