Nice place on the hill with views of the lagoon. Our suite was nice and clean and had the most comfortable bed! Secure car park, great welcome from Fran, and our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast is extra if you want it, but we went to East Head Cafe.

When checking out, we were asked by the Werner, the host, to settle the bill for the breakfast. As we said we booked and paid already for breakfast (we had booked with Nightsbridge) and presented our receipt which said "Bed&Breakfast", he told us it only means the "type of accomodation". Also the sum we had paid in advance didn't convince...

Hi Merino I am deeply sorry for the unfortunate incident you had when you checked out. Werner should have made sure of his facts before insisting on payment. He is no longer employed by me but I cannot apologize enough for this. I was unaware of this until I read your review. Please allow me to make this up to...

We had a great time at Hamilton Manor. Werner went "over and above" to ensure everything went well. Staff rearranged furniture to allow more space - location is excellent and views are amazing. Taxi was arranged for evening outing and assistance offered in the evening - brilliant

So glad we booked Hamilton Manor as our base to visit the many places in and around Knysna. As soon as we arrived we were offered a drink which was served on the terrace. I had seen photos of the view over the lagoon but they do not do it justice. What a beautiful view! We were then taken to...

The view is wonderful and the rooms divine. We were treated so well by General Manager, Werne, we felt like one of the family! The breakfast is also recommended. Our only regret is that we stayed only one night.

Everything was more than perfect: lovely manager Werner, breakfast, rooms, view. When we arrived we immediately regretted not staying longer. The only small thing that bugged us was the loud fridge in the room. It also felt very safe there which is important in South Africa. According to the manager, they have never had an issue with crime, only with...

The view is simply amazing! It's a small hotel located in a nice area although the drive to the Manor itself it pretty steep. The manager was very friendly and helpful and recommended a really nice restaurant to eat. The bathroom was overall clean but there were really tiny molds on the lower parts of the walls (which is always...

My friend and I decided to stay at this place since it had the highest review on Air BnB. The view is certainly beautiful and the place is in a very nice part of town. We locked our room and left to see the city. When we came back we saw that they had cleaned the room (which was very...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were treated like royalty from the moment we got a friendly courtesy call to the time we left. Werner, the manager provided great information on places to go and things to do. We are definitely coming back!!! Its a fabulous place.
