We stayed one night as part of a tour travelling down The a Garden Route. It's a nice location but the accommodation is pretty basic and dated. I understand the new owners have plans to upgrade the venue. I'd suggest that was an essential. Given it was just a stopover it was fine but I wouldn't have wanted to stay...

Very friendly proprietors who make breakfast for you. Overall, it’s a fine 3-star establishment and has nice views. It feels a bit dated, though. We heard they may consider some renovations in the future. Wifi is only available in the breakfast room, not in the rooms. TV is tiny. The room we had had two floors with a sleeper couch...

Everything about this accommodation was perfect. The management was very cordial and made a great breakfast. Our views were perfect, overlooking the lagoon. And our room was more like an apartment. What a treat!

Stayed there for a night out of the season though. But an amazing place, great rooms and great view from the rooms. Rooms were cosy with a place for fire too. Owners were very helpful. Breakfast was good too. Recommend this place for couples and families too.

Stayed out of season when it was very quiet, but thoroughly recommended. Chris really looked after us, ensuring we not only had a cracking breakfast every morning, but knew the best places to visit and eat in the daytime. Lodges are very spacious and well equipped. A little out of town so a car is essential.

We haven't stayed here for a while but stayed here many times when we lived in Cape Town. The whole family are wonderful people and the atmosphere is so calm and welcoming. We followed a lucky signpost one day, arrived unannounced and were welcomed so warmly. We have taken friends here over the years and they have all loved it....

We too were on a Garden Route tour with this property pre-selected as part of the itinerary. We arrived on a wet, windy dreary afternoon and were met by our cheerful host Chris who runs the place with wife Gelia and her parents. We found the kitchen well stocked with wine and water "to go" on the honor system and...

“Make sure you get a room with a view of the Knysna lagoon...the changing light at different times of the day is beautiful. And in winter, bring some layered clothing as the small electric heater does work to keep up in bad weather...yet that's part of the romance too!”
