We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Falcons View Manor. The staff was efficient and helpful and we loved the building itself. The facility has all of the charm of an older building; yet, the bathrooms were totally updated and delightful.

Fortunate development as dinner was excellent - as was breakfast - is this charming old home of one of the 'founding families' of Knysna nor owned by a European couple who have clearly paid attention to their guests creature...

It is very hard to add anything more to the recent comments already made about Falcons View but I am going to try. First and foremost, hospitality is all about the people who are providing the service. Sue and Danelle (I hope I spelt her name correctly) and the rest of the team have created something very special. The property...

We stayed at Falons View Manor in August while travelling along the Garden Route, what an hidden gem this hotel is! Sue and her staff were very hospitable and made our party feel most welcome from when we arrived until we checked out. The rooms were wonderfully decorated and the food was very very good too.... I can't say enough...

We booked this hotel based on TA reviews, and we were not disappointed. It is situated up a steep street and has panoramic views over Knysna and the water to the "heads". Sitting on the terrace sipping a drink at sunset and watching the view was magical. We stayed for 3 nights upstairs in the main house, which reminded me...

I honestly can't think of a thing that wasn't perfect here. First of all the buildings are beautiful and gracious, perched on the side of a hill overlooking the town and the harbor all the way out to the famous headlands. The staff were friendly, responsive and professional in every way. My partner and I spent two nights in one...

My travel agency booked this B&B for us and is one of the best places we stayed at during our 2.5 week trip in Africa.

Delightful hotel overlooking the town and lagoon from a vantage point near the top of a hill. It has superb history and character and is beautifully appointed. There were lovely public rooms and gardens. Our bedroom was lovely, the staff efficient, friendly and helpful. We had an excellent evening meal and the breakfast fare was fresh and plentiful.
