For a quiet night halt, this pace is the best value for money. The room is small but really nice and well equipped. I really liked the white finish all around that made it really cool. The bedrooms open into the corridor from which the view of the Knysna lagoon head is beautiful. One can sit and relax here or...

We had a wonderful stay at The Old Cape Road Guest House. The accommodation was perfect and although the house is on the main road into Knysna the room was not at all noisy as there are two sets of doors. Jean could not have been more friendly and helpful to us - we almost felt like we were staying...

We booked this guest house for 3 nights after looking at their website, which shows beautiful views over the Knysna lagoon. In reality below the terrace is the noisy main road into Knysna, and also major construction on the road, making it not only noisy but dusty. There was noone in the guest huse to meet us o arrival, so...

We had a two night stay in September, The room (8) was very comfortable and clean, with a nice balcony to sit out on. The view from the balcony, over the lagoon to the heads was great. Unfortunately there were large scale road works going on directly below the room which made it noisy. As it is very close to...

During my fiance's first trip to South Africa from Glasgow there was no doubt in my mind that a stay at the Old Cape Road Guesthouse was an absolute must!. I had stayed with Barbara and Ernst a few years earlier during a weekend visit to Knysna. The standard of the rooms and service hadn't changed at all. It is...

The Old Cape Road is located just off the N2 highway about 2kms from Knysna waterfront complex. On arrival, we were greeted by a younger chap who works afternoons & evenings on the front desk. He was very friendly and helpful and showed us to our room. The majority of rooms are accessed from a verandah, from which there are...

Wherever is available to stay in Knysna, and there is plenty, you will not find nicer people than Ernest and Barbara at The Old Cape Road Guest House. Originally booked into the excellent Room No. 10 suite on the top floor, which had breathtaking views over the lagoon, but was a little noisy from the road traffic, so Barbara offered...

This is a beautiful place to stay, built on the side of the hill, with an amazing view of the Knysna Heads from the verandah just outside our room. The room was very nice and had real comfy beds. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this Guest House to everyone.

We stayed 1 night at the Old Cape Road in July. It was off-season and I think we were the only guests. We were given a georgeous room with a jacuzzi bath, sitting area, private balcony for about 320 rands per night, which was really steal. There was no breakfast offered due to off-season, but we had a fridge in...
