After a long trip, i received a warm, homely welcome from Janet. Facilities were excellent, in terms of cleanliness, food, assistance, etc. I will certainly be staying at Amber Guest Lodge again for the 2017 Knysna Celtic Festival! Thanks Janet. You are a gem

We had friends staying around the corner and we're looking for a place for two nights. All OK and clean. They had an delighted stay and would return anytime back. Safe parking given and not the last time we use Amber Lodge.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Yes, our dog is most popular with all our guests, even those who are afraid of dogs because she is so gentle. I am glad you enjoyed the views.

Staying at the Amber guesthouse you have great views over Knysna - though as it is a bit out of the centre, it is best to have a car to get around. The room was clean and the staff helpful and friendly.
