Great quality guesthouse. Lovely rooms and superb facilities. Heard this loud noise outside my room first thing in the morning, thinking someone was filming a Bollywood movie. It stopped-and-started for at least 15 minutes. Eventually I dragged myself out of bed (had no option) to look where the noise comes from, to find an half-deaf 80 year old Asian man...

What a great place! The decor is fantastic and the room clean. It has everything you need as well as a scenic view of the Knysna lagoon. The staff truly made us feel welcome from the time we arrived. Excellent breakfast with a good variety. We will definitely stay here again.

Overmeer was a very pleasant place to stay because it was clean, comfortable, good value and had very friendly and attentive staff. It is a short drive from the town centre, but has adequate parking. The steep drive and steps to our room may not suit folks with hampered mobility. We'd recommend this place to anyone who is happy to...

Great view of the sea. Awesome breakfast in a great environment. Good hospitality and friendly staff. But check out was early at 10 while. Wifi connection was good. Location was a bit difficult to find.

Friendly service, spacious and clean guest rooms together with a very generous breakfast makes Overmeer a perfect place spend a night or three when visiting Knysna. The spectacular view over the lagoon is a wonderful bonus!

The guest house is situated on a hill overlooking the lagoon. We were met by Ludwig, a friendly host, who kindly accommodated quite late check-in on a Friday evening. Our room was lovely and spacious - including a balcony, air conditioner, small kitchenette and en-suite bathroom with a shower. Perfect for a weekend stay. Breakfast was generous, lots of options...

We enjoyed our stay at Overmeer but found it a bit out of the way from town. Our room was large built over a double garage. We had a balcony that had a side view of the lagoon. Breakfast was excellent and the room service was swift. The toilet could have had an extra clean and even a toilet brush...

We had an excellent overnight stay in a welcoming, clean and comfortable room. A good breakfast was served with lots of choices before we set off the next day. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.
