The Knysna Manor Guest House is located very centrally but very quit as well. The rooms was furnished in old style and very generous in size. Excellent breakfast. The host was very friendly and helpful.

Very nice place. The rooms were clean, the breakfast good. The owners were very concerned about our safety when we decided to walk to the restaurant and as we were two women she got the manager of the restaurant to walk us back when we had finished our meal.

I took a young couple from Singapore (who were on a country-wide tour with us) to Knysna where we stayed at Knysna Manor house. We found the venue to be very clean and comfortable. The owners are very pleasant, hospitable and keen to offer assistance with advice about local attractions Pete Lees Cruiselite Tours and Safaris

Hi Alexandra, We are also sorry that your stay was only for one night. We are centrally located, and it is great to be able to walk into town to the restaurants.

Really enjoyed my stay here - it's located right behind a charming little village where there are a few shops/restaurants as well as an indoor/outdoor mall. The breakfast is pretty basic but it's served in a nice atmosphere. I didn't stay inside the main house so I can't really comment on the rooms as I stayed in the budget room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Knysna Manor House is a 3 star, AA Highly Recommended Knysna guesthouse offering B&B accommodation on the Garden Route. It is a unique Bed and Breakfast that combines the charm of times gone by with modern amenities. Built in 1896, the guest house was the original home of the mayor of Knysna and was converted into a B&B in the 1980's. Knysna Manor House guesthouse is housed in a charming Victorian mansion located in the centre of town, overlooking the stunning Knysna Lagoon and is within a 2-5 minute walk of local shops, banks, craft markets, restaurants and the Knysna Waterfront. This Knysna accommodation consists of 13 en-suite rooms that have all been lovingly furnished and equipped with modern amenities including tea trays, a hairdryer (availale at reception), heaters, fans, additional blankets, tea/coffee making facilities. The majority of these rooms have a mini fridge. We have now opened up a self catering flat, which can accommodate two adults and two children. Guests can enjoy "Free Wi-Fi" Internet access in public areas, and in some rooms. We are working with the service provider to hopefully have the entire guesthouse wi-fi enabled. Breakfast is served from 7 - 9 either in the breakfast room, or on the deck overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The deck offers guests stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon and Knysna Heads, and is a quiet place to end the day after finishing one of the many day trips around Knysna. These include the hauntingly beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, George and Plettenberg Bay. We are a 3 Star, AA Highly Recommended accommodation provider. ... more   less
