Over the last few years I have stayed at Narnia several times a year and I never cease to be delighted at its beauty, tranquility and comfort. Stella is a gracious and attentive host without being intrusive. The accomodation is superb and the surroundings are simply stunning. In winter it is warm and cozy, in summer cool and open, and...

Few places in South Africa that we visited showed more starkly the difference between the haves and have-nots. The hill above the eastern approach to Knysna is dominated by teetering, tumbledown shanties that eventually give way to Knysna itself: a manicured, middle-class, suburban wet dream. We were well supplied, and there was nothing in the town that we thought would...

My mother and I recently took a trip to Knysna to get away from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. We were recommended Narnia Guest House by family friends who said it was an absolutely stunning guest house. They were completely right. Everything about this accommodation was absolute bliss.

Your review on Tripadvisor has saddened me especially as your stay was actually given to you free of charge in lieu of a prize donated by me to a cycling event in Knysna. Your booking was to self-cater but you asked for breakfast and so we made a plan for you. Perhaps I should have explained to you the kind...

The one night stay has been very nice as well as the breakfast included in the price. Enough space for even more than two person and a wonderful view on the bay. It is good value for money although rather in the upper price segment.

A special place, with a view over the Knysna lagune. Very beautiful garden, nice people and a lot of privacy. A little paradise on the mountain :). We hope to come back one time.

Quirky, rambling guesthouse with stunning views over the surrounding countryside (it’s on a hillside overlooking the town, so you need transport to get to/from the centre of Kynsna). There’s a variety of rooms – one of us had a large suite overlooking the garden with the Knysna Heads in the distance, and we had the Pool House (which has a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Narnia Guest House provides affordable bed and breakfast accommodation and self-catering accommodation in Knysna. Situated on top of a hill, we surrounded by majestic views of the Knysna Heads (famous entrance to the sea), Knysna lagoon, the Knysna river and the Garden Route's Outeniqua mountains, this stone and timber guest house nestles in an acre of award winning gardens, visited by 180 species of bird and small wildlife such as bush buck, lynx, monkeys and bushpig.You would be hard pressed to find a better location to stay. Just 2 kms from the town of Knysna with its fabulous shops and restaurants, beaches within 10 kms, forest walks closeby, Plettenberg Bay 30 kms away and both the Tsitsikamma National Park and Oudtshoorn easy day trips.The Guest House is eclectic and intriguing with a mix of building materials, most of which were found on site. The salt water pool is a delight in summer and boasts a view of the mountains very difficult to beat. Geyser water is solar heated, the owners collect glass and tin to recycle, the gardens are watered from dams and are fed with worm farmed compost and an organic veggie garden supplies whoever needs what is being picked on the day.This is a place looked after, with love, by staff who have worked here for over 15 years and looked after guests for 12. Bed and Breakfast guests are treated to a fun drum call by Nomic. Mavis and Natalie make sure your room is spotless and your flowers in the bathroom fresh. ... more   less
