I was part of the same group of four as Narmak who has posted a review below. Although Narmak has posted a very thorough review and I need not add more, I feel obliged to comment in response to the review by Willy G. We were actually staying at the b&b at the same same time as Willy G and...

Dear AliRauf, Heartwarming review, thank you very much. We always try to go the extra mile to make sure our guests have a wonderful stay and it is indeed great to hear that you had such a (good) time with us at the Knysna Country House. Also a big thank you to Narmak for his review. We felt awkward about...

Synopsis (Overall + Value) Fantastic and big rooms, lovely owners, decent breakfast, decent price, car parking and some peace and quiet. Would DEFINITELY stay here again - our best B&B along the Garden Route. Location 5-10minutes drive from Knysna central. We were initially sceptical as we like to stay close to where the action is, but this peaceful location was...

We stayed 2 nights with a family of 4 persons. It was already 7pm (dark) when we arrived. The welcome from Ypie was warm. Then she presented our room. For us, this was a disaster to experience. The refrigerator was off because everything in it was frozen. The ice was melting and inside there was rust. The carpet looked dirty...

Dear Willie, Thank you for taking the effort to write a review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests, but do however need to rectify a few things. We, our staff, always clean every room every day during people’s stay (except our self-catering unit, which gets serviced twice a week) and obviously when guests leave, a full cleaning is done...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for just one night, we stumbled across it after wanting to upgrade from the backpackers we had been frequenting down the garden route. It was such a great choice, firstly arriving with no booking we were met with friendly smiles by the husband and shown to a top a lovely room with huge ensuite...

We stayed 2 nights in the family room (2 adults + 2 kids). The position is quite apart of the town close to the eastern head of Knysna. The apartment is a bit worn by use. The perception is that the cottage is a better solution instead of apartments. The garden is wide and the place is very quiet. The...

Dear Gorgio, Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor and thank you for your kind words of us being helpful. You stayed in our self catering unit and not in the family unit. You might find it a bit worn by use, but we would like to know what was worn. The beds, the carpets, the TV, the kitchen...

We did a family tour ( 2 adults and 2 boys 12 and 15 years ) through the East part of South Africa in July this year. The accomodation was pre-booked by our travel agency and we were lucky to have a 2 night stay in the Knysna Country House. A friendly staff and excellent accomodation. We had a family...

My partner and I traveled throughout South Africa earlier this month, stopping in Knysna for a few days for the Oyster Festival.

Could not have asked for a better host. Erik was so helpful with things that he didn't have to. We had trouble with our car and he made phone calls for us to get things fixed. Not everyone would do that. He went the extra mile and we so appreciated it. He is very personable and makes you feel welcome...
