We had a wonderful time at Stannards guest house. Lovely owners with very good recommendations for hiking and dining! Also, the option of getting dinner delivered to the Guesthouse and eat at the lovely terrace was fantastic. Nice garden with pool for relaxing time!

We spent 3 nights in a cottage (with a kitchen) and 1 night in a superior room. Both were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good. Each morning the owners spent some time to enquire about our plans and what we did the day before. We followed their excellent advice and never regretted it! We also bought some...

We spent 3 nights here. We loved the room, comfortable bed, good breakfast. Every room has its own terrace. Lovey pool & pool area and guests can use the bbq. The owners are very welcoming, providing you with information if you want to get it, but they really are not pushy. Very helpful and will plan your trips if you...

Very helpful staff and everyone was very friendly. Lovely garden and pool. Great location on the way to East Head and 10 mins by car to town. Knysna has...

We stayed at Stannards Guest Lodge for 2 nights on our road trip through the Cape. After a long drive we were received a warm greeting and were shown around the facilities to our room. Although the room was small, it was actually very comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent very little time there anyway. The lodge has...

We stayed this place for a couple of nights and we were quite impressed with the property. It had independent single floor cottages which were very well done. It had a big lawn and beautiful garden all around. We enjoyed the stay here and would recommend anyone visiting Knysna.

Nice location with very helpful hosts. Rooms very good and a bonus of a pool for guests use. Breakfasts good with a nice variety also has a small African shop selling locally produced items. The owners support an initiative in a local settlement working with the children, very admirable

The Lodge is just stunning. Beautiful building. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with a nice view of the garden. The only downside was that the room was very cold. However you can start the fireplace and you do have a bedwarmer👍.
