The room was very comfortable. The view was very nice. The location was very quiet. The owner Karen provided an excellent breakfast. She also gave me tips on places in Knysna that were worth visiting.

Spend a special weekend with my mom in Knysna. We highly recommend Lavender Hill Guest House. Accommodation was excellent and Karen's breakfasts were "yummy". The bedroom and shower was spotless. The gardens were also very pleasant and well kept. Thanks and hope to visit again soon.
