Lovely large room with terrace and a good breakfast. Charming, friendly and helpful hosts, Kate and Nathalie. It's close to the village centre albeit with a bit of a climb if you're walking. Our hosts booked all our restaurants for us and there is a reliable and cheap taxi service for the evenings. Knysna has nearby great beaches and a...

Kate & Natalie certainly are great hosts. Our accommodation was perfect, with views across the lagoon, bed comfortable and was cleaned daily. Breakfasts were prepared to order and made a great start to the day. The greatest help we received was from their advice and their booking of our evening restaurant visits. they seem to know absolutely every restaurant in...

Double Dutch was probably our best stop whilst travelling along the Garden Route. Kate and Nathalie are friendly hosts and make you feel more as if you are entering their home rather than a guest house. With lovely little touches, from a complimentary drink upon arrival to Nespresso facilities in the room, lovely breakfast, everything makes you feel completely relaxed....

From the cheerey welcome from Kate to the farewell gift when we left, this place is tops. Great room and all the amenities you could want, excellent breakfast and lovely pool and views. Kate and Natalie are naturals at this and nothing was too much; they organised every evening meal, that where fantastic, and the taxis. I would recommend this...

We booked a room on Double Dutch on short notice . We were nicely greeted and informed about the facilities that seemed to be great. Unfortunately we got a room facing the back with a roof-fan that was noisy,. The bathroom was excellent, the hostess welcoming and breakfast nutritious. On the improve, I suggest that WiFi is a low hanging...

We stayed here for two nights after being recommended by my daughter who stayed there last September. She was in turn recommended by a South African friend who knew the area.
