My wife and I stayed at Pumula Lodge two nights at the beginning of February 2016. Our spacious room had beautiful terrace with nice view on beautiful garden with lots of birds. Small lodge with family atmosphere. Location is OK, just short drive to all attractions around Knysna. Also the price was OK.

Friendly reception, beautifully appointed, easy to find, good breakfast in wonderful surroundings. An overall good experience. I would like to suggest that you install a railing into the pool for those of us "oldies" who still love to swim but need a little help.
