This guest house is in a beautiful colonial building. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the breakfast is great.
The hosts are kind and friendly, and gave us good tips on where to go and which restaurants to eat at.
Our room had a view of the sea and was light and air

Hello Roma & Vincent We hope you are both well! There really is nothing worse than being unwell when you are on vacation and all you want is your own bed! Thank you once again for staying with us and the positive feedback you have provided. The situation with regard to the WiFi eventually took 10 days to be rectified by the service provider of our fibre line and so we had a number more frustrated guests who were not able to make use of the service. We are finally back to business and guests are smiling once again as they can catch up with the family whilst travelling. We hope to see you back in South Africa and more particularly in Knysna and at Hide Away Guest House. Take care and all the best. Cecil & Colleen

The place has plenty of style and class. It's fairly close to t

Hi there Klaus Good to hear from you and thanks for the great feedback on your short stay with us. I know you said that you had many places elsewhere in the world to go (klaus2go) but hopefully a trip back to South Africa and more specifically the Garden Route happens to pop up in the not too distant future! So Black Friday approaches and already the price drops are happening but you can bet your bottom dollar that we will be staying far away from the stores. O don't have the patience to fight with the crowds over a few Rand savings! Your comments on FB had me chuckling..... Take care and kind regards Colleen

Hello there Thank you for taking the time to do the short review on your stay with us at Hide Away Guest House. So many of our guests just love having breakfast on the verandah as they take in the view of the Knysna Lagoon (estuary) and Heads. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in South Africa and plan to return at some time in the not too distant future. Take care and kind regards. Cecil & Colleen
