Wonderful ladies running the manor. Although we only stayed a night, we absolutely loved the accommodation, clean, eveything we needed and we were well accommodated with our large group. I would definitely recommend this property to others. Hafeeza Sader

Nice cozy B&B with a wonderfull view from the terrace. We had their flat with a bunk bed, a doublebed and a sofabed. Nice with a fridge in the heat, and If you travel selfcatering the kitchen is ok. Not much equipment though, budt clean.

Thank you for your comments. I take note your lack of equipment in the flat, and would appreciate feedback as to what we can add to improve the facilities.

The manor is well situated if you are looking to stay in the center of Knysna as it is closed to all the amenities. If you need some silence far from the busy city, then the location is not ideal.

Firstly, I must apologise about the wi-fi, we have had numerous people in to try and get the range extender sorted, but due to thick walls of the guesthouse, sometimes it does not get through. It is however available in public areas (I find it better to connect in reception, then go to where you are). We are glad that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Knysna Manor House is a 3 star, AA Highly Recommended Knysna guesthouse offering B&B accommodation on the Garden Route. It is a unique Bed and Breakfast that combines the charm of times gone by with modern amenities. Built in 1896, the guest house was the original home of the mayor of Knysna and was converted into a B&B in the 1980's. Knysna Manor House guesthouse is housed in a charming Victorian mansion located in the centre of town, overlooking the stunning Knysna Lagoon and is within a 2-5 minute walk of local shops, banks, craft markets, restaurants and the Knysna Waterfront. This Knysna accommodation consists of 13 en-suite rooms that have all been lovingly furnished and equipped with modern amenities including tea trays, a hairdryer (availale at reception), heaters, fans, additional blankets, tea/coffee making facilities. The majority of these rooms have a mini fridge. We have now opened up a self catering flat, which can accommodate two adults and two children. Guests can enjoy "Free Wi-Fi" Internet access in public areas, and in some rooms. We are working with the service provider to hopefully have the entire guesthouse wi-fi enabled. Breakfast is served from 7 - 9 either in the breakfast room, or on the deck overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The deck offers guests stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon and Knysna Heads, and is a quiet place to end the day after finishing one of the many day trips around Knysna. These include the hauntingly beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, George and Plettenberg Bay. We are a 3 Star, AA Highly Recommended accommodation provider. ... more   less
