The manor house offers a great view over the lagoon and is in a short walking distance to the center, shops and restauranta at the waterfront. The rooms might not be all new but the beds were very confortable. Brenda and her husband are great hosts: friendly and very helpful.

Hi Sandra, Thank you for taking the time to review our wonderful old guesthouse. As you stated the rooms are not new, but with the historical side of the building, it is not possible to have new rooms.

Really enjoyed my stay here - it's located right behind a charming little village where there are a few shops/restaurants as well as an indoor/outdoor mall. The breakfast is pretty basic but it's served in a nice atmosphere. I didn't stay inside the main house so I can't really comment on the rooms as I stayed in the budget room...

Knysna Manor House has a old school look to it. We had a decent size room with very comfortable beds. They also serve a delicious full farm breakfast. We just stayed over night so we didn't make use of any of the other facilities.

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
