                          Enjoyed the lodge and they accommodated us even though safarinow had messed up the booking. Enjoyed the room which has lots of space - very clean and homely

                          My first impression of knysna manor reminded me of when I lived in Kimberly typical old South African house , but that was where it stopped as the guesthouse is just perfect, very friendly,and homely, my stay was excellent and I will return

                          Firstly when we arrive there the was confusion abt our booking.The penthouse was dirty with sanitary bin full.Even if they tried to clean bt if ur shoes can mistakenly go under the bed or sofas the dirt is horrible

                          Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a nice large bed. Great views over the harbour from the deck. There is a pool too. Breakfast was very good and the hosts were friendly. They went out of their way to help us with an urgent email and documents that needed to be scanned and sent. Thanks so much.
