We stayed at Canal Guest House and we were picked up at the jetty. The tour was only an hour. We would have loved for it to have been a bit longer. But loved every second. Our guide was very well versed on the history...More

Although the location and service were good, lack of security and comfort. Breakfast no variety. Bathroom setup outdated and crack in the sink. With some improvement ... refurbishment and renovation, the guesthouse could be a top destination.

I wish I could have stayed longer. Great for two nights, would be perfect for longer. Rooms are clean and simple, the view is great (of the canals) and the service is impeccable. Can't recommend Brisan enough.

The St Francis Bay canals are probably my favourite place on earth and a stay here was a must on our SA visit. We stayed in the Whale Room (the best suite in the B&B) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Janet and Ant were amazing and...More

About
Description
Delightful Bed & Breakfast on the Canals in St Francis Bay with a small private beach and jetty. The Swan of Brisan, a pontoon barge boat waiting to carry you along the canal system while the skipper tells the More story of how the canals came about, the huge canal fires and many more. Sip a cool glass of wine with some snacks while drifting along at sunset. St Francis is a great sporting community with 2 impressive golf courses, squash and tennis courts, bowls, cycle and walking trails. Brisan staff is waiting to organize the "get-a-way" you desire. The 6 comfortable en-suite bedrooms with access to braai/barbecue facilities, Lapa-bar on the canals, and guest lounge areas definitely make this a home away from home. Come and relax with us. Suitable for romantic getaways or quality family time​ holidays. Less
