We stayed in Interlaken Guest House from 31-12-2016 until 2-01-2017. Elsie and Kevin really make you feel at home, from the first contact by phone. We appreciate sincerely the warm hospitality we felt, the uncomplicated frankness, the nice rooms and beds the lake view and everything else. On New Year's Eve, Elsie and Kevin prepared a typical South African 'braai'...

A modern property with a beautiful view over the lake. The shuttle bus into town for the restaurant was ideal. The hosts were helpful and the breakfast was lovely. The room had everything you could need including comfortable seating on the terrace.

There is a reason this place rates so highly in every tour guide. Beautifully clean and decorated rooms with a well stocked mini bar and wine. However, waking up to the sunrise over the lagoons was breathtaking. The fresh and homemade breakfact in the morning was incredible (probably the best I had in South Africa) and then Jacuzzi over looking...

We share the opinion of the majority of the reviews which we had read about this guesthouse: nice, clean, friendly, great view. On the negative side the closeby road is to mention which you notice and sometimes hear but forget when you overlook the phantastic lake to the back side of the rooms.

We were driving the garden route and were fortunate to stop at interlaken. The views were breathtaking from our room, overlooking a beautiful lake and part of the serpentine river. The room was clean, the hosts were very friendly plus assisted us with local knowledge. Kevin's breakfast was scrummy. We would definitely stay again.

Excellent location with a view to die for. Warm reception made you feel like returning friends even though it's your first visit. Full breakfast was much more than expected and sitting on a deck overlooking that wonderful view. Restaurants in town are pretty good and offer a taxi pick up from the Interlaken.

If you have the large room you are in wonderland: looking at the lake and the meandering river. You have beautiful views and a balcony where you could stay forever. The small room is less comfortable because of the noise of lorries on the N2, otherwise it is good. The hosts Elsie and Kevin are great, super friendly and helpful;...

Hi Eleonore, Many thanks for your constructive review! You are right, the Fish eagle suite ( large one) is like having your own little apartment and you could happily have stayed with us for much longer!! It was lovely to see your sense of adventure and doing all sorts of things in the area.... especially the swim that you had...
