We stayed 2 nights with Ypie & Erik and as we travelled through the whole of south Africa and stayed in several B&B's, we can surely say that this B&B was one on it's own. Nice rooms, delicious breakfast and very friendly hosts. If you want to go to Knysna and visit the heads... don't forget to head to Knysna...

We stayed for 3 nights in mid October 2012. Excellent location, very quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Ypie and Erik were very welcoming, advising on best places to eat and sights to see and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would strongly recommend staying here if you have the chance.

We stayed 2 nights. Room 6 - deluxe room with balcony. Thoroughly enjoyable. Good directions from main road and good secure parking. Quiet area. Recommended to eat at Mo's on Rex and not disappointed - about 5 mins drive. Lovely large room, excellent bed/pillows/shower/bath robes. Fridge and safe. Delightful balcony (with awning) to sit and watch the birds. Our hosts,...

Nestled in the outskirts, on the way to The Heads, we stayed in this tranquil haven, not far from the bustling town of Knysna. The rooms are spacious, clean, private, the garden and pool wonderful, safe parking, internet... all we needed and wanted. Great value for money. But what made our stay really wonderful was the care and attention of...

Stayed one night here. We were short on time unfortunately. Reasonably easy to fing using sat nav. Just outside the town itself in a forested area. Good parking behind electric gates.

I was part of the same group of four as Narmak who has posted a review below. Although Narmak has posted a very thorough review and I need not add more, I feel obliged to comment in response to the review by Willy G. We were actually staying at the b&b at the same same time as Willy G and...

Dear AliRauf, Heartwarming review, thank you very much. We always try to go the extra mile to make sure our guests have a wonderful stay and it is indeed great to hear that you had such a (good) time with us at the Knysna Country House.

Synopsis (Overall + Value) Fantastic and big rooms, lovely owners, decent breakfast, decent price, car parking and some peace and quiet. Would DEFINITELY stay here again - our best B&B along the Garden Route. Location 5-10minutes drive from Knysna central. We were initially sceptical as we like to stay close to where the action is, but this peaceful location was...

We stayed 2 nights with a family of 4 persons. It was already 7pm (dark) when we arrived. The welcome from Ypie was warm. Then she presented our room. For us, this was a disaster to experience. The refrigerator was off because everything in it was frozen. The ice was melting and inside there was rust. The carpet looked dirty...

Dear Willie, Thank you for taking the effort to write a review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests, but do however need to rectify a few things. We, our staff, always clean every room every day during people’s stay (except our self-catering unit, which gets serviced twice a week) and obviously when guests leave, a full cleaning is done...
