Overall very good conditions. The room was very comfortable and clean. Only thing is there was no mirror in the room or close enough to a plug point for ladies who need to do their hair. The owners were very friendly. Definitely will be back the next time I am in Knysna as it is conveniently situated a walk away... More

So sorry about the lack of mirror! It had recently fallen off the wall and although I had bought a replacement, we hadn't yet gotten around to putting it back up. Most of the time we are on-hand here and if you had mentioned it to us, the task would've been moved to priority position! Hope Villa is in a... More

We love ths guest house. Its our favourite in SA. Tessaand Freidal are lovely people who make everyone so welcome. Their sense of humour, chat, comfort of their lovely old home not to mention the superb breakfasts make thus an unmissable stop in Knysna.

fantastic - really beautiful position and well appointed. Awesome to have full use of the lounge area and to have the warm fire place to sit in front of. Possible need to look into doors and windows that don't seal properly as this would have been a problem if the weather had been cooler

As this was a late decision to head Knysna way, I was pleasantly surprised to find superb accommodation at a reasonable price. Space was in abundance, bathroom was a pleasure to energise in after a hard ride! Not forgetting the fireplace while watching Euro 2016!! A very pleasant stay indeed!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hope Villa, in the beautiful Garden Route town of Knysna, is situated at The Heads. Stunning beaches, restaurants, golf courses and many leisure and adventure activities on your doorstep make this your ideal holiday accommodation choice! Your hosts will welcome you to this comfortable and stylish accommodation with their warm and personal touch! We speak English, Afrikaans and German. Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the diningroom or on the verandah, while the many nearby restaurants provide a mouth-watering choice for lunch and dinner.Hope Villa is an historic house. Construction of the house commenced in 1899 and was completed in 1901. The home is built of stone taken from the cliffs behind the house and features yellowwood floors, windows, oregan pine ceilings and doorframes. The house has since been tastefully restored. Hope Villa is a mere stroll away from the lagoon, restaurants and the scenic Eastern Heads viewpoints and walk, and is just a few kilometres from the centre of town. A few metres down the road takes you to a small lagoon beach from where you can walk out onto the lagoon sands at low tide or have a refreshing swim when the tide comes in. ... more   less
