Mandy and I stopped at Point Lodge for 6 nights in June. We stayed in the Oyster Suite. The setting of Point Lodge is wonderful with a stunning view being on the edge of the Knysna lagoon. If you like birds then you will see many in the garden of Point Lodge. I've attached a picture of a wonderful hoopoe... More

We recently spent four nights here. Two couples and a child. The owner is very friendly and helpful. First of all the location was great for us. Close to the lagoon edge for short walks and just far enough away from town to be quiet yet close enough to be convenient. I loved the cooked breakfasts - simple yet delicious,... More

The Point Lodge is a great B&B. I've stayed for two nights with my family and we were able to feel as at home. The owner and his staff are very pleasent and helpful. The breakfast is good, but do not have great variety. The rooms are spacious, but not very new, so in general they have carpet floor. Although,... More

Nothing fancy, just a good old bed and breakfast. I loved the location, just far enough out of the central town area for me. We had two nights here, very friendly staff, when we arrived we were given a map of the area with some ideas of what to do, we ended up talking a lovely walk along the beach... More

We spent two nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. The friendly Innkeeper, Ryck I believe (forgive me if it's misspelled or I'm remembering incorrectly), was extremely helpful and attentive; especially with local directions and suggestions about where to visit. There is a self-serve honor bar that is a constant temptation and the breakfast was quite good. The... More

Lovely hotel with wonderful views across the lagoon. V small swimming pool - too cold to use, even after hot day. Good base to explore the area as close to main road but very peaceful and quiet as well. Excellent host whose staff all very friendly and keen to help.

If you are ever in Knysna...do stay here!! Beautiful setting right on the edge of the lagoon which gives off a cooling breeze whilst sunbathing especially if you are like myself who cannot stand too much sun. The garden is lovely...with a pond where four large birds came to drink several times a day. The decor of the rooms very... More
