It was a nice stay. The BnB is a little bit remote but with a great view. Many restaurants offer a free shuttle service so the remote location doesn't really matter. Service was great and the room was standard.

Very spacious rooms. Can only be reached really by car, as it is on top of the hill. The way out of the parking lot is very steep, but since there is not much traffic, it's okay. Breakfast was good and the staff was helpful (they allowed me to use their phone to make a Reservation at Addo)

The House is really cute and nice! You have everything you need. Unfotunetly it's a little far from city center if you want to walk. An absolute no-go: wifi doesn't work although it should be. If you order breakfast it's ok, but we have really better ines on our way on the garden route. It's just cute they bring it...

I have stayed at Overmeer on several occasions and have found the accommodation to be first class. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms very comfortable and clean with little transfer of noise between rooms.

Second time staying at this wonderfully inviting guest house. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms on the 2nd floor, are very spacious, clean, and have floor to ceiling windows/slider that open to a private patio with beautiful views overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. Will be coming back! Highly recommended!

Room clean and big overlooking the lake of Knysna. Breakfast nice but everything was extremely impersonal. No warmth, no real welcome. Felt like a hotel. The building itself looks cold when you arrive

Enjoyed our stay. Omelets was very very good. Thanks for putting the flowers and chocolates on my daughter's bed as requested. Only our pillows was not very comfortable - to flat and bed a bit hard. Further awesome stay. Thanks
