Reviewed 18 June 2017

Great service, very uncomplicated, family.
Free bar. Have the nightcap at the home-bar.
Spacious, nicely furnished rooms. Some have a wonderful view of the sea.
Very warm welcome with a surprising afternoon-tea.

The staff were awesome. The view was spectacular...
I wish I got to stay longer than the 2 nights...
I haven't had such a great experience at a hotel/guest house in a LONG time.
Will definitely try to go back again.

Stunning location with the most amazing views of the Knysna lagoon and heads. Knockout lush gardens, pool.The sunbird suite accommodations were perfect, large, private and did I mention the views? And a private balcony. The staff were impeccably present but unobtrusive. Free bar was a lovely touch. There was a large family group there at the same time as us and Lisle went out of her way to make sure the kids didn't bother us. They didn't btw. Dinner at Pemburys was a highlight.

Great staff, beautiful spacious rooms, scrumptious breakfasts with amazing views over the lagoon! Peaceful and tranquil location too. A really lovely place to spend two nights in Knysna, highly recommended.
