About Candlewood Lodge

Candlewood Lodge is a lovely guest house in Knysna which enjoys spectacular views of the famous Knysna Lagoon and through The Heads to the sea from nearly every window.

The guest house offers six rooms, each tastefully appointed in different styles. All of the rooms are air-conditioned and furnished with comfortable twin beds that can be converted into a king-size bed, or queen-size beds with percale linen. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, while one room has a bath only. The rooms are also equipped with TVs with DVD players, wall safes and tea and coffee facilities. The lovely Storm Suite is ideal for three guests or a small family, and it has a kitchenette and DStv access. The upstairs rooms have balconies with stunning panoramic views across the lagoon to The Heads, while the downstairs rooms have separate entrances and open onto a lovely deck with views of the garden.

Guests can enjoy delicious meals in the courtyard which has a fountain, relax in the garden with its large sun deck or cool down in the inviting swimming pool or the outdoor Jacuzzi. Guests can also read in the atrium with its extensive library or have a drink and relax in the bar area.

Knysna offers guests a variety of attractions and activities such as horse riding, sailing, relaxing on the beaches, hiking or walking in the Feather Bed Nature Reserve or the Hakerville Forest. Gastronomic pleasantries are abundant in town and we are located within minutes from the town centre and three golf courses.

We loved our stay, the rooms are always impeccably clean & tidy, Graham is a fantastic host & the staff are friendly too. Its a well run lodge so we'll definitely stay there again. We strongly suggest you give it a try, you won't regret it.

Candlewood Lodge is a beautiful guest house. Despite being set slightly out from the main centre of Knysna, in our opinion it was all the better for this. Our room, Sand, was spacious with a glorious view from the balcony across the lagoon and through The Heads. Graham and Joyce were terrific hosts and it was great, albeit a surprise, to hear a pair of English accents. We had a terrific time in Knysna and would highly recommend Candlewood Lodge to anyone - we will definitely be checking it out the next time we visit Knysna.
