About Knysna Yellowwood Lodge

Yellowwood Lodge is an exclusive accommodation establishment in Knysna, in the heart of South Africa’s world-famous Garden Route. Step back in 1900, when Yellowwood Lodge was built, Knysna was a quaint, sleepy little village on the shores of the splendid Knysna Lagoon. Time stood still. Things were different then, everything had value and sentiment.

Yellowwood Lodge epitomizes gracious living, for those who appreciate the finer things in life, in fairy tale-like surroundings that romantic dreams are made of. This is British Colonial Africa at its best, without exaggeration. The supreme standard of comfort, hospitality and impeccable service ensures a truly unforgettable stay to even the weariest of world travellers. Yellowwood Lodge is strictly a non-smoking establishment ensuring an ambience of quietness, freshness and tranquility.

Conveniently situated, Yellowwood Lodge is barely five minutes’ walk from Knysna’s famous Waterfront and all the quaint shops, shopping centres, markets and banks from the centre of town, while being within one hour’s drive of almost all the famous Garden Route attractions.

Delicious English as well as a full buffet breakfast is served in an atmosphere of original, indigenous Stinkwood and Yellowwood charm in the grand dining room with its breathtaking chandeliers.

Relax around the sparkling pool and soak up the sun amidst lush, landscaped gardens. Explore the abundant bird life all around the estate bordering indigenous forest and off-street parking.

                                      I loved my spacious bedroom. I appreciated the careful little requests for care for the earth and our environment. Not dictatorial, just caring. Ernest was charm itself!

                                      Had a great stay here at Yellowwood Lodge. Lovely rooms with super view of the lagoon. The rooms were comfortable but were beginning to be a bit dated. We had the best breakfasts of all our stay in S Africa here in Knysna. Ernest the owner is very friendly and considerate. The pool was in need of a good clean and we did not feel we could use it. I guess this is not always the case, but we were there just after the busy Christmas and Jan rush and it was evident there were things to be done in the pool area.

                                      A well run organization in a lovely setting with a friendly and attentive owner and staff. The bedroom (upstairs in the front of the main house) was pleasant and presented us with a lovely view of the harbour and the Heads area in the distant.The breakfast was fantastic and thoroughly recommended.
