About Stannards Guest Lodge

Stannards Guest Lodge recently reassessed and confirmed 4-Star Guest House, is located in a peaceful and leafy area on the Eastern outskirts in Knysna, 2 minutes away from the Lagoon and world-class golf courses, and 5 minutes from the famous Heads, town center and vibrant waterfront.

The four Standard and the two Superior bedrooms are tastefully decorated to a high standard, they have their own private entrance and patio overlooking the landscaped garden. Room facilities include DStv, fan, heater, tea tray and Wi-Fi. The two luxury self-catering garden cottages include spacious lounge with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, flat screen LCD TV, I-pod docking station and safe.

Tasty and generous buffet-breakfasts can be enjoyed indoors or on the deck overlooking the garden and the large pool, prolific with bird life. “Afro-chic” lounge has a fireplace for chilly winter days and a little “boutique” for something different. Day trips to explore the Garden Route can be made so easily from this ideal base. And your hosts, Patrick and Helene-Marie, will always be available to share their local knowledge of the area and arrange bookings for activities and restaurants.

Patrick and Helen are suburb hosts at this lovely Lodge. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.  Everything is perfectly maintained and the lush garden adds to the relaxing environment.  We enjoyed the pool, French bowls and private bar. The self catering garden cottage we stayed in, was the best spot on the premises - private, but not far from the fun. We thought that the breakfast menu could include more warm foods like bacon and freshly grilled eggs. Anneen, Petrus, Emilie and Sané.

Stannards Guest Lodge is absolutely wonderful. We had the pleasure to stay with Mike for a week. Mike is a marvellous host and the place is spotless. The rooms are lovely, garden, pool and terrace invite one to rest and relax. We will certainly recommend it to all our friends and acquaintances and when back in Knysna we will definitely only settle for Stannards.
