Helpful hosts and comfortable rooms
Gill Dobson, South Africa - 06 January 2017
Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a nice large bed. Great views over the harbour from the deck. There is a pool too. Breakfast was very good and the hosts were friendly. They went out of their way to help us with an urgent email and documents that needed to be scanned and sent. Thanks so much.

Lovely guest house, just a shame there were a few dogs close by that barked consistently all night
Phil Cooper, South Africa - 23 July 2015
If you want a very comfortable, central BnB it will be hard to beat this.

Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms comfortable, and equipped with all you may need.

Ideal place for a peaceful, relaxing stay. We will return!

Cosy stay
Ravi Naidoo, South Africa - 22 December 2014
Stayed for 2 nights at the Knysna Manor Guesthouse with my family. Cosy and comfortable stay. Good location, away from the hustle and bustle, but within walking distance to the waterfront and shops. Great views from the deck of the lagoon. Breakfast was also great. Our host was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this Guesthouse.

Top quality, clean, friendly. Noise from Shell Service station can be an annoyance if in a veranda room (will be taking this up with Shell, as the noise is unnecessary.

Very comfortable room, beautiful view and informative host. Lovely breakfast, but TV's need attention, very limited channels, rooms slightly dirty.

Knysna 300 MTB race
Amanda van Hell, South Africa - 28 February 2013
We stayed at the Knysna Manor House during the Knysna 300 MTB race. I have to give credit to Lizzie for going out of her way to make us feel welcome and getting up extra early to make sure that the guys had a cooked breakfast before setting off for their daily grueling task. Thanks Lizzie ... you are one in a million. If we do the race again next year, we will for sure not look any further for accommodation.
Great accommodation in paradise

Knysna Manor House
Rosemary Elliott, South Africa - 01 April 2010
We had a lovely stay in Knysna, our hosts were very accommodating. The rooms were large and comfortable, and there was ample space for quite a bit of luggage. Breakfasts were traditional but well cooked and when the weather permitted it was very pleasant to be served on the sun deck. Anthony was knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. The only problem we had was the stay was too short, we would certainly recommend KMH and would stay there again if we have the opportunity.
An excellent stay
Michael Lee, United Kingdom - 05 March 2010
Knysna Manor House is an excellent place to stay whilst driving the 'Garden Route'. The owners are first class hosts with good old fashioned values, they serve an excellent breakfast and can't do enough to help. The rooms are good sized, well kept and nicely presented. An excellent stay - despite the weather!! Thankyou.

Jodi Goodison, South Africa - 13 October 2008
Our stay was wonderful. Knysna Manor is a very comfortable homley and welcoming Bed & Breakfast. Our Room was beautifully decorated with that touch of home in it! We will definitely be back if we ever up the Garden route again!
Bernie Connolly, South Africa - 09 October 2008
We enjoyed our stay, we were offered a choice of large rooms and accommodation was very high standard. One drawback is the amount of stairs from car park. A lot of stairs to negotiate with suitcases which have to be carried through dining room. Otherwise very satisfactory
Stefan Orstadius, Sweden - 05 August 2008

My stay - Very relaxing & enjoyable. The hosts were friendly, & could give useful advice of interesting places to visit in the garden route. The area is secure and very peaceful. I would recommend to anyone that they visits this part of our country; and that they stay in this Homely establishment.
