A magical hideaway
Wooden walkways link our hotel guest house in Knysna and meander through our unique gardens – a verdant blend of the Orient, the Temperate Zones and our own Knysna forests walks. Birdlife is prolific and patience will usually be rewarded with some great sightings, including the stunning Knysna Loerie.
For all summer visitors to our Knysna Guest House Accommodation we offer sumptuous breakfasts served on our expansive dining deck and in winter in our breakfast room with a roaring log fire. A cold buffet serving of homemade goodies is followed by hot dishes to order, either a full English breakfast or delicious sweet or savoury pancakes. Evening meals are available by prior arrangement – a popular night time choice being a traditional braai or barbecue.
