Quite a quick wrap up at the end of our stay as it was for one night only.
Breakfast was unbelievable for a small guest house, as were the views on the balcony whilst eating it. Staff very friendly too. In UK terms amazing value for money overall.
Great location, very nice interior, lovely hosts, amazing breakfast - we will come again one day!
Decor, food, views, free shuttle, privacy,location, safe
If you are considering staying here, do it! One of the best places we've ever stayed in
Everything!! Its all about details. Perfecte service. Breakfast was great. Royal suite was superb! Great to sit in a jakuzzi and watch over the IndianOcean. The staff was great!
Beautiful location, perfect accommodation, attentive, thoughtful staff. Excellent breakfast with variety to suite every taste
Lack of hot water at night
Lovely decor and attention to detail. Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff Beautifull view where it's not obscured by the neighbour's roof
Everything - fantastic hosts, amazing breakfast, lovely rooms. One of the best hotels we've stayed in - they really go above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay possible.
Nothing to say here.
Lovely staff. Great breakfast and complementary driver into town for evening dinner. Oh, and the view!
I didn't like the pool, because there was no privacy.
There is nothing to dislike about this first class guest house.
Absolutely everything. This is a truly outstanding guest house and there are no superlatives good enough to describe it adequately. Stunning decor, beautiful views, deeply caring staff, large, comfortable room with own sun terrace, well stocked honesty bar, free shuttle to Knysna restaurants, and a fantastic breakfast array. Has to be the best guest house way beyond Knysna.
Hands down the best b@b we have ever stayed in. Wayne should be justifiably proud of this exquisite guesthouse. Staff, food and accommodation are 5 star. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!
Fantasic staff and a lovely house. We are are looking forward to our next stay in Alexanders "Paradise".
Attention to detail and friendliness of staff
Travis & Wayne (the owner) fantastic guys, nothing too much trouble, fabulous breakfast, free transfers to town for dinner, comfortable, spacious, clean room - we were spoilt rotten
The lovely view and the best breakfast of my southafrica trip.
That we had to leave, but we will comeback for sure!
Everything. We have travelled alot but we have never found anything compared to the Alexander. We defently recommend staying here, it is a pice of paradise. Rooms, service, breakfast, enviroment, view, the staff and owner gets 10+ from us!
The staff really cared and it was like it said on the front door, You come as a guest and leave as a friend. They got your name directly and was so helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay over at The Alexander! The house you are staying in got one of a kind view over the Knysna bay and can't say anything bad about the place. Thanks all for a lovely two days in Knysna!
private shuttle to dinner locations beautiful view from terrace on top of the heads rich breakfast well provided, nicely decorated and furnished room, great bathroom
Very friendly people. Owner and staff will treat you like a king. This is definitely the place to stay in Knysna.
Nothing apart from stay too short
Attention to detail by the owners Courtesy transport The view The overall experience
The weather - but unfortunately this was beyond even Wayne's ability to change!
The attention to detail is amazing and nothing is too much trouble for Wayne and Travis. The breakfast was really tasty with an excellent choice.
The location was great and we watched the whales feeding off the coast late afternoon. The shuttle to and from the restaurant in the evening was really appreciated and contributed to the relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts, great food and charming staff, also plush quality rooms contributed to make this B&B a special, relaxing, enjoyable place to be. Go for 3 days minimum and really spoil yourself!
We found that the staff was dominantly present and a bit overdone. In our opinion this did not set the ambiance for the better. In all other BB in SA we have experienced that warm atmosphere.
The location, the view and the room were amazing and the room was top.
The ultimate Guest House - simply superb! Wayne, Travis & Willie - a winning Team. Sharing a glass of wine (or two) and lots of humor with Wayne on the terrace ..... a Hoot! Ambiance, great breakfasts, superb view, attention-to-detail, interesting guests
