I didn't like the pool, because there was no privacy.
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.
There is nothing to dislike about this first class guest house.
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.
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!
That we had to leave, but we will comeback for sure!
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.
Attention to detail by the owners Courtesy transport The view The overall experience
Nothing apart from stay too short
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 weather - but unfortunately this was beyond even Wayne's ability to change!
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!
The location, the view and the room were amazing and the room was top.
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 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
Visited the Alexander for the final stop on our Garden Route tour and we definitely saved the best till last! amazing location in Knysna, the house seems perched on top of The Heads with a glorious view of the ocean. the house is beautifully furnished, our room was spacious and inviting. what particularly impressed us was the attention to even the smallest detail. A restaurant had been prebooked for our first evening, all 3 recommended restaurants we ate at were superb. The Alexander even supplied a free courtesy mini bus to take us there! It was a pleasure to meet Cedric the driver. Wayne's breakfasts were simply amazing. Such a vast selection of home prepared treats; cooked meats, cheese, fish pate, home made bread, banana cake and thats before we started on the cooked breakfast menu! Wayne, Travis and Billy couldn't have been more welcoming and we felt totally pampered throughout our stay. Highly recommende!
We were really impressed with the service - everyone went way and beyond - we got dinner recommendations each every with a complimentary shuttle. Breakfast was exquisite. The interior was luxurious - had surround sound and a use of a laptop in the bedroom. Patio included choices of table and chairs as well as a relaxing sleeper. Views were incredible. One of my nicest stays ever!
brakfast is ok
the way fay not good
Attention to detail incredible, stunning guesthouse, very friendly staff. View over the sea breathtaking
The Alexander was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint! from the moment we arrive everything was a personal touch. We had booked the Pearl room for the ocean view which was fabulous and gave us the chance to spend time Whale watching from the magnificent views and we saw so much!! Wayne and his team provide excellent service from the superb breakfasts to the 1st night dinner reservation (optional but highly recommended!!) and to the complimentary taxi service into Kynsna. This is a hidden secret worth exploring!
Everything! Staff very friendly and welcoming Very comfortable accommodation, communal areas beautifully arranged, and bedrooms all with great ocean views Amazing breakfast Would definitely go back we were sorry to leave!
This is one of the best views in Knysna. Ideal get away for those looking for comfort, personal service and a place where children are not allowed.
I liked it all !
