The reception. On arrival, we were greeted very with genuine friendliness (I think the young lady is called Henlia) and basically given the run of the castle as we were the only guests. We loved the use of the wifi and the coffee on tap. We also loved being able to stay after check-out time to be able to watch the Springboks play on TV.
Absolutely nothing comes to mind.
Large room with lovely views from the picture windows. Comfortable bed and pillows. Good breakfast promptly served. Restaurant nearby with varied menu.
Location , quietness , friendly and very helpful staff
Cleanness could improve
Fantastic location and views
The view and location.
You can see that the building used to be fantastic however it has dated and hasn't been refurbished at all as it was on the market as well.
Linen smelled a little damp, probably because of winter.
The room was huge with great views. Breakfast was lovely.
Lea and the two ladies in the dining room were excellent. Lea was very helpful with supplying all the information we required. It was altogether a lovely place! We are sure that after the upgrading, it will even be more beautiful. Thank you to the three ladies - we also enjoyed the breakfast you made! We were sad to leave such a lovely place and lovely people! Alna & Hennie van der Merwe
Really nothing to complain about!
The wonderful view, Friendly staff, closeness to The Heads, We could look up at night and see the stars overhead from our bed
Staff very helpful. Beautiful views. Spacious accommodation. Would definitely recommend.
Some of the items in the room needed a cleaning.
Old World charm
Staff absent and untrained
Great views, size and comfort of rooms, helpfulness of staff.
Looking a little weathered around the edges, is up for sale though. Still very minor issue overall
The view was beautiful. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room and beds were comfortable and clean.
The carpets were old and black in places due to age. The tablecloths were creased (not ironed). This gave the impression that the place was not being kept in 5 star quality, perhaps because it is on the market.
The View is stunning
All the stairs
Spacious rooms and bathroom. Beautiful and exceptional value for money. Good service.
We asked for a room with a good sea view but one was not available. Try book early.
Carpets need a bit of cleaning- otherwise everything positive!
Ecellent views of the Knysna Heads.
The location is indeed great and breakfast (though somewhat limited) is really tasty. The owner is friendly and helpful.
Augusta had everything to be a great luxury guest house but it's seen better days and the standard has slipped badly. The fact that it is for sale shouldn't really be an excuse and the owner should instead downgrade the 'luxury' to 'budget' of its description. Very poor quality of linen and towels by any standards - and this is supposed to be a luxury guest house! At first inspection, bedsheets looked like they hadn't been changed from previous guests (though they most likely had). The bed also had an unplesant odour, the type that sticks to your clothes after you left the hotel. I think it's supposed to be this trend to aromatherapy in hotel rooms but it only made the badly washed bedsheets smell like they hadn't been changed! Bedsheet and towels also heavily stained. Cleaning standards poor - dirty bath and shower area. In the breakfast area the tablecloth is stained, too big for the tables - staff kept stepping on them - and nothing had been ironed.
Great location, good value,
The hotel is in a good position overlooking the inlet, with only a minute's walk to the sea.
When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon I was able to get into the building as the gate was unlocked. When I went to the reception area there was no one to be found, apart from two children (guests I think) who were making themselves at home. I had to go back to the gate to press the buzzer before an adult appeared. It transpired that she was covering for the manager who was not there for the weekend. She showed us our room and where to park the car and offered to advise on restaurants and make a reservation for us, but then she disappeared, never to be seen again. There was no phone in the room or anywhere else that I could see, so we were unable to contact her that way. When we eventually got an internet connection we carried out a search for local restaurants and selected one that way.
Room was large and well furnished; appreciated the coffee machine available all the time. Breakfast was very good, and ample
The entire facility is up about twenty very steep steps; many of the rooms are up more stairs. Absolutely not for handicapped or people with knee problems.
Location at the heads is perfect, nice vue from our room
really old, furniture and floor, really bad old smell, spots on towels, bed sheets and napkin, water temperature changing all the time, so not possible to wash hair without being burned, so disappointing due to high quotation on booking.com
Location was great , breakfast was fantastic. Staff was very nice. Beautiful View!
The place was clean but the towels where stained and the shower did not work properly (poor water flow) , bathroom extractor was also making a screeching noise.
Deck with swimming pool. Dining area.
Stairs everywhere. Our room had a view of the back of a concrete building although other areas had a good view of the Knysna Heads. Cleanliness was dubious. Towels appeared to be very old and were not ironed. Furnishings ancient and dingy. Generally the place seems run down. No staff on duty after 6pm.
Great location at the Heads. Nice beach for a swim just below. Beautiful view. Very spacious.
Accommodation a bit dated.
