The view from the room, room spacious
Staff rude! When i got to my room, there was no water, no electricity, the modem never worked. Lodge is for sale, and it shows!!! I hope they sell it soon to enthusiastic people!!
Very nice manager and location. Great breakfast
Welcoming staff who did everything to make our stay memorable and comfortable. Professionally run guesthouse with many sensual comforts which were well presented. Great position with beautiful views. Excellent value for money.
Could only stay one night!!
The view from the room was amazing. Overall our stay was very enjoyable.
The guest house needs a bit of work
View, breakfast, staff
THE VIEW OVER THE HEADS IS FANTASTIC AND I LIKED THE WAY WE WERE TREATED
I DID NOT LIKE THE STAIRS LEADING TO OUR ROOMS. THEY WERE VERY SLIPPERY AND DANGEROUS WHEN WET OR MOIST.
They were busy with alterations to the house in front and started casting concrete from 6h30. They had a notice in the room to apologise though and obviously it is out of their control.
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.
