Owner in person is extraordinary, helpful with a lot of useful tips, teh berakfast was a joy, amazing bread, a great start in the day. Garden, pool and view: all perfect.
Everything... can't fault the place. Had everything and more... amazing host who went out of her way to assist us.... many many thanks
The perfect guest house, nicely furnished and decorated with a beautiful view over the lagoon, a wonderful garden, excellent breakfast and a safe parking area. Nicole made us feel very welcome and provided us with a lot of recommendations for the Knysna area as well as information about life in South Africa.
Unfortunately the weather was too bad to enjoy the beautiful garden.
Stylish and spacious bedrooms/common areas, great location with a superb view over Knysna and overall an absolutely fantastic atmosphere (in particular because of the Swiss couple operating the guesthouse).
Everything Breakfast Garden Bed Room
Great breakfast, excellent service! Rooms are beautifully designed and the view is breathtaking!! Thank you for the great hosting, Yaara & Gil
The rooms, building and garden are all very stylish, clean and provide a bright living space. service offered is also great.
Nicole was a wonderful hostess. We felt as though we were in our own homes. The view of Knysna was beyond compare! The breakfast made by Giorgio was delicious--outstanding omelets. Our rooms were beautifully decorated, as was all of Cambalala! The infinity pool was beautiful, and the gardens were trimmed to perfection!
Hated that we had to leave!!!!
Beautiful, perfectly maintained guest house in an unbelievable setting. Wonderful staff and delicious breakfast. No complaints, only praises.
Everything. Stunning.THE BEST PLACE EVER
Everything about this guest house was excellent and beautifully decorated.
Nicole and Georgio were unbelievable hosts who were willing to accommodate our every need. The experience was that they really made us feel at home. No question, we will stay at Cambalala again if we visit Knysna again !!!!! We really loved our stay.
The only regret is eventually having to go home, we had a wonderful time. Thank you Nicole and Georgio.
This was one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever been to. The rooms were gorgeous, with great attention paid to design details. The setting is absolutely stunning. Nicole is knowledgeable and so helpful. Many little extras are included in the room price, making it feel even more special.
Everything, Nicole was an exceptional hoast with a beautiful Guest house and great facility's
Not a critasisam but as we had guest house ourselves it would be a good idea if there were an ice bucket in the room to go with the complementary bar. And dry towels after the guests have gone out to dinner as they are still wet in the morning or that the towel rail could be switch on.
Calm oasis to return too after day out sightseeing. Beautiful room, beautiful house, great hosts, perfect stay. Fantastic view over the lagoon.
Always fully booked so book early.
We liked and enjoyed everything. The best place we ever stayed! Thanks to Nicole, who makes it happen.
Amazing view, very friendly owners and excellent breakfast. Good recommendations for lunch and diner. Spacious room with complementary mini bar and wine at the pool- awesome. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse!
Very nice and modern hotel with friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended to everyone who likes style. NIce place to elax, great views.
