Everything! We loved the view, the room, breakfast and Nicole was a great host. It felt like I was staying in my own place rather than some random guesthouse. And we had a Nespresso Machine in our room.. Super love it!
Did not like the open plan of the bedroom and bathroom
Very spacious with excellent facilities in a lovely location
Just a wonderfully beautiful guesthouse with the best breakfast we had in our visit to South Africa. Nicole is a welcoming host who manages the rare knack of being friendly and accommodating without being overbearing.
Everything nothing was to much trouble it is really a lovely place to stay
This place has got every little detail just right!! If you are looking for somewhere special to stay then look no further...cant fault this place!
Could not fault this guest house in any way ! Wonderful attention to detail to make a first class overnight stay - just wish we had been able to stay longer. So chique - and made to feel so at home and relaxed by Nicole- a first class hostess ! Hopefully we will return to experience again such wonderful hospitality !
We hated leaving but I know that we will be staying at Cambalala again when we come to Knysna .
Nicole the owner treated us as if we were her personal guests, very welcoming ,she couldn't do enough to make our holiday very special.
Great rooms, pool, sitting out area. Very high class of facilities in the rooms and views across to the Heads. Proprietor very friendly and helpful and liberal with wine late afternoon.
We had a lovely stay. The rooms are superb, not forgetting the Nespresso machine which is a great morning treat before the lovely breakfast that is served....the bread is gorgeous. The guest house is meticulously clean and it is a real luxury to have your own balcony which is a few steps away from a relaxing infinity pool with an amazing view... Very much recommended..
Our room number 4 had no door to the bathroom. So far ok, but in some situations a separate bathroom is of advantage. The main road can be heard clearly and is noisy. In the garden is a pond with extremely load frogs; I could not sleep so well.
Truely perfectly designed into every little detail. Very big rooms. Very good breakfast.
The rooms were stunning as was the infinity pool and garden. Nicole and her staff did all they could to make our stay here perfect.
Nothing to complain about.
The facilities at the guest house, together with the level of service that Nicole provided were top class. The room was very spacious and light. The breakfasts were delicious. Nicole provided us with tips for restaurants which were two of the best meals we tasted on our holiday.
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
Unfortunately the weather was too bad to enjoy the beautiful garden.
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.
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.
Hated that we had to leave!!!!
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!
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.
The only regret is eventually having to go home, we had a wonderful time. Thank you Nicole and Georgio.
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.
