The bedroom and bathroom facilities were excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The views were delightful and the ambience of the Manor was wonderful. Will definitely stay again if in Knysna.
We liked everything about Falcons View Manor. Our room was delightful and the breakfast was delicious. Can't say enough about the wonderful staff and owners.
The location of the property was very good, central and within walking distance of the town centre. Although the property was old it was beautifully kept and full of character and had a wonderful garden with a small pool which was perfectly adequate. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, lead by Sue and Danel who were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very good, would also recommend having the evening meal as well. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay,
Staff was top class - knowledgeable and helpful. Amenities in rooms excellent, food and service outstanding.
Friendly helpful staff. Good food. Even washed our car for us. High on a hill over looking Knysna Bay, good walk into town.
Had to use your car to go to town
A beautiful estate on a hill overlooking Knysna. breathtaking. Excellent service, Danel was a great host and gave us lots of information what to do on a rainy day ( and sunny ones) . Superb attention to detail . Amazing room (we stayed in room 10)
We wanted a bar fridge in our room.
everything, location, staff, food facilities excellent. Will return next year.
The rooms were well appointed, the staff very helpful and the food in their restaurant very good. The view from the verandah was stunning, especially at night, with all of Knysna and the Island illuminated. A great place for a sundowner!
The hotel staff were amazing, friendly and so helpful. The location is beautiful and I wish we had more time to spend there. The food was magnificent and beautifully presented.
Staff were all friendly and more than willing to help. The verandah provides an immediate refuge from travelling and the welcome drink sat there setss the tone. Excellent breakfasts on the patio and delicious dinners.
The setting is beautiful, the house, the garden, the view ..... The staff is very friendly, helpful and capable. Finally the food (breakfast and dinner) excellent!
It is a challenging walk back from the village to the Lodge .....
feeling at home, the staff was very helpfull and the food was superb ! Beautiful garden and pool, the view from the terrace was very nice !
Everything about Falcon View Manor was excellent.
Not applicable. The place is fantastic.
very friendly owners and staff excellent kitchen
Staff were excellent Location and food first class Clean with large bathroom
Nothing not to like
Dinner on Sunday evening was excellent and great value for money.
We had the Garden Suite. If one wants to pamper oneself, this is the one to go for. Great modern stylish decor. Very private. The overall atmosphere of this Victorian house is fantastic. It has been refurbished recently with a great attention to detail, wonderful blend of traditional and modern styles. The food was very good, the wine list has some really interesting finds. The staff was very friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Overall a very personal feel to everything. The location and the gardens make it a great place to relax.
Nothing substantial comes to mind. If one wants to be picky: It would have been nice to know upon checking in that on one day during our stay there would be no dinner service. We would have planned our day trips around it.
The location and Staff
A bit old fashioned
I liked everything about this place. One of my favourites. A beautiful, gracious manor house with elegant and tasteful furnishings. The lovely verandah with tables and cushioned chairs placed to take full advantage of the excellent view. Breakfast on the terrace looking out over the grounds was a delight. The staff, the food and the general comfort of this guest house was excellent. I cannot praise it enough. We even climbed the very steep hill to reach the guest house (once was enough) but the high location was worth it for the fantastic view it afforded.
Everything, the view, the food, the beautiful old building, the attention to every detail.
The hotel is located in the Knysna hills very close to the city center and has so much style in it. The house, terrace an tea garden are amazing and well worth visiting. We felt comfortable, safe and welcome at all times! Breakfast selection was the best troughout our trip around South Africa!
Room Friendly staff Food Beautiful location and views Magnificent old historic building Attention to detail: cottage industry insect repellent - smelled beautiful, provision of scissors - should be a must in a hotel room! Thank you!
Everything, Jackie a STAR and no complaints
Towels a bit thin
Location is just perfect. Hardly 2 mins drive from main street and max 4-5 mins drive to thesan island and waterfront (main area of knysna).. Spread of breakfast is fairly inline with 5 star B&B.. This property is kind of heritage property (125 years old) but its very well maintained. It also has proper parking space. Rooms are clean and quite big in size. Worth for every penny spent.
WiFi speed was a bit disappointing.
