Score from 89 reviews Very good
A really nice guesthouse close to the town centre and run by lovely people. The room was really nice with an awesome little terrace and the breakfast was delicious.
The Wi-Fi didn't work in my room
Pete and Mart are excellent hosts at their old-style guest house. Our room (2) had lovely views from the balcony overlooking the lagoon. The rooms are in the traditional style of the old house but clean and well equipped. Wi-fi worked well for us in the main house and breakfast area. The breakfast was served in the main house on the balcony with a buffet of fruits, cereals, yogurts and toast followed by Pete's excellent full English which certainly set us up for the three days that we stayed! They ask you to order the night before and give a rough idea of the time you'd like breakfast so they can prepare. The swimming pool area gets the last of the day's sun and isn't overlooked – so really nice. The location of Guinea Fowl Lodge, within 5 mins walk to the town, is another plus point. We felt safe walking back in the evening as well. We had one of the best meals of our holiday at The Anchorage. Overall this is an excellent value for money guest house and we would definitely go back.
Some people may find the room quite light in the morning so maybe thicker curtains would help for later lie-ins – not that it bothered us as we were up early.
The owners have been very friendly and caring during my stay and the view from the terrace is just awesome.
Lovely B&B with involved and friendly hosts. Beautiful deck, breakfast with a view! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend Guinea Fowl Lodge :)
Spacious self contained room with mirrors and sockets in all the right places. Nice garden balcony and very comfy bed. Great breakfasts from Pete and Marthe and informative chat from Pete about the area, wildlife and South Africa in general. Would thoroughly recommend this B&B when staying in Knysna.
WiFi only available in communal areas.
Hospitality of owner couple
There ready to help nature
Peter was an extremely welcoming host. In our interesting conversations with him, we learnt a lot not only about Knysna but about South Africa as a whole. Great view of the lagoon from the breakfast room. Comfortable homely room. Great breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you Peter!
A bit of a long walk down and uphill to the restaurants, but we were happy to do it at night and it felt safe.
The house itself is excellent, run to perfection by Mart. The bedroom was spacious, clean and well furnished. Breakfasts were provided and offered a lot of choice.
It's a small thing, but in the garden there is a water feature that could be heard clearly in the room, even with the doors and windows closed. Not a problem during the day but is annoying when trying to sleep. It is turned off at night but there continues to be a drip, drip, drip that can be heard all night. It didn't spoil my enjoyment of my stay, though.
Beautiful place and great service, but we were a bit disappointed that we weren't given a room with a balcony overlooking the lagoon despite these rooms being vacant at the time and for the same price.
Wonderful and delicious breakfast served on the terrace with a breathtaking view.
The Guinea Fowl has a very homely feel . The owners are experienced ,extremely helpful and the breakfast was exactly what we wanted , tasty ,wholesome and comfortable . The view across the Heads is stunning.
The neighbours noisy dog . I believe they are moving soon !! The neighbours ,that is !
Hosts very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean. Lovely breakfast on the deck. The view from the deck is stunning.
No aircon or decent fan. It was very hot that day and we had a very uncomfortable evening.
Place was nice, silent, fantastic view, very good breakfast, really nice owners.
Nothing. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Wonderful spot with amazing view over the lagoon to the Knysna Heads. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The owners are warm and friendly with loads of local information. Its just a couple of minutes drive from the waterfront, shops and restaurants. A great spot for a stop over.
The bed was too soft for my back.
The views from the balcony. Lovely comfortable bed
