Individual serving us at breakfast was very unfriendly. She did not explain to us how it works and made us feel uncomfortable when we asked questions.
everything , it was just as you wish it to be . Felt like home , staff are more than friendly and such an amazing view .
nothing , everything was perfect .
Lovely GH right location , clean and welcoming , a lot of thought had gone into the planning of the rooms extension lead spare adaptor, scissors,big comfortable bed just fantastic
Stated there was wifi in the rooms but could only get it near reception but I understand it's being sorted.
Always enjoy staying here, staff always attentive but unobtrusive.
Staff from Eskom staying there, smoking in the rooms, partying between the rooms. Pity they didn't even go to work!
Room set up was good
The staff had bad attitude were not welcoming and polite. They did not greet or make us feel comfortable the one lady was arrogant and rude towards us.
Big rooms. Friendly staff
nice views very good breakfast clean rooms
driveway very steep with a car no plates/cutlery in family unit kitchen
Breakfast was excellent.
It was friendly, both modern and cosy. I loved the turndown service, good prices on bar items, privacy and luxury level of the bathrooms, spacious balcony. My favourite was the great breakfast selection.
Good location, great friendly staff, beautiful view from room, spa bath, every time we came back to our room, it had been turned out by the staff. Even at 8pm at night, Roelien booked a window table at the Dry Dock Restaurant for us, when we returned, our room was again cleaned and bed made up!! Brilliant. Breakfast was superb. We will definitely be back.
I want to start by commending this guest house for accommodating us with a short notice cancellation of a room. The other half of our travel party was unable to make the trip to Knysna due to a serious medical injury. Overmeer accepted our explanation and graciously requested no cancellation fees. We stayed in a Classic Room - which is the budget of the two options (the other being Luxury Rooms). The room was enormous and very comfortable with a gigantic bed, lots of cupboard space, a TV, full honesty bar, kitchen area with zink, and ensuite shower. The room also offered a small patio with outside table and chairs, although no view. Service was professional, friendly and attentive. Breakfast was lovely and served in the dining room that has a gorgeous view of the Knysna Lagoon. The guest house is centrally located and well maintained.
Our biggest gripe with the room was that the toilet flushing system isn't correctly installed and we had to lift the toilet lid each time in order to properly flush. Also - the budget rooms are part of what seems to be a residential home, and our room had an interleading door into this home/garage - we could hear the residents in the house clearly, and that took away a bit from our feeling of privacy and "escape".
View, breakfast, comfortable room, cleanliness
TV Could be upgraded
Access to the place when driving is a bit tricky
Second stay at this facility and all expectations realised. Smart, clean and efficient, I'd have no hesitation in recommending.
I loved the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, the size and comfort of the room and bathroom, the cleanliness and the lovely view.
friendly and lovely big rooms
room was above laundryroom and noise of machine was loud.
Apartment was lovely Friendly reception Cleanliness Breakfast was good.
glass sliding door with no marker on ( one broken nose later) all the other apartments had, so I assume that one came off at some time. Very steep driveway. No concern from reception about the nose even though directions to the hospital was sought the night before. Cord for the kettle was too short and there was no plug for it. I had to unplug the fridge.
the king size bed, the coffee station, the spacious room
i think it needs a newer tv but you do not come to Knysna to stay in your room to watch tv
The reception staff was on point. We were satisfied with the treatment and service in general.
The weather but that was not of your doing ☺. The heater didn't warm satisfactorily.
Food yum yum great, hospitality cool, LOCATION cool.
Shower water pressure and no elec blankies.
The staff made you feel at home from the start, the room was spacious with its own mini bar and the breakfast was excellent. I will definitely recommend Overmeer Guest House to everyone.
Rooms where great
Dining room and bar is a bit...eh
Beautiful view, very accommodating owner, nice breakfast. Great value for money.
Our room was brilliant - the honeymoon suite with open access bathroom - BRILLIANT!!! We will definitely return even though there are a few negatives.
Access driveway is VERY steep. Use of the other access 20m down the road is recommended. The hallway (upper & lower) acoustics are VERY poor. Dining and Reception staff need more training on customer service.
