    A very chilled place - just very serene place to go. It can be a little expensive for the type of food offered in several restaurants - price doesn't really match portion of menu. The people are friendly, there's a few activities to do if you're adventurous. It's a great place to stop-over for a couple of nights and then continue with your journey. The Waterfront is very lovely. I suggest you there. The Mall is also great for shopping - don't get lost though because there's about 4 mall/square areas.

    One town that’s full of adventure around every corner from the heads to the old drift to Brenton on sea to buffalo bay to jubilee creek to the forest to lands end. Just too many wonderful experiences to be had in a vibrant and friendly town! Honestly, the best place.

    If you are planning a trip along the garden route then Knysna is a must visit spot. The views across the lagoon and the Knysna Heads are amazing and so many options for accommodation from camping by the lagoon to 5* hotels. It is also a good base to explore the Eastern end on the garden route right up to Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth). There is also a number of fantastic mountain passes to drive up to the Karoo, but make sure you have a good vehicle and a good head for heights. Knysna is fantastic and well worth a visit.

    As a place to stay, Knysna is rather small, and moreover less secure after dark than other places. Knysna and its islands/view points can e.g. easily be visited from Plettenberg where there is much more choice in terms of restaurants. 1 day is more than enough for Knysna.

    The views are magnificent.

    The views are magnificent. The surrounding areas are also very worthy of visits. Plettenburg Bay, Tsitsikamma, Sedgefield and Wilderness are excellent. Something great to do every day! Knysna itself is a little run down and touristy, after all it straddles a motorway (N2), but there are places that are tucked away which are charming.....one goes there however for the views!

    Fantastic location close to town with wonderful views right across Knysna to the Heads. The host has excellent attention to detail and provided us with all the info we could need, incl local restaurant specials and suggestions. The property is extremely well set up for load shedding and the wood-fired hot tub is kept warm throughout the day by the staff. The main house is massive and well furnished, with all the comforts one could require, and it's quiet at night in spite of being so close to town.

    Probably the most beautiful, breathtaking view we've ever had in any accommodation. We sat on the deck until late night looking out over the Knysna lagoon and heads. The host is wonderful! We had a great breakfast and enjoyed some lovely conversation with our host. We felt at home and utterly spoiled! Our room was very large, by far larger than most we usually stay in, and comfortable. We can highly recommend Friendz and will be back for sure for a longer stay.

    Prospect Cottage is a nice appartment with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The balcony has a beautiful look over Knysna, the lagoon and the Heads. We have enjoyed our stay as a family, because the cottage is spacious and very quiet at the end of a dead end street. Only the noise of the main road was audible, sitting on the balcony. The stay was too short to visit all the remarkeble places of Knysna and the Garden Route, but we certainly want to come back.

    What we loved most about this place was the comfort of the rooms, the balcony overlooking the water and the perfectly manicured lawns. The staff were extremely warm and homely and the KidClub exceeded by expectations. The Resort was less than 10 min drive from the stunning Knysna Heads and also 10 min from Knysna centre where you can book boat rides on the Quays and Waterfront as well as Thesen Island.

    Our stay at Waterfront Lodge B&B in Knysna was exceptional. Marion and Gavin were wonderful hosts, offering a warm welcome. The room was beautifully decorated with stunning lagoon views. Breakfast was delicious, and the location is perfect for exploring Knysna. 2min car drive away Their hospitality made our stay truly memorable. Highly recommended for a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

    Spacious house, fully equiped kitchen, confortable beds. The view from the deck is stunning! Lots of birds (spotted some Knysna Loeries) flying around the garden. A short drive to the north to the Knysna forest hikes, and to the south to Knysna lagoon. Great communication with Caron, the owner. The made sure we had everything we needed (f.e. during a loadshedding we didn't know about).

    This home perched high above the Kysna lagoon was extraordinary. Our rom was immense, the bed so comfortable and the views exceptional. The lovely infinity pool and gardens were luxurious and inspiring. We enjoyed walking own to Thessen Island, walking on the beach and would have loved to do the forest hikes if we had been there longer. Breakfast was lovely.

    A luxurious and peaceful place for relaxation in 15 minutes drive from Knysna Waterfront. Rooms are really spacious, you also have a balcony or a private garden with a private hot tub. Yes, your own hot tub in your garden!:) Since it is the golf club’s hotel, you can walk around beautiful golf courses (if you’re not a player)

    Very comfortable hotel right on the lagoon, huge and well-maintained pool (without the usually annoying cleaning pipes which any other pool in SA seems to have). Super friendly and helpful staff. Best breakfast of our entire trip (3 weeks). Very beautiful and comfortable room, although we booked the cheapest category.

    Great little apartment in Knysna centre. Good location to walk to all shops and waterfront. Clean and cosy apartment. Kim was a good host and provided clear instructions on how to access car park and apartment. I left a shirt in the wardrobe, but Kim arranged to get it back to me (thank you again)
