    not recommend!
    If I need to look for a place to stay I will choose another place. The picture are elusion. No value for your money The place are old. The room smells old There is no a private balcony as the picture. No privacy at all!!!The forget to worth the the most busy road N2 it’s in a front of the room and it’s very crowded from the cars. It’s difficult to sleep. No hot weather . It’s not worth the money.!!!
    Tamar, il3 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    I thought that the property was more secluded rather than being a short distance from the main road. The room was very pleasant as was our hostess. The area was very nice and easy walking distance from the tourist areas. As a general comment on the garden route I would not recommend it and am surprised that it is so highly reviewed. I was very disappointed.

    Peace and tranquility in a paradise garden setting
    A lovely stay in a comfortable, quiet guesthouse owned and run by a wonderfully hospitable couple, Cecil and Colleen. Thank you, I felt as if I was staying with family. A few minutes walk away from the centre of Knysna, the Hide Away Guest House sits in beautifully tended gardens far enough from the road with good views of the lagoon. My room was comfortable, spacious and perfect for my stopover

    Ronald, zaOther trip
    Good 6.0
    Disappointing, not four stars.
    Having stayed in six other 4 star guest houses on the same trip, the Hide Away fell far short of the standard of the other places. We rated the other guest houses deservedly highly. We would definitely return to those but not the Hide Away.

    Very good 8.0
    great location, great advice
    Hotel is in a great location, just on the edge of town. It has a nice pool, secure parking, lovely breakfast, large rooms, a strong flow in the shower, and -- most importantly -- Colleen is a font of information. Unfortunately, our rooms smelled a bit mildewy. I'm not a fussy person but it bothered my eyes. My kids, in the next room, did not complain. Also bed was too firm for my tastes, but that is better than too soft in my opinion.

    Highlight of Garden Route trip.
    Our stay was a highlight of our trip along the Garden Route from Port Elizabeth to Capetown. We would certainly stay there again on future trips. Our highest recommendation for a first class B & B stay.
