Beautiful Guest house with Amazing Views
We travelled to Knysna on the recommendation of a friend although we didn't know the area or anything about accommodation options. The pictures and reviews of Candlewood Lodge were good on line so we opted to stay for 4 nights. We were not disappointed! On arrival we were greeted by both Andreas and Ines and given a welcome drink and a fantastic briefing on the local area before showing us our room. Our room was on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the Knysna lagoon and with a view of the famous 'heads' - it was amazing! the room was decorated in a very contemporary style with everything one would want or expect of a great home from home, including coffee machine, fridge, hair dryer, safe etc etc. Breakfast was fantastic! Ines calls it her 'breakfast club' and took time to seat everybody personally and introduce guests to each other which was a very nice touch and broke the ice. The food was exceptional with too many choices to do justice to in a review. Just stay there and find out. This is the only place I have ever stayed though where I was served an amuse bouche at breakfast! Ines and Andreas were fantastic hosts and very helpful, providing tips on days out and places to eat. Andreas took the time and trouble to phone the AVIS manager when we had puncture which was sorted out to our complete satisfaction (5* for AVIS here as well!) as they gave us a new car with which to complete our long journey the next day.

Great little guest house in Knysna
Without a doubt, this is a perfect place to stay in if you decide to make a stop at Knysna. The hospitality was beyond imagination, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast was exquisite! The owners thought of every little detail to make the stay a very unique experience :-) Just a small note - if you make a booking, make sure you select the relevant no. of guests. We found that the price would have been the same for 1 or 2 guests if we had selected it in advance online, however because we didn't, we payed an extra at the property...

Reside in your best friend's home...
Perfect hosts with THE sense what's needed, very personal way to approach the guest, rooms made with a great character and warm decoration, phantastic breakfast and a helpful and knowledgeable way to support each wish. We left rather as friends with a hug than as travellers. Go there - you won't regret it
