You’ll love it!
You must stay here!! The views are amazing and the breakfasts are delicious. We received such a warm welcome from Werner. He made our stay so special. He even gave us a free upgrade and always gave us good advice about what to see and do in the area. If you like homemade fudge and shortbread then this is the place for you. Can’t recommend it highly enough!

Lovely hotel with an amazing view of the Knysna Lagoon, and a short drive from the extraordinary beach at Buffels Bay. Friendly owner and staff, and an excellent breakfast.
