Knysna Classic

Colleen and Cecil were always available, friendly and helpful with tips about restaurants and site-seeing. The house was built in 1940 and is opposite the Knysna lagoon, just next to the N2 Highway on the way into/out of town. The house was classily decorated but the room had air conditioning, electric blankets, espresso machine, outdoor sitting area on the veranda and views of the heads. Breakfast was nice with plunger coffee, cheeses, eggs, muesli, fruit and juice. A lovely couple interested in current events and filling us in on their part of the world.

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.!!!
