The restaurant and fully licenced pub, displaying items from yester-year, overlooks the pool with panoramic views of the town, lagoon and famous Knysna Heads.

Stayed 3 nights in this lovely antique filled in. We had a room overlooking the shore and town. Nan, the manager was perfect. Always available and responsive to your every need.beautiful pool area(although too cold to swim). Breakfast was tasty and good. The staff was very accommodating. Just a perfect place to explore the garden route.

“amazing gem of a place”

the room we were given had balconies on both sides and had an amazing view of the sea. the bar/pool area also has beautiful views. cant find enough words to praise the place-it has been done up with so much attention to detail- the place is a treasure trove of restored/functioning antiques and has an old world charm combined with modern conveniences. we stayed here for 2 nights but wish it were longer.. there was a resident dog-very friendly and playful-made us feel even more at home!
