Rooms are classically furnished, spacious with high ceilings and the bathrooms are stocked with the best toiletries. There is ample space both indoors and outdoors for you to relax. Both lounges, the Brandy and the TV lounge, have fireplaces for cooler evenings. There are regular brandy and wine tasting sessions in the Brandy Lounge in the evening.

Hannah Black, Tribes

"This is a beautiful country house set in lovely gardens just off N2, 5 minutes from Knysna. I really liked it here. The staff are fantastic! It feels like a proper country house. The rooms have a contemporary modern feel to them, but with subtle hints to remind guests that they are in South Africa."

Beverley Costello
"The Best! Staff and atmosphere was superb."
Mrs Susan Bryant
"Again a very friendly atmospheric place to stay with a good location. We had a free wine tasting session with Shanon, who then gave us a personal tasting the following night to demonstrate the importance of glass shape affecting the taste...who knew the same wine would taste different in a different shaped wine glass!! Food was superb and we ate there two nights out of the three. "
