My fiance and I had a fantastic stay at the Hide-Away Guest House during our recent visit to Knysna. The hosts, Cecil and Colleen, were very kind and always happy to help with good advice on what to do or where to eat as they are very knowledgeable of the area. Our room was very nice and comfortable, and the view of the Knysna lagoon was spectacular and very enjoyable over afternoon tea or breakfast, which was served al fresco on the veranda. The breakfast was delicious, with abundant selection. In short, we would go back as soon as we can and can highly recommend the Hide-Away Guest House to anyone.
If I had to point out something we didn't like, it would be the wifi--it was spotty and we kept being kicked off the network. Not a big deal if you are on vacation, though, and it worked just fine for email. Also, keep in mind that Hide-Away is not right in the center of town (this is a plus), so getting to the Waterfront is about a 10-15 minute walk, which you may or may not feel comfortable doing late at night. We walked most of the time during the day and evening and felt perfectly safe, but we did take a cab after dinner when it was getting late.
cecil and coleen excellent host,coleen has good knowledge of all the best beaches and where to eat,make you feel really welcome.
road noise,and rooms a little sparse.
The friendly attitude of the owners gives the place a homely feeling.
The view from our room was great - we booked a standard room without a lagoon view, but were upgraded...thanks! The hosts Colleen and Cecil were extremely welcoming, gave us info on what to see and where to eat and were great hosts. Cecil makes a superb breakfast which was by far the best I've had in ages.
The couple running the guesthouse make you feel welcom when you entre the terras. "would you like a cup of tea?". Breakfast on the terras, nice rooms, good advise, nice restaurans in the erea. Beautiful beach. Our stay was really nice!
The warm welcome, and the attention to detail which ensured that we had everything we could need. Exquisite views and ideally located close to restaurants and shops. Definitely to be repeated
The Guest House was well appointed and very pleasant (and we were upgraded to a lagoon view room as an added bonus) but what made our stay so enjoyable was the local knowledge from our hosts. Their insight into the local area and the various optuions available to us was invaluable and led to us have ing a very enjoyable few adys in Knysa. Very highly reccommended.
Beautiful location and close to Kynsna Centre. Good recommendations for local restaurants.
Friendly owner and nice location near town
Cecil and Colleen were excellent hosts, they made us feel most welcome, the guest house was in excellent order and well maintained, the location was very good being central and with Lagoon views.
