About Knysna Manor House Guesthouse

Knysna Manor House is a 3-Star, AA Highly Recommended Knysna guesthouse offering B&B accommodation on the Garden Route. This unique Bed and Breakfast combines the charm of times gone by with modern amenities.

Built in 1896, the guesthouse was the original home of the mayor of Knysna and was converted into a B&B in the 1980’s.

Knysna Manor House is housed in a charming Victorian mansion located in the centre of town. The guesthouse overlooks the stunning Knysna Lagoon and is within a 2 to 5 minute walk of local shops, banks, craft markets, restaurants and the Knysna Waterfront.

The guesthouse consists of 11 en-suite rooms that have all been lovingly furnished and equipped with modern amenities including tea trays, a hairdryer, at reception, heaters, fans, additional blankets, tea and coffee making facilities and filtered water while guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is served from 07:00 to 09:00 on the decks in summer.

The deck offers guests stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon and Knysna Heads, and is a quiet place to end the day after finishing one of the many day trips around Knysna. These trips include the hauntingly beautiful Tsitsikamma National Park, Wilderness, Oudtshoorn, George and Plettenberg Bay.

                      Located one street next to Main Road, you can access the center by walk and drive to Waterfront or Thesen Island very easily. Ample breakfast for the price, clean and spacious rooms, all respecting your privacy.

                      Enjoyed the lodge and they accommodated us even though safarinow had messed up the booking. Enjoyed the room which has lots of space - very clean and homely
