Honeymoon week at villa afrikana
The stay was exceptional in the sense that the hosts really care about your day. Everything was so clean and the breakfast was simply world class. We also loved the view of knysna everyday. Seriously the best view in town. We had our honeymoon there and we were treated with absolute TLC all the way.

Wow, fantastic view and superlative service
Lovely hotel with fantastic personalised service. Would suggest more hot meal options for breakfast. Also no lift in the hotel which could be an issue for some. However the staff was very helpful with the luggage. Would suggest an intercom or phone in the room to contact the reception.
