Our upstairs rooms have air-conditioning, while our ground floor rooms all have ceiling fans.

On our doorstep you will find Pledge Nature Reserve, a 10ha local nature reserve, with indigenous vegetation, quiet and serene dams and some wonderful trails including the one all the way to the top of the nature reserve, giving you an very rewarding view over the Knysna Wayside Inn, Knysna town, the Knysna Lagoon, the Heads and the Indian Ocean on the horizon. The guided Pledge Nature Reserve Full Moon Walks have become very popular so make sure you include a ‘full moon night’ stay with us! Entrance tickets can be bought from reception.
