Uitsig.

Dit is 'n uitsig om voor wakker te word elke oggend. Was 'n klein probleem toe ons daar aan kom, maar was vinnig reg gestel. Vriedelike mense en wonderlike diens.

Wonderful view!

Beautiful setting, lovely room, excellent breakfast. Unfortunately the Wi-Fi in the room did not work properly, on and off all the time. There should also be a receptionist at the guesthouse from 14:00 each day, not a good idea that guests must supply an exact time of arrival.

Onbeskryflik mooi.

Headlands het voorwaar 'n besonderse ligging oor die Heads. Kamers is baie mooi, netjies en skoon en die uitsigte is ongelooflik. Lekker gasvry mense wat dit bestuur en die aanbevelings vir eetplekke in die omgewing was in die kol.

Headlands truly has a unique location over the Heads. Rooms are very nice, neat and clean and the views are incredible. Nice hospitable people who run it and the recommendations for places to eat in the area were spot on.

Friendly staff, but Seahorse room lacks cosiness. Upstairs rooms lovely.

I would recommend Headlands House but not Seahorse room. It was cold and clinical. A fridge in the room would be nice. Debbie was a great host.

We are so glad you enjoyed our hospitality and the cleanliness of Headlands House. We are surprised that you did not rate our location. The view from the Seahorse room is spectacular. Waves crashing through the Heads. We do have a fridge in the communal area.
The colours of the Sea Horse room are cool .. and guests normally like that. We do have warm blankets in the cupboard.. and would have gladly provided an additional heater, had we known that the panel heater did not suffice.

Baie duur, maar sonder lugversorging en met 'n verouderde badkamer.

Kamer was redelik klein, met geen lugversorging. Die badkamer is baie verouderd en donker en die TV-kabinet se deure was los. Daar was geen yskassie vir melk of koue water in die kamer nie. Van al die 4-ster verblyf waar ons gebly het was die die duurste met die minste te bied. Die uitsig was fantasties, maar die 35°C en geen lugversorging het dit baie onaangenaam gemaak.

Very expensive, but without air conditioning and with an outdated bathroom.

Room was quite small, with no air conditioning. The bathroom is very dated and dark and the TV cabinet doors were loose. There was no small fridge for milk or cold water in the room. Of all the 4-star accommodation where we stayed, it was the most expensive with the least to offer. The view was fantastic, but the 35°C and no air conditioning made it very unpleasant.

Apologies for replying in English - I understand a little Afrikaans but am not so good at writing or speaking in Afrikaans
We do not normally have requests for air-conditioning but we have had an exceptionally hot summer - should these exceptionally high temperatures persist we will certainly consider air conditioners - otherwise with normal summer temperatures prevailing the sea breeze up where we are does the trick .
We do not advertise fridges in our rooms except for out Pansy Shell Room - our guests are welcome to help themselves to cold water from the communal lounge area as well as milk .
We are sorry you did not feel like you received value for money

Baie mooi uitsig!

Dit was 'n besonderse lekker tyd in Headlands! Baie mooi uitsig, heerlike kos, al die geriewe. Dit is egter 'n duur prys om te betaal per persoon en goedkoper verblyf, wat op dieselfde standaard is, was ook naby geleë. Werklik 'n mooi uitsig oor die see.

Out of this world!

Die uitsigte van hierdie plek bo-op 'The Heads' is ongelooflik mooi; jy kan die see aan die een kant en die Knysna Lagoon aan die ander kant, sien. Die kamers is skoon, modern en baie romanties. Ons gashere het ons ontbyt (ook heerlike warm, tuisgemaakte muffins!) in die bed kom bedien en alle informasie van Knysna en die omgewing met ons voor die kaggel gedeel. Alles is baie meer persoonlik hier en jy voel sommer tuis as jy kom inboek - niks is te veel moeite vir hierdie wonderlike gastehuis nie! Baie dankie Talia en Gary vir 'n onvergeetlike mooi tyd saam met julle.
