Good location to relax after long work day.

Be prepared for stairs, lots of stairs. Perfect room, perfect view. Just a pity our request to not service the room was not honoured. Otherwise, good.

Knysna Manor House 's response

Thank you for taking the time to review us through Lekkeslaap. I am sorry that your request for your room not to be serviced was not honoured, and I will follow this up.
I agree that there are quite a few stairs, with the guesthouse being set on 3 different levels but have never had a complaint about this before.
Thank you for you great rating - glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Knysna Manor House 's response

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am not sure what you mean but that we advertise differently to what we actually have. All photographs displayed across all websites are the same, We only advertise wi fi in public areas, as due to the thickness of the walls, the signal strength varies. Water pressure has been extremely low all around Knysna and The Garden Route due to the horrendous drought that we are experiencing. (please see my Facebook post from Knysna Municipality)

DSTV is throughout the guesthouse, and we do state that we have a limited DSTV bouquet. I am not sure which stairs you are talking about, but this has never been a complaint before. Parking, although tight at this time of year is secure. We have not had a complaint about this.

Did you address your problems with my managers, as I am sure they would have been able to explain all of the above to you.
I see that you were given a large family room, despite booking a double room.

If you would like to discuss your stay with us further, please send me a message through our Facebook page, or reply directly to the guesthouse, and my managers will forward it to me.

Graag lewer ek kommentaar oor ons verblyf by Knysna Manor House.

Die kamer was 'n bietjie knap. Hulle het 'n piepklein yskas op 'n ronde tafeltjie met net een poot in 'n hoek van die vertrek ingeprop waar daar klaar 'n stoottrollie staan met die ketel en koffie. As die yskas oopgemaak word dan wil die ronde tafeltjie omval of die yskas gly van die ronde blad af wat te klein is. Ek glo vir die prys wat betaal word kan hulle darem seker iets beter prakseer. Verder is daar 'n motorhawe net onder Manor House. Ek weet nie of dit na-ure 'n sjebeen is nie, maar die lawaai het tot die vroeë oggendure geduur. Een oggend om 04:00 het die polisie met luidsprekers losgetrek. Dis nie eers te praat van die padlawaai in die hoofstraat 'n blok van die huis af nie. Ek voel ons het duisende rande spandeer om daar te kom en dit alles deur te maak.

I would like to comment on our stay at Knysna Manor House.

The room was a bit cramped. They have plugged a tiny fridge on a round table with only one leg in a corner of the room where there is already a push trolley with the kettle and coffee. If the fridge is opened, the round table wants to fall over or the fridge slides off the round top which is too small. I believe that for the price that is paid, they can at least practice something better. Furthermore, there is a car port just below Manor House. I don't know if it's an after-hours issue, but the noise lasted until the early hours of the morning. One morning at 04:00 the police came out with loudspeakers. Not to mention the road noise on the main street a block from the house. I feel like we spent thousands of rand to get there and get through it all.

Knysna Manor House 's response

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our guesthouse. I would like to know which room you were in, as all round tables have now been replaced, and fridges (which are not compulsory) are in nearly all rooms. These come as an added extra.

With regards to the noise at night, I have been working with the local police, and this is being dealt with on an ongoing basis.

I would be glad if you could let me know which room you stayed in, so that I can rectify any problems that you had.

Awesome

It was fantastic! The only issue I had was regarding the listed "serviced daily", as the bedding was not changed on the 2 days I was there - so if you can just change it daily, it would be nice. Definitely will be coming back.

Knysna Manor House 's response

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Travelground now offers us the opportunity to respond.

Rooms are serviced daily, but if guests are staying for two nights, the linen is not changed (as is the standard practice in all accommodation establishments). With South Africa being a country that experiences water shortages, we change the linen every three days if a guest stays that long, and again on departure.

We now have in each room, a form which guests state whether they want to save water, and keep their linen, or have their linen changed.

Thank you once again for staying with us, and we look forward to your return.
