Great stay and lovely hosts: We spend a lot of time on the road, but seldom do we see such lovely hosts! Every detail was perfect, it started raining in the night, and we found umbrellas at our doorstep to walk to breakfast! Breakfast is served in a beautiful room, and is delicious. Definitely coming back😄 (Trip Advisor)
There is no better! This was our 2nd stopover at De Oude Pastorie. We were greeted as old friends, slept the comfort and luxury, had a superb breakfast and will repeat our support as often as we need to on our annual trips to Knysna. It it not cheap - but worth the additional cost (Trip Advisor)
