"We spent a wonderful 3 nights at this unique and magnificent house. The Elephant Room was probably one of the best, if not the best, that we have ever stayed in. The decor, ambience, welcome and the way that Sara and her staff looked after us was absolutely first class. We hope we have the opportunity to return and would recommend anyone visiting Knysna to stay there."

Jan Parmenter from United Kingdom
