Cecil & Colleen Harding, both South African, are the owners of Hide-Away Guest House and will be your hosts for the duration of your stay with them. Both Cecil & Colleen have been in the airline and tourism industry for many years having worked for both domestic and international airlines in South Africa and Dubai and the knowledge they have gained over the years has assisted them in providing you with a great place to stay whilst in Knysna. They have travelled around South Africa extensively and are also able to provide you with great recommendations as you plan your onward trips from Knysna.

On arrival you will be surprised by a hot or cold towel service (weather dependant) and offered what we are sure will be a welcome cup of tea or coffee. Sit and relax for a few minutes and get to know your hosts. At this time you will be introduced to all that Knysna and the surrounding area has to offer – you will not need to visit the local Tourist office for any further information! If you are needing any reservations to be made for either activities or restaurants these will be dealt with quickly and efficiently. Then it’s off to your room to unpack and relax. Complimentary WIFI is available in all rooms and common areas. Amenities such as hairdryer, gowns, complimentary tea/coffee tray, DSTV, mini bar make your stay that much more comfortable. And for those very energetic guests, a small gym with treadmill, cycle machine and weight machine is available.

The Bed and Breakfast is located approx. 1.5 kms from the centre of town and the waterfront. A walk to the waterfront before dinner will offer you the possibility of stretching your legs after a long journey. There is an excellent taxi service in town so if you don’t fancy the walk back after a leisurely dinner, the restaurants are more than happy to arrange for the taxi to collect you.

We suggest that you plan to stay a minimum of 2 nights - but preferably longer - you will not regret it! With numerous restaurants and coffee shops – see our Restaurant Page, you will be spoilt for choice and this after enjoying an excellent breakfast every morning prepared by Cecil. Guests are required to complete a menu the night before in order that you are served the freshest plate of food possible. You will note that our menu caters for most requirements.

For the enthusiastic golfer, Hide-Away Guest House is located within easy driving distance of the three courses, i.e. Simola, Knysna Golf Course and Pezula. Knysna makes the ideal base to play the other courses in Plettenberg Bay, George and even Mossel Bay.

We are also a gay friendly establishment but regrettably do not accept children under the age of 12 and no pets are permitted.
