Indulge in old world splendour

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angeliou

Every guest welcomed to our boutique hotel is a VIP and we strive to ensure their stay will be unforgettable.

Our boutique hotel and conference centre is an exclusive, owner-run establishment, uniquely situated at the top of ‘town-hill’ with a 180 degree view of the town of Knysna, the lagoon and the famous Knysna Heads.

A 5-minute brisk walk will get you to the town center where you will find the Knysna Mall as well as all major banks. Strolling further down Grey Street, quaint shops and coffee stops will keep you company until you reach the Waterfront where a range of activities will add to your Garden Route experience. Make our hotel your Garden Route base from where you will build life-time memories. We are looking forward to welcoming you.

A little history

The original property was called Fair Acres and was built in the early 1900’s. The Thesen Family (after whom the Thesen Island Estate is named) was next-door neighbours. During that period, the property belonged to an elegant English lady by the name of Tilbrook.

It changed hands after it was occupied by a Captain Weller who was Port Captain of the Durban harbour. Another English lady by the name of Diana Stanier lived there in about the 1940’s.

A couple named Wilkinson, were the next proud owners and they later sold the property to Allan Perrins, who lived there with his sister, Susan Backhouse.

A note on Allan Perrins may be of interest: he came from the very wealthy English Perrins family (Lee and Perrins Worcester sauce) and as a captain in the Welsh Guards had been Equerry to Edward, the Prince of Wales. (Subsequently the king Edward V111) approximately in the 1930’s.

Accommodation

With 17 uniquely decorated rooms, guests will be able to select the perfect suite for their needs. Swathed in history and splashed with flair and colour, each room has unique antique furniture depicting the Knysna (and South African) wood history.

Facilities

Whether you want to relax away from the madding crowd with your nose in a book, or soaking up the sun while sipping a cocktail, you will find the perfect spot at our boutique hotel.
