About Stannards Guest Lodge

Stannards Guest Lodge recently reassessed and confirmed 4-Star Guest House, is located in a peaceful and leafy area on the Eastern outskirts in Knysna, 2 minutes away from the Lagoon and world-class golf courses, and 5 minutes from the famous Heads, town center and vibrant waterfront.

The four Standard and the two Superior bedrooms are tastefully decorated to a high standard, they have their own private entrance and patio overlooking the landscaped garden. Room facilities include DStv, fan, heater, tea tray and Wi-Fi. The two luxury self-catering garden cottages include spacious lounge with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, flat screen LCD TV, I-pod docking station and safe.

Tasty and generous buffet-breakfasts can be enjoyed indoors or on the deck overlooking the garden and the large pool, prolific with bird life. “Afro-chic” lounge has a fireplace for chilly winter days and a little “boutique” for something different. Day trips to explore the Garden Route can be made so easily from this ideal base. And your hosts, Patrick and Helene-Marie, will always be available to share their local knowledge of the area and arrange bookings for activities and restaurants.

                          Patrick and Helen are suburb hosts at this lovely Lodge. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.  Everything is perfectly maintained and the lush garden adds to the relaxing environment.  We enjoyed the pool, French bowls and private bar. The self catering garden cottage we stayed in, was the best spot on the premises - private, but not far from the fun. We thought that the breakfast menu could include more warm foods like bacon and freshly grilled eggs. Anneen, Petrus, Emilie and Sané.

                          We enjoyed our stay at Stannards Guest Lodge very much. The room was large and comfortable, the gardens and pool area were a perfect place to relax after a busy day. Hosts very friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

                          Stannards is set in lovely grounds in a really quiet spot within easy reach of Knysna. We stayed in the spacious two bedroom cottage which is tastefully decorated and provided us with a comfortable and well equipped base from which to explore. Helene and Patrick are excellent hosts. They are genuine, friendly and able to provide tips and information about what to do in the area. We were really impressed with Stannards and would certainly love to visit again.
