"We spent a very special four days here. The room was very comfortable and well presented and the view from the room out across the sea was superb. The facilities were very good and we were able to have an evening Braai looking out across the waves. The sound of the waves breaking on the rocks was music to the ears and lulled us to sleep every night. Excellent food, excellent service and an all round excellent establishment."

"Absolutely worth every cent"

(South Africa) shanta vengothasamy | 8 May 2014

"Semi-self catering units with the most gorgeous view of the Knysna sea. Pity we only stayed at this 4-star for only one night, but such a comfortable, yet luxurious stay it was! Worth another visit. Beach was 6km walk down the road, with Buffalo Bay in sight! Such a bonus."

We were greeted by Art who was so warm and friendly. The room was spacious and the view was breathtaking. The beach is literally right there and lying in bed listening to the waves break is amazing. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you again and we hope to visit again soon."

"Wow, wow and wow. What a fantastic view, what great rooms, what great service, and such a shame we had to go.

I must say I have stayed at hotels, and Guesthomes around the world, but nothing comes close to this in this price class and 4 star experience. The rooms are cleaned everyday, the service is amazing, and the rooms are great with a very large bathroom. Also the private parking under roof close to the rooms is a plus point.

The only minus point is it is a bit of a drive to Knysna (about 10-15 minutes), but the scenery is breath taking. Also, in Brenton on Sea there not much going on. Not even a petrol station. Small town, fantastic Beach though. If you want privacy away from the crowds with a feeling of being pampered, then this is place for you."

The rather long commute to Knysna was compensated by the terrific view from our bed down the cliffs and to the sea first thing waking up in the morning. The rooms did not leave any wishes open and can be rated above standard level. Everybody working there was friendly and helpful."


"WOW!!!!!"

(South Africa) Sam van der Merwe | 22 August 2009

(South Africa) Andre Buys | 3 August 2009

"What can I say,When we arrived at Brenton on the rocks. I was amazed at the friendly staff and the room was great. All you needed was available. When we got to the balcony,we where blown away by the view of the ocean. Its a great place

to discover the Knysna area. "

"A week's bliss in the Honeymoon Suite"

(United Kingdom) Stuart Anderson | 27 February 2007

"Truly delightful and memorable location with our balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean

The walk to Buffalo Bay and back is good exercise but not strenuous however cover yourself with sun cream as it is easy to burn yourself even in late February without realising the strength of the sun. more

"Truly delightful and memorable location with our balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean

The walk to Buffalo Bay and back is good exercise but not strenuous however cover yourself with sun cream as it is easy to burn yourself even in late February without realising the strength of the sun.

Great restaurants in the area, particularly in and around Knysna for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Small criticism - we would have liked the bedding and towels to have been changed and the suite serviced during our week's stay "

The spectacular view and luxurious finishes leave you feeling spoilt and relaxed. 5 minutes walk to the beach plus a small pool with wooden deck and tanning chairs perfect for summer. The weather can be a problem but that's knysna! The double room with kitchenette is quite small but cleverly designed so you a couple can be comfortable. The hosts are friendly and helpful and I would certainly recommend it for a long weekend or perhaps a little longer."

"We spent a relaxing 3 nights at Brenton on Rocks. A clean, professionally maintained establishment. Friendly staff - we were greeted with big smiles and we felt right at home. A fantastic sea view - would be great for whale- and dolphin-watching. The pool deck & bar area is great. Parking is a bit of a problem - some shade ports will help. Highly recommended for self-catering because breakfast is mediocre - no provision for vegetarians (fresh fruit, muesli) and especially the awful weak coffee needs much improvement."

"First of all we have to state it is a groovy location at the brenton sea site! Highly recommended. Great and friendly hospitality, safe area, excellent breakfast, well equipped and clean rooms and public areas, a small but quite good swimming pool, a well organized establishment. Quite good equipped also for a self catering stay.
Sometimes the noise of a the indian ocean surf roughly 60 m below the guesthouse could disturb your sleep but neverthelss it is a uniquely feeling to hear the voice of the ocean.
If we spend another time at the garden route, we will stay again at "Brenton on rocks Guesthouse"
