"Das Westhill Luxury Guest House ist einfach nur traumhaft! Die Gastgeberin Roeleen hat uns bereits erwartet und herzlich empfangen. Nach dem Einchecken durften wir ins Poolhaus zu einem Willkommensdrink, wo Roeleen uns einige Fotos zeigte sowie viele Tipps zu Knysna und Umgebung gab.

Unser Zimmer war wunderschön, sehr grosszügig, modern, komfortabel und mit einem super Ausblick in die Lagune. Durch die Hanglage konnten wir die Aussicht richtig geniessen und waren trotzdem überall sehr schnell mit dem Auto. Falls wir wieder einmal in Knysna sind, würden wir sofort wieder dieses Guest House bevorzugen!"

She then did a restaurant reservation for us. The breakfast was delicious and was very lovingly prepared, it just did not lack anything! Our room was beautiful, very spacious, modern, comfortable and with a great view of the lagoon. Due to the hillside we could really enjoy the view and could still get everywhere very quickly by car. If we are in Knysna again, we would immediately go back to this guest house again!)

"Lovely guest house and great hosts"
"Stayed for two nights. The owners Roeléén & Steve were very helpful and friendly. We very much enjoyed having beer and wine with them on both afternoons in their outside bar area. Nice gardens and swimming pool. Our room was modern, large, extremely clean and well furnished with views of the lagoon. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good, prepared fresh to order. WiFi was very good."
"Better than best, besser als bestens!"
"Bei unseren jährlichen Südafrikaurlauben waren wir schon in einigen Gästehäuser, Ferienhäuser und Hotels.
Diese eine Woche im Westhill Guest House gehört allerdings eindeutig zur Spitzenklasse! Die Gastgeber und Eigentümer, Roeléén und Steve bemühten sich in jeder Hinsicht um das Wohl ihrer Gäste. Sie waren fast enttäuscht, dass wir nicht das ganze Frühstück genießen wollten und uns vornehmlich auf Früchte und etwas Wurst konzentrierten. Die Zimmer sind groß, modern, auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik (sehr gutes Wifi) sowie tolle übergroße Betten. Das Badezimmer mit der großen Dusche hält jedem Vergleich stand. Den schönen Swimmingpool haben wir nicht genutzt doch erscheint er sehr, sehr sauber.
Und dann ist noch der Ausblick: Die Amerikaner sagen “1 Million Dollar View”!
Vielen Dank, wir kommen wieder!"
(On our annual South African vactation we went to some lovely guesthouses, cottages and hotels.
This one week at Westhill Guest House is definitely one of the best! The hosts and owners, Roeléén and Steve made every effort to ensure the well-being of their guests. They were almost disappointed that we did not want to enjoy the full breakfast and focused mainly on fruits and some sausage. The rooms are large, modern, state of the art (very good wifi) and great oversized beds. The bathroom with the large shower can withstand every comparison. The beautiful swimming pool we did not use but it seems very, very clean.
And then there is the view: The Americans say “1 Million Dollar View”!
Thank you, we will be back!)
"Wir hatten für drei Nächte das Westhill Luxury Guest House gebucht und waren sehr angetan von den schönen, geräumigen Zimmern und der ausführlichen Begrüßung und Einführung durch Roelèèn und Steve. Alles war neu, blütenweiss, sauber und sehr komfortabel, innen und aussen ohne Makel. Der Ausblick von dem Balkon auf die Lagune von Knysna ist ein Erlebnis, die Rundumbetreung, besonders beim Frühstück war fast zuviel."
(We booked Westhill Luxury Guest House for three nights and were very impressed with the beautiful, spacious rooms and the extensive welcome and introduction by Roeléén and Steve. Everything was new, white, clean and very comfortable, inside and out without blemish. The view from the balcony to the lagoon of Knysna is an experience, the hospitality, especially at breakfast was almost too much.)
"3rd Time visiting Westhill Guesthouse and always such a pleasure! Spacious rooms, lovely modern decorated and everything and more you need for a social or business trip to Knysna! Thank you again Roeleen and Steve for you hospitality! See you soon!"
"True luxury and welcome"
"Excellent spacious rooms decorated beautifully with top finishes. Views that no pictures do justice to. But the reason you will go back are the owners who make you feel so welcome and special. Thank you Steve and Roeleen for making our anniversary weekend exceptional"
"Westhill Luxury Guest House proved to be the perfect place to stay for a relaxing getaway as well as a great base whilst exploring some of the attractions around Knysna. Hosts Roeleen and Steve couldn't have done any more to help make our stay more memorable than it became and that was obvious from the moment we arrived and we received a complimentary welcome drink at the bar next to the pool area, where one could take a dip or just lie around on the sunbeds provided, and we received a full run down of all the facilities whilst getting to know our hosts a little better. The Guest House is in an almost perfect location, on a quiet residential street with amazing views across the Knysna Lagoon to the Knysna Heads and the Indian Ocean, yet also only a few minutes walk into the town centre and the Waterfront. Our room was modern, clean, airy and comfortable with a huge comfy bed, a choice of pillows, slippers, fluffy gowns, toiletries, tea & coffee facilities, sat tv alarm clock radio with usb points, air con and fan, safe and a full range of adaptors and plug sockets so gadgets could be used and charged, no matter which part of the world you'd come from. Also, there is nothing worse than a buzzy old mini fridge which one finds in many b&b's but the owners have gotten around this by having one larger communal fridge stocked with a good selection of drinks which one could help oneself to 24/7 or store ones own drinks in. The breakfast is served between 7.30 - 9.30 and all guests sit at a large round table where they can chat and get to know each other. A wide range of goodies can be had at breakfast including cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices, continental style or full English breakfasts, there was enough on offer, one could vary what one ate from day to day without getting bored of eating the same every day. Breakfast was also the ideal chance to get some local knowledge and tips about places to go and explore and our hosts had some wonderful recommendations about restaurants where we could eat and drink in the evenings. They also had a lot of information on local attractions and were quite happy making reservations for us. So Westhill proved to be the perfect place to stay during our visit to Knysna and we will surely be returning some day soon in the not to distant future!"
"Traumhaft übet den Dächern von Knysna" (Dreamlike over the roofs of Knysna)
"Wir waren 14 Tage zu Gast in diesem wunderschönen und neuen Guesthouse. Roellin und Steve, die Gastgeber, haben es verstanden, uns außergewöhnlich freundlich und zuvorkommend auf familiäre Weise zu verwóhnen, Golf - und Restaurantbuchungen zu erledigen und waren in vielen Dingen sehr hilfsbereit. Das sehr geräumige und außerordertlich saubere Zimmer war nach unserem Geschmack, zudem ein schöner Balkon mit Blick über Knysna und die gesamte Bucht. Phantastisch ! Das Auto konnte im Innenbereich sicher geparkt werden, für die Golfbags war ein seperates "Kammerl" abschließbar zur Verfügung. Ein Swimmingpool zum abkühlen, ein zugänglicher Gartenbereich und wenn nötig eine Bar mit Getränken. Rundum: Ein wirklich toller Aufenthalt. Noch eine Anmerkunk: Wir meinen, für vier Sterne ist die Unterkunft unterbewertet, auch gemessen daran, was so alles mit 4 Sternen angeboten wird."
(We spent 14 days as guests at this wonderful and new Guest House. Roeleen and Steve, the hosts, managed to spoil us exceptionally friendly and accommodating in a family way, making golf and restaurant bookings and were very helpful in many ways The very spacious and extremely clean room was to our liking, plus a nice balcony with views over Knysna and the entire bay. Fantastic ! The car could be safely parked inside, for the golf bags a separate lockable "store room" was available. A swimming pool to cool off, and accessible garden area and if neccessary a bar with drinks. All round: A really great stay. Another note: We think, for 4 stars the accommodation is underrated, measured against what is offered by other 4 stars.)
"Enorm vriendelijk en gastvrij ontvangen door Steve en Roeleen. Het voelt als thuiskomen in dit mooie en schone guesthouse! Kamers prima in orde en een heerlijk bed & fijne douche. Uitgebreid ontbijt en veel tips van hen gekregen. Dit is echt een aanrader, 100%!!!!"
(Steve and Roeleen are extremely friendly and hospitable. It feels like coming home in this beautiful and clean guesthouse! Rooms fine and a lovely bed and nice shower. Full breakfast and received many tips from them. This is really recommended, 100% !!!!)
"Tolles B&B mit sehr freundlichen Gastgebern" (Great B&B with very friendly hosts)
"Wir waren 5 Tage bei Roeléén und Steve. Tolle, neue moderne Zimmer (maritimer Stil), sehr sauber, gute Betten, neue Technik (Steckdosen), Klimaanlage und Ventilator im Zimmer, es fehlte an nichts. Es gibt insg. nur 3 Zimmer. Gutes Frühstück, nette Gespräche. Wir fühlten uns wie bei Freunden. Schöner Garten mit beheiztem Swimmingpool. Besser geht es nicht !!"
(We spent 5 days with Roeléén and Steve. Great, new modern rooms (maritime style), very clean, good beds, new technology (sockets), air conditioning and fan in the room, nothing was missing. There are only 3 rooms. Good breakfast, nice conversation. We felt like fiends. Nice garden with heated swimming pool. It could not be better !!)
"Amazing rooms - super spacious bathroom with accessories. Loved the soft dressing gowns. Everything light, new and spotless. Extra comfy bed. Balcony offering great views over Knysna Lagoon. Easy off road parking. Nothing too much trouble for our helpful hostess. What more could you ask for. We'll be back. Thanks for everything Roeleen."
"Beautifull guest house in a very nice town. Very warm welcome by Roeléén who makes sure that her guests have a great time. Lots of things to do in this area, like whale watching. Several golf courses nearby."
"Nice guesthouse on walking distance from Knysna centre. Very spacious and comfortable rooms with balconies and sea view. Great breakfast. Roeleen is an excellent host, who gave us a warm welcome and lots of good restaurant and travel suggstions. Would definitely recommmend!"
"Westhill luxury guesthouse is echt een fantastisch! De kamers zijn super ruim, lekker licht en heerlijk schoon. De locatie van het guesthouse is midden in Knysna, ook top dus. Roeleen, de eigenaresse is vriendelijk en erg behulpzaam. Ze zal zorgen dat je niets te kort komt. Echt een aanrader. Voor ons is het een tot ziens."
(Westhill luxury guesthouse is really fantastic! The rooms are super spacious, very light and wonderfully clean. The location of the guesthouse is in the middle of Knysna, so also good. Roeleen, the owner is friendly and very helpful. She will make sure that you are not short of anything. Really recommended. For us it is until we see you again.)
"A gem of a find"
"We stayed at Westhill for 2 nights last week, what a little gem of a find. Roeleen had even booked a table for dinner for us on the Saturday night. The Seaview room was large, airy, contemporary and comfortable . Breakfast was continental followed by a choice of hot - cooked to order. It was a great choice and a place I would love to return to. Thanks so much Roeleen"
"Friendly Luxury B & B"
"Large, clean beautifully furnished rooms and bathrooms. All with balconies with fantastic views over the lagoon. Friendly and helpful hosts, good breakfast. Well done Roeleen and Steve. We stayed for 2 weeks and will return. Steve is a mine of information about local history, amenities and places to visit. Knysna is a friendly safe little town and is an excellent centre for touring the area. It has a large selection of cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. There are several wildlife parks and centres nearby and a trip out of the heads by boat to see the marine life was a bonus. We couldn't have been made more welcome. Thank you."
"Outstanding first class Guest House"
"Two amazing hosts in Roeleen and Steve, nothing is to much trouble. Large, clean and well appointed rooms all with fantastic views. Breakfast is above the standard fare and will keep you going all day, superb poached eggs. The lodge really has the wow factor, it enjoys an excellent location that is ideal for exploring all that the surrounding area has to offer. We found our hosts invaluable, they provided information about places we would never have found ourselves and even arranged a tour of the local township. The tour was outstanding, we visited a variety of places and all the people we met were so friendly and pleased that we had come to see them. Without having to travel far, we were able to visit the Elephant Park and Snake Park. An excellent wildlife park is nearby and well worth a visit is Simola Golf Club. Knysna is a lovely town with excellent facilities and is an ideal base to explore the area. We were with friends and that added to the enjoyment. I can truly say this was the holiday of a lifetime. We really do hope to be able to go back to Roeleen and Steve's delightful home."
"Luxury Guest House in Knysna"
"The Westhill Guest House is truly luxury with large beautifully styled rooms all with fantastic views over Knysna and the Lagoon. The owners Roeleen and Steve have created this wonderful Guest House which must be the best in Knysna. They are excellent hosts and were very helpful providing local knowledge and advice. Westhill is located in a peaceful and extremely secure location with great views yet near the town facilities. All rooms are spacious and have private balcony's with quality en suite bathrooms. The breakfast was plentiful and catered for all tastes. The outdoor pool and bar was an added bonus. This Luxury Guest House is certainly value for money. I would recommend Westhill to friends and family and will return as soon as possible."
"Excellent Guest House"
"We stayed in the Nautical Room for three nights and could not find a single negative comment to make, however small. Great hosts were very attentive offering good advice on the area. Excellent breakfast made to order. A continental option is also available. The guest house was exceptionally clean. Easy stroll into town for dinner with a restaurant ordered taxi costing just 60 rand for the return. Overall, a very good experience."
"Just wonderful! Very friendly hosts, marvelous breakfasts, a relaxing atmosphere to unwind in and a lovely view of the lagoon in Knysna. It overlooks the town but is far enough away not to be disturbed by the everyday noises. Everything one could wish for while taking a break from everyday life."
"Relaxing guest house"
"We kicked off our recent holiday here, looking for somewhere we could simply relax and rest - perfect. It’s been operating for less than 6 months so everything is brand spanking new and it all works! It’s on a corner plot with secure off-street parking. We had a big bathroom with roomy ‘dinner-plate’ shower; spacious airy room with huge comfortable bed; fluffy dressing-gowns and slippers; effective air-con; the usual tea/coffee station (unfortunately, the mugs are lethal) and safe; reliable free wi-fi plus a dazzling array of well-thought out electrical sockets and charge points including USBs and, uniquely, UK sockets for internationals who may have forgotten their adaptors. No fridge in the room, but a large well-stocked one opposite the communal lounge. This currently looks rather like a doctor’s waiting room but as we were out and about it wasn’t an issue. Only four rooms, and each with a small south-facing verandah seating area with a fantastic view down to Knysna Heads. A warm welcome proffered by hosts Steve (from Watford, UK) & Roleen (originally from EC but been almost everywhere) on arrival, with drinks in the pool house bar. The pool isn’t really big enough for serious swimming but provided a refreshing dip and loungers were available. Breakfast was served at a friendly round table in the dining room where we sat with other guests but received individual service. My husband loved the daily warm rolls in particular. If any corners have been cut it’s in the quality of juice and yoghurts which seems a bit odd, but a great deal of care was taken on presenting a personalised hot breakfast as well as a carefully presented plate of cold meats & cheese. So new that there are no directional brown signs on the street yet. If you struggle, look for ‘Paradise Heads’ and take the first right after that. A short but steep walk into town if you’re feeling keen. A great find."
"This guesthouse is lovely, we had a very nice stay there. I's located on the hill and has a nice view over Knysna. The room was spacious and very clean (with sea view!). Especially the hosts are extremely helpful and know the region very well to give good tips. Breakfast is great too. We can recommend it!"
"We had a very comfortable stay here. The room was spacious and very clean, with everything you need for a super stay! The guesthouse itself is within easy walking distance to all the wonderful things Knysna has to offer. Most importantly, the owners couldn't do more to help us with our adventures. So kind - even helping us find some good discounts. I loved the bar, and my partner also loved the swimmingpool and started every morning with a swim - I started every morning with an excellent breakfast! (I recommend the scrambled egg!)."
"Very beautiful guest house with lovable hosts"
"The guest house ist gorgeous. The view is absolutely great. The breakfast is excellent. Steve and Roleen (owners) are the most helpful and pleasant People you could hope to meet. Roleen for instance made a doctor´s appointment and came along with us as I became sick during the stay. We had a great habitation and will definately come back. Thanks Roleen and Steve for your hospitality!"

"Wohnen bei Freunden" (Living with Friends)
"Wir haben ein paar wunderschöne Tage in diesem traumhaften Guesthouse verbracht. Die Besitzer Roeleen und Steven haben sich so herzlich um uns gekümmert, dass wir uns schon nach einem Tag wie Freunde fühlten. Unser Zimmer mit Blick zum Meer war ein Traum! Groß, hell, modern und mit allem Komfort. Ebenso das Bad. Alles ist noch ganz neu und blitzblank sauber. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Es gibt nur drei Zimmer, daher ist es sehr ruhig und angenehm. Das Frühstück ist üppig und lecker. Alle Gäste sitzen an einem großen runden Tisch im Esszimmer, so kommt man zwanglos ins Gespräch. Der gepflegte Garten mit Pool ist wunderschön, ebenso die kleine Poolbar. Die Lage ist super, fussläufig 20 Minuten zum Hafen. Sicherer Stellplatz fürs Auto. Schöner und netter hätten wir in Knysna nicht wohnen können. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!!
(We spent a few wonderful days in this fantastic guesthouse. The owners Roeleen and Steven looked after us so warmly that only after a day we felt like friends. Our room overlooking the sea was a dream! Large, bright modern and with all comforts. Likewise the bathroom. Everything is still brand new and sparkling clean. Very tastefully furnished. There are only three rooms, so it is very quiet and pleasant. The breakfast is plentiful and delicious. All guests sit at a large round table in the dining room, so you easily get into a conversation. The well kept garden with pool is beautiful, as is the small pool bar. The location is great, 20 minutes walk to the harbour. Secure parking space for the car. We could not have stayed in a more beautiful or nicer place in Kynsna. We will definitely come back!!)
"Just not long enough"
"If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Knysna and you’re unsure where to go – just book this place and stop worrying. The house itself is immaculate and tastefully done, and the amount of thought that Steve and Roleen have put in to it’s renovation is impressive to say the least (UK plug sockets for instance) and they seem to have thought of everything. The rooms are really spacious and light, the bathrooms are huge, the pool area is lovely and well maintained, the breakfast area (and breakfast itself) are excellent. The owners are the most helpful and friendly people you could hope to meet – they even reserved a table at a restaurant and then dropped us off as they were going that way anyway. They will happily give you lots of information and helpful tips for your stay if you want them, or leave you alone if that’s what you want. The house is located just up a hill in town, which means that it has great views of the bay from your private balcony but also means you’re away from any noise. We really had a perfect (but too brief) stay – I could go on and on, but you should just go and see for yourself."

"Luxury accommodation in paradise"
"Beautifuly decorated rooms with spacious bathrooms. Felt Very safe as I was traveling on my own. And the parking area is also very secure. The location is very central and the view is absolutely amazing."
"Beautiful & relaxed atmosphere"
"Beautiful guest house and lovely hosts! Very private with great views and gorgeous rooms with the most fabulous bedding, we had a lovely break away and we will recommend Westhill Luxury Guest house to anyone."
"I would go back in a heartbeat! Such a lovely BnB and the hosts were incredibly helpful, giving us such great tips of where to go for experiences and food etc. Trip of a lifetime that they only enhanced with all their knowledge of the area. The BnB itself was gorgeous - very spacious, clean, had everything you need, comfy bed, and the pool was just what you needed after a day of exploring! The breakfast was yummy too. The views are incredible to wake up to. They might be relatively new but they got it all spot on. Thanks!"

"If you look at my recessions to date, you can see that I practically never give away full points. This guesthouse is different. First to the house. It is modern, clean and offers a high standard. The location is very good and in 15 minutes you reach the waterfront. The breakfast is rich and wishes are fulfilled individually. To the hosts. Steve and Roeléén are two good-hearted people who know incredibly much about the local and even more distant activities. They are very helpful and help with reservations and other things. We also had some interesting discussions over a glass of wine and took a lot with us. I could call them host families instead of hosts. Anyway, we will stop by at the next visit, you more than deserve the full score. PS: Pay attention to the little tree..."
"Fantastic hosts and lovely clean room with nice view"
"Pure luxury, beautiful rooms, amazing views and the most welcoming couple who take care of you. Thank you Roeleen and Steve for making our anniversary weekend exceptional. I strongly recommend Westhill in every respect"
