  • Andy & Vicki Askham
    From the moment Wayne greeted us as we arrived,we have been made to feel very welcome by all the extremely friendly,efficient and professional staff. Wayne couldn’t be a better host – a mind of information and so helpful! Laurelle, Martha and Cedric have made this a home away from home, a lovely experience. We’ll be back to Knysna and won’t hesitate to return to the Alexander. Baie Dankie

    Thank you all for a wonderful four days. Don’t think I have ever seen Eric so relaxed!!We appreciated all your hard work and those little touches that make this such a special place. Enjoyed your company too and the gastro evening was a great success. We will have to diet before we come again! We will be back very soon and will bring friends to share it with next time.

  • Gerry  & Sue
    This is our second stay. We hated it the first time + we hate it even more now. This is because after leaving we are totally + utterly depressed because we know that every guest house after The Alexander is going to be disappointing . Where are the other 2 stars? There is insufficient differentiation between The Alexander and everything else. The staff are wonderful + could not do enough for us. We look forward to our next stay for two whole months in September . Until then – chow! PS. We’ll miss you all specially the puppies!
    Gerry & Sue
  • Andrew & Hilda
    We spent a wonderful 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon, and we were spoilt rotten! We love the decor, food (especially banana bread), atmosphere, pets and hosts. Thanks for a memorable stay.

  • Gillian and Debbie
    Well what can you say the Alexander is perfect! The attention to detail in every way cannot be matched. The room was so lovely we didn’t leave it in the evenings. Wayne and all the staff have clearly worked hard at creating such a wonderful place to stay, just sorry it’s not longer.
    Gillian and Debbie
  • Lomalan & Preeti Reddy
    Overwhelmingly breathtaking place. Very friendly and laid back atmosphere. All staff were great & always had a smile on their faces! Fantastic place for our honeymoon, one of the best places we have stayed in, Knysna is awesome!

  • Lisa + Graeme
    What a whirlwind trip – although we were only here for one night we had a wonderful time – the views were magnificent, the room extravagance, the service outstanding – we really like the personal attention + your eye for detail. Thank you!
    Lisa + Graeme
  • Jaroslav & Hanka Rous
    People like differentiation, people like to express their unique views, to differentiate from the others. The Alexander is the way how to unify people’s view, opinions. So even when we would like to express something unique and different than the other guests, we simply can not! Our view is an extract of guests views wishing The Alexander before us, Excellent, perfect, THANK YOU!We will return!!
    Jaroslav & Hanka Rous
  • Terry & Shelia
    Words fail us. The most relaxing, welcoming & friendly place we have ever stayed. An outstandingly beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it with us. We will hopefully be back in the not to distant future.
    Terry & Shelia
  • Jim & Shelley
    Seven days and seven nights of bliss. The hospitality of your team and your home was just amazing to say the least. We will be back for more, for sure. All the best for your future success!

  • Malcolm & Christine
    After 2 weeks @ your home, we’ve sadly off. Once again we had the most enjoyable & welcoming stay. Knysna just wouldn’t be the same without the Alexander House. The Captain’s Suite was our home away from home allowing us to relax + sleep for hours. The breakfast spread was wide enough that we really needed to make choices, however the fish paste, cheese & onion marmalade always wound up on our plates. Both Xmas lunch & New Years Eve dinner party was festive + fun, especially the extra treats for Malcolm’s birthday. But more importantly, the warm + friendly staff made our holiday so comfortable & easy to play golf, eat fresh food & drink some of SA’s best wine. Thanks to Wayne, Raeleen, Cedric & the staff our holiday will be one to remember for times to come. We look forward to coming back.
