Watching dolphins
We booked this last minute as we had to cancel our other accommodation. The rooms are beautiful with balconies looking out over the beautiful sea. We had booked a superior suite but were upgraded to a larger one. We were able to lie in bed and watch the dolphins swim through the bay. The staff were extremely helpful and the on site restaurant offered fabulous food and views. You can also self cater here. Dispute there being many sized rooms, suites,cottages etc it never felt crazy busy and at times there was only us by the pool.

Best Hotel I Have Ever Stayed In
Absolutely fantastic. The rooms are all very very beautiful with a large kitchen, living area, outside patio overlooking the beach, braai, large bedroom with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, modern and clean bathroom with an amazing shower and a bath that makes you feel like royalty. Brenton hotel is perfect if you like your own space, prefer to cook your own meals or want to relax without the typical "hotel" feel. There is also a large gym and a magnificent pool overlooking the ocean. The location is also great, perfect to view the sunrise and take a walk on the beach as it is situated right next to the ocean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Knysna/ Brenton-on-the-sea.

Lovely stay!
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Brenton Haven. It’s a lovely resort with clean accommodation with all amenities. Beautiful ocean views from the lounge, dining and bedroom. Lounge furniture could do with a bit of an upgrade. Braai area overlooking the ocean was lovely. Bathroom is a bit cramped and the wifi signal not the best. But apart from that we had a memorable stay. A short walk to the beach. Lovely long beach, great for walks. Ate at the Butterfly Blu restaurant once and the food was amazing. It would be nice if breakfast was available too. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Best guesthouse we stayed at during our trip to South Africa! Stunning property right on the beach, you can spot dolphin from your balcony early morning.. priceless! Deon & Leane have a true sense of hospitality and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for making our b'day celebrations so special and memorable!

Spacious room with breathtaking Ocean view. Very comfortable bed with great size. Water pressure is constantly changing and too low for a good shower. Staff seems to be allowed to use the Gym as well and doesn't do so properly.
