Fair 4,0
Not worth for the money
I will not recommend this hotel to anybody. The room what we saw in the and the one which we got for stay was entirely different and was very poor. We paid 2500 for 2 days stay but the room quality was very bad. Not worth for the money. We were unhappy with the room which we got.] We stayed in another hotel in Port Eligibeth with just R 750. It was awesome and in this hotel we paid almost double and the room was worst. They offered just 250mb and there was no dustbin in the room no fridge nothing. Breakfast was ok.

Well-run, welcoming manager and well located
Stayed at Beauchamp Lodge for 5 nights as a family with 2 kids, the place is well run, welcoming and well located in Knysna, although opposite the freeway,it's easy access to the main sites in the location. There manager is friendly and breakfast was good although hot breakfast could do with seasoning for more taste. Would recommend that they add fragrancing in their bathrooms as there is a smell even when the toilets have been cleaned. Overall Cleanliness could be improved as my bedsheets still had sand from the beach after my bed was made. Otherwise the rooms were big, well furnished and comfortable with a decent dstv package.

Good 6,0
Very disappointing as two rooms were booked, confirmation received from Beauchamp Lodge indicated two rooms with twin beds on the Lower level. On check in, only one room was allocated on the Upper level. The booking confirmation was brought to the attention of the manageress. We were travelling with a 2 year old and 80 year old granny. It was a challenge for them to use the shower and climb stairs.We were shown another room at the back of the property, which was musty and could not accommodate our family of 4. Finally, we were accommodated together as a family. The main bedroom served as living and dining room. Water was obtained from the bathroom for making tea as there was no sink or tap in the bedroom/ living area. We had high expectations but were left disillusioned. A hearty breakfast was served by warm, friendly and hospitable staff. Rooms were serviced on a daily basis. Staff were willing to recommend places to visit. Manageress apologized profusely for the confusion with the booking.

Nice place, nice people, nice view.
Everything was great apart from the fact that my room (Rockefeller) was very small and was not really fit for two people with a suitcase each. I realise that I booked late and this was possibly the last available double room so I'm grateful for that but to manage other people's expectations it may be an idea to make it more clear whether the room being booked is in the Beauchamp or the Art Décor as there is a bit of difference and I had it in my head that I would be staying in a room with a wooden balcony/courtyard with seats outside that I could sit on. If it was my property I would change the Rockefeller room to a single bed (I'm presuming there is a demand for single rooms), create somewhere for suitcases to be stored and possibly extend the small balcony so that it is big enough to accommodate a sitting outside. This is meant as constructive feedback as I enjoyed my stay and the staff/owners were lovely and helpful.
