With modern tones in decoration and style, Alfred’s Manor is the epitome of contemporary class. Our staff is attentively present without being intrusive, our rooms offer all you would need with a minimalistic flair and Alfred’s Manor is set in a location that is hard to rival, except by some of the most exotic setting on the planet. You will fall in love with Alfred’s Manor when you stay with us, for many happy returns when visiting the area in future. 

Due to its central location, Alfred’s Manor is the ideal base when setting out to explore enchanting Knysna and the greater Garden Route. Not only will guests be able to experience everything the town has to offer, the holiday town of Plettenberg Bay is only a short drive away, as is Sedgefield, which is home to a growing community of artists. 

The area offers a great range of restaurants, activities, parks, reserves, rivers, meanders, farm stalls and much much more. Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the world, and home to the Cango Caves is less than an hour’s drive from Knysna.

With only four luxurious 5-star rooms, guests staying at Alfred’s Manor will not only enjoy the privacy of their suites, but the manor will never be overly busy or a humdrum of activity – ideal for visitors who wish for peace and quiet. 

All our rooms have views of the estuary (albeit one only partially) and opens onto a balcony or patio, with an exquisite pool in the garden below (where we serve cocktails and snacks on days when the weather permits). 

There is no better way to wake from a dream-filled rest than to the vistas you’ll enjoy at Alfred’s Manor, inviting peace and tranquility into your day. When setting out from Alfred’s Manor for a day of business of pleasure, you’ll feel revitalised and recharged for what lies ahead. 

Stylishly finished with only the best bedding, décor and amenities, all our rooms offer the lap of luxury to our valued guests – they have been refurbished to the highest of standards with modern en-suite bathrooms, fans for summer and heaters for winter, with a mini-bar for refreshment and televisions with satellite channels for entertainment.
