Great place to stay in Knysna. Central, comfortable, friendly - all the nice words one can think of to describe a Guest House that is well worth a visit. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, staff is friendly (Vee is the best!!), breakfast is great, property is safe and secure.

We had booked the honeymoon suite and found it a very comfortable and spacious room with an excellent view. The room is very clean and neat with a comfortable bed and good linen. We were there during a couple of colder days and found the room a bit cold as it only had a single wall heater, but the beds... More

Bridgewater Manor is a lovely place to stay in Knysna. Our host Vee was truly fantastic - welcoming us, helping to book activities, genial, warm and extremely friendly. The guest house is extremely homely - our room looked over the lagoon, it was spacious and the bathroom was fantastic. As British gay travellers you can often feel vulnerable in some... More

Stayed here with my family in Feb for just one night to break our journey from Cape Town to Addo. Knysna is a beautiful area. The property is in a quiet area elevated looking out over the lagoon with great views. We arrived a little late but Vee organized a restaurant for us very quickly along with a taxi with... More

The house, the room and the pool area are wonderful. From our balcony we had a fantastic view over the Knysna lagune. Unfortunately at night you can hear the noise from the N2, especially the trucks are very noisy. Apart from the noise we can fully recommend this B&B

Amazing place to stay, we couldn't have asked for more! Vee the host offers a wonderful experience, is a great source of knowledge and super helpful. Room was immaculate with breathtaking views. We loved ever minute and didn't want to leave. Couldn't recommend highly enough and we would definitely hope to return in the future.

This is a very nice place to stay and and is within walking distance of the town. The rooms have wonderful views of the lagoon. We had the studio room which was nicely decorated and very clean. We enjoyed our 2 night stay very much and found Vee to be a warm and welcoming hostess.
