We had a very relaxing stay for two nights. The facilities were excellent and Vee, the manageress, was wonderful. She made sure all her guests were organised and suggested restaurants and day trips to suit each guest and made the relevant bookings.She is quite a character and we thoroughly enjoyed her company. Whilst the room was lovely and we had... More

Bridgewater Manor was a truly great experience. Vee (the manager) treated us like family guests and nothing was too much trouble. She gave us good recommendations for places to visit, and for restaurants, and made taxi bookings as well as bookings for the restaurants. We had a front room with double shower, and a balcony that looked out over the... More

We had a wonderful stay at this B and B in Knysna. Vee was so helpful and keen to make sure everyone had a great experience. She advised on local restaurants and activities and made bookings for us. The view across the lagoon is so beautiful.

our Room in this Guesthouse had stunning views (the honeymoon suite) a fabulous double shower & a bathtub with a view of the Lagoon, what more can you want!! (maybe a little fridge in the room). Vee is a superb hostess who goes out of her way to be helpful. Breakfast is very good with lots of choice. Well recommended.

We (a party of three) stayed at this guesthouse in November 2014. We had two rooms, a double and a single room. The guest house is tucked away on a hillside a few minutes above the main road in Knysna. The decor was of a colonial style, the manager was very helpful. A full cooked breakfast was available in the... More

We are 2 elderly couples who stayed for 3 nights at this delightful B&B. The rooms with stunning views over the lagoon are big, comfy and clean, especially the honeymoon room. The breakfast room is also overlooking the lagoon and we were served a scrumptious breakfast. Our host was very helpful as to advice on restaurants and things to experience... More

We stayed here for two nights in October on our garden route tour, and we loved it so much we booked two additional nights for our trip back the other direction. The grounds are lovely and the rooms are very comfortable, but our favorite thing about our stay was the two women who run the B&B. They were so helpful... More

We had two very comfortable nights stay at the Bridgewater Manor, looked after all the way by Vee. She made sure we had everything we needed, booked us in for dinner on the waterfront, ensured we got our 10% reduction for the Featherbed Nature Reserve excursion, and generally made a complete fuss of us. Breakfasts were excellent, and our room... More

Lovely place with stunning location. Great place to stop. Hard work lugging the bags though😃 Vee made us very welcome. Breakfast was the best so far. Excellent restaurant recommendation in the anchorage. The garden room was lovely, other rooms capitalise on the sea view
