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

Vee welcomed us warmly after our long journey from a safari. We were both extremely tired and in need of some comfort, which we got straight away. The room and views were equally stunning and breakfast was very tasty the next morning. Vee recommended various points of interest and restaurants which we managed to check out before we left. Unfortunately... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Bridgewater Manor, with stunning views of the lagoon. The honeymoon suite is highly recommended. Lynn and Vee were amazing hosts and very helpful with sightseeing and directions.

After recently staying at both Bridgewater Manor and Bridgewater B&B in Knysna, we've always been made to feel so much at home with our dirty bicycles and all. On both occasions we took part in MTB cycle races and were treated with such a lot of respect even though we hade weird requests and funny hours for breakfast. The staff... More

This was our second trip to this B&B. It is situated above the main road into Knysna with the most stunning view over the lagoon. We could lie in bed and enjoy the ebb and flow of the lagoon. The B&B is so clean and tidy. The host, Vee, is a delight. She is a real personality and happily books... More

We arrived rather late, after dark, and we went to the wrong Bridgewater! Be sure you know which one you're going to. This one is in more of a residential area off of the main road, but once found, it's lovely. Very classy in its decoration, and the manager was very helpful, giving us directions to the restaurant we wanted... More
