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

We booked a standard room, but as the honeymoon suite was available she moved us in their for no cost. this was a lovely room, and the views out on the water were stunning. Knysna has a nice waterfront area with a few good... More

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
