Our stay at Bridgewater Manor was perfect. Vee was such a friendly and helpful host and helped us to get a table at a nice restaurant. Our room was very cosy and nicely decorated. From the balcony we had a fantastic view over the lagoon. The breakfast was prepared freshly for us according to our wishes. We would come back... More

This is the best guest house on the garden route. I couldn't really fault this place. We had a room without a view, but had dinner on the main terrace overlooking the ocean - much better than going out to a tourist restaurant. rooms were great. bathroom a little old, but still fine. breakfast was great. highly recommend.

Beautiful rooms and gorgeous views of the Knysna Heads. V was an excellent host with great recommendations and knowledge of the area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the breakfast, and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

We liked the large honeymoon suite with balcony and view. The owner lady is very friendly and helps for everything, e.g. restaurant recommendations and reservations. We liked also the secluded parking lot and the easy access with our luggage. The breakfasts are pleasant and always come along with a friendly talk. Knysna is a optimal location for hiking in the...

Tucked away on the hill above a semi-busy road, it was quite and peaceful; you wouldn't know the road was below. We had the honeymoon suite (room 3) and loved the view and over sized shower! It had a small, private balcony to enjoy the scenery. (The only flaw with the room is the window blinds were broken, missing sections... More

Spent 3 nights at Bridgewater Manor being looked after by V. She organised our taxi driver and booked our restaurants for us, very helpful, friendly and easy to get along with. Breakfast was delicious and the room was huge with a wonderful view of the lagoon.

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
