We spent five nights at this hotel in one of the cottages. So much has been written about Belvidere Manor that it is difficult to say anything new. The cottage we stayed in was lovely and had everything you could possibly want. They even have their own covered parking spaces. Although I never watch TV whilst away I did watch... More

Belvidere Manor is a beautiful setting under any circumstances, with stunning views, beautifully appointed cottage suites, manicured lawns, colourful gardens and a sparkling pool. But what Sue and her team pulled out of the hat to make a memorable day for my son's wedding was remarkable. He and his fiancé had chosen to have a small intimate beach wedding, and... More

After a fantastic safari the one thing our kids were missing was space to run around freely without the threat of being a lion's dinner. So when looking for a base to explore the Garden Route we decided to use Belvidere Manor. The hotel is around 5 minutes drive from Knysna town, set on a hill overlooking the lagoon and... More

We stayed at the Belvidere for 3 nights whilst visiting Knysna. Accommodation consists of lodges located either side of the main house all of which have views across the lagoon. Lodges are of a good standard comparable with a good sized timeshare lodge and include well equipped kitchen areas. Our lodge (number 29) had 3 bedrooms - 1 x double;... More

We again stayed as for many years for a week at this charming hotel in one of their lagoon cottages which we (and so many others) find so ideal and well furnished and gives a change to being in a hotel. Breakfast is good and in particular when on the terrace and we found the old Bell pub great fun... More

The cottage was just a dream! Equipped with highest standard, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff is great, but there is one guy who made our stay even more beautiful as we expected it: Jeffrey. He took care about our breakfast, served spare ribs for dinner and in between he made sure that we everything was ok! In short:... More

I have stayed at The Belvidere several times and what I like about is the amazing situation so much nicer than staying in a hotel. The accommodation is in houses and cottages interspersed with lovely shrubs bordering the paths and an amazing view of the lagoon - at night the view is beautiful with the lights of Knysna in the...

Within 1 hour of arriving we were already regretting that we were only staying 3 nights. It is such a wonderful setting with views over the lagoon. We had a 3 bedroom cottage (for 2 of us!) which was immaculate. We were initially concerned about the lack of air conditioning but the ceiling fans were clearly new and very high... More

My wife and I stayed here in January 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are actually cottages. We stayed in a lagoon facing cottage as opposed to a garden cottage. Our cottage was well appointed and our only complaint is that we booked a double room but the so-called double bed consisted of twin beds pushed together which we... More
