We loved Lynn and Pat. They made our stay so comfortable with friendly staff, a great breakfast and a beautiful little B&B. Highly recommend the accommodations. Windows are double paned so no road noise...we stayed right in front.

We first stayed here in the summer of 2013 (Jan/Feb) for a few nights and thought it would deserve another visit, as it's a good centre for touring the area around Knysna and Sedgefield. The guesthouse is by the main N2 road facing the lagoon, on the western side of Knysna. The main house is set back from the road... More

We counted ourselves so lucky to have found this place in Knysna. Lynne and Pat were super hosts ,so helpful in suggesting places to visit and even had brochures/menus for places to dine out......going so far as to book a table if required. Our garden rooms were lovely with a private sitting area in the courtyard. The residents lounge was... More

This guest house, has a nice dinning and sitting room. the rooms were well sized and had everything you needed, but would highly recommend you don't stay in the up stairs front rooms as the road noise was very bad and disrupted our sleep. People in the down stairs and back rooms said the noise wasn't too bad. Breakfast was... More

We stayed at this B&B for one night. The place is really nice and every room was so pretty. We were walk-in customers, and our host brought us around to the empty rooms so we could pick what we liked. I would recommend the cosy rooms by the garden at the back. Lynne was so nice and helpful to us.... More

We were delighted with our stay at Bridgewater. The genuine concern that Lynne and Pat show for every guest's wellbeing and enjoyment of their time in Knysna is the key. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The Bridgewater is extremely well-located on the lagoon near to the centre of the town and the waterfront. True it is on the... More

we stayed here for 2 nights. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. On arrival the ladies who own the guest house provided maps and showed us places to go. So helpful. There is a laundry service (for a small fee ) which is really useful and a little help yourself bar pay later which is extensive. Great... More

I stayed one night in this B&B and it was lovely! It is ran by two wonderful women who always try to help you to take the most out of Knysna. The place is very nice and the rooms are beautiful. The breakfast is also good and you can park your car inside!
