We absolutely love this place. Lynne was very helpful to assist us in our sightseeing expeditions. Nice room for our family, just right. Lovely garden where the kids could play. I would've loved to enjoy the swimming pool but the July winter was just too freezing! I highly recommend them! Oh, and my son even got a special breakfast treat... More

Bridgewater B&B is run by the most wonderful hosts, Pat & Lynn who were integral in making our stay enjoyable. The breakfast is hearty and served to taste, the rooms are very clean with soft, plush, percale white linen with oxford borders that one would expect at a 4-star establishment. Pat & Lynn were very knowledgeable of the area and... More

We were welcomed warmly and was advised very thoroughly on where to go, what to eat and where to play (The brilliant ladies even have a hand-drawn map). We stayed for 3 days over Easter. The B&B is 5 min's walk to the waterfront. The breakfast was wonderful, dining room has a really good view of the lagoon. We were... More

Bridgewater B&B is a beautifully presented and well kept home. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Lynne was very helpful when we arrived, as we only had a limited time in Knysna she was able to give us lots of useful tips and point us in the right directions to all the best sights. The B&B is located conveniently... More

You would be very hard pressed indeed to find two better hosts than Lynne and Pat. Their guesthouse is a model of taste and old fashioned design. Immaculately kept, both house and garden. True, it's right beside the busy N2, but we had the ground floor room 8 nearest the road and with the windows closed at night noise was... More

Our second stay with Pat & Lynn and hopefully not our last! They couldn't be more helpful with advice on where to go, where to eat, booking restaurants and taxis,etc. The location is excellent as you can safely walk into and out of the harbour area at night. If there is a downside it is that the main road (N2)... More

My wife and I stayed at Bridgewater whilst touring the garden route. We stayed for three nights. Our room was clean and tidy, but a little on the small side. The hotel is run by two ladies, Lyn and Pat, who could not have been more helpful during our stay there. They freely offerred advice on local amenities, restaurants etc.... More

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.
