One is so often disappointed when making an online booking. This is definitely not the case. Wonderful room with the most fantastic view over the lagoon. Beautiful gardens and pool. Friendly service with great breakfast and all the amenities one would expect from a four star establishment, like free wifi etc.

Charming, homey and peaceful at first and last glance. Excellent and accommodating hostesses. Staying in the inner room provided everything we needed for the two day park in Knysna. Thank you so much for taking us in, you will surely see us in future as there is now no way anything else could compare.

We stayed just 1 night but it was a good location for our journey along the Garden Route. We were welcomed and shown to our rooms. They were very clean and comfortable yet traditional and could perhaps do with an update and a lick of paint. The breakfast was lovely and we were well looked after. The location is good... More

Vi was very welcoming and eager to sort out where you would eat and what you should do. Breakfast was fine although I do have an issue with basic sliced bread. Our room overlooked the lagoon but was not private as others guests could see in if on the terrace which left us having to draw the curtains every time... More

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.
