We spent three nights in one of the Lagoon Deluxe cottages and were completely satisfied. The facility / site is really beautiful and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was tasty. One night we ate at the "The Bell Tavern" which was good, too.

Great service, lovely landscaped with views of the lagoon and a very interesting historical site. the neighborhood is also well worth a morning walk or late afternoon stroll. Highly recommended for a visit to this part of the world.

We stayed in one of the self catering cottages while friends of mine were married at the Manor over the weekend. Everything we could have possibly needed was there: great views and garden, immaculate pool, friendly staff. Would go back in a heartbeat!

This lodging was picked by our travel agent. It has a beautiful setting and view, but should offer shuttle service into town for those traveling without a car (we had a driver leave us here, and another driver picked us up for our tour of the Garden Route). Since not convenient to go into town, we ate at Belvedere, but...

This hotel is in a lovely situation over looking the lagoon, a short drive from Knysna centre. The cottages are well equipped and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pub on the grounds is worth a visit. The food is very good at the pub, we didn't try the restaurant.

It's a place that once you've been there it lures you back time and again with beautiful memories. The staff is so welcoming and remembers you even after a year or 2 absence. We love Belvidere as we love our own home.

Departing beautiful Belvidere Manor was hard. Its never easy when you have just experienced amazing and friendly staff who practise and live service par excellence. Set in a beautiful garden only 6 kms from Knysna central, our comfortable cottage was equipped with modcons for self catering if you so desire. Who doesn't enjoy percale linen on your bed?

Our third time back at Belvidere Manor. It is the most wonderful place to relax and recharge with great food and plenty to see and do. Don't forget to visit the beautiful Belvidere Church and Wild Oats market on Saturday mornings.

Where do I start: From the moment we arrived we felt as welcome as old friends. The house we received was everything we can imagine. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large lounge dining area and a lovely kitchen. Outside was under-cover parking for our car, enclosed section for laundry and a large terrace. It is also close to all the best...
