Bridgewater is conveniently located and a perfectly comfortable B&B! Some rooms only have a shower, but most have a bath and all have TV's with DSTV and tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate. Our room faced the main road, but noise wasn't an issue at all and the Waterfront is within walking distance -... More

We were excited about staying at Bridgewater B&B and the visit lived up to its expectations!! We travel extensively for business but this time, it was a leisure trip. The B&B is well located. It's approximately a 2-3 minute drive into town and a 10 minute walk (all flat surfaces) to the waterfront. The place overlooks the lagoon, which is... More

Coming from the travel industry, I must say Bridgewater was the best choice for our holidays in the Garden Route. Rooms are beautiful in an English Style and super comfortable. Amazing and friendly service, really homy. Yummy and complete breakfast, used to be the best part of the day. And the location is perfect, close to the waterfront and on... More

We returned to Bridgewater again this year, and as always Lyn and Pat were kindness itself. They always spare time from their busy schedule to talk to us and we learn much about South Africa. We had the upstairs front bedroom which had a lovely balcony and a view over the lagoon. Breakfast was everything you could ever wish for... More

Stayed one night at Bridgewater. We had a courtyard facing twin room that was spacious and elegantly furnished. We encountered no problems of traffic noise from the N2 as mentioned in some reviews. The courtyard had outdoor seating and there was free wifi and parking. The breakfast was sumptuous and elaborate. The rooms do not have air conditioning so it... More

Great little B&B! Great location near the lagoon with the knysna waterfront restaurants and shops within easy walking distance so that you can park your car securely within the B&B grounds and walk. A very smoothly run B&B. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast was delicious! People running the show are very gracious hosts. There's a lovely pool in the... More

Stayed a couple of nights here. Room very clean. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast good. If ever passing through Knysna again would definitely stay here. Also close to restaurants on Harbour front (10 min walk). Knysna great little town.
