We had wonderful 2 days at Bridgewater Manor in Knysna. The room was really big, clean and nicely decorated and with an own terrace. The host always tried to satisfy our individual breakfast requests. Really nothing to complain about.

We stayed for three nights and stayed in two rooms (we decided to get to there a day early than booked) both rooms were a lovely size and well decorated. The second bedroom was facing the lagoon and just beautiful. The n2 is below you (you cannot see it) and don't worry about the noise... We live in a village and in the evening there is more traffic coming through our road than that which you can hear on the n2!

You have access to the lounge where there are games (we played scrabble whilst drinking from the honesty bar), magazine and music

Host is just lovely

We had three rooms and every one was absolutely satisfying and beautiful. The manager is lovely and exerted, arranged delicious dinner sites and was helpful. The guest house is well-kept, clean and has fantastic gardens and a nice pool. Everything without a spot! Amazing!

Great views from our room (lagoon facing), large room, lovely house, too cold in October to use the pool but it looked lovely, Good price, Friendly helpfull staff suggested the trip to Featherbed Nature reserve which was worth every penny.

Vee was the hostess with the mostest. We only booked two hours prior to arriving but everything was in place when we arrived. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite and were blown away by the quality of the room and the breathtaking view overlooking the lagoon. It's a shame we only stayed one night as we could have happily called this place home for a couple of days or more.

We would definitely stay there again.

It is amazing the published price you get in such a beautiful place! My rooms was an exterior one overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. It was well fitted with a kitchenette and a very good bathroom inclusive of a bath tube and also a terrace
The views are breathtaking! Immaculate conditions of all rooms. The eating room was very well decorated and the breakfast was superb. Helen was a great host and felt really like at home. She provided me a few lifts to town. Absolutely recommendable and of course when I come back to South Africa Bridgewater Manor will be my favorite destination.
