The house, the room and the pool area are wonderful. From our balcony we had a fantastic view over the Knysna lagune. Unfortunately at night you can hear the noise from the N2, especially the trucks are very noisy. Apart from the noise we can fully recommend this B&B

Amazing place to stay, we couldn't have asked for more! Vee the host offers a wonderful experience, is a great source of knowledge and super helpful. Room was immaculate with breathtaking views. We loved ever minute and didn't want to leave. Couldn't recommend highly enough and we would definitely hope to return in the future.

Room Tip: Pay for a lagoon view, it's worth it!

Perfect villa, surrounded by trees and flowers in a vey nice area of Knysna, close to everything. Absolutely lovely, with an excellent dining room, big living room. My own room was perfect, big and modern, plus with a very nice bathroom. All very stylish and elegant. The garden below the house is also wonderful, and in the middle of it is a swimming pool, nice and clean, and larger than usual in this kind of places. The view from my room was amazing. The breakfast was served by Vee who is in charge of the whole villa, very nice and friendly person. It was really a great pleasure to stay there. If there is anything negative - the road is rather close and noise can be heard... Highly recommended!

This is a very nice place to stay and and is within walking distance of the town. The rooms have wonderful views of the lagoon. We had the studio room which was nicely decorated and very clean. We enjoyed our 2 night stay very much and found Vee to be a warm and welcoming hostess.

What a fabulous welcome we got from 'Vee' when we arrived after a long drive from Hermanus. Bridgewater Manor is situated in beautiful grounds overlooking Knysna Bay.
Vee provided fabulous breakfasts and recommended some wonderful restaurants and a Taxi to take us to and from the eatery at night.
Rooms were very comfortable with good amenities.
I would highly recommend this as a peacful place to stay in Knysna

Lovely guest house situated in a good sot in Knysna. The manager Vee is very helpful and will go the extra mile to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Beautiful breakfast and great amenities in the room. Would thoroughly recommend

Bridgewater Manor is just a beautiful place to stay! Our room was spacious and felt quite luxurious, even though I guess ours was not one of the best in the manor since it was facing the garden. The manager, Vee, made us feel welcome and gave us some good restaurant recommendations. She told us on the night we arrived that they have a great breakfast, and I have to say she was correct! There is a pool in the garden, but as it was quite cold when we were there we never used it.
