My partner Sue and I stayed here in late March for two nights. First off, what a great view ! The Belvidere Manor Estate overlooks the lagoon and offers stunning views. We stayed in cottage number 2 and what a lovely place to stay. All the comforts of home, effectively your own house to stay in. Usefully the room is serviced every morning and fresh milk placed in the fridge for Tea and coffee, which is also provided.
Spacious bathroom with bath and shower . Spacious kitchen with small hob / oven if you wanted to eat in. Why on earth you would want to eat in though i don't know ! There is the most wonderful little Pub on site that serves the most delicious food. I had, possibly the best steak i have ever tasted at the pub, so i heartily recommend eating at the Pub. The fact that the restaurant is on site removes the problem of having to travel for your evening meal.
Breakfast was also equally delicious and we found ourselves skipping lunch, still full from our "full english" . The breakfast waiter was a most efficient chap with a great character.Super, fresh!
Knysna is a great stop over on the garden route , well placed for many attractions. We visited Monkey Land a free roaming monkey park and Tenwika a place to see big cat's up close. We also visited the Wilderness national park which is also worth a visit.
All in all a great place to stay.
