the host was lovely and did everything she could to make our stay the best possible. We booked a standard room, but as the honeymoon suite was available she moved us in their for no cost. this was a lovely room, and the views out on the water were stunning. Knysna has a nice waterfront area with a few good restaurants.

Great place to stay in Knysna. Central, comfortable, friendly - all the nice words one can think of to describe a Guest House that is well worth a visit. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, staff is friendly (Vee is the best!!), breakfast is great, property is safe and secure.

Room Tip: All rooms looked great (we stuck our noses into the rooms with open doors). All rooms have little ve...

We had booked the honeymoon suite and found it a very comfortable and spacious room with an excellent view. The room is very clean and neat with a comfortable bed and good linen. We were there during a couple of colder days and found the room a bit cold as it only had a single wall heater, but the beds did have some heated blankets which provided the warmth we were seeking. The host, Vee, really makes you feel welcome and will go the extra mile to help you out with whatever you need. We definitely felt relaxed and well taken care off throughout our stay.

Bridgewater Manor is a lovely place to stay in Knysna. Our host Vee was truly fantastic - welcoming us, helping to book activities, genial, warm and extremely friendly. The guest house is extremely homely - our room looked over the lagoon, it was spacious and the bathroom was fantastic. As British gay travellers you can often feel vulnerable in some places where you stay, but our welcome at Bridgewater Manor and the way we were looked after was brilliant and very warm - highly recommended. Good value too.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks over the lagoon on the top floor.

Stayed here with my family in Feb for just one night to break our journey from Cape Town to Addo.
Knysna is a beautiful area.
The property is in a quiet area elevated looking out over the lagoon with great views.
We arrived a little late but Vee organized a restaurant for us very quickly along with a taxi with a very nice and knowledgeable taxi driver who walked us right to the restaurant door.
The restaurant was 34 South on the waterfront and we had a great meal very reasonable priced.
The rooms were very nice and comfortable, very clean and with everything you could want. Breakfast was good and efficiently organized by Vee and we set off for Addo refreshed and relaxed.
I can highly recommend this lovely place to stay and hopefully we will be back sometime to explore more of what Knysna has to offer.

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
