“Lovely Place to Stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

We spent 2 nights here in March whilst doing the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We had a lovely garden room with its own little courtyard. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. There was a good choice for breakfast and the breakfast room was very light and airy overlooking the garden. The restaurants at the waterfront were 15 minutes walk away and good value. There is plenty to see and do in the area and our hosts were a fountain of knowledge on this. We had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend staying here. Thank you ladies. Karen and Graham.

We stayed here in a family room for one night on our road trip to Cape Town. Very friendly helpful staff, lovely clean rooms and a great breakfast. Our host also took time to help us select a restaurant to dine in and negotiated a table for us, as it was short notice on valentines day. If we head to Knysna again, this is where we will be staying. Great value for money also!

We love our two night stay, here. On arrival, we were offered a room in the garden, as we had booked a lagoon view room but the owner was worried about road noise affecting our sleep. We chose to stick with the lagoon view. Yes, the road was between us and the lagoon and yes, there was traffic noise but we didn't mind. If you do mind, I suggest you book one of the pretty rooms at the back of the property. Our room was bright and cheerful, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. It's an easy walk to the waterfront from the B&B. All of Knysna is easily accessible from here. Breakfast was lovely, with plenty of fresh fruit salad, dried fruit salad, cereals, yoghurt and cooked options. There's a large fridge for guest use and a very well stocked drinks fridge/ honesty bar at very fair prices. We loved having a drink on our balcony in the evening sun. Pool is fine for a dip, but if you want a long swim, head for the beach at Leisure Isle.
We would recommend this B&B and would stay again. The ladies who run it are lovely, friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet. Lagoon view rooms will have a lot of traffic noise, so don't book o...

We stayed 2 nights in that B&B and we had a great time! We had the choice of a room, which I thought was very kind. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hosts were so helpful and their recommendation for the area was spot on! The breakfast was very tasty and the staff were very helpful and devoted. What can you ask for more? Thank you for making our stay in Knysna delightful!

We have been traveling the world for a number of years and this B & B is probably the best we have experienced in every respect.

The hospitality, the tourist information, the breakfast & the room were more than excellent and Kynsna is a lovely location to stop along the Garden Route.

Room Tip: We recommend room No 1. Close to the kitchen and lovely patio.

We have been staying at this B&B over a number of years now and always look forward to our next visit there !
Staying at Bridgewater is like being at home – its comfortable , spotlessly clean , well run and reasonably priced and , above all, the owners are excellent and make you feel so welcome and they are extremely knowledgeable about the area etc.
The rooms are well equipped and when staying there in the summer months the swimming pool is a delight , and a must for me !
In my opinion one of the most tranquil and lovely views of Knysna is sitting at the breakfast table looking onto the garden , pool and lagoon in the background.
We cannot recommend this B&B more highly and would not consider staying anywhere else in Knysna .

Room Tip: We enjoy all the rooms but No 1 is our current favourite !
