Excellent in every way. Large well equipped bedroom with a fantastic view of the lagoon. Delicious breakfast with juice, fruit and a choice of cooked items. Lots of toast, jam cheese and meats. A delightful touch when we returned in the evening was a slate in our room with two glasses of port and small shortbread biscuits. Most welcoming host...

We were fortunate enough to be able to make two stops at Bridgewater Manor on our holiday in January! A beautifully decorated B&B with a wonderfully friendly welcome - Cornell, Kevin, Adelle, Vee and the rest of the team. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the view from the balcony amazing - directly over the lagoon and The Heads. Unfortunately...

I don't know where to start writing this review - we spent 2 weeks in Cape Town and driving along the Garden Route. Every hotel we stayed in was amazing but this one was head and shoulders above the rest in terms of service. There were so many little touches that the owners did that made us feel so special...

We had the best getaway. The room was neat and clean and the turn down service with treats at night was a bonus. Kevin and Cornell were very pleasant and assisted our "what-to-do" in Knysna planning. They even made reservations on our behalf. We will definitively be back. Oh my goodness, the breakfast was AMAZING! Thank you!

We had a lovely stay at Bridgewater Manor: a beautifully decorated house, spacious rooms, a magnificient view from the terasse and a friendly host that adviced us to a restaurant with a yummy fish. A real holiday feeling. I wish that we had stayed longer than two nights.

We had a fabulous stay at the Bridgwater Manor, Kevin and Cornelia were fantastic, laid back hosts and could not do enough for us. Very knowledgeable of the local area.

Let me begin by mentioning that this property has new owners (4 months), Kevin and Cornell. I would therefore advise that you read only recent reviews. The property is a beautiful building set slightly up the hill overlooking Knysna Bay, the lagoon and the heads. Upon our arrival we were met by the housekeeper (Odell - sorry about the spelling)....
