You have the feeling the staff are left to run everything on their own. When you pay such an amount of money you would expect the staff to also be fitted to their best attire to attend to the guests, it looks like that is not important for the owners wherever they are.

We visited Belvidere Manor while on a two week visit to the Garden Route South Africa and of all the places we visited this was a total joy. From excellent food, superb service and beautiful location and facilities it will be a place we will return to. The cottage units are home from home and are very well equipped and...

We stayed two nights. Lovely setting overlooking the water. Really enjoyed the Bell Pub on site for casual meals. Nice waterfront area in town and walk along shoreline. Breakfasts were very good. Only negative was the cottage we stayed in which was in need of renovation. Cottages are largely privately owned and rented out by management. Don't rent cottage One...

A lovely place for tea and scones and a pub lunch in the historic Bell Tavern. Historic well maintained buildings and beautiful gardens A gem outside Knysna. Beautiful view of Knysna from opposite side of the lagoon. A must on the way to Brenton on Sea.

Being of British decent the name had me expecting a large stately manor home yet what I discovered was historical Cape style cottages in spacious grounds with views over the lagoon. There is a small manor house which houses the reception and restaurant overlooking the gardens and swimming pool, even a quirky old pub ‘The Bell’ serving award winning cuisine...

A lovely lagoon view, old world romantic feel and friendly staff. A pub that is almost as old as the town it's self..... all around this is a great self-catering holiday option. Amazing pool area and literally a stone thrown from the lagoon it's self with great town views ......

We have just returned form a 4 night stay in one of Garden classic cottages which provided us with a 3 bedroomed cottage fully equipped and a short walk to all amenities and breakfast. The accommodation is very good and provides a superb setting to enjoy the area and on site service is excellent. The site is an established housing...

The Belvidere Manor staff greet you like long lost family. They are a real credit to the place. The bungalow we had was facing the lagoon with the most wonderful view from the veranda. We had a 2 bed cottage and it was very clean and provided very comfortable accommodation. Some areas had been modernised, like the second bedroom ensuite....
