Stayed overnight on route to Port Elizabeth, what an amazing evening, Pat met us on arrival and made sure we were comfortable. She also was very concerned that we knew where to go and what to do, maps were offered and a quick rundown of the area followed. Breakfast the next morning was great and way more than I would...

Stayed overnight when visiting from Dubai. Great location in walking distance of most local attractions. Wonderful rooms and amenities and ran by lovely staff who are happy to help you on your journey or merely talk about life. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay here for one night. The owners were extremely helpful - taking time to help us fully plan our itinerary for the next days including with hand drawn maps! The room was very nice with a view over the bay, comfortable and cosy. Breakfast was very nice also. Overall a very good experience, good value, and...

We were initially very skeptical of booking a B&B in South Africa. But Lynn and Pat have a great place in Bridgewater B&B. The name of the place comes from the fact that it is overlooking the Knysna rail bridge (Not in use anymore and you can walk on it) and the Knysna lagoon i.e. water. The property is very...

We absolutely love this place. Lynne was very helpful to assist us in our sightseeing expeditions. Nice room for our family, just right. Lovely garden where the kids could play. I would've loved to enjoy the swimming pool but the July winter was just too freezing! I highly recommend them! Oh, and my son even got a special breakfast treat...

Bridgewater B&B is run by the most wonderful hosts, Pat & Lynn who were integral in making our stay enjoyable. The breakfast is hearty and served to taste, the rooms are very clean with soft, plush, percale white linen with oxford borders that one would expect at a 4-star establishment. Pat & Lynn were very knowledgeable of the area and...

We were welcomed warmly and was advised very thoroughly on where to go, what to eat and where to play (The brilliant ladies even have a hand-drawn map). We stayed for 3 days over Easter. The B&B is 5 min's walk to the waterfront. The breakfast was wonderful, dining room has a really good view of the lagoon. We were...

Bridgewater B&B is a beautifully presented and well kept home. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Lynne was very helpful when we arrived, as we only had a limited time in Knysna she was able to give us lots of useful tips and point us in the right directions to all the best sights. The B&B is located conveniently...

You would be very hard pressed indeed to find two better hosts than Lynne and Pat. Their guesthouse is a model of taste and old fashioned design. Immaculately kept, both house and garden. True, it's right beside the busy N2, but we had the ground floor room 8 nearest the road and with the windows closed at night noise was...
