This was our fourth visit to Bridgewater Manor. Last year, it was taken over by a lovely couple called Kevin and Cornell who are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble, breakfast are always a pleasure and the food is good and plentiful. Our room had a lovely view from the balcony of Knysna Lagoon and was always clean...

We stayed 1 night only which basically didn't really do justice: Neither do this lovely guesthoue nor to nice Knysna. However, the house is so nicely furnished, the hospitality of Cornell and Kevin is coming straight from the heart! What do you need more? May be a little more distance to the mainroad?

Kevin and Cornell were great hosts and it was a real pleasure in stay in their beautiful home. Location very good with stunning views over the lagoon, although traffic slightly noisy at times, it wasn't enough to concern us. Good knowledge of the area with excellent recommendations regarding restaurants and boat trips, and a delicious breakfast. We would certainly recommend...
