Great impression on arrival. Wonderful hosts and accommodation and great breakfasts. Hard to find fault with this address. Room just lovely. Port and chocolate every night left in our room; we thought it was going to be first night only!! Fantastic location!

Absolutely loved this Guesthouse, it was by far the best one we stayed in on our trip. Kevin & Cornell are excellent hosts and we felt so at home.

A big thank you to Kevin, Cornel and Adelle they go the extra mile to make your stay special. Lovely breakfast, spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the lovely private pool and they booked golf, restaurants, and advised us on the best places to visit in the area.

From the moment one enters the world of Bridgewater Manor, one is made to feel special. The home is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Our room was perfectly appointed, and the view over the lagoon was beautiful. Our hosts were helpful about places to eat, and our beds were turned down on our return. How delightful to find cookies and port...

We stopped in Knysna for only 1 night on our garden route drive, but we really regretted not spending longer here, after a wonderful stay in Kevin & Cornell's beautiful Bridgewater Manor guest house. Even though we booked through Agoda and had never met the hosts before, we were greeted like old friends from the minute we entered the property....

What a fantastic review- thank you. Dr "Woody"Meltzer, the vet about whom you write, was an icon in his field and Cornell is justifiably proud of him, her father. We are touched that speaking of him and his passion led you to visit the center that cares for these magnnificent animals. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting and chatting to you and...

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.
