This was a two night stay to prepare for the Knysna Bosmarathon. The accommodation and service were five star class. A visit to the Bell restaurant is a must. Breakfast looking down the Lagoon is breathtaking. Neat, clean and comfortable.

Overlooking Knysna's lagoon, historic Belvidere Manor built in 1849, is situated in landscaped gardens and offers spacious accommodation in 28 serviced cottages, each with comfortable lounge, a full kitchen and 1, 2 ...More or 3 en-suite double bedrooms. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace of Belvidere House, then relax poolside, take a boat trip, walk forest trails or pristine beaches, all a short drive away.

We offer preferential golf rates at Simola & Pezula clubs and a pretty garden wedding venue for up to 60 guests. Less
