We first stayed here in the summer of 2013 (Jan/Feb) for a few nights and thought it would deserve another visit, as it's a good centre for touring the area around Knysna and Sedgefield. The guesthouse is by the main N2 road facing the lagoon, on the western side of Knysna. The main house is set back from the road...

Our garden rooms were lovely with a private sitting area in the courtyard. The residents lounge was...

This guest house, has a nice dinning and sitting room. the rooms were well sized and had everything you needed, but would highly recommend you don't stay in the up stairs front rooms as the road noise was very bad and disrupted our sleep. People in the down stairs and back rooms said the noise wasn't too bad. Breakfast was...

Lynne was so nice and helpful to us....

We were delighted with our stay at Bridgewater. The genuine concern that Lynne and Pat show for every guest's wellbeing and enjoyment of their time in Knysna is the key. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The Bridgewater is extremely well-located on the lagoon near to the centre of the town and the waterfront. True it is on the...

we stayed here for 2 nights. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. On arrival the ladies who own the guest house provided maps and showed us places to go. So helpful. There is a laundry service (for a small fee ) which is really useful and a little help yourself bar pay later which is extensive. Great...

I stayed one night in this B&B and it was lovely! It is ran by two wonderful women who always try to help you to take the most out of Knysna. The place is very nice and the rooms are beautiful. The breakfast is also good and you can park your car inside!

The staff was very freindly. the room was more than what we expected, very neat and the view was beautiful. this place was right accross from the Lagoon and we could walk to the water front. absolutely beautiful place. The breakfast was so filling that our next meal was only early supper.
