Very good location. Easy walking distance to downtown. Host was very helpful and made good recommendations for dinner locations. Wished we had stayed a few more nights. Great value for money. One of the only accommodations that did not gouge us during World Cup 2010.

We thought Bridgewater B&B was amazing, the hospitality and the service equal to wonderful. Very helping when it comes to finding extraordinary things to do in Knysna and not only there, also along Garden Route. The breakfast gave us always a very good start on our days, we loved our rooms and felt very comfortable. Thank you again! Ps. Our kids loved the muffins!

I stayed at quite a few B&B's and I have to say. This was the most friendly establishment. Great value for money. Enjoyed the real home away from home feeling even though you don't claim this status. I will call again.
