This owner-managed guest house offers friendly, relaxed, homely hospitality. It is conveniently situated across the road from the lagoon with magnificent views, and is an easy ten minute walk from town centre, restaurants, ferries, steam train and the Knysna Quays Waterfront.
Bridgewater is an ideal base for a visit to Knysna - for business or pleasure. Comfortable rooms are either lagoon-facing or lead off a quiet garden courtyard behind the main building. Your hosts have extensive first-hand knowledge of the area to help you plan a very worthwhile tour of the Garden Route. Beautiful beaches , indigenous forests , spectacular Pezula and Simola golf courses , wonderful day walks , and close encounters with most of Africa's Big Five all lie within a 30 minute drive . The Wilderness , Nature's Valley , the Tsitsikamma National Park , and Oudtshoorn with the Cango Caves are an easy day trip .
There are eight comfortable en suite rooms - lagoon facing with lovely views or quiet courtyard.
There are two family rooms - the others have double or twin beds. The rooms are serviced daily, and have tea/coffee facilities, TV (MNet, shared DSTV), ceiling fans, heaters, hairdriers and safes. Most have outside entrances.
PLEASE NOTE : All rooms are NON-SMOKING
A substantial breakfast is served in the dining room between 07h00 and 09h30 - health and/or full English. Enjoy the wonderful view across the lagoon towards the Heads, and watch the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe on its morning crossing of the bridge. (Currently not operational due to flood damage.)
There is plenty of space to relax in the garden or recline around the swimming pool. The more energetic are welcome to use our canoes - we are literally a stone's throw from the water's edge.
A central telephone / fax system , ADSL internet access , laundry service , a guest lounge , hospitality fridge , and a fridge for guests' use are available . We will gladly make your dinner reservations - a wide range of excellent restaurants are within walking distance
