About Belvidere Manor
In the hamlet of Belvidere, close to Knysna overlooking the lagoon, lies the old manor house, Belvidere House, built in 1849. This Georgian house is now the reception of Belvidere Manor Hotel, a beautiful property offering the traveler a relaxed and tranquil holiday.
Guests are accommodated in individual whitewashed cottages situated in park-like gardens with stunning views overlooking Knysna’s lagoon.
Each single or two storey cottage offers a wide airy veranda, a spacious living room with comfortable sofas, fireplace, satellite television and DVD player, a fully equipped kitchen and a choice of one, two or three en-suite double bedrooms.
Breakfast & Dining
Begin the day with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sparkling lagoon. In the evening, dine at Caroline’s bistro, named after the first mistress of Belvidere, where a table d’hôte menu is offered each evening in the gracious dining-rooms or on the verandah.
Belvidere Manor is popular not only for its relaxed and tranquil atmosphere but for its feeling of home away from home. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own cottage, but with the advantages of personal service and superb cuisine.
A sparkling swimming pool, tennis courts and boat trips may add to the fun, but a good book, log fire and a glass of wine is often all that is required.
Relax poolside, take a walk and explore the lagoon or play one of the internationally acclaimed local golf courses. We offer preferred rates at both Pezula and Simola courses.
The Duthie Room hosts our executive conference facility and is suitable for small intimate 'think tanks' and brainstorming sessions, to larger meetings for up to 50 delegates.
Belvidere Manor also offers a delightful garden wedding venue with a gazebo overlooking the lagoon, and various reception options for up to 80 guests. Packages are tailor-made and personally handled.
