About Bridgewater B&B

Bridgewater B&B is an owner-managed guest house offering friendly, relaxed, homely hospitality. It is conveniently situated on the main road, opposite the lagoon with magnificent views, and is an easy 10 minute walk from town centre, restaurants, ferries, and the Knysna Quays Waterfront.

Comfortable rooms are either lagoon-facing or lead off a quiet garden courtyard - most have outside entrances.


The eight comfortable bedrooms are all en-suite, and well equipped with TV (MNet, shared DSTV), tea/coffee facilities, ceiling fans, heaters, and hot water bottles for winter, hairdryers, adaptors, safes and Wi-Fi.

Lagoon-facing rooms have lovely views, while those leading off the garden courtyard behind the main building are quiet. Each room has outdoor seating on a balcony or patio. Ashtrays are provided for outdoor smoking only.

Please note:
All rooms are non-smoking. There are six rooms with double or twin beds, and two family rooms with double and single beds. Children welcome. No pets.


Enjoy a generous breakfast while watching the boats come and go on the lagoon. A health and/or full English breakfast is served in the breakfast room which has a magnificent view from 07h00 to 09h30.


There is plenty of space to relax in the garden or recline around the swimming pool. Browse through guide books on the area or magazines in the guest lounge. The more energetic are welcome to use our canoes - we are literally a stone’s throw from the water’s edge.

Also available are a central telephone / fax, ADSL internet access (Wi-Fi and workstation), laundry service, hospitality fridge, a fridge for guests’ use, and restaurant menus for perusal. We will gladly make dinner reservations – a wide range of excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance. Parking is on the premises.

Location & Attractions

Your hosts have extensive first hand knowledge of the area to help you plan a very worthwhile tour of the Garden Route. Beautiful beaches and golf courses boasting spectacular scenery within a 15 minute drive.
