One couldn't ask for a lovelier place to stay. Our hosts were hospitable and could not do enough for us. The accommodations were comfortable,charming and upscale. The whole lodging reeks of taste and style. The views are amazing and even the garden room was delightful. By the way the breakfasts were terrific.

The view from the verandah of this 5 star guest house is truly spectacular ... the vista across the lagoon perfectly frames the Heads in the distance and is best enjoyed with a glass of wine in hand ... rooms are spotless, beds are super comfortable and the breakfast out of this world !

We spent three nights at the Bridgewater Manor which is an absolutely recommendable place to stay. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful and the changes they have made in the short time they own the house are remarkable.

Although most hosts of B&B on the garden Route are very welcoming and friendly-it got topped here! The location and house reminds more of a private hideaway than a classic B&B. Rooms set up very...
