Very good 8.0
Great visit with old friends
We had friends visiting from Europe and we thought that Belvidere Manor would be a perfect base to explore Knysna and surrounds. My wife and i spent a weekend there in June and we enjoyed it so much that we planned a second trip. Everything was as we expected. The rooms are well laid out, very comfortable. Service from ever busy Jeffrey and his was exceptional. Whether we were just relaxing over a G&T enjoying the view of the lagoon or breakfasting on the terrace, we could find no faults. We will definitely visit again

weekend break
A weekend in mid winter, logs and firelighters were brought so that we could have an open fire in the evening. The room is very well laid out and comfortable. Wi Fi ok. Bit disappointing that the restaurant wasn't open as it is winter but we were not told when we booked and it is a fair drive into Knysna for dinner which we didn't really want. The staff were very attentive and efficient. The views over the lagoon are splendid

Peaceful in paradise
The estate is situated in a setting like paradise. It is safe and secluded with beautiful vistas and safe places to walk and cycle. The bird life is extraordinary. Most pristine estate. Calm and peaceful.

Beautiful Hotel
We were blown away by this beautiful place. I wish we had booked in for a longer stay rather than just passing through. We will be back.
