Situated on South Africa’s scenic Garden Route in the popular lagoonside town of Knysna, Belvidere Manor offers comfortable self-catering accommodation in single- and double-storey freestanding cottages, a range of delicious dining experiences and breathtaking natural surroundings. Built in 1849, the historic Manor House is an exquisite example of Cape Georgian architecture, and the quaint on-site pub, The Bell Tavern, is a restored farm building. The Manor House, tavern and cottages are surrounded by two hectares of landscaped gardens, set within the secluded Belvidere Estate, which is a leafy suburb of Knysna. From the terrace of the Manor House, there are unrivalled views across the lawns and swimming pool to the lagoon.

We really liked our stay at Belvidere- lucky that we found this beautiful. Getting up in the morning and sitting in the evenings on the porch with the great view over the bay was just wonderful. We enjoyed the fine pool for swimming… The choice of breakfasts provided by the very friendly staff was superb. Belvidere is a great base to explore the highlights on the Garden route. We will surely recommend it to our friends! Rudi

The cottage was very clean and well equipped. It is well situated around a lawn with swimmingpool. Personnel is very polite and helpful. Breakfast is outstanding. Uber cost to reach Knysna center are comparatively high (ca. 160 ZAR)

The sound of the Orioles and Loeries at breakfast in the morning. The walks in the forested greenbelts and through the surrounding garden suburb. The little Bell pub. The wonderful staff and guests! I love this special place.

We stayed at the Lagoon Side cottages and were pleasantly surprised at just how well equiped our cottage (No. 12) was kitted out. Everything we needed - kitchen well equiped, lovely lounge/dining area, very comfortable beds and cottage nice and clean (although carpets and headboard could do with a bit of a spruce up). We absolutely loved every minute of our stay and have already booked for next year. Pleasant staff (especially Mr Lovely Dovely!) The Bell pub has some good food and a lovely vibe. So peaceful and quiet there and there are some lovely walks in the area. Looking forward to our stay next year!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Well equipped cottage in the most beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful, beautiful walks, 6km to the beach - short drive down the road. Loved the charm history and charm of The Bell pub and manor house.

A line of charming Victorian cottages overlooks the lagoon in a pretty spectacular setting. Cottages are very well equipped - except the toaster oven, hot plate and microwave did not work despite heroic efforts on our part. A lovely hot breakfast is provided - if you don’t give up waiting for it. We waited 45 minutes and eventually went and asked. The server said: You didn’t get it yet? She then raced off and returned 5 minutes later with the breakfast which had clearly been hastily nuked. We gave up on getting coffee. I went and served myself but it was unfortunately cold. This is a beautiful spot but bad service and essential things that don’t work, spoils the experience.

We had a very needed relaxing stay at the Belvidere Manor recently. The staff were superb, the accommodation excellent, food delicious and surroundings quiet and peaceful. It is a wonderful place to go to if you want to be out of the crowds but still close to the shops if you need them.

Lovely comfortable cottage above the lagoon with fantastic views. Very spacious and clean, with self catering possible in the well equipped kitchen. Staff were all great and the Bell Inn only a few metres away for lunch or dinner. Well recommended.
