Belvidere Manor makes an excellent base for exploring the Knysna area. However, the service, while normally good, can occasionally be erratic.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Belvidere has a picturesque setting, with sweeping views of Knysna Lagoon, and is situated along South Africa's beautiful Garden Route.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Twenty-eight individual cottages are set around the grounds, some looking over the garden and some over the lagoon. Each cottage has a comfortable lounge, a kitchen, a wide outside veranda, and one, two or three double rooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. The hotel also has a large swimming pool, its own restaurant, and a pub where guests can enjoy a cooling drink and a light snack.
There are some wonderful sandy beaches nearby where guests can swim, sunbathe or stroll. Canoe in the lagoon or up the river mouth, walk or hike in Knysna Forest, cycle, play golf, cruise out to Knysna Heads, take a boat across to Featherbed Nature Reserve, visit Knysna Elephant Park, Monkey Jungle, Birds of Eden… the list is endless!
