Situated on South Africa’s famed Garden Route in the seaside town of Knysna, Belvidere Manor offers comfortable four-star accommodation, a range of delicious dining experiences and breath-taking natural surroundings. Built in 1849, the Manor House is an exquisite example of historic Cape Georgian architecture and since its opening in 1989, the hotel has grown to offer 34 free-standing cottages set beside the Knysna Lagoon. The Bell Tavern, Knysna’s smallest pub serves delicious meals al fresco or by the cosy wood burning stove as well as a wide variety of wines, beers and spirits.
Whether you’re a nature lover, adrenaline junkie, golfing enthusiast or simply looking for a family-friendly and fun-filled holiday, Knysna offers an unparalleled range of activities and special places to enjoy. Or you could just stay in and enjoy a dip in the swimming pool or watch the sunset over the lagoon from your cottage balcony.
Knysna lies at the start/end of both the Karoo Crossing and Cross Cape long distance cycle routes. There are also wonderful mountain biking trails in the surrounding forests e.g. Harkerville trails, The Knysna Trail Park, Buffalo Trail and the annual Knysna Cycle Tour.
As a Bike Friendly Certified venue, Belvidere Manor Hotel provides in-room bike storage for overnight guests and a range of bike friendly services (see below).
