To start with an absolute, 100% positive; the food here breakfast and dinner is excellent. If you are booking a meal and want to focus on food quality and style, look no more - this is the place to go. Service, however, is run on a shoestring. Management disappear by 1600, there is no seniority unless pushed to resolve any... More

A lovely hotel, with very helpful staff in an outstanding location - we were delighted with it all during our stay. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished and very clean. The lovely Cher welcomed us and helped us to arrange the whole day and a special dinner at the hotel. I regret being stayed only one night...but I hope to... More

We had an excellent stay at Leisure Isle Lodge and everything was perfect. We even got an upgrade to the honeymoon-suite, which is a beautiful place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast very delicious (try the Müsli as it's very famous in this town) and drinks at the bar are excellent. We highly recommend to... More

Being the second time we stayed there, it was again a very pleasant experience! Very efficient staff on check-in & out as well as every other aspect. Very clean & attention to detail in the room with a complimentary fruit platter & sparkling wine on arrival made it very special. Great views of the Lagoon, Heads & close to Bollard... More

This is our second stay at Leisure Isle Lodge and to say we were impressed is an understatement. Situated 30m from Bollard Beach and a view of the Heads from the lounge and deck, this is a place to relax and unwind or a place to go for a long walk or swim. Our lagoon facing room was huge and...

Hotel perfect - got a free upgrade too! Lovely room over looking the pool. Breakfast delicious and we ate at Daniela,s (in house restaurant) one night too which was lovely. Werner, Cher and the staff were delightful, helpful and knowlegeable about the local area. Great base for local attractions - the Heads are beautiful, Tzikamma national park and Plettenberg Bay...

We had a wonderful time in Knysna, staying in the Leisure Island Lodge. It is a wonderful place with a geat view over the water towards the two heads of the lagoon. The house is wonderful stylished and they make you feel welcome at once. Dinner in Daniela's at the house is really most enjoyable. The rooms are big and... More

We had an excellent stay in Leisure Isle Lodge in a large room overlooking the bay. Very nice decoration with a (luxurious) homely feeling. The staff was friendly and helpful; the car was very dirty when we arrived after 100km on a dirt track: we found it clean the next morning.

Luxurious accommodation especially Room 1. Reception was friendly and welcoming. Didn't have time to enjoy the immediate surroundings - kayaking or cycling but plenty to see and do nearby. Especially recommend Robberg Nature reserve for a stunning clifftop walk with view of seals etc.
