There’s a lot to be said for Leisure Isle Lodge – the friendly welcome, the large, clean rooms and the fantastic bathrooms. The staff were attentive and helpful, and there were nice touches like finding that our car had been cleaned overnight. Breakfasts were also of a really high standard. We had one dinner in the hotel’s restaurant – all... More

We could really enjoy the very friendly athmosphere of this lodge, the attentive and professional staff. The excellent cuisine should be mentioned as further highlight. The Lagoon area will provide lot of nice activities and places to see. Weather conditions were not really convenient (one sunny and two partly rainy days), however, we could enjoy each and every hour of... More

We really enjoyed this charming lodge. The staff were excellent and the restaurant worked well for the whole family. This was a perfect place to spend a couple of days along the garden route, we found 2 fabulous quality golf courses, a place to take an evening walk with a couple of cheetahs and one to walk hand in trunk...

A mandatory pit stop in the garden route. Excellent. The meals are fantastic and also the atmosphere of the Lodge. However, the ambient music should be changed since it is always the same (breakfast, dinner, etc).

We were happy to stay at this pleasant Lodge after the long drive from Cape Town. We were welcomed by friendly staff who were happy to attend to our needs. As it was a late booking we did not get a room in the main building but the room we were allocated was spacious and quiet. We only had a... More

Very relaxed stay & friendly staff. Dinner & Breakfast was exceptional! Can not wait to return. Great views and walks to be enjoyed. Located on Leisure Island and close to the only beach on the Island.

My Wife and I were booked in for weekend, but on arrival found that our booking was only done for one night, and not the two nights booked via e-mail! This after driving through to Knysna from Cape town. The day manager, on the Saturday morning, however came to the rescue. How she got this right I still don't know,... More

We were a family of 15 staying at Leisure Isle Lodge over New Year, for 5 nights. We could not have asked for a better stay. The lodge is beautiful with lovely decor and comfy furnishings. The staff were absolutely wonderful and could not have done enough for us. They made us feel right at home, were so friendly, fantastic... More

fabulous guesthouse when it comes to decoration and rooms, the pool area is nice but you suffer from the aircon noise of the rooms. The food is ok, not excellent and pretty expensive. The restaurant area is quite small and you don't have privacy and quite a stiff atmosphere. Go there, the rooms are gorgeous, staff very friendly, but go... More
