It might be a 4* lodge, but we experienced 5* service, and more so! We stayed the entire weekend for an intimate family wedding and we were treated like absolute royalty, yet at the same time it felt like we were right at home. I wish I could rave more! We stayed in the honeymoon suite and we were torn... More

This location is an outstanding place to spend a couple of days to relax. All was excellent, super friendly staff, clean, save nothing to complain at all. Breakfast was excellent, we will come back for sure.

Yet again, the Leisure Isle Lodge pulled out all the stops and we experienced the amazing friendliness, good value and beauty of this magnificent place. Can't wait to go back! I haven't slept as well in a long time!

We stayed in a junior suite with a view on the lagoon. The room is very spacious, nicely decorated and well equiped. Beds are good. Free wifi. There is only one disadvantage: you can't darken the room properly. There is a very friendly welcome. The staff is very helpfull. There is a parking at the back of the lodge. They... More

I am in the travel industry from Canada and recently did a Garden Route Tour with my son. I had the opportunity to stay at the Leisure-Isle Lodge, and to my surprise was upgraded to the Penthouse Suite, which is very spacious and had a wonderful view across the lake. The staff were incredible, from the first gentlemen who greeted... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at LIL, stayed 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. The staff go above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Room very comfortable, breakfasts amazing and facilities very good. The location is the best, I would recommend anyone to stay on Leisure Isle rather than Knysna town. Right on the lagoon!

We arrived to find that we had been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite - which is vast. A lovely view across the lagoon. Very friendly and helpful staff (even though the reception office was undergoing alterations). Food very good.
