We loved our stay at Isola Bella. Marisa, you are a wonderful host and in all the years we have been to Knysna for the cycle race, your place is by far our favourite stay. Everything was top class and there was nothing lacking from plush bedding, under floor heating,heated towel rails to a wonderfully hot shower. The scenery is... More

The stay was great, the establishment and staff excellent and the position is stunning. I can recommend this establishment very highly and will definitely stay here again when in Knysna. If you are a golfer and want a game chat to Marisa as well.

Lovely Location. No Room with a view. Room should have a fridge, which was for all guests on the First floor. Breakfast just Self -Service, even Koffee-Making or boiling an egg. Have had higher Expectations. Owner and stuff very friendly.

Wonderful views, good room, able to eat outside. A more personal experience like living in someone's house. Marissa very friendly, the house has a real Italian style, our room although not large had windows on three sides making for a very light and airy room

The B&B is on Leisure Isle on the edge of the lagoon facing the heads. Very comfortable, quality, upmarket establishment. Marisa, the owner is warm and friendly and gave us all the assistance we needed. Breakfast was self-help and comprised bread, coffee, juice, fruit, and cereals, and one can make one's own boiled egg if desired. So if you are... More

The rooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe space, our room had its own little patio next to the bedroom. It was very tastefully decorated, very stylish. The bed was very comfortable, I... More
