After a 14 hour journey (from the middle of the continent to the bottom), we were relieved to finally arrive at this haven of a property, on Leisure Isle. A haven of peace and tranquility compared to the bustle of Knysna itself.
We had the family room, actually two adjoining rooms with ensuite to the side of the main property. This would be perfect for a family with younger children, affording good privacy.
Very good breakfast, friendly welcome, very nice pool and situation. The room was hot although there were fans, and we did sleep well. One minor point was that despite being a family of 4, the table was not laid up for us like that. They had tables in 2s, diagonally in the room, and as we went to breakfast separately, I wasn't on the spot to sort it out. Very trivial point, but I just round it was rather unusual, I was sitting on the table next to my husband, facing away from him! I say this as constructive feedback, and would have mentioned it at the time of leaving but there was no-one to see at that time.
Big plus point was Tim's generosity, and helpfulness. He reserved a table at a nearby popular restaurant for us - one of those that you can't reserve a table at! And not only that, but didn't charge us for our bar bill, as a generous gesture after our long journey. It was only a small bill, but nevertheless stands out in my mind.
It was a shame we couldn't stay longer. If you are looking for somewhere to stay, I seriously recommend you consider the Isle, because of the added security and environment.
