Loved our time at The Knysna Belle. Gillianne and Jo looked after us beautifully. Felt comfortable and private. Great breakfasts. Plenty of good local restaurants. Lovely outlook near to little beach.

Delightful place on the lovely unspoiled Leisure Isle. We highly recommend this place if you want to relax in a comfortable homely place, beautiful rooms beside pool or overlooking Knysna bay. Warm friendly ambience created by Gillian and Jo.

Room Tip: They are all good, just decide if you want to be by the pool or at the front.

We can fully recommend this B&B. Jo welcomed us with warmth and hospitality. The location, the rooms and the pool area, all is very nice in the very relaxing environment of leisure isle. As well a very good breakfast. Just one little disadvantage, the entrance of our room, the Nautilus room, is heading towards the parking area and is on the same level as the parking area, that means from here you can look directly into the room.

The house is located in a very quiet place on Leisure Island, very close to the center of Knysna. No noise around apart the birds. The place is amazing, close to the lagoon with a small beach. The B&B have kayaks and bicycles to allow more visiting experiences. The personnel is friendly and there is a big living room with games and books. Our rooms were clean, large and nice. The breakfast was really good and well prepared. Both Jo and Gillianne were helpful and could give us good advice for dining and visiting.

Room Tip: Nautilus room is superb, with view on the lagoon.

My wife and I and our 2 kids (aged 8 and 10) stayed here in October 2013. This is a beautiful property in an excellent location with great facilities. The service and food were superb and the views amazing. Our two boys loved the ability to help themselves to the mountain bikes and kayaks in the garage. The Leisure Isle is a very safe and relaxing location and this waterfront property makes the best of what the location has to offer. Hope to be back again some time in the future.

What a wonderful relaxing 2 day stay. We stayed in Annie Benn which looks onto the pool & garden. Christopher and Gillianne were very friendly & helpful. Great breakfasts. We loved the fresh fruit & hot home baked muffins. The house overlooks the lagoon. Kayaks & bikes are available at no cost for the guests to use. The electric blanket is my favourite to warms up the bed. Comfy flop in sofas in the lounge which looks onto the lagoon plus a real fireplace. I was almost disappointed that we had such great weather. We loved our stay.

My family from Dubai Cape town and the UK stayed here for two nights on our journey around the coast the setting is outstanding and the views from the balcony magical. All three generations in the party were really impressed by the way they were catered for from the canoes on the waterside for the younger set and the bikes for the tours of Leisure isle, the convivial settings for evening get-togethers were perfect and the delicious morning breakfasts set us up for the day ahead. Chris and Gillian were great hosts and made our stay here one of the highlights of a very memorable trip.
