Comfortable guest house on the quiet Leisure Isle in Knysna. The house was very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were magnificent setting us up for the day with warmed muffins or flapjacks extras-nice touch.

This guest house is beautiful. The rooms are large and have everything you need including bathrobes and slippers. Great bathrooms with lovely showers. Great breakfast too. Set on an island which is very safe and pretty. There are some great restaurants a cab ride away. The views from knysna heads is amazing. Thanks for an excellent stay.

Apologies for not reviewing earlier! We were a group of three couples and arrived at the Knysna Belle after a long drive through some beautiful scenery which was quite mountainous in places. We were warmly welcomed by Gillianne who immediately provided us with tea and biscuits - very gratefully received by all. Our rooms were beautifully appointed, the beds were...

We stayed in the luxury suite in July 2016. The room was an upstairs room...large with a beautiful view of the lagoon . However when we arrived it was icy cold. We were told that the under floor heating had just been turned on...but it was only around the bed area. There were two small heaters... One in bathroom and...

Spent the weekend of the Knysna half marathon here with my family. Wonderful venue, great service and lots of extras like bicycles. The view is also amazing. Looking forward to visiting again next year.

Good food, beautiful hotel with a lot of comfort! Also, the food was delicious and the hotel has an amazing view from the Knysna Heads. It's located in an island, which is very calm for staying and close to the city (you can eat in waterfront)

This lodge is located on one of the nicest islands in Knysna, and although I would consider it rather cheap (being based in London) as a result of a cheap rand, this was top class, very nice, quite luxurious. If I had to do it all over (and I probably will), I would go for the top floor room. There...

Stayed for a couple of nights. Very comfortable front ground floor room with own entrance and view across lagoon. Also sun bed and chairs. While at the front of the property it is well away from passing traffic - which in itself is not heavy. Good night's sleep even with a window open. Friendly, helpful and engaging manager and staff....

Great view whether the tide was in or out ... And it goes out a long way here! And when it's in you can swim or use the kayaks to paddle as far as you wish, fantastic if you have the sun. And if you don't the view out the entrance to the sea will keep you captivated. Staff great,...
