We stayed at Leisure Isle Lodge as a stop over point on the Garden Route. What a lovely place it was. The room was well appointed with all the luxuries you needed for a very comfortable stay. Beautiful bathroom with bath and shower and to top it all a very comfortable bed with great linen. I would most certainly recommend this lodge for your next break or stop over in Knysna.

My husband and I felt Leisure Isle Lodge was a real find especially with their winter special (book 2 days and get 1 free). We were delighted with the room upgrade that they gave us ... they are an establishment that over delivers! The staff were fabulous!! It was an outstanding experience in every way. The restaurant top class!

We did notice that there was a bit of maintenance needed in some parts ... and we were pleased to see that Leisure Isle Lodge were actually closing for a period in order to complete the necessary renovations. My husband & I would definitely recommend Leisure Isle Lodge to travellers!

We were recommended this accomodation by friends in Port Elizabeth for a stopping point while travelling to Cape Town. We wish we had allocated more time rather than just the one night. The location is brilliant and the service first class. the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. We dined in the restaurant and the food was also five star. Breakfast of beautiful smoke salmon and poached eggs was the ideal start for the drive South.
Highly recommended and very friendly and welcoming staff.

Fantastic place. The bedrooms are very spacious and well appointed. Downstairs rooms have a patio where you can enjoy the sunset over yhe lake and enjoy a glass of wine. Ask for a lakeside room. There is a poolside room...no privacy. Make sure to have dinner at their restaurant. The best I had in ages.

We have nothing but praise for Leisure Isle Lodge. Everything, and I mean everything, was absolutely perfect. If you're after luxury and personal attention, this is the place to stay.
The entire establishment is tastefully furnished and is always heated to just the right temperature. Our suite was spacious and beautifully decorated with an unspoilt view of the Knysna lagoon and Featherbed Nature Reserve. We thoroughly enjoyed all the extra touches and the attention to detail.

Daniella's Restaurant is sensational. Service was spot on and the ambiance was warm and inviting. Our meals were delicious!

Eriné was extremely helpful and made plenty of suggestions about what to do in the area. She also was kind enough to supply us with towels for the beach, an umbrella and a large bag filled with everything a 4-year-old needs for building sandcastles. Bicycles and kayaks are also available.

Innocent's wonderful sense of humour had us in stitches. He was helpful and accommodating at all times and is an absolute gem! He made us feel right at home. He's seriously a superstar!

We first visited Leisure Isle Lodge 17 and a half years ago whilst on honeymoon and even though it was fabulous then, it's matured like a fine wine and is even better now.

I would HIGHLY recommend Leisure Isle Lodge! You can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Suite 3 is fabulous. Very large, and if you have a child as we do, they will move an additional bed...

If you are looking for luxury with the best views on the Garden Route, then this is the place to stay. We only had time for 3 nights, but the comfortable and quality made us feel that we did not want to leave.

We have no hesitation in giving the top rating. We know others that have stayed at Leisure Isle Lodge and they all say the same. Yes, it is expensive, but you get what you pay for.

The staff were most helpful and contributed to a memorable time on the Garden Route.
