Oh yes, better to misspell it. The reality is that. A place where you regret if the reservation is only for one night, as in our case. From the warm welcome and the customized service, the feeling is to be a part of the "family", without unwanted intrusions. The Lodge is located in the peaceful Leisure island, 5 min. drive from the centre of Knysna. At the entrance the large bright windows already open up a world. Rooms are warm, flawlessly appointed, full of intriguing details and a selection of books and magazines. Our bathroom wasn't huge, but with all ... the trimmings and the usual large shower you find commonly in South Africa (what a great thing!). The wooden balcony faces the lagoon, and the usual stunning african sunset is never far away. It is equipped with 2 long chair for sunbath and a table. Beds were comfortable and linen neat. Great choice of amenities and books in the common area, closeby where breakfast is served. A real lounge room with a mighty atmosphere and a "serve yourself" bar supplied with drinks and spirits. Alongside with the place, breakfast is excellent, with a full choice and yummy offering of the best english syle (and the more yellow scrambled eggs I've ever get!). Check in and check out procedures are smart and easy, value for money downright positive. To be improved the signage from the city to get to the lodge (we had to ask), the in room wifi signal, mostly weak, and dissociate the light from the ventilation in the bathroom, in the long run slightly noisy. Definitely the best place we've stayed in along the Garden route and one of the remarkable top end places in the South African hospitality industry. We'll be back for sure. Bewertung lesen

The lodge is located on a small, idyllic island, on the tides from the room observe can. The rooms are massive and beautiful. Highly recommended the rooms are on the top floor; as the 'basement' unfortunately because of the feuchen climate during our trip a bit musty smell. The hosts, however especially the staff Margaret are lovely. Margaret was unbelievably helpful, hospitable and kind to us. The breakfast was terrific-the muffins, pastries etc. Were fresh in the lodge baked! Busy in this area not, you have to a car to have supermarkets, restaurants etc. To achieve. Bewertung lesen

The two host are very helpful and try to fulfill every request. One evening we were allowed for example your personal Grillequipment to the beach and take than a Championsleagespiel, my friend wanted to see in the television ran, the host everything done, that it via pay tv ( for us but free) could see. The breakfast was hearty and with a lot of fresh fruit. Altogether one could say, that it is of course no massive luxury Shelter for all inclusive vacation is, but a small clean guest house, the classy and modern and didn't miss anything. Bewertung lesen
