Warm and cosy place to stay and staff are amaizing. The food and hospitality where very good and we will come back soon. The Lodge is well looked after and very private. We arrived and there was a fire made and a very homely feeling.

We spent two nights at Leisure Isle Lodge at the beginning of our South Africa adventure. The location is lovely - a few steps away from the sandy beach with lovely views towards the Heads; we went walking along the beach which was very enjoyable. The public areas - bar, dining room and lounge - are light and spacious and...

We loved our room and the chic and quaint style of the house. Very few rooms so it feels like a family of strangers. The food on the first evening was seriously delicious, however, the christmas eve dinner was a joke. We couldn´t imagine the same person preparing it so they either had a sick cook they desperately tried to...

Leisure Isle Lodge is the perfect place to have a quiet weekend away from the crowds. The staff are very friendly and the room was big and luxurious. They have a very good restaurant at the lodge and we enjoyed walking around the island every morning and then had a very good breakfast.

This was not just another "hotel" on our Garden Tour but a real find. Very well appointed rooms, lovely facilities, excellent staff and super food. I have just read a comment that some of the staff were abrasive. We found anything but that and received excellent help, advice and service from Cher and Cheryl. Local restaurants need to be booked...

I researched for accommodation that had free bicycles and kayaking included and it definitely made the weekend memorable! We went cycling every morning and there was no time limit at all!! As newbies at kayaking, it should probably have been advised to rather wear our costumes, as we tipped and got sopping wet! All part of the fun and adventure,...

Maybe a product of the area, but Leisure Isle is a guesthouse/B&B charging boutique hotel prices. We found this to be an acceptable but poor value spot. Staff are mixed - some are very friendly but others are abrasive, in particular the ladies in the office (who seem to run the place).

Although we did receive an unexpected upgrade of room (huge lagoon facing suite), I would imagine that all the other rooms were as well appointed, if smaller. The staff provided an excellent service, without exception & the food was nothing short of memorable, both breakfast & particularly dinner.

We received a good service, but we find many problems about general cleaning (sunbeds, sofas, tablecloths). So good service and quite position, but not good value for money. Good choice at breakfast and good dinner.
