Our third stay at Knysna Belle and as always a great experience. Gillianne is a wonderful host and all staff are extremely helpful. Accomodation, breakfasts and location 5-Star. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We only stayed for 1 night, and we wished we could have stayed for more! Enjoyed cycling around the island, this guest house is perfectly situated. Friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast the next morning.

We had a lovely stay at the Knysna Belle. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and there was a lovely swimming pool (although we did not use it as it was winter). This is one of the few B&Bs that have an inter-leading Family Room on Leisure Island. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We stayed here for the Knysna...

After a rocky start with our booking the Belle certainly did a great turn around Service is personal, thoughtful and attentive without being intrusive. Our room was gorgeous with ample heating ( fireplace, underfloor, heater and electric blankets) all of which we needed on a very cold winter weekend! The views are amazing and even better than in the pictures....

A beautiful place next to the waterfront. Excellent service and comfortable living room. Breakfast on the patio could not be exceeded. For the five adults, each occupying a separate room it was just perfect. The varying room standards helped our group as some of us were used to 4 to 5 star standards.

Just the retreat needed after a very busy week of conferences in Cape Town. The fireplace in our room (the lovely and spacious Captains Quarters) was very welcome with the onset of unusually cold wet weather. Despite the weather, this b&b is an excellent choice, amazing views, comprehensive breakfast, and friendly staff. The extra amenities such as canoes, kayaks, ,mtn...

Peace, tranquillity and 5-star service. The Knysna Belle is located on beautiful Leisure Isle, overlooking the lagoon with views to the Heads. Our stay there combined total relaxation with activities such as cycling and kayaking on the lagoon as the guest house has a range of bicycles and kayaks to choose from free of charge. All the staff are friendly,...
