A week in Knysna during the coldest winter in many years was made warm and comfy by management and staff at this lovely hotel. The rooms are tastefully decorated, linen crisp and fresh. The heating in the room was super, especially after a cold day outdoors. Their buffet breakfast has a huge selection,accommodating kids too. The cosy bar is a... More

Knysna was a pretty waterfront town on our Collette-organized tour. The Log-Inn was really beautiful and the stained glass windows in the two-story lobby were stunning. The zigzag hallways were fun. The pool, sauna, and hot-tub were great. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Smiling servers toasted your bread....missed that multi-grain, nutty bread after leaving the hotel. Water/soda available for purchase... More

Knysna is a nice small town and Knysna log-inn is the perfect place to stay in Knysna. Built completely on bamboo, the hotel has a very different feel to it, looks even more beautiful at night. Hotel rooms are nice and spacious with all the required amenities along with parking. Very conveniently located close to the knysna waterfront from where... More

This hotel is in a great location between the main street and the waterfront so you have the best of both worlds. There is ample safe parking out the back and a lovely little swimming pool with a deck area and jacuzzi etc. The layout of the hotel is quirky as the hallways have a zig zag layout. Seemingly the...

The hotel conveniently located. Just a short walk to the waterfront which has a great range of restaurants. Our room was nice and clean. Breakfast was great with an array of choices. Staff were very helpful, even when we asked questions about activities outside of Knysna.

Outstanding service from the entire team. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast spread is appetising and varied. The Log Inn is central and very easy to use as a base when exploring the Knysna area.

After a long day on the road just after Christmas, this was a VERY welcome break. We were checked in quickly and efficiently. The staff were extremely helpful to other tourists that were enquiring about local sights etc. The passage to our room was rather unique in its Zig-zag design and the rooms were large by any Standard. The bathroom... More

We were looking for a hotel during our holiday which was close to all Knysna amenities and attractions. The Knysna Log Inn was perfect. The place is located 250m from the Knysna Waterfront where you can find restaurants, great oysters and excellent boat cruises. The hotel is also not far from the Knysna Forest, Elephant Sanctuary etc. Parking is no... More

This is an above average ( not great) hotel, walking distance from the water front. The reception is decent and the car parking is at the rear. It is a slightly old hotel but reasonably well maintained. There is no special view from any of the rooms but the hotel is close to the restaurants and high street. The breakfast... More
