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

We were on our honeymoon, got a great deal via trip advisor..location is on d main road, a 5 min walk from d water front. Ideal fr people who can't afford to stay at d waterfront. Food is good, parking available as well.. We got free chocolates and wine in our room as it was our honeymoon..

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

Great service. Friendly with decent breakfast choice.. Water from taps was brown like river water and carpets are dirty. Need upgrading. Central enough to be walking distance to water front and high street.

The pool is in focus on the pictures of the hotel. The pool status in december 2014 was far from ok. It is very tired, worn and the water was not clear. Lobby of hotel is ok, rooms big and ok. Breakfast good. The log style of the hotel is a bit outdated.

The hotel was situated at a walking distance from the Knysna water front. Very beatifully made with a huge lobby with large steps leading to the first floor with rooms... The lobby had nice painted glass interiors. The rooms were very well decorated and most importantly clean. We were very happy to get complementary access to Sauna and Jacuzzi in... More

A rustic wooden hotel, well-located in central Knysna, in a walking distance to the main street and to the waterfront. Very good breakfast and a helpful staff. My only complaints are that there was no mini bar in the room, and the poor Wi-Fi signal (but I noticed that this is a problem in many places in SA). We didn't... More

Set close to the centre of knysna this is a lovely hotel. The wood used in the construction is beautiful and adds so much character. The gardens are relaxing and a great place for a drink. Close to the waterfront and all amenities. Staff are attentive. Ask for a room overlooking the gardens.

This was another hotel chosen by our tour company but it was a wonderful choice. It is all wood and beautifully done. Huge logs greet you as you walk in the front door and walk up the steps to the rooms. We had a good bed and a big balcony that looked out on flowers. It was just a short... More

Fabulous place with loads of character, lots of wood throughout, including the rooms which were marvellous. Staff & facilities excellent. Close to shopping area & although on main road there are no noise problems. A good spot if you fancy a trip to Knysna Heads. Enjoy the drive into Knysna as well, truly picturesque.
