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.

Very nice hotel, clean and with friendly service, smiling a lot but no pressure, just gentle. Very next to waterfront and shopping zone. Good wifi. Breakfast regular, not too good, nothing special. Books to read available on the uper floor, very calm and relax situation also to drink a glass of something good tasting.

The rooms in the Log-Inn are peasant, comfortable and well maintained and a comfortable size. The common area are done in wonderful South African wood and are comfortable to hang around in. Don't miss the interesting stained glass in the lobby. The buffet breakfast is hearty and provides many options, all well prepared. The staff is pleasant and helpful. All... More

We spent 1 night at Log-on inn and it was absolutely wonderful. It was our second favourite hotel in the 2 weeks we spent in South Africa. It didn't have quite so much space in the room as many we stayed in, though there was still plenty enough but the ambience in the room was perfect. The cold breakfast spread... More
