“December Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a great hotel in the centre of Knysna an easy walk away from the Marina. Its easy to get to the Heads by car. The rooms are very neat and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is pretty good too.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are friendly and efficient. The location of the hotel is convenient and close to all amenities. The breakfast buffet with a selection of fresh fruit is the ideal way to start your day, will definitely recommend this hotel.

What an unexpected surprise. The food was nice, and the Logg Inn was centrally located. The staff was super friendly and I can't fault it. I only spent one night in a stop-over, but I am pleased my travel agent chose this place

Room Tip: The ends of the corridors are better as they are quieter

This Hotel is convenient for walking around town. The pool is small and in the parking lot almost. The rooms are quaint but serious need for renovation. Worst hotel shower ever in my travels. Food at breakfast was quite fresh and good. They have no restaurant for dinner and a old lounge.

Spent 3 nights here with my guests. Rooms are good and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Decent choice of restaurants within walking distance. Good breakfast at hotel. Nice pool and sauna and Jacuuzi. Only disappointment was the noisy street that my room faced onto, will request pool side room on repeat trip.

Room Tip: Request pool side rooms to avoid vehicle traffic at night and early mornings.

We stayed at this hotel on a leisure trip to Knysna. The location of the hotel, especially its proximity to the waterfront, is the key highlight.
The wooden interior and decor of the hotel and rooms are pleasing to the eye. Our room for three was especially spacious.
Their restaurant does not serve lunch and dinner. Even though the breakfast buffet spread is comparitively limited, the food was was good. The restaurant staff are helpful and courteous.
One of the disadvantages is that this hotel does not have an elevator inside, so the hotel staff needs to carry your luggage to the first and second floors.
All in all, we would definitely recommend this place if you find yourself in Knysna.

Room Tip: Try to get the pool-facing rooms.
