I stayed here as part of a tour and really liked it. The room was big and bed comfortable. The few photos I took didn't do it justice. It is a very short walk from the waterfront and lots of restaurants in the same road.

My favourite place to stay in Knysna. The staff are very helpful & friendly. The rooms are stylishly decorated & comfortable. Great location....walking distance to many restaurants, the waterfront & the mall. Easily accessible with plenty of parking.

This is what a real log inn is supposed to be. A very nice experience. Well designed rooms. They have a pool as well. Goes well with the quaint town of Knysna. Staff is very friendly. Porter services are chargeable, totally safe and secure. Breakfast spread needs to be a bit better. Indian restaurant is walking distance from the Hotel...

The rooms were quite small but had an interesting double dutch door opening to the balcony. Found a strange smell in the room although it was clean. Two large stained glass windows in the main lobby area.

Built with logs and woods from the area, and hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to the Quays and restaurants. Everything one needs for a comfortable stay is available, and the rooms are very clean. Free wifi is available in rooms. I liked that the room had a deck. There is an unheated pool, and the Jacuzzi and...

A quiet place, small long corridors but comfortable and clean rooms. The cookie jar in the room was my favourite ! This is walking distance from the lagoon. They don't have any food service here which was a let down, we were asked to go across the street for dinner, nothing fancy, a small pub. All in all for the...

I wouldn't say this was a 4* hotel compared to others we stayed in on our trip. The rooms were finest the bathrooms was tiny and the view from the balcony which barely had room for two chair, overlooked a back yard. The pool was part of the carpark except fro a fence but we did use the sauna and...

Stayed one night and everything was great. Our room was clean and comfortable , the whole hotel is just lively with the big open reception area and carved wooden decor. Breakfast was terrific with a really wide range at the buffet. Definately will be back.

Nice spacious hotel with very friendly staff. We got very good rates as well. It is very close to the waterfront, hence overall good accessibility. Just be sure that you go out for dinner very early. Room was good as well. I loved the log design. Visited in July 2013

Some places have to be average, and that is what this is. There is nothing really wrong with it except for the very slow Wi-Fi; it is impossible to upload pictures. The laundry service was inexpensive and they did a good job. The breakfast is very good. The rooms are adequate. Not large and not luxurious, but OK. There is...
