“Knysna Log-Inn Hotel: Good value”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Very good value for money... I booked a family room and a single room, but to my surprise I received two family rooms for no extra charge. I guess it was to keep all of us together and maybe they were not busy. Well either way it was a bargain and I appreciated their customer focus. It was a clean and neat venue with a generous buffet breakfast.

Dear Chrismuz
Thanks for reviewing Knysna Log-Inn so favourably on tripadvisor. Being within two blocks of the Knysna waterfront which is the centre of all tourist activities in our little town is a real bonus. Knysna Log-Inn does have a unique feel to it and was built purposely to fit in with Knysna's history of being a Timber industry town last century.
We are happy that you enjoyed the standard of service that that you received.
Hope to see you or your friends visiting Knysna and the Log-Inn soon.

This is a very pleasant hotel and the welcome was superb. The moment we arrived the hotel we were met with a cold drink. The rooms and facilities were all clean and well maintained. Free wifi and computer use which was a real bonus. Bathroom and bedroom spacious and modern.
Had a lovely breakfast with a vast array of food. It was very busy in the restaurant but never once did we need to ask for the trays to be topped up or tea etc as the staff were on the ball.
Bar is a good place to relax or have a drink before walking to the waterfront which is a stone's throw away.
Always felt safe and secure.
Thanks

Dear CB1315
Thank you for your very positive review of Knysna Log-Inn. the manner in which you were received has become one of the staffs really strong points. We often hear that the genuine way in which all staff interacts with guests makes all the difference.
Our breakfasts are also a highlight and we pride ourselves in offering quality, quantity and a few decadent surprises that other hotels do not offer.

We had a great visit to this hotel. Very nice rooms, good service, excellent breakfast. Best part was the Anchorage Restaurant right near by, and a place to do laundry that will deliver back to the hotel free of charge. Great place for a family to make a stop over during a trip of the area.

Thank you so much for this review. Our position as well as the unique features of a timberlog hotel do make us the ideal place to stay. i am so glad you enjoyed Anchorage restaurant. it is often overlooked for the glitzy waterfront restaurants. they serve really good food at a reasonable price.
thank you as well for the kind words about our freindly staff and great breakfasts. we do work hard at the little things that are often overlooked.

We stayed in this hotel while travelling the Garden Route, staying only 1 night in Knysna. The hotel was easy to locate, just off the main road, and easy to spot as it's name implies! The hotel was lovely, large and airy, with good sized rooms and bathrooms. The staff were welcoming and gave good advice on places to visit in the area, as well as restaurants to try. Although we only stayed one night, it was definitely a place that made a good impression and I will stay there again on my next trip to the Cape.

I often try to find accommodation that mirrors the culture or history of the place where it is, or at least of the name it carries. This is definitely one of those hotels. The wood building is already a great start for a lovely atmosphere. The bar adds to the feel and the breakfast is superieur. The rooms are very neat and tidy and the balcony overlooking the street is a very nice place to relax.

The whole setting with good restaurants in the same street, walking distance to the waterfront or shopping mall to the other side etc, is just perfect and makes a visit to Knysna a pleasure.

I will definitely stay here again for business or holiday and will absolutely recommend the hotel to anybody.
