The staff in this hotel go over and above the call of duty to ensure that their clients are happy. Marti is the most amazing manager- the bosses are lucky to have an angel like her. All the staff were amazing - the breakfast team knew exactly how I liked my eggs and always asked how I was. They put on a very special spread. I stayed longer than intended and was treated almost as part of the log- inn family! My every need was attended too - I even went out on special trips with members of staff ( thanks again). A truly special hotel and staff. I had an amazing time at the Log inn and I know you all too!!! Thanks again!!! 100/100!!!!

Dear Alybuk
Thanks for your very kind and very excellent review. We at the Knysna Log-Inn enjoyed having you around although the circumstances were not so pleasant for you. I do hope you will be able to visit South African and specifically Knysna and the Log-Inn in the not so distant future and that you will then be able to have a holiday as you intended. Keep in touch...

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.

Dear Raccotappa. Thank you so much for reviewing Knysna Log-Inn. The hotel is unique and we are very proud of our Timberlog roots and heritage. Our biggest asset is our distance from Knysna Waterfront, with all its attractions, restaurants and shops. we hope to welcome you, your family or friends back at Knysna Log-Inn in the near future.
