Knysna Log-Inn Hotel
Ranked #18 of 30 Hotels in Knysna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 4, 2006

We stayed here 14/15 November 2006. No problems checking in or with the room. However, we did eventually, have three different telephones, before they provided one that worked!

The building is an odd yellow wooden construction and the corridors were very strange. The room was a standard style of hotel room with a small balcony that had a very high, solid balustrade. The pool was very small, but we never used it. Lobby was interesting, with stained glass windows.

Well located, and the area seemed safe. We walked round the town and to the quays quite happily. They washed our car on request. Breakfast was a large buffet selection, with ample choice.

This hotel is very popular with tour groups.

For most of the restaurants on the Quays, we would recommend booking as we had problems finding a table.

Reviewed September 25, 2006

I was recommended this hotel by a South African friend who was living in Knysna until recently. On my arrival, I wasn't sure what to think. It's quite a large hotel and is bang in the centre of town. The building is a very large yellow-coloured wood log cabin which is somewhat odd (some people love it) but impressive nonetheless, especially given the history of the forests around Knysna. Once you've got past this - here's why I loved it:
- It's easy to find, and parking is ample and safe.
- The breakfasts are amazing - really
- You can very easily walk down to the Knysna Quays for dinner (I never tried the hotel restaurant as there was such choice elsewhere).
- The service is top-notch, with genuinely very friendly staff.
The rooms are well-appointed, if a little bland - but overall this is a very good and practical choice. Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you think you might be bothered by noise from the street (not that I was).
