We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour of the garden route. The rooms were a good size and clean. There was a small pool and jacuzzi to relax after long walks in the morning. The hotel is conveniently located near to the waterfront as well as the Main Street for shopping.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The building is really interesting and the hotel had a homely feel to it. Our room was spacious and the beds comfortable. There was wifi available, but not great in the rooms. It was conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the waterfront & harbour area; but we...

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.

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...
