We stayed here two nights on our tour of South Africa. The log walls and stained-glass windows give the place a lot of charm. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. We were on the top floor, so got a bit of exercise going up and down - not a problem for us but you should request a lower floor if...

Lovely hotel in centre of town. Staff very friendly. Hotel situated very well for waterfront. Corridors seem a bit strange at first and expected the design to cause a lot of noise but we slept very well and heard nothing. Good breakfast offered .

The Knysna log Inn is an atmospheric friendly hotel ideally situated behind the Knysna Waterfront. A unique structure it exudes warmth and is well situated for visiting all that Knysna has to offer. TIP: Due to the noise from coaches which leave their engines running for long periods on the road outside ask for a poolside room.

Dear John Furse Thank you for your very kind review of the Knysna Log-Inn hotel. I do agree, the wood gives a warm and welcoming feeling and being built entirely out of wood, makes it unique and different from the normal brick and mortar structures.
