Great service. Friendly with decent breakfast choice.. Water from taps was brown like river water and carpets are dirty. Need upgrading. Central enough to be walking distance to water front and high street.

Dear Volitil3 Thank you for your review of the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel. Situated in the heart of Knysna certainly makes it the ideal place to visit, especially during the holiday season, as you did in Dec 14. No worries about finding a parking space. Most of the staff have been here longer than 8 years, and some even from when...

The pool is in focus on the pictures of the hotel. The pool status in december 2014 was far from ok. It is very tired, worn and the water was not clear. Lobby of hotel is ok, rooms big and ok. Breakfast good. The log style of the hotel is a bit outdated.

Dear SwedenBengt Thank you for your review of the Knysna Log-inn Hotel. You mention the focus on the pool in pictures of the hotel, which is quite correct. The state of the pool during your stay late Dec 14 was quite embarrassing as the pool pump decided to also "go on holiday" and as this happened during the festive season,...

Dear PujaParwal Thank you for your very kind review of the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel.

A rustic wooden hotel, well-located in central Knysna, in a walking distance to the main street and to the waterfront. Very good breakfast and a helpful staff. My only complaints are that there was no mini bar in the room, and the poor Wi-Fi signal (but I noticed that this is a problem in many places in SA). We didn't...

Set close to the centre of knysna this is a lovely hotel. The wood used in the construction is beautiful and adds so much character. The gardens are relaxing and a great place for a drink. Close to the waterfront and all amenities. Staff are attentive. Ask for a room overlooking the gardens.

This was another hotel chosen by our tour company but it was a wonderful choice. It is all wood and beautifully done. Huge logs greet you as you walk in the front door and walk up the steps to the rooms. We had a good bed and a big balcony that looked out on flowers. It was just a short...

Fabulous place with loads of character, lots of wood throughout, including the rooms which were marvellous. Staff & facilities excellent. Close to shopping area & although on main road there are no noise problems. A good spot if you fancy a trip to Knysna Heads. Enjoy the drive into Knysna as well, truly picturesque.

Very nice hotel, clean and with friendly service, smiling a lot but no pressure, just gentle. Very next to waterfront and shopping zone. Good wifi. Breakfast regular, not too good, nothing special. Books to read available on the uper floor, very calm and relax situation also to drink a glass of something good tasting.
