Cute little hotel in the city center not far from the waterfront. The lobby area is gorgeous, and the staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable, though I can never get used to a twin bed. And the included breakfast is REALLY great!

We stayed for 2 nights at the Knysna Log Inn. Nice property with a wooden chalet look. Rooms are spacious and clean. The property is at a good location and walking distance from the waterfront. The washrooms are nice but need some bit of maintenance. The breakfast is fine but they do not do any hot meals like omeletes, etc.... More

The hotel is well located and has all the basic amenities one wants when one is on a holiday. The hotel is made of wood so it's not noise proof. The breakfast is standard and the room size is nice. My wife found it quaint and walk to waterfront in the evening for dinner was fun. The toilets are functional.... More

This is a lovely property about 2 blocks from the waterfront/harbour. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are no elevators in the hotel, so be prepared to climb a few stairs if you have a room on the higher floors.

Knysna Log Inn is a beautiful hotel. All the rooms are large & spacious. It's very close to the waterfront. The only drawback is that it's a B& B hotel & does not provide a dinner. Though there are good eating places nearby. The Breakfast served is excellent.

Stayed in the Knysna Log-Inn while exploring the Garden Route. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Although the balcony was small it was still big enough to sit out on in the evening. The pool is small but refreshing after a long drive. Breakfast was vast and plenty of choice with happy smiles from all who work here.

Travelled along the Garden Route and stayed in the Log-Inn Hotel. This was ideal for our group all of whom are in our 20s. The rooms, hotel lobby and outside area were well presented.

We (6 people) stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel rooms were very clean and comfortable. Each room had a lovely balcony. Breakfast was a delicious buffet. Staff and service was great. Would definitely recommend to others. Great location - within walking distance of the waterfront.
