This hotel is in a great location between the main street and the waterfront so you have the best of both worlds. There is ample safe parking out the back and a lovely little swimming pool with a deck area and jacuzzi etc. The layout of the hotel is quirky as the hallways have a zig zag layout. Seemingly the...

The hotel conveniently located. Just a short walk to the waterfront which has a great range of restaurants. Our room was nice and clean. Breakfast was great with an array of choices. Staff were very helpful, even when we asked questions about activities outside of Knysna.

Outstanding service from the entire team. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast spread is appetising and varied. The Log Inn is central and very easy to use as a base when exploring the Knysna area.

After a long day on the road just after Christmas, this was a VERY welcome break. We were checked in quickly and efficiently. The staff were extremely helpful to other tourists that were enquiring about local sights etc. The passage to our room was rather unique in its Zig-zag design and the rooms were large by any Standard.

We were looking for a hotel during our holiday which was close to all Knysna amenities and attractions. The Knysna Log Inn was perfect. The place is located 250m from the Knysna Waterfront where you can find restaurants, great oysters and excellent boat cruises. The hotel is also not far from the Knysna Forest, Elephant Sanctuary etc. Parking is no...

This is an above average ( not great) hotel, walking distance from the water front. The reception is decent and the car parking is at the rear.

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 The log style of the hotel is a bit outdated.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.
