Reviewed 22 July 2014

A 4 Star property within walking distance to the waterfront , this hotel is just about OK. Rooms (we were booked in a triple room) are small, views nothing much to talk about. Breakfast was passable and the same on all days. , no live counters for hot food. All in all, just about OK.

From the time of arrival to our very early departure two days later, the staff and management were very helpful and accommodating.

We stayed at the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel for four nights. Upon arrival I was immediately struck by the warm cozy feel you get when entering a log cabin chalet, I loved the wooden vibe, really did make you feel like you could be standing next to a wooden fire. Parking was easily accessable and staff were very happy to assist...

I had a very short stay at knysna log-inn, just about 20 hours. So it won't be fair to judge a hotel for such a short stay. Otherwise the staff was very courteous, the rooms were good and i loved the breakfast buffet, not too many vegetarian options though. The location is also very good, its walking distance (200m) from...

This property often hosts tour buses which can be a bit noisy in the morning if you are not rising early and your room is on the street side. Our room was large, clean, and the bed was comfortable.

Dear Mamiya7 Thank you for your review of the Knysna Log-Inn Hotel. I have to agree with you that the buses can be a bit noisy in the morning, and quite often you will see me flying out of my office and jumping on the drivers. However, I suppose they also keep the comfort of their guests in mind when...

The rooms are spacious and clean. Staff was really friendly. They actually took the effort to learn a few Indian dishes to serve for breakfast for our group of 20. Location is nice.. Just 1/2 km from the waterfront area. Recommend this place as a base to explore the surrounding regions in western cape.

Stayed in this cozy and homely hotel during my tour to Garden Route. Woody decors are very adorable. There is a small balcony which allows you to chillax around.
