Reviewed 30 June 2014

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. The breakfast buffet was large and a wide selection. They will cook eggs to order if asked. The desk staff was...

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. Hotel corridor is very narrow and only allows 1 person to pass through at a time, but it makes the hotel more unique. Wifi is limited in hotel. I guess it's...

Spent two nights at this lovely hotel in Knysna. Possibly one of the best which has the advantage of being equidistant between the shopping area and the waterfront.
