“Great Location for Knysna Waterfront and Centre”
Reviewed 13 September 2009

Pleasant hotel in centre of town - short walk to Waterfront (bars / restaurants / boat trips) and to Town Centre.
Parking at rear of hotel, pool and sauna in grounds.

We were allocated a room on the street side of the hotel but after 1 night we changed to a poolside room as this was much much quieter. The hotel staff were excellent with request and transfered all our belongings etc after breakfast.

Stayed in this establishment for two nights as part of our honeymoon- not what it was advertised as- the decor is very jaded! one night is plenty- if possible avoid the front of the hotel as it is directly over a busy street. It is supposed to be a four star hotel- not in my opinion is this true given the qulaity of the other hotels we stayed in during our 2 weeks in SA. the rooms are very dark! The images on a number of the wed sites are from the rear of the hotel. Well chosen as ithey are not a true reflection of the hotel.

One of the highlights of our 3 week trip was 3 nights at the Log Inn Knysna. It is so close to the town and also the harbour so getting around is no problem. Great choice of seafood and fab resturants in the close proximatey. The hotel was clean with a small pool and sauna area, good parking facilities great breakfast and a nice bar and resturant on site. rooms are spacious and clean and staff looked after us well. Would definately recommend this hotel. The only point i would make is that accomodation was 1/2 the cost when we were there as what we paid in advance !! but thats the chance you take.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Knysna Log Inn. Was a bit worried after reading a few bad reviews, but we loved it. Then again, I think our room may have been in the nicer part of the hotel! The hotel had a really nice feel to it and the wooden staircases etc gave it a real 'quirkiness', which made it seem different from all the other hotels.

The hotel was also in a really good location, just 5 minutes walk from the main waterfront, which is fantastic for cafes, shops, restaurants etc. We didn't find it to be at all dangerous walking around in the evening etc, as others have mentioned - but again I guess just luck! Staff at the hotel were very helpful.

Only slight disappointment was probably the food in the restaurant, which we had the first night. But all in all a terrific place to stay.

A lovely hotel. Very cosy and friendly. All the staff were great especially Danny at the bar (get him to make you a township toiletcocktail). I did get stabbed with a pen when out and about and refused to hand over money to a schoolboy supposedly trying to get money for a school trip.But we were happy with the food, service and general cleanliness of the hotel. The pool is small but nice to sit round in the sunshine and relax.
