It's a small but cosy place to stay. Located conveniently very near to the waterfront. Enough parking for self driven vehicles. Staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast had Indian cuisine also. Rooms were decent and clean..Wifi in room was poor but.

The hotel is just 2 mins walking distance from waterfront. It is fully made of wood which creates a really nice feel. The rooms are cosy, clean, and sufficiently spacious. The Breakfast is good especially the sandwiches with white onions are delicious. The staff is courteous and helpful as they even packed us breakfast when we had to leave early morning. Overall nice place to stay. For vegetarians, there is restaurant "Rasoie" just a block away which serves good Indian food.

We had high expectations of this hotel as some friends of ours had stayed here 10 years ago & loved their stay. We checked in for 3 nights & used it as our base for exploring the heads & wildlife sanctuaries. When we got to our room we noticed it was two single beds (made up as single beds) pushed together, we immediately asked the duty manager to change to double bed as we were on honeymoon but we were informed that the hotel were unable to do so as they had no true double beds. The sheets couldn't be changed either to make it more into a double bed as the linen cupboard was locked & the manager hadn't the key. We both slept poorly that night. We expressed our unhappiness with the room again early the next morning. The bed was changed into an imitation double bed whilst we were at breakfast. The duty manager left us a bottle of wine, fruit & chocolate in way of apology which we appreciated. The hotel doesn't serve lunch or dinner at this time of year but recommended some restaurants by the waterfront which is 5 minutes walk from hotel. Of these, we loved 34 South. WiFi was included & good. Bath, shower, hairdryer, safe & tea/coffee facilities in room. Room was overlooking the carpark but had balcony. Pool, sauna & jacuzzi on site & open to use which we availed of. Towels were provided at reception. Breakfast is between 7am-9.30. Checkout was the earliest of any hotel we stayed in along the garden route (10am) which didn't suit us as we were in relaxed mode. Sleep ins are difficult to get as housekeeping can be heard in the narrow corridors. Breakfast was good & varied. I enjoyed the pancakes, fruit, pork sausages & scrambled eggs. I also liked the mugs provided for the coffee. I felt the dining area for breakfast could do with updating. The upper lobby area was relaxing to sit in & the stain glass window was lovely. Overall, this hotel fell short of our high expectations. Our main issues were lack of a standard double bed & early check-out. Highlights included the good breakfast & pool/jacuzzi/sauna facilities.

My family of 4 stayed at the Log Inn recently for the knysna Marathon. It's really well located and the breakfast is good.
They have off street parking too. The most impressive thing is how attentive management and staff are. Nothing is too big an ask.
It's also very cool looking - built as the name suggests - from logs.
Rooms well appointed- a great place to stay
