About Knysna Log-Inn
Built in 1998, this unique four star hotel is truly in tune with the area’s history of being the hub of the indigenous timber industry of the Knysna forests. The lavish, but tasteful use of rare Yellowwood and other indigenous timber in the construction showcases just why the area became so famous for timber products in the last century.
The area is renowned for its natural beauty and has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole country. The magnificent Outeniqua Mountains run into the vast indigenous forests of Knysna. The town of Knysna itself is developed around the Knysna Estuary (lagoon) and Heads that lead out to the warm Indian Ocean.
The hotel offers fifty seven tastefully decorated rooms with all modern appointments. All rooms are air-conditioned, have flat screen TV’s with satellite options, hairdryers, tea / coffee making facilities and electronic safes.
Facilities at the hotel include a salt water swimming pool that is kept at a constant temperature year round of 24 degrees celsius. We also offer a Jacuzzi and a Sauna, where guests can unwind and relax with a cocktail after a long days exploring.
