Had one of the house/apartments. Came part of a group tour. Staff made a complete mess of delivering the luggage to rooms. The system they use is rubbish. They should let the guests identify their bags like all the other hotels. We ended up with the wrong luggage at our rooms. House/apartment was very modern and fully equiped so ended...

We stayed in a suite with a balcony over looking the pool. The suite had a full kitchen and sitting area. The food was great, they had a kids area, out door chess, free wifi in public area, and all bathroom amenities. You can walk on the grounds and get a great view of the Knysna Lagoon.

We were staying at the Premier hotel on the 26th of November 2016. A hotel normally choose the front desk staff for their ability to communicate with clients, pleasant personality, problem solving skills and helpfulness. First impressions is lasting impressions and therefore it is important to use the right customer interfacing staff at reception. The 1st words that we normally...

This place is made for those times that you want to break away from everyday hassles and rush. Peace and quiet to the mind and soul . Off the main roads and away from the mainstream. Wide open spaces on the grounds. For that time alone or with your loved one

The suites are exceptional set to pamper the most discerning visitor. The setting is peaceful but close to all the amenities that Knysna has to offer. The staff are super friendly and efficient and the menu is a la carte, superbly prepared. Breakfast will blow you away. Excellent value for money.

This is a good hotel to stay at but it is a hotel. The main issue, the biggest issue, for travellers especially, is WiFi. Receptions staff spent easily 70% of their day trying to resolve guest connectivity issues with this system - its CRAP! Someone do something about this for goodness sake! For the rest it has great rooms but...

Reasonable choice of food, and huge rooms - more like a Board Room, with full kitchen facilities but, as we only stayed 2 nights en route to Cape Town, we really only made use of the comfortable bedroom and luxury bathroom with all toiletries. Our ground floor room had patios on 2 sides, with nice views of the grounds and...
