Modern interior - beautiful. Restaurant : superb service and good quality food. Our rooms were regretfully not cleaned properly. Had to call housekeeping to re do the floors as well as bathrooms. It looked disgusting.

Enjoyed a pleasant overnight stay in the one bedroom suite. Excellent room fitment and plenty of space. Didn't test out the restaurant but looks well appointed. Pleasant location away from the town centre

Stayed at the Premier (again!) over the weekend of the Mountainbike Race (4 July). Whenever we visit Knysna, we stay at the Premier (it was our fifth time), because you do not get any place better than this! Location and rooms are awesome, food in the restaurant is great and the best of all ... the service! The people are... More

If you have rented a car this place works out great. It's central enough to mission in the small town and it's only a couple of km's away from the Knysna Head. Check out East Head for a lunch but be warned it does get busy so booking would be a good idea. We stayed in the superior room which... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite as 2 couples - Knysna marathon weekend. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Staff extremely friendly and prepared to go the extra mile. Nice restaurant on site. Lovely treed grounds which go down to the lagoon edge. There is a soccer field next door which does mean you might hear some singing if you... More

Accommodation was very good. Only criticism is lack of ambiance in the restaurant. Unfortunately the taxi rank close by and the carnival across from it was extremely noisy on some evenings. Safe environment for the kids.

We stayed here for 4 nights with the children. The setting is good, although a little far out of town if you want to do everything by foot. The service was friendly and efficient and the rooms lovely. I can recommend it highly!
