We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Knysna Premier Hotel.. A plus would be if the Hotel have small boats made available to their guests to use on the lake.. The rooms are quite massive and the hotel are centrally located..

My husband and I spent three nights here and we loved our stay. Our room was more like an apartment with a fully fitted kitchen with state of the art appliances (gas stove, dishwasher, fridge - the works) and a massive wooden dining table. The lounge/living area was very comfortable with a large flat screen tv. Our bedroom was massive!... More

Welcomed by the friendly staff, the check in procedure was swift and efficient, we had a vast balcony overlooking the pool. Food was good and plentiful. The surrounding grounds provided an enjoyable evening walk.

I was disappointed that we could not check in 2 hours before the official check in time, the receptionist who checked us in provided poor service and without a smile!! service at breakfast was poor, staff just stand around the egg station talking and not serving the guests. It takes ages to attract a waiter or waitress!!

We stayed for four nights in The Moorings and we felt comfortable during the days. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The service, from the beginning with the nice ladies at the reception with Esther and in the Restaurant (beautiful eggs during the breakfast time) were outstanding. We will come back to The Moorings when we decide to stay... More
