Booked one night as a sleepover before a trip. The hotel room was very comfortable, large, modernly furnished, and somewhat impressive. My husband and I ordered room service for dinner and we were very pleasantly surprised with a delicious meal - surprised because, we stayed at the Premier Hotel Knysna in December, and the food was less than adequate to say the least. Up to that point, the hotel impressed me. The next morning was another story though. After opening the water in the shower, I discovered that the shower was flooding. I called reception to report the fault. A gentleman was sent to the room to check. He opened the shower on the slowest setting, and after a few seconds, when the shower floor had just about gotten covered in water, he declared that the shower was safe to use. I explained that I would be having a shower that was longer than a few seconds, and on a setting with higher water pressure. He responded by saying that if the room flooded, that would not be a problem. Sure enough, the bathroom, and then the room flooded. My husband and I did what we could to mop up the water by placing towels everywhere - but that didnt make a dent in the water. Even the hallway got carpets didn't escape the flow of water from my bathroom. That, after just 2 short showers. This severely disappointed me - as I had to put my socks and shoes on downstairs in the lobby, for fear of soaking them in the room. I requested then, that I got dinner the previous night on the house - I was allowed this, and did not pay for dinner, however they did insist on payment of our drinks - an appletizer and a grapetizer. The room is good - service however is not that hot.
