I am a seasoned tour guide and have been travelling this route for years. This is the second time I have stayed at the Premier hotel in Knysna and both times they have been great. The rooms are very comfortable and the food is very tasty.
It is a Four Star hotel, with five star service.
One thing that stood out for me was the friendly reception staff. I had a Russian group with me and communication was limited, but they handled everything with ease.
For the techno people. ..WiFi is not for free. You get a short period for free then you pay. Wi fi in the rooms is pretty weak.
Local cell phone reception is also a bit weak too.
Overall my rating for the hotel is ....
MAGIC!!!! I recommend it highly.
