Simon Sutherland: “Where Guests become Friends.”
Eighty seven tastefully decorated rooms, extensive grounds framed by magnificent trees and a terrace with a breathtaking view, Premier Hotel The Winkler provides a peaceful base from which to explore White River and its beautiful surroundings. The four star hotel is perfectly located just 20 minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park and has easy access to the wonderful Lowveld attractions which draw visitors from across South Africa and further afield – Pilgrim’s Rest, the Blyde River Canyon, the trail of waterfalls around Sabie and the Panorama Route.
Fly-in guests will enjoy the convenience of Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport just 14 kilometres away, while a comfortable drive of 4 hours from Johannesburg or Pretoria on good roads delivers guests to the strikingly designed hotel. The Winkler has been a Lowveld landmark for decades and many people have childhood memories of the iconic steeple roof while the well-established grounds are ideal for post lunch strolls beneath the shady, colourful trees.
Premier Hotels are proudly South African owned, and regular guests should enrol for their Royalty Club to reap loyalty benefits. The Winkler offers a broad based experience, from comfortable, casual family holidays to tour groups, weddings and conferences. Their Buffet breakfast is popular for business meetings while a Sunday afternoon enjoying coffee and the amazing view from the terrace after a delicious and substantial lunch is a must.
The calm, gracious atmosphere that welcomes visitors makes The Winkler a grand choice for Valentine’s and Mother’s Day treats and the friendly, experienced staff always have a cheerful greeting and a broad smile for both new and returning customers.
