Located a short distance from the Kruger National Park, The Winkler hotel, is the first Premier Hotels and Resorts property in Mpumalanga. “We are continuing our national expansion and Mpumalanga has always been viewed as an important location in our strategic growth plans, Premier Hotel The Winkler provides the perfect base from which to expand our offering within the South African business and leisure markets,” says Samuel Nassimov, MD of Premier Hotels and Resorts.
Premier Hotel The Winkler, formerly a Protea Hotel, is a luxurious four-star property, located 15.5km from the centre of White River, and offers guest 87 rooms ranging from standard and executive rooms to family rooms and suites. All rooms offer en-suite bathrooms, satellite television, internet connectivity and much more.
Situated 14km from Kruger Mpumalanga Airport, Premier Hotel The Winkler is a 20-minute drive away from the Kruger National Park. “This year marks Premier Hotels and Resorts’ 25th Anniversary. While this is definitely a milestone for the brand, the truly exciting part is, we’re just getting started. Our portfolio has more than doubled in only four years and the acquisition of The Winkler Hotel is just another step towards our goal.” Nassimov concludes.
Premier Hotels and Resorts started with humble beginnings with a 40 bedroom hotel in East London, Eastern Cape. Today, the company’s portfolio has grown to encompass 15 hotels and resorts throughout South Africa’s top holiday and business destinations, that offers more than 1700 bedrooms and provides employment to 1 500 passionate staff members, as well as the East London International Convention Centre.
