Not the best option in the area
I booked 2 rooms at this hotel, mainly due to it being our wedding anniversary and I was looking for a hotel to spoil my wife with a spa bath and a good restaurant on-site. On check-in we were led to a suite without a spa bath. I specifically booked a suite with a spa bath. We were then moved to a suite with a spa bath. On inspection I found the spa bath not working and when I queried this with Reception I was advise "it should work". The AC also did not work as it only worked on "Fan" mode. The children stayed in a separate room and shortly after 8am the cleaning staff arrived and wanted to clean their room. Surely the cleaning staff should have a list of vacant rooms ready to be cleaned and not just pitch at random rooms for cleaning? The Bull Run restaurant was also a let down. We opted for the Lobster on the menu but were advised they were out of stock as was the pork belly. This hotel has a lot of potential but I am afraid that with all the competition in the immediate area they will probably not see me again.

Protea Hotel Review
Overall the hotel was not bad. When we had dinner on Friday evening, it was unbearable to eat in such a cantankerous restaurant. That made us not to enjoy the meal at all. The shuttle driver between the hotel and Nelson Mandela Square had such a negative attitude. Could hardly greet passengers and open doors for us. If this person works for me, I would get rid of him on the spot. Has no clue what customer service is all about.

Reduce carbon footprint
All was good, the walk to my room was quite long though. Also the hotel would like for guests to reduce their carbon footprint, however reception prints 4 pages of information that could be printed back to back and easily be reduced to 2 pages, as in most cases the extra pages is a single sentence that didn't fit on the first page. Also a complete page for a drivers license copy, when this could easily be stored on their system.

Balalaika Sandton
Our stay at the Marriott Balalaika Sandton was wonderful. Great service, the check-in too less than 5min. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I didn't like joint single bed to makeup the King size bed, would have loved to get a proper King size bed. But overall our stay was great!
