It was amazing

Average to Good Hotel with perfect location!
The hotel is in a great location. Check in was pleasant, and quick. The hotel is neat as well as the common areas. Parking is R55 per day and the guards are not very efficient when letting you in and out. The rooms are modern and very neat. However housekeeping is a bit of a let down, amenities like a shower cap, shower gel, etc is only provided once and never replenished. If you need any extras, like towels, etc. make sure you call an hour or two before as their housekeeping service is exceptionally slow. The restaurant serves only breakfast which we did not have so I can’t rate the food. Another let down is no dining during the day or room service, yes there are many eating houses around but they tend to fill up during peak season rather quickly, so it’s like going out to a normal restaurant during peak season and hoping to get good quick service. So hotel dining would have been a plus.. Overall it is a average to good hotel in a perfect location!

Excellent Location
Location was excellent however breakfast was a total let down. I would recommend that you only book a room only option and have a lovely breakfast at one of the Coffee Shops /Restaurants across the road.

Very good 8,0
WE loved our trip to the Protea but have a couple of points to make. There was no help to unload our baggage and we are in our seventies, even though guard at entrance called for one..............not acceptable. Also room was only cleaned at 3pm each day for the 4 days we were there....................also unacceptable! But we did love our stay there.
