Rooms are perfect, comfortable and office desk and chair. Love the red apples every day - clean and modern as well. Lovely breakfast, friendly staff - they remembered I wanted grill tomato for breakfast! Small things count. Well done

The hotel is ok, the room is quit nice and comfortable. The breakfast is great. The thing I hated was the wifi, when I got in it was free, I used for like about one and a half an hour (several stops in between) and then I had to pay for it. I bought MB 250, it flew very fast,... More

Not the cheapest Hotel in Jhb (especially if you take their breakfast into consideration) but still a comfortable. We stayed in a suite which had more than enough space, very nice lounge area and bathroom. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Close to buss routes, but if you're from out of town, consider renting a car.

We enjoyed a very special weekend at Protea Wanderers. We had barely put our cases down, and we were welcomed personally by a lovely, friendly staff member handing us a delicious platter of snacks.

This beautiful hotel is in the High brow Sandton area. The rooms are neat, ambiance is great. The grounds of the hotel is very picturesque and there's a complimentary shuttle that takes you to some select locations. And the staff are amazing

Rooms are average; food in the restaurant is average. Location: hazardous to your health. We traveled as part of a Grand Circle Tour with this as our first hotel stop.
