The hotel is a nice hotel ! We slept here one night and than we were two nights in a game resort, but we kept the room. When we came back the room was not done. So we had to ask for clean towels. A nice lady delivered it at once.

The Protea Wanderers is right across from the club, has great rooms and without a doubt the most comfortable beds & pillows ever. The staff were all great but Melinda deserves special mention: she arranged an early check-in as well as... More

Protea Hotel Wanderers is very nearly the 4 Star hotel that one would expect in Europe. Great sized room, comfortable bed, TV, wifi (although limited free wifi download) and a decent bathroom with seperate shower. Generally speaking the staff were very pleasant. However, the restaurant lets the side down in a big way. We ate dinner on our first night... More

I stayed here in June, wintertime, for a week long business trip and this was a comfortable base. The location seemed good, although I was picked up and taken wherever I needed to go. Nevertheless, for my needs it seemed to be decently located. The room was clean and well maintained, a good size for one person and would have... More

we spent a week in October on business. Good hotel, nice staff. There was some confusion over the loyalty card, but it got sorted out. Very nice cleaning staff who cleaned my room. Very friendly. Breakfast was very nice if somewhat pricy.
