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. The stylish ,spotlessly clean room was warm and welcoming. We just love the large fresh apples handed to everyone, and Protea as always maintains our opinion... More

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. The guide and some staff advised us to stay on the property -- do NOT wander in the neighborhood. In doing some checking, I discovered that the warnings are valid.... More

It was the most horrible 3nights stay I have had to endure, worse because this was a business trip. Upon arrival the lady who checked me in on 08/06/2015 was professional. My woes started when i got back 09/06/2015 Tuesday afternoon. The room was visibly not cleaned, it is only the bed that had been straightened. The shower was not... More

On the plus side the rooms are clean and comfortable (for the price range) and well laid out, with a good desk/working area. Good bar and restaurant on the ground floor. However, the air con/heater in the room is very noisy and the smoke detector flashes quite brightly which is annoying at night. I don't know whether they now give... More

I spent 4 nights at this hotel and was looking forward to something different than a hostel. The service was bad, there was not really any answer to get, you are in the midler of nowhere and no one knows when the shuttle is available. When our toilet stopped working and we informed the staff in the morning, and then... More

This hotel is just around the corner from Wanderers stadium. It's also centrally located to many shopping malls and eateries and reasonably affordable. The room we stayed in was a decent size, clean and tidy. The bathroom was a little bit cramped and not well laid out. I say this because the toilet paper holder was situated lower than the... More
