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

I have to admit that imeediately when I walked in I felt welcomed. From checking in till check out, everything was a smooth sail. The friendliness of the staff members I interacted with also made such a big difference! Keep up the good work.

This is just to say keep it up to Protea Wanderers for a great job well done.

Horrible Service. Arrogant and Rude staff particularly if you are brown skinned or Asian. Dont be suprised if you find your room not cleaned when you return back. Be careful when booking rooms, most of the time breakfast not included and staff dont inform you of the same. Be prepared to face an embrassing situation ath the breakfast table and... More

We spent 1 night here at the start of a coach tour of SA. It is a good way out of Johannesburg and a quiet upmarket neighbourhood. Our room 421 was big with twin beds, fridge, safe, A/C and a separate desk with swivel chair. Free wi-fi was available in the rooms which also had an international socket which fitted... More
