The General Manager and his entire staff: reception; restaurant and cleaning staff are extremely pleasant, friendly, cheerful and caring. We enjoyed the best service and were made to feel warm, welcome and comfortable. The GM must be complimented for his excellent leadership

An older hotel recently joined the Protea family. This hotel is located in an industrial estate near the N1. The accomodation is in a series of 2-storey blocks arranged in a manner faintly like a barracks or a 1950s american motel. There is a careful security guard, and the location is well fenced. The maintenance is to very high standards.... More

Coming back to stay at this Protea Hotel has been a revelation. They give credence to the adage that change is as good as a holiday! Why...?
