From the tim you enter this hotel the welcoming smile; swift check in and excellent service. Josephine grills the best King Klip ever. Andrew and his team ar a good example of the Hospitality Industry in South Africa. Keep up the good work. I will recommend this hotel without any hesitation

I had to spend 5 weeks in the Protea Hotel, Samrand between January & February 2014. This hotel is great if you are only on business for a few days! but certainly not for any longer. It was fanastic for my office, only one junction down the N1. The staff for thye most were great, apart the the receptionist when... More

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

At first I was dissapointed that I was booked into this Protea and not the Midrand protea hotel. Driving up to the hotel it had the motel look to it and I was not expecting too much. However I was pleasantly surprised. The service from the staff was good, the rooms were spacious and clean and the on-site restuarant was... 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...? Well no longer are they the little old Road Lodge type accommodation near the highway. I am delighted to say that they have transformed themselves with the appointment of new staff with a... More

The hotel is situated in an industrial area where there is really notting to do miles around. I made a mistake in the booking as I wanted to be close to the Gallagher Convention Center for an exhibition. Staff is nice and friendly, rooms are ok, but restaurant is not really a good deal. You can eat much better for... More

Rooms are very large and clean and tidy and they have local TV channels and Sky news. There is a kettle with coffee and tea, and a safe in the room. Nice shower though with good pressure.

This place is OK, but only if you paid little. It is really not up to the Protea Hotel chain's standards. Rule of thumb: don't pay more than you would pay for an old Road Lodge room. On arrival, my room had cleaning chemical smells lingering in the air, and they made me sick. The hotel swiftly moved me to... More
