I opted for self catering rooms and we were thrilled with the very large room, with kitchen, bedroom and lounge. The position of the hotel is prime and where it all happens. Umhlanga is a... More

Staying in Protea Hotels across the continent on my travels, I had no hesitation to use Protea Umhlanga for needed weekend accommodation with my family recently. Being in Umhlanga, I expected a better than normal experience but was not impressed. The staff were friendly and polite and while the rooms were clean and comfortable, the hotel is badly designed and... More

Prime location in the heart of the vibrant Umhlanga Village. Shops, restaurants, pubs, beaches all within a short walk away. The rooms are good. Would be great to have the restaurant serving dinner; they only serve breakfast in the hotel. Overall however, great value.

I stayed one night at the protea hotel. The hotel was clean but absolutely average. The noise in the hallways was very bad. The rooms are definitely not sound proof as the entire evening you could hear guests walking up and down the hall and talking.
