I have stayed here before and found the restaurant rather lacking so I just use room service - the biltong salad is scrumptious. Nice desk, comfortable bed, free wi-fi - all the basics needed on a business trip.

I stayed here on my own for six nights whilst England were playing South Africa at Supersport Park. The room was fine without being luxurious and the service was good. I used room service quite a lot for light meals which were very good, fresh and great value. I had the breakfast buffet one day and it was good without... More

The hotel itself there is nothing wrong with, the rooms (we stayed in a suite) are comfortable , with a separate lounge and kitchenette area, but the smell coming from the dry lake outside the hotel is horrific. We stayed overnight in December and in 30+ deg summer weather, we were unable to use the pool because the smell outside... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and our baby! The hotel was nice enough-comfortable and clean. Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful! However, we had a couple of issues with the food. The day we checked in my husband got lamb chops that had gone bad. You could actually smell that they were off. The next morning... More

I've stayed at the Protea Hotel Centurion a few times and have always been satisfied with above average service and facilities. During my last stay, however, from 27 October to 1 November 2015, I found the experience extremely unpleasant. Neither the service nor the facilities was to blame, but the smell eminating from the rotting mass of mud and algae... More

This hotel was a very pleasant stay with just a few niggling points. It is very well placed right next door to Centurion Mall (200 shops and many restaurants, some good ones too). The rooms were clean and comfortable and a very comfortable bed too. A good ala carte menu and a good level of choice at breakfast. The round... More

I have always had a terrible experience at Protea Hotels. Their standard of customer care is dismal. I had the terrible misfortune of booking at this particular hotel given as a complimentary visit after my disastrous Cape visit, at the Fire and Ice Cape Town, when somebody walked into my hotel room at 12 midnight demanding I leave the room....

Most of the rooms are okay. The rooms facing the lake have a stench and when housekeeping cleans them, they leave the windows open and you come back and find mosquitoes all over the room. But their lifts are always not working. The staff is friendly and accommodative.
