The shuttle service that fetched me from the airport was great. Driver was friendly and obeyed all of the rules of the road. I couldnt get the aircon working in the room - had to phone twice and eventually after 1 hour and just before midnight the maintenance man arrived to sort out the problem. 30 minutes later the aircon...

Convenient location for my needs - functional and practical are best adjectives. The room has a great desk area to work and the rooms are comfortable. Free wifi is fast. The chips and chocolate waiting in my room were a nice touch. Thank you! The restaurant, Emanzinis, has quite a limited menu. The vegetable curry was tasty but sadly they... More

Close to Gautrain station with free shuttle to and from the hotel. Staff friendly enough and buffet dinner better than most Proteas. I did however not appreciate view into 8 aircons. (I believe however I was lucky as the contaminated river view was no better). Also fact that one set of lifts as well as full set toilets were out... More

A month ago I had business to attend to in Pretoria. Had a colleague with me and we had to share a room. It's a bit small when sharing with some one that's not ur wife or husband. Basin in the room is also not a nice touch. I'm sure if you stay on your own its a great room.... More

Dear Divan V Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback here on our TripAdvisor site. It is not always easy sharing any hotel room with a colleague, and I can understand fully why your sleeping arrangements were not satisfactory. Our standard rooms are on the larger side compared to most hotels in Pretoria (25sqm), however sharing is... More

Stayed here for two weeks on a business trip. Throughout that time the service and staff were consistently good. Room serviced to a high standard every day and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was superb with a huge range of food and everything very fresh. I ate dinner and had room service a couple of times and that... More

I stayed at the Protea Centurion for a week, and must compliment the staff for excellent service. They quickly learn guests' names, and their preferences, and go out of their way to make guests comfortable. The rooms are clean, airy and comfortable. There is a sizeable work station, and free wifi of course.Views over the lake are a bonus. Meals... More

Nice and easy for a quick business lunch. Good selection on the buffet but you also have an al la cart option. They get busy at lunchtimes, so get there early to avoid queuing. Nice outside seating areas by the pool. Clean, cosy and value for money
