Dear Traveller I had an excellent time here. Breakfast was good, enjoyed the buffet. One thing though you have to walk outside to go to the dining area. Service was great and the rooms were full of charm. I was here in winter. The Panel heaters were on. Our team actually felt a bit toasty even in the thick of... More

The hotel is at best a 3 star hotel. Functional at best. The staff was very good but the room and food was at very best average. I would never go there on a vacation for sure. I stayed in a 1 br suite and it was bare, walls empty, the smell of smoke everywhere. While my room seemed to... More

Even though the "lake" the hotel is supposedly on has been drained for years they still call the hotel "Waterfront". But, more importantly, I would totally use this hotel again. Magnificent breakfast buffet, clean rooms, comfortable beds, great customer service. What's not to love? Light bulb burned out in bathroom "BAM" they fixed it. Fresh in-house purified bottled water brought... More

This bed with these pillows was heavenly. I have to have those pillows. Have to have them. I read the reviews before I got there and it seems others had a problem with the desk staff, I did not.

I helped facilitate a conference at the Protea and felt lucky to be given a suite for 5 days. The room was nice and quite. Unfortunately it was Wintertime and the hotel was not well insulated so I never got my room to a good temperature. Additionally, I had to walk out side to go to all meals in the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 days prior to our South Africa Tour.

Best to get a tour company - very expensive- instead. Most of the places that we went to... More

Stayed in Protea Waterfront for a week in October 2011. I had a self catering apartment, which means you have a comfortable living room, nice bedroom.
