Spent a night en route to the Kruger Park. Very comfortable and the pool must be great in the summer. The location looks disappointing but once you enter the hotel, that doesn't matter at all. The staff were friendly, warm and welcoming. Just disappointed with the buffets at dinner and breakfast - dishes not well seasoned. Would probably still stay... More

I was initially allocated a smoking room, but this was immediately rectified by the friendly reception staff. The second floor outlook was directly onto the main road, although the noise did not detract from a good night's sleep. The room was comfortable and spacious, similar to the standard of other Protea hotels. The buffet dinner and breakfast were standard fare,... More

Was put in Room 203 which had people all night long talking in corridor. Following morning the corridor was full of cables and paint and doors taken of hinges and drilling in rooms, a nightmare from hell. I informed reception who showed no interest in my problem, so I checked out. Food in Restaurant was cold and meat full of... More

I used this hotel as a stopping place so I could have an early morning start in the Kruger park. Lives up to the protea standard with friendly service. The food was okay, the rooms were really comfortable. I will stay here again.

Nelspruit has nothing to offer, but at least it is a gateway to Kruger. I slept one night in this hotel and it is comfortable, nice rooms, good breakfast and helpful staff. The rooms are clean and the entrance is little bit hard to find.

The stay at the hotel was comfortable. The room I was in generous and clean. The staff helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is just outside of the town and under an hours drive to The Kruger National Park.

The location is easy to find, not far from the centre of town and near a small shopping centre. The entrance is guarded and the parking is free. Check in was professional and pleasant. Our stay, however, did not start very well as we were given a room in the building where they had a huge water leak some days... More

That is what they make you do. You wait and wait for table service in the restaurant at dinner and at breakfast. Of all the Protea hotels we have stayed in on our round of South African Provincial cities this has been the most unpleasant of stay. All because of the waiting and waiting, time is no matter to some... More

I stayed at this Hotel while on business trip in January 2015. This was not my first visit to this Hotel, as I usually stay here when coming to Nelspruit. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the management of the Hotel makes you feel welcome from the start with a welcome card personally addressed to you. I ordered... More
