We booked two rooms on the 12 December for a night in Nelspruit on route to Kruger National Park. Staff were pleasant and helpful and willingly stored our perishables in the freezer. Rooms are comfortable and of a high standard. The hotel is perfectly positioned to tour all the attractions Nelspruit has to offer. It is on route whether you... More

We stayed here two nights. This is a well managed establishment. Comfortable beds, solid internet connection, well appointed bathrooms, and outdoor areas seemed to be a notch above the other Proteas. We'll stay here again.

I arrived at this hotel at 8.30pm starving hungry. Bit what a disappointing meal! I ordered a T-bone steak that must have been sitting in the kitchen for hours. It was tasteless and tired, much like the attitude of the waitress who served it. Very comfortable room and bed.

I stayed because we were having a conference at the venue. The check in was efficient and the staff are really friendly and courteous. The room was nice and big and clean. However, there are two disappointing events that I cannot accept at a four star hotel. I ordered a vegetarian salad, as per menu, no mention of meat only... More

Being the first time to Nelspruit Protea, I wasn't expecting much. However I was pleasantly surprised by the good service and hospitality at the hotel. Quick friendly check-in, and ample WIFI was appreciated. The hotel is conveniently located near a little shopping complex includinga supermarket (which is halaal), and a petrol station. A masjid is within earshot -a quick walk... More

This was my second trip to Protea Nelspruit and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff is super friendly and they add a wonderful personal touch for their clients. The kitchen staff was always willing to prepare special request meals for me. Their breakfast buffet is one of the best I have had and the dinner buffet is equally delicious. I... More

We stayed for one night en route from the Kruger to the Drakensberg. Its a typical business hotel but was perfect for us as a family. Rooms were a good size and everything we needed was there. We ate in the restaurant in the evening - OK, but the waiter service was a bit disorganized. Breakfast was pretty good. I... More
