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

I stayed at the Protea Hotel Nelspruit last night as part of a research trip for www.africa-deluxe-tours.com. In short I'm impressed with the hotel, provided that you know what you're getting. The hotel is graded 4-star by South Africa's Tourism Grading Council (TGCSA) and I believe that's an accurate reflection. The hotel features a dining room that's open to the... More

First time at this hotel. Went down for dinner to find no one interested in taking us to tables. We found tables ourselves but all the tables still had cutlery and plates from previous diners. After waiting and trying to get attention of waiter, he came over and after much pleading asked him to clear the table for us. It... More

We are runners and have done various races in the Nelspruit area and on all the occasions have we stayed at this hotel. Last weekend we returned again. If you are looking for spacious rooms, combined with great service and friendly staff, this is it. The hotel is also well located just off the N4 highway cutting through Nelspruit. The... More

The hotel is good for an overnight stay or a stay for business. The food was good, the rooms clean and the staff friendly, but its not something that will blow your mind away. It serves its purpose and that's enough.

Staff are friendly, but room not child friendly and don't try the room service, they say 45 mins and only come after 1 hr and 15 mins. They also get the order wrong EVERY time, even though they call to confirm. Breakfast was not a large selection for a 4* hotel, Kids enjoyed the pool and activities

We stayed 2 nights at the Protea Nelspruit and found it to be a good, comfortable stop over hotel. The rooms were perfectly clean, comfortable beds, quiet, but a little small for a family of 4 to share, and a little bare. It seemed to miss some cosy-ness. The outdoor area was lovely and we ate breakfasts and both dinners... More

On the one hand, this is a great location, i.e. close to the highway in and out of town. On the other hand, it's close to a highway and overlooks a gas station and KFC, or at least that was our view. Unfortunately when we were there the only rooms available were in the back and up a set of... More
