I have had a great stay at the hotel during innibos arts festival. The rooms are luxury the staff very friendly and really great service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and i will definitely be back. This is one of the reasons i always stay in protea hotels. A fine example of a well managed hotel.

The hotel keeps up with the standard expected at a Protea Hotel. The hotel is located on a busy road, yet you don't hear the traffic, or I always receive a good room. My stay has always only been for business and on an occasion my room was changed, because I complained about the bed. I did not receive any... More

Clean hotel, with friendly staff. Room was a little small. Bathroom neat and clean. More TV channels for kids should be considered. Noise levels were high despite a request for a room in a quite area. Well located and very convenient for over night stay.

I was inevitably cast into my own horror movie by Protea Hotel Nelspruit. This being my 1st and last (unless it is the last hotel in the galaxy). I think false advertising should be left to used car salesmen in that dodgy alley behind that dodgy street not a brand i thought was esteemed like Protea. I arrived there on... More

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.
