4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

Reception was very welcoming. The rooms where very comfortable. However, the late night party goers at the bar kept us up till late with the noise. Breakfast was excellent. The variety and the friendliness of the staff was great. The views over the Orange river was very impressive.

Here with work and been put in the room under the stairs...honestly it's embarrassing,it's like being in a broom cupboard! The view from the barred window (looking forward to getting through that in a fire) is of breeze blocks and pidgeon feaces ,plumbing and air conditioning pipes. There's no light above the shower just bare wires....nice how water and electricity... More

We booked in for one night en route back to Cape Town. The hotel was obviously renovated recently. Well done with this. But this is unfortunately where it stopped. Front-desk service excellent, but we had such a bad experience in the restaurant. The problem would have easily been solved if there was a manager on call to cushion incidents like... More

We stayed here for one night in May 2014. The recently renovated hotel was in excellent condition and the service was superb. There is secure parking and clean, spacious rooms. All in all, we're glad we chose this hotel.

There is nothing much that can go wrong with a Protea Hotel. Upington's Protea Hotel was fairly priced, without a doubt the best place to stay in the town. Food was very good, although it was slightly on the expensive side. However not more expensive than other hotel's room service. Rooms are amazing. Well kitted. Super Clean.

Hotel now very beautifully renovated inside, just small things that still needs to be finalized, like paintwork etc. Service still as good as always. Staff very friendly & quick. The new restaurant inside is also very beautifully renovated with new furniture etc. Food & menu is very good: better than the franchise restaurant just next to the hotel we used... More

Very frieindly and efficient staff always willing to assist. Good linen and coffee machine in rooms. Restaurant: Needs to improve service and serve HOT meals which for two nights in a row became a bad experience

As a returning guest, service and check in was disappointing. The hotel was virtually fully booked and the previously good experience remained just a memory. No soap or body wash available in the room. No consistent connectivity with the Wifi. A ridiculous fee of R18 for a cup of coffee!!! I will be exploring guest houses for my next trip.
