The Protea Hotel Stellenbosch is set in a beautiful location I sometimes forgot that I was actually on a business trip. I stayed in a deluxe room for three days which is very spacious with a lounge area and kitchenette that overlooks the Kleine Zalze estate. The kitchenette is equipped with a mini bar fridge, microwave and kettle with cutlery... More

I was most impressed with this Hotel. Not knowing what to expect, we loved the rooms, they are all small units with a lovely big bedroom, kichenette and lounge area. Our rate unfortunately excluded breakfast so we did not have the opportunity to use the restaurant but the rest of the hotel and the grounds were very nice and well... More

I stayed at the Protea Hotel for a one night stay recently as part of a longer trip and it was great. We arrived as part of a big group and check in was done very efficiently. The breakfast was lovely with a great view. Staff were always helpful. The rooms were good, basic and maybe in need of a... More

Very nicely appointed hotel, nice apartment style executive suites, with ample space for both adults and children. Peaceful and quiet, and king size beds with crisp percale linen. Clean rooms with small kitchen. TV selection a bit limited, but enjoyed having 2 TV's and lounge. Special breakfast for group could've been better, as there were 3 families (12 people) with... More

Our first stay at the Protea Stellenbosch was a bit disappointing. On arrival we were told that the Spa was closed for the weekend as well as the beauty salon because it was long weekend. The food for dinner had very limited choices, the buffet had chicken, no red meats as well as Ostrich Pie. Vegetables and rice. The salad... More

This is rated a 3 * hotel and is in Techno Park. We booked the hotel to attend a wedding at a nearby wine farm. What a surprise. The room was spacious with immaculate white linen. An enormous swimming pool and hot tub is available with a view of a wetland outside of the fence. The surrounding mountains are magnificent.The... More

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and once again we did enjoy it. A big problem when we arrived at our room was the smell, the carpets had obviously been washed and had not dried out so there was that miffy/damp smell; we left doors and windows open and by evening when we got back from supper...

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel and overall it had very strong points and some small details that bothered me a little. The positive, bed was great, super comfortable and the quality of sleep is really excellent. Breakfast is really good for a 3 stars and the service is nice. The buffet dinner also has good variety and it... More

This is about Dorpshuis Protea as apparently more than one Protea in Stellenbosch. Booked through the Stellenbosch tourist office (which can highly recommend excellent service) but the hotel gave us a bad first impression as they seemed bewildered by the booking process. The deposit is taken by the tourist office and we have done this before and other establishments don't... More

I visited the hotel as part of an International Sales meeting - I flew in from Dubai. The hotel resembles a small gated community, with separate houses, each one subdivided into the hotel rooms. Mine was very comfortable and easily transformed into my office with my laptop and complimentary wifi. The restaurant, bar and meeting rooms were fine and I... More
