The hotel is lovely. Beautiful views and the staff are friendly and helpful. Good food at the both restaurant. Close to various wine estates and amenities. However wifi signal in the room was poor. Couldn't get a good signal. That was a letdown. However a great place to stay.

We have stayed over at the Protea Stellenbosch on several occasions over the past number of years. We have always been very happy with the service and the quality of the accommodation, and the same goes for the food. The great thing is that they are constantly improved their quality all around. Definitely my favorite local Protea!

Wonderful stay at a beautiful hotel. Amazing staff! Friendly service all around. Went the extra mile to change my booking on the last night to a different Protea hotel as my business meetings moved to another part of the city! Would definitely stay there again.

I would not recommend this hotel to a friend. I stayed there because I needed wireless access for a videoconference shortly after concluding a business meeting that was near the hotel. The problem was that although there was an enjoy WIFI sign at my door the network was spotty at best. I had to do the meeting in the restaurant.... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife during a trade fair that was also held on the premises. The rooms are in the process of being upgraded and modernised and we were fortunate enough to stay in one of these. Well laid out with just a shower in a very small bathroom. I found the hotel staff exceptionally... More

This is an excellent hotel, central for the Stellenbosch vineyard tours. We had a lovely suite with a kitchenette, massive comfy bed a lovely sitting room. The breakfast was also first class (buffet style).

We found the hotel to be as good as it had been in the past. Friendly and efficient staff as always. We stayed in a large and well appointed suite in which it is possible to undertake limited self catering, should one so wish. There are nice views from the bedrooms and public spaces. The hotel is extremely convenient for... More

The hotel is not really a hotel, hotel in the sense of the fact that the buildings are not in a hotel setup but looks more like Villas, which I think gives you more privacy, well that’s in my opinion. The luxury rooms are close to the reception and restaurant area and is really luxury, the finishes are much more... More

My wife won an overnight stay. We were attending a wedding in Stellenbosch so decided to use the voucher and make Protea Hotel our base. We checked two hours before the wedding to freshen up and were pleasantly surprised when entering the room. We had some remorse that we were not spending more time at the hotel itself. The room...
