First time over night visit to this hotel - Very confused upon arrival with notice "Do not bring your luggage inside" Shooooo are we not welcome here or will some special luggage trolley collect our 1 only sleep-over bag? So many positives that it totally overlook the minor mishaps but left an uncertain taste to return. Excellent view over the... More

y wife and I together with our 2 small children stayed at this hotel during July 2014. This Protea Hotel did my favourite hotel group proud with graet facilities and modern,mspacious rooms. The rooms are well planned, not a typical 'stack' hotel set-up, but rather blocks of 4 units per block, separate from the reception areas of the hotel. We... More

After a very chilly reception (and complete refusal to allow me to check in 25 minutes early (after 1.30pm), the hotel redeemed itself with beautiful mountain views and really good food. Rooms are small and fairly basic, but comfortable for short stays. I left a cellphone charger behind, and having it found and kept always endears a hotel to me... More

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...
