My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights during a recent visit to Stellenbosch. The check in was incredibly friendly and efficient and our room was large, clean and comfortable.The hotel is well situated and we were out of the crush that descends upon Stellenbosch in the weeks leading up to the start of the University year.

I spent four days in the Stellenbosch Hotel in mid-January 2015 and left with a feeling of disappointment. For three days I had no hot water in my ground floor room (which otherwise was excellent). Three times I reported the problem to reception and, after a nil response, emailed the manager asking for a 20% reduction off my booking fee.... More

We stayed at this hotel two or three years ago and were quite happy with the accommodation. We returned recently and were disappointed. The rooms were not as nice as we remembered them to be and in need of a makeover. We stayed in an 'upgraded room' with more room than we needed, but the bedroom was sad with only... More

We stayed at the Protea Hotel over the December holiday. We stayed there for 7 days, and we loved it. Wonderful breakfast, lots to do for kids, friendly staff and our rooms were perfectly cleaned everyday! This is really a hotel that we would recommend. The bonus is of course the great location of the hotel, near great restaurants and... More

Initially planned to stay just 3 nights but extended for an additional night. Was the best decision to choose this hotel. It truly is a gem. Staff are incredibly accommodating and pleasant. Only gripe would be that some of the food at the restaurant is frozen and not fresh. Otherwise, splendid hotel!

I stayed here for 2 nights while travelling around SA. I loved everything about it and the hosts were fantastic and just couldn't do enough for you. A little zoo/farm alongside with wild birds etc was nice to see and be part of the feeding etc. The rooms were spacious and I loved the bathroom. Fridge was well stocked and... More

Great place to stay in Stellenbosch for the price. It is well located to a lot of the top wineries. The room is very large and clean. A nice hot breakfast was included as was in-room WiFi. For the price, it cant be beat. I would definitely stay here again. Caveat - this is not a high, end luxury hotel... More

A comfortable overnight stay, nothing exceptional but no complaints either. We got a upgraded room with self catering area and separate sitting area so an ideal place for stop-over whilst in the Stellenbosch area.

You know when you book into a Protea that you are getting a 4 star experience. So this location delivers solidly on that proposition. The selling features of this hotel are its rooms and its location. The rooms are massive by conventional hotel standards and often you can get upgraded to a one bedroom suite. It is ideal if you...

The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the mountains. The rooms are quite big and has a self catering option which may be nice for longer stays. Families cal also be well accommodated as two rooms can be booked together behind another outside door. My experience over the phone was quite good with the hotel. I was however very... More
