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

We had a group of international guests who arrived before international conference and some stayed after the conference at the Protea Hotel Stellenbosch Techno Park. It is a great location with lovely rooms - we stayed in the luxury rooms which were a little better than the standard rooms. Breakfast was great with magnificent views.

Stayed in this hotel for almost a week in late januari/early februari. The hotel grounds contains multiple buildings. The main building upfront houses the reception, restaurant, bar, etc. Further down the grounds are the buildings that contain the rooms, up to 8 per building. Access is on the outside, rooms on the upper floor have stairs only. The furthest buildings... More

This Protea is a few km's out of town but very easy to get to. It has lovely views and well-furnished rooms for its rating. Service was a bit chaotic at times but the staff were generally very friendly. My only real complaint was how noisy the rooms were. Although set up in small blocks, the amount of external noise...
