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...

Found this hotel easily just of the main road, but would think you would need a car to stay here as its a fair way from town. Check in was a bit haphazed but everyone was friendly and pleasent. The room and hotel facilites are better than expected and than they look on the website, our room was massive with... More

When registering for a botanical conference in Stellenbosch, we found the university residence unsuitable for a couple so the conference organizers found alternative accommodation at the Protea Stellenbosch, about 10 km from town. We found this was a wonderful retreat after the busy activity of the conference, with excellent food at two restaurants, a clean and very comfortable room, and... More
