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

I stayed two nights for work. Based on the first night's experience, I would have rated it one. The second night deserved a four. So, first it should be said that this is a conference hotel, and I don't see why anyone would want to go here for a holiday. Our welcome was extremely unfriendly. Cold, completely without smiles and... More

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
