Trying to get a last minute weekend booking in Franschhoek is difficult, and we were lucky that the Protea had a room – every other hotel and B&B we’d tried were fully booked. Everything about our stay was fine; the staff were good, the room clean and comfortable, there was a decent bathroom, etc. But the whole place is like... More

A really nice hotel in a lovely little town. The hotel is quiet, clean and pleasing. It is handy to shops, supermarket, etc. which are just across the road. The food is excellent and the staff are polite and helpful. I enjoyed a few days wandering around the quiet wee town sightseeing and of course it is in the middle... More

This hotel provides a wonderful welcoming place to stay when first arriving in South Africa. The rooms are all beautifully situated around the central gardens and swimming pool and are furnished to a high standard. Although travelling with a friend, we had single rooms but those allocated to us were no different to those with double occupancy, which is so... More

This lovely hotel is far more intimate than most. The rooms are configured in a square (minus one side) on two floors with the swimming pool and grounds in the centre. The rooms are spacious, clean & with nice linens. The bathroom was large & had a separate tub. The buffet hot & cold was delicious. This hotel is close... More

We really wanted to escape the hustle-bustle of New Years eve with our young children, so as a last minute option, we were able to secure the last room at this hotel. Booking I was getting different room profiles from an aggregator website, when compared to the hotel's direct website, so I decided to call the hotel directly (rather than... More

This is a good hotel that is well placed in Franschhoek. It is very much in the centre of the tourist area thus making it easy to walk to all the main attractions. The rooms are clean, spacious and well maintained and the buffet style breakfast is good. The pool is a decent size although it has little protection from... More

The Franschhoek Protea is pleasant enough but over-rated. I had a small room on the front of the hotel with furniture that just got in the way. The street was noisy and there was no sound insulation in the windows. Breakfast was OK although the staff were annoyingly keen to clear plates, glasses, cups, cutlery and anything else you weren't... More
