Have stayed at the Protea Wanderers on 3 occasions (1 night, 1 night, 3 nights). On all occasions found the rooms clean, staff very helpful, food and drink excellent.
I have stayed in both the standard and deluxe rooms and the only real difference is that the standard rooms are a little on the small size and the deluxe rooms are very large.
The food and drink in the restaurant and bars is very good, and the food / wine menus are extensive. Probably my one complaint would be that the breakfast is a bit over priced.
The complex feels very secure and at no time did I feel wary of Johannesburg’s crime reputation.
The pool area is nicely presented, but the pool doesn’t seem to get much sun and on two of the times that I stayed here was pretty cold to use.
The location is slightly out of the way and unless you are in town for the cricket (which is 300 yards away) you will need to use taxis or a hire car. But it is only 10 minutes or so in a car from Santon for shopping and nightlife.
We got a really good deal (GBP 40 for a twin room) per night and at that price the hotel was excellent value for money.
