The International Drilling contractor has started booking us to overnight at the Protea Timba prior to our last flight to George in the early morning.
Personally I am delighted & my sentiment is shared by the others.
It is an intriguing hotel, definitely & decidedly different decor with a really nice pool area.
The Staff are about as friendly & helpful as possible. Very nice restaurant with excellent service & a goodly supply of cold beer.
The airport shuttle service was quick & efficient, but what is most impressive is the absolute cleanliness everywhere throughout the hotel.
Since we will be drilling gas wells in South Africa for the next 3 years, I am so glad the company decided to book us in this modern upscale very nice hotel.
