We stayed at the Protea Hatfield Apartments from the 10th – 13th July 2008 and then had one further night on the 14th/15th July 2008. My party consisted of two adults and two children (aged 9 and 7 years).
We arrived at the Protea Hotel Hatfield Apartments and were given a warn welcome by the Front Desk Manager, Mr Rabhelani Moyo. We were efficiently checked in and escorted to a two-bedroom apartment. The apartment was perfectly adequate and clean. The swimming pool, which looks massive on their literature, is in fact very small. However it is far too cold to swim outdoors at this time of year anyway! The main entrance to the Apartments has a security guard on duty. There is sufficient parking within the complex.
The Protea Hatfield Apartments are centrally located in this University area of Pretoria. A pedestrian entrance leads from the Apartments out into Burnett Street. There are many restaurants within a five-minute walk of this property. The nearby Hatfield Plaza (Burnett St) contains a shopping centre and across the street is Hatfield Square with its bars and restaurants. There is an inexpensive Internet Café next to Mimmos Restaurant on Burnett Street, just as well as I couldn’t pick up WiFi. There is also an Engen Petrol Station at the corner of Duncan & Burnett streets.
The Apartments proved a useful base from which to explore the sights of Pretoria, such as Union Buildings and the Voortrekker Monument. You really need a hire car for this purpose.
I have no real complaints about the Apartments, however it does get rather cold at night. I had problems with my American Express card when paying for accommodation. Management had to put the payment through manually. This problem was replicated at other Protea properties during our family holiday in South Africa.
