The hotel is just off the N1 freeway in Samrand, the reception was a bit slow when we checked in on a Friday night. The room we got was carpeted and it only had a shower no bath. They clean and change the sheets everyday. They only put 1 bath and 1 hands towel, if you want more you have...

This is a small business hotel tucked away in the relatively new business district of Samrand, just off the N1 highway between Johannesburg and Pretoria, convenient for access to Midrand and Centurion. The small conference room and adjacent restaurant can accommodate groups of up to 20, depending on the layout. Food and other refreshments are excellent, service is friendly but...

Samrand Protea is one of my favourite Protea Hotels because it is cheaper than most other Protea Hotels without sacrificing quality and good service. I like the big rooms and safe parking. What I do not like is that sometimes you get very noisy guests. On my last stay 2 guest were talking very loud outside in front of my...

Accommodation is clean and spacious, well appointed rooms at a reasonable rate. Nice working area in the room, restaurant on location is also very good, supper to order from a comprehensive menu. Buffet breakfast is excellent. Overall service was more than excellent, staff are very helpful and concerned. they also have a conference room which has a nice outside area.

We recently stayed at this neat hotel which is about midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria. It is not "right next to a big mall" - but this is a sort of attraction. It is a quiet hotel very convenient to the N1 freeway which takes you quickly to wherever you may need to be. The hotel is very well maintained...

Nice cosy hotel nestled in Midrand next to the highway. I was preparing for a speaking engagement in Centurion and Braamfontein on Sunday morning. I had time and space to prepare privately for my speaking. I was particularly impressed with the courtesy at reception, the patience and commitment of staff in explaining the changes in the hotel. I would definitely...

Situated almost midway between Pretoria and Joberg this was an impressive hotel with extremely efficient and friendly staff.

The restaurant serves a good range of meals and while I don't recommend the vegetarian platter I would very much recommend the...

I was pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the room and shower. There was also 100 MB free wifi. I liked the 2 bed set-up and the decor with pictures hung on the wall above the beds. I had an issue though with the air-conditioning unit which just could not get my room warm even after the house-keep promised me...

When a large group makes a reservation then this hotel's management should lay down the rules. I've stayed here for one night with a large group of people who came with a bus.
