Recently attended a conference and enjoyed superb service, excellent snacks and a delicious meal with a large variety of dishes. Great stuff are made of this! The staff are well trained and equipped to deliver their best. Worthwhile visiting.

This hotel was a great surprise to me. I use to go there a lot in the 70's and it was turned into something really nice. Very good service. Rooms also very nice. Unfortunately the setting in the middle of the city is not the best.

We visit this hotel during May. We stayed 3 nights. The rooms are well kept and tidy with enough space for two people. Bathrooms are a bit small and the shower in the bath is uncomfortable to say the least. For a 3 star hotel one wouldnt expect the bath/shower combo. The rates are very well priced at R 330... More

We spent our honeymoon here! Can you imagine that? And it was fabulous. The room service and elegant bar were just what we needed. The rooms themselves are so comfortable and we had privacy. Spent many hours by the pool. The best part is we could leave anytime and go into town for metropolitan shopping and bar hopping. It was... More

The room was comfortable, clean and spacious but we spent a Saturday night in this hotel and unfortunately we had some noisy neighbours which resulted in an interrupted night’s sleep. We enjoyed a very nice lunch next to the pool and the service was good but not exceptional.

The hotel was a delight, the service excellent, the room clean and appealing. The bed very comfortable and everything worked. The room service was prompt and delicious Would definitely recommend it for travellers needing to be in the CBD, I felt very safe in the area once the hotel premises were entered

I have been staying in Protea Capital Hotel for almost 10months and the service they provide is out of this world. To start with cleaners up to the top Management. The smile they wear the day of arrival is always there. The room is forever clean and the food is yummy. The reception is very warm and welcoming.
