Great hotel, huge rooms, huge showers. Clean. Beautiful view. Great breakfast buffet. The only down fall is, it is next to a shopping mall, but difficult to find the entrance even with GPS. Free shuttle service.

I had to spend a night in Centurion in order to speak at a Conference. The hotel is really delightful. Superb welcome and easy check in. Great restaurant for a really good steak and a very good breakfast first thing the next morning. Staff need to be commended on their professional service.

It's a good hotel. You know exactly what to expect and it delivers. The staff are very friendly and the food is top tier. The hotel is located right next to the mall so that's convenient. The studio room we were in had no view of the lake.

I have stayed here a couple of times, and the rooms are neat, service is good, food ok but there is something about it that makes me feel unsatisfied when I leave... All experiences have been forgettable but because it is a Protea Hotel, I always come back. There is no wow factor.
