Spent a night here and was impressed. Lovely decor, nice size bedroom with bath and shower. Really friendly staff, who recommended a local restaurant for a special dinner and even phoned to book a table for us. We ordered Cocktails by the pool which were great, but they did take a long time to arrive. Good breakfast the next morning.... More

Our room was very good and very clean. Security was very sharp and most attentive but after all this is South Africa so being safe is important. While our stay here was okay and satisfactory, we can not say the same for the Restaurant and the food. Standard of the food was below par, the service was okay, we did... More

There are a few options in Nelspruit but probably best is Protea. Stayed with 2 colleagues in June 2016 for 4 days. Great Stay. Breakfast pace at cooking station can improve. Buffet good but no variety. Enjoyed and was called after checking out that I left some things in the room. Great

Had quite a pleasant stay at the hotel. Big rooms, good wifi, pool, restaurant and friendly staff. The view I had from my room was watching over the road passing by, but was surprised with lovely thunderstorm later the evening. Breakfast can be a bit hectic during the peak hour - not all citizens respect personal space

This is a nice accommodation with friendly staff that are professional in what they do. The place is clean with a well kept pool and garden area. A bit secluded from Nelspruit town but close enough to also enjoy the African bush. The hotel provides wi-fi, parking, bar facility and a nice restaurant area for dinner or breakfast. If you...

I went to Protea Hotel Nelspruit yesterday with my friend to attend the meeting and we subsequently had breakfast. We arrived early and decided to have breakfast. The food was delicious and service excellent. It is out of town and gives you a feeling that you are on holiday far away. Try Protea Hotel for your next outing, you will... More

It is one of the best hotels in Nelspruit, I enjoyed my stay, clean rooms, peaceful and quite, great dinners and breakfast.
