Good sized rooms with two three quarter beds. Shower a bit small but in general well appointed. Dinner was adequate but nothing special at R185 a bit on the steep side. Breakfast was good. The service was good and the hotel well located.

You pretty much know what you'll get when booking a Protea Hotel, and this hotel is no different. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. And with good value for money as well. However, charging 185 zar for breakfast pr. person is really expensive, so we didn't try. We did try the hotel restaurant and must say I wasn't impressed.... More

Stayed one night with family after flying into Nelspruit from Joburg. All rooms very clean, modern, comfortable. Food and drink in the hotel restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and polite. Excellent for a short stay.

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.

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...
