“Excellent”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

This hotel continues to please. The service is excellent, the genuine South African cuisine is good and plentiful, the rooms are well appointed and clean, the staff friendly and the location is excellent. A brilliant hotel to stay in when on business in Gauteng.

I stay in this hotel every week for work. Last week I stayed in the worst room in this hotel. Aircon was very noisy and ineffective in cooling the room. The shower in the bathroom was flooding the enitre bathroom and made everything wet. When I booked out, the receptionist was complaining non stop to a fellow colleague about her 'sh1tty' shifts...! Breakfast is overpriced at R155 and there should be a corporate option for business travellers that just want a small quick bite before leaving for meetings.

I was very impressed with this hotel - excellent all around - will definitely stay here again. From check in to check out everything went smoothly - beds are perfect, very clean, quiet and exceptionally friendly staff.

The hotel is very well placed close to the cricket stadium and Melrose Arch Mall . It is home to both leisure and business travelers and can be busy . The front desk staff are extremely friendly and are more than happy to help with all requests . As I have stayed at the hotel a few times it was nice to find a welcome letter in the room from the GM Miss Jones . The rooms are a nice size with all the amenities you could ask for and a few magazines to read during downtime . The breakfast at the hotel is vast and plentiful with everything any normal person could want from a breakfast buffet . There is also a gym and a pool at the hotel . Only small criticism was that my room service order was forgotten and I had to go down stairs to find out what had happened to it after a patient hour wait .

Looking forward to my next stay at this hotel soon .

I came with two colleagues to attend a workshop at this hotel. I was very happy with the service provided. Staff are very nice and pretty fast. I loved that they give an apple evey day (hotel theme).

Location is good. Very easy to reach many attractions. Food is great and I found it pretty cheap.

I recommend this hotel.

I stayed with my mother at the Wanderers Protea hotel in Johannesburg for one night as part of a group tour of South Africa. The hotel is a typical chain hotel: it is slightly anonymous. Rooms are clean but very small: two people with two reasonably big suitcases would find it hard to move around. Staff at the reception was a little stiff even if quite ready to help. Staff in the restaurant was very helpful.

Stayed one night on business, attended a reception next door in Wanderers club house. The room was very well appointed for a traditional budget style hotel, very comfortable bed, feather pillows and all the trimmings. Bathroom was spotlessly clean and a few essentials soaps etc readily available. Tea and coffee making facilities in room and TV with desk and internet access. The first 1MB of internet free which was more than adequate although a little difficult to log in.
Breakfast was both plentiful and first class as well as the service.

Room Tip: Ground floor from rooms 3 - 16 close to reception, no lifts needed and quick access. I was in room 1...
