My Fiancee and i stayed at this hotel on our way to Zimbabwe.
I must admit, we were chuffed at how close this hotel was to the Airport! The location is perfect. The complimentary shuttle to and from the Airport was fantastic. The driver was very friendly and
the hotel itself was lovely! Very clean and stylish. Comfortable beds in very decent sized guest rooms.
The price was our reason for staying at Protea. But i found it strange that although we pre paid for the hotel, we then had to pay additional tax when we were checking in.
My grumble with the hotel is that the service wasn't that great. We didn't feel welcome at all and it always felt like we were interrupting the staff. On the night we were staying, we decided to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant. When we went to pay at the counter, we waited for almost 10 minutes to be attended to.
I don't like to leave average feedback but unfortunately i did in this instance.
With that said, i wouldn't stay here again. There are plenty of other hotels in the Airport vicinity that would be better and more welcoming.
