“A def. Come back”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Me and my bf had a wonderful time, it was great I was a bit dissipointed on the way the phone was opperrated when I phoned in tofind out about the rates the other day, but when we got there I feld at home, I was surpriced tho, the morning before we checked out, I'm not sure if it was a cleaner or a guy from the other room,he opend one of the doors that was linked to our room not knowing if there were people or not it was still early round about 8:00! I think action needs to be taken there make sure those doors are locked at all tyms... Not everyone checks out at 10. Other then that we had more then fun ill def go back!!!

we stayed here after our previous hotel was a let down, and choose here for the pool and good rates (R450) its clean and modern but the rooms need maintenance. ground floor rooms are the only non smoking which is disappointing considering your in the middle of the city and i didn't feel comfortable staying on the ground floor. We had a smoking double on the 2nd floor, it was small with many maintenance issues, the safe didn't work, the window we had to force shut and the air conditioning unit clicked and banged so much we turned it off. we moved to another room the following afternoon which was interconnecting, a surprise as we hadn't been told it would be and for some i would imagine that wouldn't be appreciated. Bar staff were friendly although drinks over priced R23 for Hunters Gold, R16 for 330ml coke can,breakfast we didnt have as also believed it was over priced at R130+. Reception staff were the least friendly.
Pool area is clean and nice but not used by many. The hotels in a busy area with a short drive to main shopping centre Menlyn.

Room Tip: ask for a room over looking the pool to avoid road/barbed wire views !

Got this on a Prokard voucher, so I only paid R147.60 for a room worth around R850.00 . I booked the cheapest room and as a Prokard member I requested a free upgrade and I actually got it! It was a beautiful room (deluxe, when I'd booked for a twin) with two big mirrors and a bath. The retrofit shower, however, was a disaster, spilling water all over the bathroom floor! They committed to fix that.

I'm not impressed with Protea hotels' standard pricing, but what you definitely get for the price is consitency; Protea is the only hotel chain that has always met a certain set standard, no matter which of their hotels you use.

Incidentally, across the road you get Moning Star Express hotel, which is quite OK itself if you want to pay less than the usual standard Protea rates.
