My colleague and I arrived with five cases and would have expected a bell-boy to at least offer help but no such staff member appeared. The initial welcome from the check-in desk was nice but then with a confirmed reservation for two rooms at the Protea Roodepoort, you have to ask yourself why the check-in process took 40 minutes. The check-in clerk seemed to be clueless. Only one of the two rooms reserved had been entered into their system.
Room is OK, reasonably spacious, but basic. No wardrobe or drawers, just a small hanging rail. Bathroom is perhaps the best feature of the room, although still a no frills experience.
Internet (up to 100mb) is included in the cost of the room which is a bonus, although accessing the service was a mission in itself, requiring half a dozen calls and eventually a visit to the front desk.
Use the shuttle service if travelling to the airport, the taxi fare will set you back ZAR700.
