Good Afternoon,
We spent the weekend at Protea Hotel King George the 29th November – 1st December, we stayed in room 417.
I would just like to compliment ALL the staff at Protea Hotel King George for an awesome stay. From the moment we walked in and met the two smiling friendly ladies at reception, to the very minute that we had to check out, we were treated like royalty and every one of the staff had a smile to share!!
The breakfast and service in the restaurant was excellent, the food was amazing, we felt like sitting there all day. The atmosphere was just great! The room service and cleaning staff was just as amazing! We would leave to have breakfast and then return to a beautiful clean bedroom.
I would recommend the Protea Hotel King George to anyone who was visiting George.
Thank you for an amazing stay and extraordinary service!! We will definitely be visiting again soon.

I brought in a group of Indian clients to the King George Hotel which is situated in a residential area of George, Western Cape and were recieved with a warm welcome. Once we checked in we went to our rooms and I was pleasantly surprised to find a very comfortable room with all the amenities. The television had a generous amount of channels and there was facilities for coffee and tea to be made.
Dinner and breakfast were al carte and very tasty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All my clients were happy with there two day stay there. A few minor problems though, the wifi, which 500megs were given free, was very weak in the rooms and in some cases non existent.
The other thing was the windows in the bathroom and toilet are large and made a few of my clients feel a bit exposed even though it was frosted glass.
Apart from that. ..a magic place to stay.
Just a last note that if you need to go to the stores you will need transport as the hotel is located outside the town.

We had a one night stay over before our flight back home. This hotel is situated on a golf course with stunning mountain views. Really friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money. The rooms are a bit dated in the main building, yet still comfortable and we found it very clean.

I have stayed in many hotels accross the globe. This hotel was poor value for money and deserves no more that one star. There was a clear absence on management presence and the reception staff were unresponsive, with a poor attitude and badly trained.

I was a little apprehensive about staying in a hotel because I stopped this long ago as I do not like being confined to one room. I was pleasantly surprised by the large room I got with two queen beds, a huge flat screen, a desk, hairdryer, a bath with aseparate shower and to top it all a huge balcony with a garden table and four chairs! Quite impressive I have to say although these might be standard to those who use hotels, it was an incredible experience for me and the breakfasr was just as wonderful! I will definitely think about stating at an hotel again after this lovely experience. oh not to forget the beautiful grounds and the golf course.
