The visit was a quick one night stopover. The staff were very professional and helpful when required. Check in and check out were easy, and they helped me for my onward journey. There was a restaurant across the road that offered a range of meals.

Room Tip: I drove past this twice before noticing the hotel even though I was specifically looking for it.

We have been visiting George for many years. This is our first stay at Protea Hotel Outeniqua. Probably our best stay ever at any Protea hotel.
The hotel does not offer the best facilities compared to other hotels in the Protea group but has by far the friendliest reception staff I have ever encountered.
Well done!!!!! We will definitely return.

So after being stranded at George airport i was welcomed by Outeniqua Hotel with open arms. The Staff was extreamly helpful and provided me with everything i would need to have an unexpected over-night stay. The environment is stunning and the perfect tone was set for a peaceful nights rest and and the view is gorgeous.

We arrived at the Hotel to be greeted by the most amazing friendly Reception person I have met in a long time. The room was so clean and comfy , The breakfast was amazing and the staff , man they are just different , George as a whole is so nice and the air is so clean and clear just Like this amazing Hotel . We were given the Restaurants across the street from the hotel that you can order your Dinner in or Just stroll across the road to have dinner details , and when I arrived back home I found that I had lost my Jacket ( A present from my son in America) I was heartbroken but one call to the hotel and I was notified that they had found it and arranged to send it back overnight . Wow its was amazing worth the jitter I had about flying ,
