Our flight was cancelled and we were put up in the Protea Hotel from about midnight. The head chef stayed back to cook us an amazing supper and the bar opened to allow us to have a drink. The staff were friendly and very accommodating, as we stayed up until about 2am. Great service. Thank you.

Hotel has gone down the toilet. Dirty room, broken safe and hairdryer. No sheets on the bed. Duvet just thrown over mattress protector. Asked manager to fix and wasn’t. Eventually asked for new room.

I have stayed here for over twenty years and this is the worst I’ve ever had. Service at breakfast was slow and the selection is half the Buffett as before at more expensive price. Horribly disappointed. Read less

Stayed in this hotel while visiting Johannesburg for the first time and absolutely loved it. Everything is gated so any rental cars you have at night are monitored and safe. The hotel is super clean, the staff attentive and friendly and the complimentary breakfast for those with elite status is phenomenal. Looking forward to staying here again!

Checked into the hotel on the 4th with my partner, second time here and WOW what a huge difference after the renovations! Deli and pool deck is especially incredible, had a drink overlooking the bowling greens and wonderful extended view of Johannesburg. We stayed in a larger room, not sure what the differences are to the normal rooms. I did have to ask Robert at the deli for a menu, and he brought a card with a code for you to scan with your cellphone camera and see the menu digitally, what a great idea to limit contact during these times. One tip - request a room facing the Wanderers club, the road side does get a bit noisy. Cannot wait to go back! Read less
