This hotel was bright, had modern rooms and was very clean. It was built around the swimming pool with all ground floor rooms accessing this area. It was within very easy walking distance to all restaurants and shops etc. We ate at the Hussar Restaurant in the evening and it was excellent. Breakfast next morning was also very good.

We stayed at this beautiful and comfortable Protea Hotel by Marriott Franschoek on December 26, 2019 and had an amazing experience from the very friendly staff and management. This was Customer Service at its highest level. What a beautiful hotel and very well located to enjoy Franschoek within walking distance, and at a reasonable price bracket, compared to their competitors in the area. My car broke down as we pulled into the hotel parking area early evening, and as international visitors we were very concerned what to do next, as we obviously did not know where to go find help. The security guard (Clyde) walked over, introduced himself and offer to help. He contacted the hotel manager Shericka (after hours), who knew a mechanic who committed to come over the next morning to help us. When we checked in, Andrew at the front desk already knew about the situation as Shericka (manager) informed him to look after us. We received 5 start service and was informed that the next morning, Annastacia will contact us when the mechanic is there. Our evening at the restaurant was amazing, the food was fantastic, and the 5 star service continued. Breakfast on the patio was an ideal way to start the day, great food and yes, friendly service again. The mechanic was there at 9am, fixed the car after driving half hour to go get a part, at a very reasonable cost. Shericka personally came over to ensure we are looked after and to ensure we were helped out. I want to thank Shericka, and her staff (Andrew, Annastacia, and Clyde) for looking after us, and going the extra miles to make our stay comfortable and memorable. You represented your company very well and set the personal customer service bar level very high, and we will have no second thoughts to recommend this hotel to our friends and family as a must, when visiting Franschook. We hope your management see this post and reward you for what we feel was going way over and beyond the standard expected customer service. We look forward to our next visit at your beautiful and very comfortable hotel. THANK YOU !!! – Jacques Doubell Read less
