    Unfortunately their system did not show that I did book. So, I was lucky to have found a room still available. You need to get your system communicate with theirs.

    The Protea Hotel is conveniently located close to a golf course. Parking is not a problem. Its quiet and a good place for business and for taking family too!

    They can improve on the dining side or suggest to guests other alternatives in the area.

    I travel a lot in the US and had opportunity to live in many hotels. I was a little skeptical about living in a hotel in South Africa but Protea Hotel Wanderers is one of the best hotels I stayed in. The staff is very professional and accommodating.

    Everything was to my liking.

    Big hotel with nice rooms. We have found everything necessary in the room.

    Very good

    I got an excellent bargain through Booked.net so was very happy to see a business class hotel and facilities for the price. We ate delicious meals--the mixed grill and smoked salmon plate in particular.

    The location was nowhere near any shopping, restaurants or attractions within walking distance, nor were local taxis available--just expensive hotel transport. I never did figure out where to get a towel for the pool.
