            The food is much better than I remember. Great bar serviuce especially from Mantoi. Great energy!!

            Apple on stand in room had been half eaten and turned the other way. Was not changed when room serviced.

            Computer and Tv did not work.No evacuation of the water in the bath.We went to a 5star hotel in Sandton for breakfast .Absolutely stunning ,comparing with the protea hotel and cheaper!!!!!!

            It feels like it is safe, and we liked the Lux Express service

            The attitude of the staff - friendly and willing to help with any queries as best as they knew how.

            Booking was for - a non-smoking twin bedded room - we were given a smoking room with a double bed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            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.

            Friendly staff

            Location not ideal for leisure travellers

          • Family with children
            7.0

            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.

          • Single
            7.8

            Excellent Location with quality restaurant and workout facilities. I will stay here again on business trips to Jo'burg.

          • Single
            8.2

            Efficient room service, quick and good

            Internet connection, why can we get a free connection or attractive daily package ?

          • Couple
            7.0

            i liked the room, the finishes are all very modern. DSTV as well as they had more channels

          • Single
            9.6

            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.

          • Couple
            9.2

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

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            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.
