The hotel is generally lovely and the rooms are neat. However, the service we received was very bad. Our conference room was neglected, only to be tidied up at the end of the day. After lunch, the room would be dirty, untidy , no clean water glasses. There was no variety in the meals and some of the food was...

Dear Hazel M At the outset i would like to apologize for the service received during your conference with us. This by no means reflects the high quality of service we normally proud ourselves in. Your comments have been raised with the department concerned by myself, who will ensure that such instances will not happen again in future. Protea Hotel...

Not a bad venue, but no great service at all. got a room right next to the N4, but asked to be moved as the N4 with all its trucks was noisy. Dinner and breakfast was good, but service overall was very slow although the restaurant was not busy at all.

This Hotel really defines "adequate" to a Tee - there is nothing outstanding about it, but there's also nothing missing. The location on the edge of town makes it very accessible. The rooms are of a reasonable size and well presented. The Restaurant has a fair selection and the staff are neither intrusive or inefficient.

I stayed for two nights, but were once again very pleased with the excellence of the Protea Group. The cotton bedding is from superb quality and the room is spacious and have a bar-fridge. A must visit is the Chimpanzee Sanctuary that is just outside Nelspruit.

The location of the hotel is ideal for any traveller to Nelspruit. The hotel entrance and surroundings has it's own kind of charm. However, In comparison to some of the other Protea Hotel's that I have visited, the quality of the rooms are sub-standard. Linen was old and unattractive. Towels were almost perished and bath rug was torn. Dinner was...

Good sized rooms with two three quarter beds. Shower a bit small but in general well appointed. Dinner was adequate but nothing special at R185 a bit on the steep side. Breakfast was good. The service was good and the hotel well located.

You pretty much know what you'll get when booking a Protea Hotel, and this hotel is no different. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. And with good value for money as well. However, charging 185 zar for breakfast pr. person is really expensive, so we didn't try. We did try the hotel restaurant and must say I wasn't impressed....

Stayed one night with family after flying into Nelspruit from Joburg. All rooms very clean, modern, comfortable. Food and drink in the hotel restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and polite. Excellent for a short stay.

Spent a night here and was impressed. Lovely decor, nice size bedroom with bath and shower. Really friendly staff, who recommended a local restaurant for a special dinner and even phoned to book a table for us. We ordered Cocktails by the pool which were great, but they did take a long time to arrive. Good breakfast the next morning....
