A hotel really set up for conferences and tour groups. Ok for a couple, but there will be more intimate ones available. Close to Golf Course and Bleuuklippen Vinyard. Well worth a visit. Food was fine in the restaurant but the buffet breakfast was very good

This was our first stop when we arrived in Stellenbosch and it's definitely not anything special. The reception staff were friendly and professional but, that's about where it ended. The room we got was huge but, the doors didn't close properly, the shower was like I was standing next to a waterfall and felt a bit of spray on me....

We have recently stayed at this Protea for 2 nights. Being a world traveller I had high expectations of the hotel due to the location.

If you looking for a hotel where the buzz is rather low and more quiet, this is the one to go. Breaking away from the hustle of the city life, we really need this peace and tranquility just to think in a calming mood. Food is really good and well priced.

I stayed here as part of a cycling tour from PE to Cape Town. The venue is loverly and the hotel is clearly very well setup for conferences. The location in Techno Park is great for business. This distracts from a holiday experience a bit. Rooms were great, views are great and the breakfast was loverly.

Stayed one night here, as part of a long tour. Stellenbosch is a beautiful old historic town - but this hotel is a 10 minute taxi ride away, on a business park!!
