I was well received on check in but I did not like the lady who checked me out. She had an attitude. I think she needs to be trained in customer service The room I was given was great in line with being a Marriot card holder.

Very kind staff and willing to help, the gentleman at the reception gave me an experience I never had at any Protea in my life....I felt very special. I requested to change my room, and it was done with no questions asked. The food was delicious.

“I was placed on the eastern side of the hotel, closer to the main road....unfortunately for a busy person like me, I couldn't sleep in the early morning due to the cars dashing on the main road...for those on business, and need a peace of mind, they should be advised of the road and allocated on western side of the hotel.”
