We stayed for 10 days and what a lovely hotel! Feels like home. Rooms are spacious and have a great view over Johannesburg. If you ever need transport, look no further. Thank you Morne and team for assisting us the whole time! Staff friendly and helpful.

From the moment I arrived, the staff was extremely helpful and kind. Room was large, clean and comfortable. The bed especially! Wifi worked great. Small refrigerator in my room was a plus. The staff consistently went out of their way to help me get cabs, shuttles, plan tours, and more. Breakfast was awesome. Room service options were great as well!...

I feel that this hotel has improved since our previous stay, and we had a most pleasant stay. What was especially impressive was that every single staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Well done, Protea Parktonian. We look forward to visiting again.

Great place, best food; awesome view of the city; west wing the best; sunsets out of this world! Spacious rooms, great water and energy saving initiatives; lights on passage are auto! Will recommend this any day!! Very close to the city tto; just won't advise to take a walk at night, that won't be safe. Plenty secure car park too!
