All round world class facilities. Their service as well is excellent and their meals are as good as hotel food can get. Cute gym located in the basement which at first I found strange but after a while you forget you're underground.

We were in a king room facing the back, the room was average size with a desk, a closet with a safe and a smallish bathroom. Checkin was easy, the front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful specially Phumla who was always there to help with a smile. We did not eat at the restaurant. They offer shuttle services...

Stayed again in Protea Wanderers while in JHB. Beats most locations and what I really like is the fact that you can safely walk outside around the cricket fields. I always ask for room facing the cricket fields. Breakfast is nice but expensive. It helps if you become member as they give you discount on food if you are. Friendly...

The hotel is in a quiet area of the city someway from the centre so we were unable to look around other than stroll around the immediate area. The bedroom was very nice with all the necessary comforts, it was clean and had good beds with a nice bathroom. The bar was fairly well stocked and we were able to...

We stayed at this hotel a couple of days during our trip to South Africa. The hotel rooms are quite spacious and clean. The hotel offers a shuttle to the Rosebank Mall, which is nice because the hotel is not close to anything - at least you would not walk to anything I the area. This is a great hotel...

My tour group stayed here for one night before travelling to Kruger. The hotel is in a good location and nice and modern. Rooms were comfortable and I slept really well. Buffet dinner and breakfast were included in our stay. Dinner buffet was limited but OK, breakfast was very good.

At first at reception they were not very helpful and did not meet my needs as they provided two single beds instead of my large king bed and the floor level. They were not too happy about my request. They did however change it and the room was great. Great view and it met expectations. Will definitely stay there again.
