Since the hotel is in the town, there are a number of shops within walking distance to explore. We enjoyed the breakfast, watching the hustle and bustle of tourists...

Trying to get a last minute weekend booking in Franschhoek is difficult, and we were lucky that the Protea had a room – every other hotel and B&B we’d tried were fully booked. Everything about our stay was fine; the staff were good, the room clean and comfortable, there was a decent bathroom, etc. But the whole place is like...

This hotel provides a wonderful welcoming place to stay when first arriving in South Africa. The rooms are all beautifully situated around the central gardens and swimming pool and are furnished to a high standard. Although travelling with a friend, we had single rooms but those allocated to us were no different to those with double occupancy, which is so...
