4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Protea is well situated to explore Franschhoek, with spacious rooms. The staff were friendly & helpful. The only negative is that the hotel seems to be geared more to group travel (we were traveling independently); the breakfast was very good, but chaotically organised (same for the bar if you just wanted a drink, but no meal). Would we stay here gain? Yes - but would like to see the hotel think about the layout and flow of breakfast & the bar.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I was initially allocated room on the road side of the hotel which was lovely but I was concerned I might be disturbed by traffic sounds . I asked if I could be moved to a different room and the receptionist not only granted my request ,she helped to move my things with me. I was so impressed . Extremely happy with new room ,light ,bright and airy and so clean .

    Great Boutique Style

    Despite being part of a large group this is a really nice individual hotel in Franschhoek. It’s only on 2 storeys and feels like a classy boutique establishment. Breakfast and staff were excellent

    A nice hotel but choose a room off the courtyard

    We were disturbed till after midnight by noisy party below - hotel accepted complaint and wiped out extra charges👍. We would stay again but book a room at the rear of the hotel (not over entertainment suite!).
