Shower clogged

good bed, but water in the shower not flowing, so it was more like a bath than a shower. Cook at breakfast not very motivated. Had to be pulled twice from the kitchen to get her to do omelettes. Friendly waitress at breakfast. Good location.


  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Room was tired. Fridge was broken, although they changed it felt as though they did so under duress. Ate in restaurant, service was slow and food quality not very good.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Good but room for improvement.

The room was clean and tidy somewhat old style, Shower area too small and cramped actually in my opinion is a trip hazard. Location of room is poor if you have a suitcase and proximity to lift. All of the staff were very good and readily assisted with any enquiries I made. I would recommend the Protea mainly due to the professional staff I dealt with.
