Semi-Luxurious hotel with 3 big faults
Posted Oct 22, 2015 on Hotels
Protea Hotel Highveld is a semi-luxurious hotel. The hotel is divided in 2 parts. The main part is where the reception is, however they claim it is the noisier section, but I must admit I heard nothing. The second section is across the parking area which is only rooms and they claim to have less noise. The positives are the room is good; quality of furniture and bedding is very good. Very good desk with plug on desk for businessman. All rooms are air conditioned. They have a large bathrooms but only a shower, toilet and a small basin with almost no shelf space. Only about 50% of the room is being used and the other 50% is just open space. Supper they tend to push you towards carvery, however you can insist on ala carte. The 3 big faults for me is a) there is no lift and many stairways, not suitable for the elderly or disables unless you insist on a ground floor room ahead of time. B) With all the space in the bathroom, more shelf space could be fitted to put your toiletries on. C) my biggest gripe is there is not door between the bathroom and the bedroom. You can lie in bed and watch your partner go to the toilet. If I was not travelling alone, this alone would have been a reason to checkout.
