Very nice and modern hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms, good buffet breakfast, free wifi (although some problems with it). Free shuttle to and from airport.
Would be nice to have a mini-bar or small fridge in the room.
The security person was most personable and kind, and I am in great remiss for forgetting his name. I asked if he had seen any mushrooms around the property after he met me walking around the inside perimeter of the hotel grounds. To my astonishment, he came back with a a fresh Agaricus species for me to examine. Then, when I wanted to walk around the neighborhood, we went on a foray together. He was enthusiastic about learning about the rocks, minerals, and mushrooms we found on our hike. He and a colleague told me touching stories about the pictures in the wonderful book on Nelson Mandela they have in the lounge.
The desk clerks were cheerful and friendly and apparently in training on thier own time. They seemed to have a difficult time completing simple requests like understanding the difference between a residential and "yellow pages" business phone book; finding a residential phone book took at least 20 minutes. The restaurant could use consultation about how to turn their food into excellence; not very difficult. The food was edible to very good and reasonably priced.
Personnel at the bar was nice.
I liked the comfort of the bedroom, the cheerfulness of staff, the quirky design of the building and tasty food.
I found the restaurant and bar service rather slow.
The hotel was nice! Shuttle from airport was free and on time! Room design was modern
I arrived after 11pm and the bar and restaurant were closed. Not much to do around the area so it was a bit boring!
I liked the unusual design of the hotel. The gym is very good for the category of the hotel. Interesting view to the airport, that is located right across the street. Helpful personal at the reception. I can recommend the hotel for a stopover in Johannesburg.
Garden and pool are e bit loud, because a busy highway is just behind the garden.
I enjoyed the experience throughly - generally i stay at the Sun International Resorts...The staff where pleasant on my arrival till my departure
They were pleasant, punctual and very professional. When our room wasn't ready on time after a very short while they upgraded us to another room which was really beautiful. I would like to thank them very much and will definitely use them again.
The price of the breakfast, it cost more than our supper we had in the restaurant.
staff relation great
need for a small fridge as may need to keep medication or so
Clean, friendly staff, modern airline theme decor. Location is perfect - close to airport with free shuttle. All told - good value for money.
Room service - food arrived with no condiments, no bottle opener for coke bottles! Called and asked them to send - never arrived! If you order check before they leave!
The bright, clean, modern room was appealing.
The lowest room rate seems only to be available for rooms with twin beds- even though I was traveling alone I prefer to sleep in a double bed.
Closeness to airport, free and performant internet access, restaurant and large breakfast.
restricted buffet in the later evening
Location, Free shuttle to and from airport and free internet
Bad room designs of shower, small rooms
Wonderful modern and interesting design with strong aviation theme, attention to details, spotlessly clean and superb rooms. Friendly staff, good food, gym and pool...nice garden to relax in and rest before or after travel. Best value for money experienced to date...well done Protea this is your best hotel by far.
Rooms at end of corridors have occasional issue of noise from staff access doors to the floors. I discussed this with staff who are aware of the problem and trying to address it. Even with this inconvenience I would go straight back to the same room.
I absolutely loved this hotel and the service was unbelievable. The price was affordable and from the moment we walked in, we received such a warm welcome. For an airport hotel, I could not recommend this hotel more.
