I have been located in room 1. Big room, lots of space, bathroom was clean and big too. Comfortable bed. I had a really good sleep. Breakfast buffet proposes plenty of choice with good quality products. I had my dinner at the hotel too (the Chapter One restaurant), whilst a barbecue was organized on that evening. Food was excellent !...

There's not much to say, which is a compliment for the hotel. It's modern and has everything you expect from a hotel in this price range. Rooms are may be a bit small, but are clean and comfortable and have all amenities you want. There's a good bar and restaurant and it's conveniently located near a number of outside restaurants...

I had high expectations for the Protea brand. This hotel was a bit disappointing. The shower in my room was just bad. The shower cubicle doesn't have a shower curtain or door, so water just spills on the floor. The bed is ok- not that comfortable if you ask me. I didn't get a room with a balcony- so perhaps...

I've stayed at the Protea 3 times in the last few months and will definitely continue to frequent it. Staff are super friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean & spacious. Breakfast buffet has a huge variety of choice, although the addition of pancakes (crêpes, not American flapjack things) would rate a 5th star.. Bar area gives a great option for...
