Amazing quaint hotel with a lodge ambiance, perfect setting before one embarks on a safari. Great service, with good food and a well stocked bar. Evening entertainment provided. Rooms with double bed options and view overlooking the pool available. Highly recommended as it is close to the Kruger Park.

Thanks to Protea Hotel Kruger Gate for affording me complimentary bed and breakfast on 17 September 2015. Impeccable friendly service and the stay was pleasant as always experienced at a Protea Hotel. The bushveld is certainly an experience one should encounter and Protea Hotel Kruger Gate added to that experience.

The hotel remains beautiful, and the recent refurb of the rooms was done superbly. Food was very good. Service during breakfast excellent but very slow during lunch time. Setting has to be one of the most beautiful and I will never stop enjoying sipping on a sun downer while watching elephants feeding in the Sabie River!
