I often use the Protea Midrand for business stays. Rooms are comfortable but road noise is a factor if you on the wrong side. Dinner was tasty but breakfasts here need work. Compared to protea umhlanga this hotel has much to work on in the breakfast department. Send your team to Umhlanga to see what can be done with a similar setup. Coffee quality needs work too. I look forward to seeing these improvements next time.

I stayed there for a couple of nights on business. The room is clean, large enough, the mattress is really good and the view in the garden is good. Staff, restaurant menu and breakfast buffet are OK. They offer an airport shuttle service for a fee. It is conveniently located for business as many companies are in the surroundings. Probably not good for holidays.

I have used this hotel many times in the past because of its convenience between Johannesburg and Pretoria but this time will more than likely be my last. The service in the restaurant was diabolical. The first waiter did not understand the wine menu and took 23 minutes to advise us they did not have the wine we wanted but they actually did have it in stock. The second waitress tried to resolve the issue but did not return. Eventually I approached the front office and asked for some assistance and they again tried. After 50 minutes in the restuarant we got the original bottle of wine we ordered. Our guests had arrived in the meantime. It took about 20 minutes to get them wine glasses. We then had to ask for food menus and ordered the food. The head waiter by now was alerted to our concerns and advise us that the butternut was sour and we should not order that. We gave up and asked them what they had and what we could eat. The food was reasonable but the staff are diabolical and clearly have not been trained and the hotel is either battling financially as they are unable to provide the menu items or they just do not care.

Dear Jenny i,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for providing feedback regarding your visit as this is the only means that we have in order to critique our GUEST service experience.

I sincerely apologize for the level of service that you received at our establishment.
This is not the standard that we, at Protea Hotel by Marriott Midrand, pride ourselves on. Steps will be taken in order to resolve the matter.

Please try us once more, so that we might "wow" you with our true level of service.

Kind Regards,
Tarryn Annamalay
GUEST Relations Manager

I loved staying at this hotel. It is very central for business in both JHB and Pretoria. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Check in was effortless. The rooms are renovated and very clean. Room service was great. It is nice to sit on the balcony by the pool and work after a long day.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool is quieter

Excellent staff at Reception who are always willing to assist and accommodate requests especially my need to have a room close to reception. Housekeeping is brilliant and rooms are clean.
Bar staff work hard at night trying to get bar meals out timeously. The bar menu needs a facelift and extra staff at night may help. Restaurant staff are always so friendly and welcoming at Breakfast. Would love to try the Camelot Spa, especially in the evenings after work, but they are constantly fully booked. This hotel is my home away from home and the hotel staff here are stunning.
