The breakfast buffet was amazing - so many things to choose from! The omelet was very good - can't wait to do it again tomorrow! The rooms are nice, spacious and have a good TV. There is a very nicely kept pool on the premises and it's nice to sit out there and just chill. The staff are amazingly accommodating!...

Dear Pangtuwi At the outset, i would like to humbly apologize for the terrible experience you had in our restaurant. Please rest assured that this matter was taken up with the department concerned and dealt with accordingly. Protea Hotel by Marriott Nelspruit prides itself with exemplary service.

Dear 915faniem Thank you for your review. The Hotel has always had noise buffering windows in the B Block and recently upgraded these to a new noise buffering technology which reduces the sound even further. Thus no need to worry if one is placed on the road side. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards Garrick Grabe...

I was welcomed by friendly reception and didn't missed a bit to get me settled and feel at home. The staff made my two night a memorable one. The hotel structure is unique and I think it inspired by the beautiful Nelspruit landscape and culture. I had a big room with everything I required to continue to do my work...

This is not a bad hotel at all. It's a four star hotel situated on the N4. At first we thought it was difficult to find it, but once we had booked in. We saw that it was actually right on the N4. But our stay was very pleasant with good service from checking in on Friday and on even...

The hotel was good and clean. I have to concur on the terrible service at the restaurant though. We only had 1 meal there because of this. I think they need to hire more staff. Otherwise the pool was fantastic for our toddler and us. The location is also great and easy to access.
