This is a comfortable business hotel. Rooms are decently sized and bathrooms are okay too, the washbasin is a small one though. Couple of bummers : Gave one glass bottle of water, replenishments were in the form of plastic bottles. If you ask for the same glass bottle (which I do because of environmental reasons), they don't give it. Breakfast was very decent and overall service was good. A big issue is that they dont have room service for food. They have only beverages that can be ordered to your rooms! The reason is 'we have many restaurants around us'. I found this to be funny. Hotel is well located and opt for higher floors for good views.

We stayed at the Protea Hotel Umhlanga on the 14-15 July 2023 and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are space with a large bathroom and lovely shower. The corner room we stayed in had a gorgeous view. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet that was included in the room rate and the gentleman manning the egg station was amazing. We would love to visit this hotel again soon.

Located right on Chartwell Street, this great hotel is in the thick of the action. The amazing Butcher Boys is over the road, as is my favorite bar, 14 on Chartwell. I’ve stayed here on a few occasions and for some reason my points never get posted to my BonVoy account. I was welcomed as a silver member, which I queried as I am a Gold member. I was asked to write my BonVoy number on my signing in sheet (which I did). A couple of weeks have passed since I checked out & still no points in my account. Shame as it’s a really good hotel.

It’s a glorified airbnb and the corridors look like a high security prison. They provide no amenities except cold water. Also, you better carry your own dental kit as even that is a chargeable. The only good thing about this place is it’s convenient location.

Clean space with perfect beach design to each room. Have stayed several times and each time with a superior experience. Rooms with views, 300 meters to the ocean and famed lighthouse, restaurants galore out the door, coffee shops and woolies down the street. The best part is that the staff go above and beyond and exhibit incredible service.

Great location in the upmarket Umhlanga area. Surrounded by awesome restaurants and efficient uber service to anywhere. Check in was somewhat laboured and took long perhaps because it was a group check in🤔 ? Either way.. should have been a smooth process. My room was a bit stuffy . Could have done with switching on aircon before arrival to freshen it up a bit. However this shouldn't deter you... the hot shower 🚿 is the best. 13th floor views are awesome. Ambience is muted and comfortable to the eye. Restaurant service is awesome. Mthobisi the chef makes a seriously delish omelette Would recommend

The hotel is suited in an excellent location. The hotel location is within walking distace to the beach, the Pearls of Umhlanga mall, restaurants (14 on Chartwell has excellent food), Pharmacy, etc. The hotel is well kept, clean, safe, renovated and modern. The staff is friendly. Had a pleasant stay with no issues.

Our third trip to Umlanga but first to the Protea Umlanga. We stayed a week and the staff were friendly and efficient, The hotel was central to everything we needed, food drink shops supermarket and of course the sea. The room was good but view was mainly the adjacent carpark with a bit of sea view. The shower was great! Would stay again
