Comfortable, well-priced hotel overlooking Kimberley's Big Hole. Great restaurant, intimate bar and garden terrace offer on-site hospitality. Use the pedestrian subway across the road to access the Museum and replica old-town next door.

The standard of Protea Hotel is something that you can expect. Room is clean and modern. Every inch of the room is functioning and practical. Breakfast is adequate with ample free parking. Had a burst tyre, 140km to reach Kimberley while traveling from CT. Arrived safely with the tow truck and had a good two nights rest.

Ideally located right next to the Big Hole. There are great views on the hole from the deck and pool area, and it is just a short walk to the visitor center to get on the main viewing deck. Service was excellent as we got updated due to some misunderstanding during reservation. Very modern rooms, which are very clean and well equipped.

The staff at check in were friendly and efficient, but that is unfortunately where it ends. The hotel does not deserve a four star rating. After our sub-standard and unsatisfactory dinner we retired to our bedroom for a well deserved good night's rest. This unfortunately turned into a nightmare when we were woken up at 2:30 by very rowdy neighbours having a party and slamming doors. I called reception and a very friendly Lebogang offered to intervene. They were quiet for about a minute . I had to call reception again and again they intervened. But unfortunately the noise continued after 5 minutes. It went on like this for at least other hour and when we finally fell asleep it was almost time to get up. I regret our choice of hotel and would not recommend this establishment to anyone expecting a good meal or a good night's rest.

This hotel is still advertising all their amenities. Yet you can only order room service as the restaurant isn't open, you can't get a beer, you can only get a sandwich for breakfast even though your hotel confirmation says your stay includes a buffet breakfast. There was no porter available on arrival. The receptionist tells you the bar is open but when you get there the manager comes and tells you the bar is closed because they can't sell alcohol on weekends, either she thinks I am an idiot or she is living in a bubble and shouldn't be managing a 4 star hotel. Licensed establishments ARE allowed to sell alcohol for ON SITE consumption until 22h00. So this is an apparent 4 star establishment, still charging 100% of their accommodation rates yet providing 50% of their advertised amenities and services....
