And if you can’t, I think you should reconfigure your trip to stay in a different town. Full disclosure: we only stayed here one night and liked that it was closer to restaurants than the other Marriott Protea, but we were very happy to not have to stay a second night. This should sum it up for us: they give out free sherry in the lobby (which was delicious), but I still joke that it was the only way that they can help people make it through the night. This may come across a bit harsh, but hear me out here... -“Not a modern hotel” was called out in a previous review - I would say this is old and hasn’t been updated since the 80’s or 90’s. We got “upgraded” to a two-level room, and I’m pretty sure that we stayed in a barn. (The bathroom upstairs didn’t have a ceiling or door, the one downstairs had a shower that didn’t drain.) The bed wasn’t too bad, but I definitely did not sleep well. -There is not a gym. The closest one is in the mall 10-15 minutes away, and you have to pay a guest fee. -The neighborhood isn’t great, so they’ve got security and a gate at all times. (This is a plus on this review.) However, this is walking distance to the downtown area, as long as you’re not too squeamish. (We felt perfectly safe, but who knows.) -Breakfast is not included - as a Titanium Elite, you can get the Continental breakfast instead of your welcome points, but then you need to pay an up charge to get anything warm. (The restaurant looked nice, but we did not eat there.) -As noted in other reviews, the “pool” is not great and calling it a “spa” seems a bit of a stretch. -We changed our plans about a month out and cancelled our old reservation, but for some reason they reinstated our reservation for a different day. When we arrived, they debated us for the first day on whether or not we actually cancelled it. They ended up taking it off after we showed them the cancellation confirmation multiple times, but not before they made it seem like it was our fault.

Dear A-N-Adventures Thank you so much for your feedback after 1 nights stay at Protea Hotel by Marriott Dorpshuis & Spa. Protea Hotel by Marriott Dorpshuis & Spa is situated in the historical Dorp str , walking distance from town and nearby shops and restaurants. Part of the hotel originally built in 1912 is steeped in rich history and both the building and furniture tells the story of nearly a century of providing fantastic hospitality to local and international visitors Our hotel 's style of hospitality reflects a vintage hospitality where our STAFF form the core of your experience.Our Bar is unique with some history behind the bar counter and the complimentary sherry helps through the colder and rainy nights we currently experience in the Winelands. As a Titanium Elite member I am sure you are familiar with the benefits offered. We value your support and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and better your experience with us. Once again thank you for your feedback! Kind Regards Gerty Munro

We found the employees at this hotel friendly and helpful. When checking in, we asked for opinions on the choice of wineries we planned to visit. Shortly after we got to our room, someone delivered printouts of directions to each winery we discussed. In addition to the woman I perceived to be the manager that helped us with suggestions, we found Pricilla to be especially helpful. As a Titanium member, I was upgraded to a bi-level one BR loft which I was quite happy with. Although it might appear that this room is suitable for more than the advertised two people, the couch would be uncomfortable for someone other than a small child.

Best thing about the hotel is the staff! Very helpful, and friendly. Location is not great, as it is close to the main roads and traffic noise is endless and never stops. They should definitely look at soundproofing the bedrooms, to ensure that one can actually sleep at night. Décor and furniture in the rooms are also outdated, and it is time for an upgrade.

Dear YolandeV15 Thank you so much for writing a review of your recent experience at Protea Hotel by Marriott Dorpshuis & Spa Stellenbosch. The hotel's style of hospitality reflects a vintage hospitality where our STAFF form the core of your experience, and I am so happy to read your feedback that the staff is very helpful and friendly. We are looking at the noise challenge from the few rooms at the back and currently busy with the décor and furniture. We just completed the lounge. Once again thank you for your feedback and hope to welcome you back whenever your travels brings you back to Stellenbosch. Come and experience a room away from the traffic noise!

I stayed in the Protea Hotel Dorpshuis on the 24th and 25th of September. Arrived on the 24th after 23:00 and was greated by friendly and helpful staff. I immediately felt at home. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. Overall, I had the best stay and will definately return. Room service meals were great, affordable and served with a smile. I never experienced such friendly service from any hotel's personnel ever in my life. I was really impressed and as said will definately return. Well done to whoever appoint and train your staff!!
