As a group of friends we try a new restaurant every month in the Midlands area, so for the first time we tried the restaurant at The Protea Hotel in Hilton because of the special.
We were quite dissatisfied. The atmosphere is very posh and the service very poor. Prices are very unaffordable.

However despite all that, having the chief come speak to us and ask about our meal was the best part of the evening! What a friendly and welcoming face! He is a prized character and I would try the restaurant again just because of him!

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with friends

I stayed at this hotel for three night for the first time, what a disappointment, very expensive for what you get, only few tv stations that work, poor internet service and the food very poor quality, lucky for me, I will never use my own money to stay there...where do you pay R195 for breakfast that looks like a wimpy, the City Lodge has better breakfast. I have inform my company that we should never stay there again

Really good hotel!! The staff made the difference.
Initially my boyfriend and I were traveling for three weeks in SA. Then he got a hernia and we had to go to the hospital in Hilton. Next to the hospital there is the Pretoria Hotel. We stayed for 4 days because my boyfriend could not walk. All the staff members were so friendly. Everyday the asked if they could do something for us (from manager till housekeeping). The room of this hotel is perfect (clean, good bed, every day new sheets, enough space in the room, wifi worked well). Quality of the food is good (really good curry). We enjoyed breakfast (a lot of choice and delicious). Unfortunately we had to go home due to the illness of my boyfriend. The staff helped us a lot with arranging to go back home (printing tickets and they give us also a pillow for the ride to the airport). Keep up the good work Pretoria Hotel Hilton!!!!!!
Thank you all!

We had a comfortable stay, albeit only a short one-night stop over.Rooms are well appointed and bathroom had been upgraded. Good walk-in shower plus separate toilet. A negative point would be the very noisy plumbing - pipes make a lot of noise when neighbouring rooms are showering. TV channel selection was a bit limited. Reception staff were very friendly and accommodating. We did not stay for the breakfast as we felt this was very overpriced at R195 per person. Overall a good choice.

We often stay in Hilton, with the Protea being one of our choice venues. The hotel is great, nice comfortable rooms, good size bathrooms. everything works and is clean. In the past there have always been issues with the service - or lack of it at times in the restaurant. Reservations and front office staff were also poorly trained and really couldn't sort out even basic problems with bookings. With the new General Manager these seem to have gotten much better. The breakfast selection has always been extensive and continues to be so. Generally the quality of the food is very good at the hotel and with the improved attentive service in the restaurant I wish them well. It is well worth a visit if you happen to be in the Natal Midlands.
