Less than expected from a Protea/Marriott

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 May 2023via mobile
Friendly staff and good dinner. However, hotel is in an older and less safe part of town, the rooms are dark with minimal lighting, no elevator, no gym and decor is tired. Less than expected from Protea/Marriott. Make sure you don’t have a room directly over/near the dining area as it is very noisy.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights, arriving at 1PM with a rental car and using the covered parking in front. A nice receptionist copied my passport, as I signed an entry sheet, then presented the key cards. We took our bags up the stairs to the 1st floor.
Wood floored room #116 opened to a fully outfitted bathroom with a tub and shower stall, across a closet with safe, then a desk with 2 outlets/2 chairs, a comfortable king faced a satellite TV(Al Jezzara, CNN, 4 SABC, 4 sports and 4 movies), coffee station with small refer, then an opening window with view of the parking lot. The spacious room had quiet AC, good secure WIFI and quick hot water.
The serviced 6:30AM lobby breakfast was excellent; juices, fruit, yogurt, egg station, hot and cold meats, cheese, breads/jams, muffins and coffee machine choices.
We used their nice rectangular pool twice.
This renovated 94 room hotel is within a 300m walk from the petrol/KFC/Spar and a 500m drive to the Valley Hyper Centre/Checkers.
