Instead of driving home after an event at Vodaworld we chose to stay at Protea Hotel Midrand which was extremely close by so we booked in earlier that afternoon. The room suited our needs just fine and looked out onto a lovely well kept garden surrounding the pool. I was surprised by how peaceful and quiet the place is given... More

Very quite hotel, loved the food and the environment. The staff are very welcoming. What i didnt like is how the rooms are setup, Its makes it look more like a staff house. Bit apart from that i really love it, and will definitely be staying there if i go back to south africa

My main recollection of my stay at this hotel was of extremely comfortable beds and unusually quiet rooms, despite being situated so close to one of the main highways in Gauteng.

The hotel is well situated between Joburg and Pretoria, but needs upgrading. The price does not match the product. The service is average, with staff not very motivated and effective. The hotel could do much better.

The service was terrible and the staff were rude. The breakfast buffet was not hot as it is supposed to be and there was zero desire from the staff to be helpful or even greet for that matter.
