We stayed at the Protea Hotel in Umhlanga last year when in South Africa, they were in the process of building a new section. The hotel was fine for what we wanted at the time, looked in need of some TLC though. We had a change of plan while in South Africa this year and again stayed at the Protea but in the newly completed section. What a terrific transformation, just beautiful, we were staggered at the difference.
The design, the rooms, fittings and furnishing just beautiful.
Breakfast was sumptuous in very comfortable surroundings, staff very friendly, we just loved it and would have no hesitation in recommending it.
