We needed a couple of nights in a room when our SAA flight to Australia was cancelled due to Covid19. Protea was well priced with room service and a good bathroom area. No place to hang towels and furniture was very steampunk... Food was good but service slow. Great to sit with a drink by a nice pool. Would definitely stay here again. Free shuttle to airport every 15 mins.
This hotel is a short shuttle ride (free) from the airport so very convenient. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We mistakenly went to the guest services desk instead of the check in, and Mimi was so accommodating to us weary travelers! We had dinner and breakfast there. Both meals were above average - outstanding breakfast buffet. Each server was smiling, friendly, and welcoming. The hotel is modern and has, not surprisingly, an airplane theme which I found very cool The desk in our room was in the shape of an airplane wing, for example.
Loved the aviation decor in this airport hotel and the lovely views of the airport tarmac. Great restaurant and front desk service. Brian, Irvin and s’Phelele were outstanding. Room upgrade was nice - thx.
Stayed here for my first night in South Africa. Booked it through points as it was cheap (only 5K points a night). Stayed with my wife and 4 y.o
Room was very small and there was hardly any space. No toothbrush set. Very bare minimalistic.
Good enough for one night stay but would not recommend for any longer than a night.
The hotel has complimentary bus service from the airport to the hotel and back. But do check out the timings.

We arrived mid afternoon and departed early the next day, so we found the hotel to be a great fit. We walked to the bus terminal and the shuttle arrived immediately and within 30 seconds we were on our way to the hotel. Reception was friendly and check-in quick. Our room, 135, was clean and had all the space and amenities we required for such a short stay. When we left to go down to the bar, we found that our door would not lock. Reception immediately organised check by maintenance and said that if the door does not get fixed quickly, we will be moved to another room. Within 5 minutes, maintenance had disassembled and reassembled part of the door hardware and now it worked properly. The bar was a great place to enjoy a bottle of MCC and relax on a very rainy afternoon. We would have spent time by the nice pool but that was not an option. Our room was very quiet, enabling a good night of sleep. When we timed our check-out and the shuttle departed within 3 minutes. Recommend for a layover.
