Have stayed at the Protea Wanderers quite a few times. Its a very nice hotel, particularly the upper floors if your room overlooks the bowling greens. They have complementary shuttles to Sandton,Rosebank and Melrose Arch. Rooms are clean, hotel well kept.

This property is run by the Marriott Hotel chain. It is an art deco experience. The architecture and rooms are imaginatively and tastefully designed. Unique art work is everywhere, from in- room pictures to sculptures in alcoves along corridors. Fabulous spiral staircase in the lobby. Restaurant and bar had good service and the food was fine. Amusing anecdote at dinner:...

Unfortunately my first impressions have tainted my overall experience during this one night stay. On arrival at the hotel I was told no rooms were available ( this was 10 am and I had just flown in from Vienna.) I was tired and looking forward to a shower but I understood and waited. After an 1.5 hrs of waiting, an...

Used this venue for a "non standard" company gathering, and found the property and staff to be flexible and accommodating to all our requests. Good business hotel, friendly and helpfull staff, in a very nice location, would use again.

As always Proteas Hotels by Marriott will not let you down. First time I visited this hotel in Johannesburg and only good things to tell apart from a misunderstanding that took place upon my arrival and hadn't checked my early booking request. The rooms are not as modern as Hotel Proteas Fire and Ice for example but they are spacious,...

This is a nice property; however, it requires update or, at the very least, a good paint job esp in the rooms. They need to be painted with warm colours. Exteriors are nice and presentable. The only thing going for this hotel is its great customer service (esp. Mbali & Thomas). Front office staff was always helpful. At the restaurant,...

Very friendly receptionist and staff. The hotel is beautiful and clean, the room was okay, not a pretty view outside into the street area. The Tv channels were no good. But the room was clean. It felt more like a business room, with a large desk. although we were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary, which we stated at reception....
