The buildings are laid out in a way that you feel like there is a lot of space between you and other guests and the dining room and lounge overlook the beautiful fairways of the...

In spite of George having nothing to offer really to travelers, the King George is a nice hotel in the model of a motel with a central restaurant. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very helpful and did it properly for our honeymoon.

This was our fourth stay at the Protea Hotel King Goerge and as usual it was terrific. We stayed upstairs for the first time and the mountain view was absolutely breathtaking.

A review on a one-night business trip really doesn't do this hotel any justice! My stay was comfortable, luxurious and serene, and within walking distance of my colleagues, the swimming pool (right outside my door!), the reception area, and restaurant (there is also a pub). Abundant, good food and super-friendly staff, and the lively, unexpected accompaniment of a senior Indian...

The management really went the extra mile to ensure that everything was exactly the way i like it. They did not miss a beat, from booking to my time spent in Rex Tavern to my meal. One word Outstanding and they manage to repeat that the next day again.
