Lovely hotel set in beautiful surroundings; with the Outeniqua Mountains in clear view, and surrounding golf course; it all makes a great start to your vacation. The hotel has a Victorian style, and at times feels laid back in a good way, the staff are very friendly. We (family of four, 2 kids) enjoyed our stay of 4 nights and...

Pleasant and professional checkin! Bryon was very accommodating and efficient.

We spent two nights at Protea hotel king George, to our amazement the hotel four star rating was not a true reflection of the quality of the hotel. Breakfast was absolutely terrible. Interior of units were very old. Facilities were poor. Definitely a two or three star.

This hotel's rooms are poorly designed and a shower leaves the floor soaking wet. The breakfast was seriously disappointing! The location is not ideal if you are not a golfer. I suppose you get what you pay for but this was not a fabulous experience at all.
