We stayed at the Protea hotel for 2 nights while visiting family in Bloemfontein.
The location is very central in Bloemfontein and close to a large shopping mall.
The room we had was very clean and very comfortable. We had a 'family room' - 2 double beds for us and the kids and we found it to be quite spacious with all the usual amenities. The free wifi was a bonus and it worked well for all our devices. It is not common to get free wifi in South African hotels and we were really glad that the quality and ease of connection was good.
The staff are friendly and always offering assistance or advice.
We did not use the restaurant but found the service in the lounge area fantastic when we relaxed in the evenings for a few drinks. Being mid winter we also did not use the pool or other outside entertainment areas but all of them looked very welcoming.
We have had some nasty surprises with some B & B's in Bloem and will definitely return to this Protea hotel because of the guarantee of peace of mind.
