“Silver Falcons Aerobatic Team”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The Silver Falcons Aerobatic Team had the privilege of being hosted by the Protea Hotel Hilton for the weekend of the Pietermaritzburg Airshow. The friendly staff, warm atmosphere, comfortable rooms and delicious food made this a memorable and relaxing stay. Thanks to the staff and hotel manager for your personal touch!! A definite must for the business traveler!

My Wife and I came across the Hilton Hotel whilst meandering. We stayed over and found everything Fabulous. We loved the place. Now when we go meandering we start off from The Hilton Hotel. We have stayed over several times. We love the area and have found many valuable antiques in the area. The Hilton Hotel is our favourite Holiday spot. The Hilton Hotel is romantic and just Fabulous.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view or ask for a room with a lounge.

Dear Minkey2014

Thank you for the wonderful review. GUEST feedback helps us to know where we can improve and motivates the STAFF.

The Midlands has a wealth of beautiful places to explore; be sure to ask for our magazines covering The Meander and The Amble.

I would love to meet you on your next trip, and advise you on some of the hidden gems in the area.

Thank you once again for your wonderful review.

I had the opportunity to stay over in a suite with my partner whilst on a midland meander visit. What an oasis after a long day in the car! My partner stays there often on business and I can only echo his sentiments about the smiling friendly staff and management and the luxuriously furnished and comfortable facilities!

I can highly recommend this hotel - exceptionally clean and well managed facilities. The enormous breakfast choice, a most comfortable bed and lovely bathroom will definitely be my first choice when visiting Hilton and the meander again! Astrid A

I travel on business all over South Africa, but spend 4 days a month in Pietermaritzburg, where our head office is situated. After staying in various hotels and lodges in this historic city, I could well associate with "Goldilocks"- beds too hard, chairs too soft, breakfast dreadful etc etc!:-)

The Protea was recommended by a colleague, and although approx. 20kms out of the city centre (not a bad thing), what a place to arrive at after a long day or flight! An historic building, both inside and out, not unlike some hotels I have stayed at in Europe and UK. A quiet pub on weeknights, but above all, the most comfortable bed I have stayed in ever, and an awesome breakfast!

Warm, friendly and attentive staff and management, along with the above, make this in my view the most recommended accommodation for the discerning traveller. Try it! Steve D

If you like fantastic hotelbreakfasts this is really a hotel for you. In other aspects, an ordinary chain hotel. Accoring to the price for the room, you can expect better service. Our expectations on this hotel was not fullfild.
