I stayed in the Protea for three nights in January this year. I could not fault the central location, the room, the staff, the rooftop plunge pool, the cleanliness of the hotel or the reasonable price. There were three others staying with me and we were all equally impressed by this hotel. Everything we experienced there and everyone we met from the doorman to the general-manager were faultless in their demeanour and friendliness which is something rare in busy hotels in popular tourist areas I find. The hotel location was perfect, central and so within easy walking distance to all Umhlanga Rocks has to offer. Should I return to Umhlanga Rocks I will definitely book myself in here again.
