We booked in here for the weekend as we usually stay in protea hotels. To my dissapointment, I have to agree with the other less complimenting reviews. Location was not too good, service was poor, guards were more polite than lady at reception. We were first told that it would be ok to book in at 12 but when we got there, the rooms were apparently still dirty and had to wait for 2pm. There is NO Internet connection available in the hotel rooms although that is not what is stated in the information book. The tennis court is in bad condition and we were also told that there is no longer a games room as its now used for a conference room. The room is nicely done up but the water doesn't get very hot. Neighbours are also clearly heard even when windows and doors are shut.What surprises me is that other reviewers have pointed out some of the points above and the Manager has acknowledged those issues but nothing has really been done. All in all we could have got better for the price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the heart of the adventure capital of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, a mere 15 minute drive from the Kruger National Park, Protea Hotel by Marriott Hazyview is nestled on a hill overlooking the beautiful Sand River Valley. The rooms are alluring and spacious offering all the conveniences that one expects to make this a home away from home. All our rooms overlook lush gardens that have an abundance of birdlife, adding to the feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Not to mention several spacious family rooms that provide a comfortable area for the family to relax and unwind. Lying by the pool with a sundowner, whilst admiring the stunning views of the valley and watching the kids play on the nearby trampoline and jungle gym is perfection at its best. The chefs have prepared a wide variety of dining options to ensure that we cater optimally to healthy appetites and provide special meals for our young visitors. Additional facilities include conference venues, guest internet, Boma and a children's play park - so bring your game. Nearby attractions include the Blyde River Canyon, God's Window and Pilgrims Rest to name a few. For the adrenalin seekers, exciting adventures such as hot air balloon rides, river rafting, quad biking and many more can be arranged. Guests may also experience open vehicle day and night safaris in search of Africa's "Big Five" and lesser known "Little Five." ... more less
