Reviewed 15 August 2014

We had a nice superior room in this hotel. Good breakfast and friendly staff. In the morning we had no water in the bathroom, but we could use the facilities of next door Hotel Upington. We hakd our shower over there.

Spent one night here due to a medical emergency and found staff to be very polite, helpful and considerate. Were instrumental in helping us sort our problem and to be able to continue our holiday. Comfortable room, clean and spacious. Hotel is not in a beautiful location, it fronts a main road and from what we could see of its river frontage at the rear this was not picturesque, but it is a great stop over en-route to the Kgalagadi and has all the food shopping places you need in close proximity.

After a 860 km ride on our Harleys from Lambertsbay on the West Coast we looked forward to booking into a hotel have a cold shower and relax, We stayed at the Oasis hotel in Upington on Sunday evening with the worst experience ever. Our room was room 107. On arrival I asked the front desk for a porter to help us with our bags,no assistance were given, the airconditioning system in our room did not work, no water in the fridge, the tv reception was bad with no reception on channel 5. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. We stay in Protea hotels quite often but I do not think a Protea will see me again. I do think that the Oasis is the worst of all hotels I ever visited.

This hotel is a reasonable and economical choice for your stay in Upington. The location is quite central, next to the Orange River, with plenty of shops and restaurants within a few minute’s walk. The area seemed safe, no problem going out for a walk or run. Right across the road is another Protea Hotel, so don’t get confused!

Check-in was efficient and all staff were very friendly and helpful. The first thing you notice is that there are tons of curtains hanging everywhere in the hotel – over windows, over walls, around the staircases – so the place seems just a little dark and gloomy. The rooms are small and very comfortable, but again dark due to fairly small windows and overhanging veranda type structures on the outside of the building. The room was showing some signs of age or perhaps just poor workmanship, even though it appears to have been fairly recently renovated. Free Wifi is provided and there is a small computer desk to work on.

There is no gym in the hotel, however you are permitted to use the gym in the other Protea Hotel across the street. It’s a fairly small affair with a few pieces of mediocre-quality cardio gear (bike, treadmills, rower) and a decent quality multigym. No free weights though.

The breakfast buffet is quite good, with a good selection of fruit and hot & cold breakfast dishes, as well as eggs made to order. I didn’t eat any other meals there, opting for the Spur steak house right across the street at the other Protea hotel.

Overall I had a good stay here and I recommend it to other travelers, however next time I’m in Upington I will opt for the other Protea hotel across the street, since it has the gym and a nice outdoor pool and bar courtyard area.

Reviewed 16 May 2013

Being a prokard member and paying corporate rates, I somehow expected a better room that what I ended up with. The room was small, next to a linen closet on the 1st floor (115). One windows is straight into a wall while the other faces a pillar. As far as I can summise, no windows would actually be a better option. It is not like Upington is NYC with towering buildings when views are hard to come by. This is practically a dorp with few tall buildings, and yet the hotel managed to find the smallest and least attractive room in the hotel. The working desk is clattered with coffee machines and the like, making the working area less of a working area. The location of the hotel is brilliant as it is close to my business interest and overlooking the Orange river. Parking is however impossible since the small parking is shared with a Spur Steak Rank next door. As I type this, there is endless noise from the room above with things being dropped to no end. I dread going to sleep as I expect I will be woken up constantly. My last stay here was brilliant and the room (108) was brilliant.

Room Tip: If you can, avoid room 115.

A well-loved, pimped Protea Hotel next to the Orange River. Best rooms have a view of the river and courtyard. Cleans, beautiful and everything you expect from a new 4 star Protea. Slick, elegant and modern - the excellent barman will serve up anything you want (and is willing to learn if its not on the menu). Staff is unobtrusive but waiters can be missing in action when you need them most. Food is as excellent as the wine list. Not recommended for families with young children. Highly recommended for everyone with a budget and a taste for comfort and refinement after a long hot day.

Stayed only one night and yet looked after so well. Our room overlooked the main road and was wonderfully laid out and designed. We had an issue with the air con in the room. The response from reception and maintenance was superb. There were up in a flash and had it working straight away. Thanks guys. Breakfast, huge and plentiful.
Thanks for a wonderful stay.
