Protea Hotel by Marriott Upington
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Upington
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We stayed here for one night in May 2014. The recently renovated hotel was in excellent condition and the service was superb. There is secure parking and clean, spacious rooms. All in all, we're glad we chose this hotel.

There is nothing much that can go wrong with a Protea Hotel. Upington's Protea Hotel was fairly priced, without a doubt the best place to stay in the town.

Food was very good, although it was slightly on the expensive side. However not more expensive than other hotel's room service.

Rooms are amazing. Well kitted. Super Clean.

Room Tip: The rooms are quite fantastic on the first floor. Own Balcony overlooking the Hotel Complex. Very ni...

Hotel now very beautifully renovated inside, just small things that still needs to be finalized, like paintwork etc. Service still as good as always. Staff very friendly & quick. The new restaurant inside is also very beautifully renovated with new furniture etc. Food & menu is very good: better than the franchise restaurant just next to the hotel we used to eat in the past. The in-hotel restaurant is much better. Might be the best in whole of Upington. The pool bar area is also VERY beautifully renovated and very nice for sipping a cocktail. When driving from Namibia to Gauteng or the Free State, this hotel is a must for overnight purposes. When being a Prokard holder, one could even stay for free using Protea Hotel's vouchers. Breakfast is also very good: four star quality for sure... The new coffee machines in the rooms are a WINNER! Drinking a fresh espresso coffee is 5 star! You make my day!!!

Room Tip: Choose the ones looking out over the river behind the hotel...

As a returning guest, service and check in was disappointing. The hotel was virtually fully booked and the previously good experience remained just a memory. No soap or body wash available in the room. No consistent connectivity with the Wifi. A ridiculous fee of R18 for a cup of coffee!!! I will be exploring guest houses for my next trip.
