“A star on the Garden Route”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

This hotel in George ticks all the boxes for a stay on the garden route. It sits on the side of George golf course and is just a nice distance from the town itself.
Our room which was large and very comfortable had a balcony overlooking the golf course the only downside was that it was one big long balcony that was shared by all the golf course facing rooms on that side of the hotel.
It would have bee nice to have had solid partitions for the extra privacy it would have afforded but that is only a small detail.
The hotel has two Small swimming pools set amongst some of the chalets which formed part of the complex

Room Tip: Any of the rooms with balconies overlooking the golf course

Friendly staff, strong wi-fi, comfortable rooms and stunning views. Our room overlooked the golf course which we could enjoy with a drink from our patio. Work desk and bar fridge made it comfortable to work away from the office.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and reserve a deluxe room for extra space and a beautiful view.

 simple and elegant 3 star hotel ( some may rate it 4 ) which has the perfect location set amidst the hills and close to serene nature making your stay nothing less then heavenly.  A chalet style property having good rooms ( decor could have been better ). The room we stayed in opened near the swimming pool giving a feeling of private pool. Staff is courteous andv ready to serve with a smile. Great place to stay when you are visiting George.

Good Afternoon,
We spent the weekend at Protea Hotel King George the 29th November – 1st December, we stayed in room 417.
I would just like to compliment ALL the staff at Protea Hotel King George for an awesome stay. From the moment we walked in and met the two smiling friendly ladies at reception, to the very minute that we had to check out, we were treated like royalty and every one of the staff had a smile to share!!
The breakfast and service in the restaurant was excellent, the food was amazing, we felt like sitting there all day. The atmosphere was just great! The room service and cleaning staff was just as amazing! We would leave to have breakfast and then return to a beautiful clean bedroom.
I would recommend the Protea Hotel King George to anyone who was visiting George.
Thank you for an amazing stay and extraordinary service!! We will definitely be visiting again soon.

I brought in a group of Indian clients to the King George Hotel which is situated in a residential area of George, Western Cape and were recieved with a warm welcome. Once we checked in we went to our rooms and I was pleasantly surprised to find a very comfortable room with all the amenities. The television had a generous amount of channels and there was facilities for coffee and tea to be made.
Dinner and breakfast were al carte and very tasty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All my clients were happy with there two day stay there. A few minor problems though, the wifi, which 500megs were given free, was very weak in the rooms and in some cases non existent.
The other thing was the windows in the bathroom and toilet are large and made a few of my clients feel a bit exposed even though it was frosted glass.
Apart from that. ..a magic place to stay.
Just a last note that if you need to go to the stores you will need transport as the hotel is located outside the town.

We had a one night stay over before our flight back home. This hotel is situated on a golf course with stunning mountain views. Really friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money. The rooms are a bit dated in the main building, yet still comfortable and we found it very clean.
