Protea Hotel by Marriott George Outeniqua
Ranked #8 of 9 Hotels in George
Reviewed 12 April 2012

I passed through George for business and selected the Protea Outeniqua Hotel for my overnight stay. It was an excellent choice. Centrally situated, lots of restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. Old but clean and homely. Excellent breakfast. Good value for money. Try the Protea Hotel Outeniqua for a good stay in the heart of the Garden Route.Suze Kieswetter

Dear Ms Suzelle Eksteen,
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. Our TEAM prides itself on friendly efficient service, clean and functional rooms. The breakfast is also one of the best in town. Known as the The Urban Hub of George because of the hotel’s position -CENTRAL and walking distance to a whole array of shops and restaurants - also makes the hotel very popular. We hope to welcome you back very soon with your next visit to the Garden Route

There are so many nice hotels in this area of the Garden Route you can avoid this one. Tiny Rooms, moldy bathrooms that are so small its unreal. If you are over 5 ft 5 you won't fit in the shower and if you do you will fall in the toilet when you try to get out. Toilets were not clean and I had to clean the pubic hair out from the last guest in the bathroom. Old fashioned tvs with very poor quality pictures. Safes didn't work in either of the two rooms we booked. They do breakfast but no other food, they get it delivered from Local Spur!!! Noisy air conditioning that frankly looks like it came from 70's. Really grubby little hotel would never ever go back or recommend it. Very pricey for really rubbish rooms and service. A total no go!! Also wifi voucher is on per room so if there are two of you only one can get wifi. Stupid. I hated this place. Drive past george and book wilderness.

Room Tip: Drive a few miles away and I'm sure you will find a nice room or opt to sleep in your car would...

Protea Hotel Outeniqua is the ideal stop if you either en route to Cape Town or Port Elizabeth – halfway sleep over. Very central. Enjoyed the stay very much! Walking distance from very good restaurants… Staff extremely friendly and helpful! AWESOME breakfast!

I stayed there for 2 days in November 2011, arrived with 2 big cooler boxes full of frozen meat and fruit-staff extremely helpfull and accommodating.
I was so impressed, that I booked again and stayed for 2 days at beginning of March 2012. I was given one of the newly renovated rooms-tastful and comfortable. Again the staff exelled in all aspects-will certainly recommend to friends and business associates.

If you are from the UK, the hotel is very much like the chain "Travel Lodge", however not as cheap. We drove into George around 10pm so we didn't really have time to explore - just pulled into this hotel off the main road. The room was quiet and sufficient but considering the abunance and quality of the guest houses on the Garden Route this made this Protea look over priced. Breakfast was extra too.
Despite the dated furnishings and basic bathroom, the staff were friendly and helpful.

Note that the free wi-fi has a limit but you can buy vouchers to extend.
