This is a lovely hotel, very smart, and when we were there, quite new I think. Here comes the "but" and it is not the hotel's fault and they did give us a discount. We think the vines surrounding the hotel had recently been sprayed so all the caterpillars had escaped and were everywhere in the hotel, on the curtains, all over the floor in the bathroom, on the outside of the walls and in the pool - quite harmless but rather unnerving! The weather may have had something to do with it too, it was April and had been quite stormy. It was such a shame as in all other respects the hotel was lovely and served a very good breakfast too. Lovely views from the dining room.
Hopefully they have resolved the problem, it was a few years ago and yes, I would stay there again. In fact, I have stayed in a few Protea Hotels and think they are very good.
