The Protea Wanderers was a wonderful respite in the busy city of Johannesburg. My room was comfortable, quiet, and well-lit (a rarity in hotel rooms these days). Lux Transportation, the on-site transportation service, was on-time picking me up at the airport and generally concerned and accommodating in handling all my transportation needs, as well a reasonably priced. The food in the dining room was very good, and the staff was polite and helpful on every occasion.

Hotel well run and staff well trained. Only half of 2nd floor is non-smoking, so 2nd floor elevator lobby stinks of cigarettes. Hotel should make entire floor smoking or non-smoking. Security was good, felt safe the whole time. Breakfast buffet was good but pricey. Great gym, although it is located in the garage which is odd.

It's not walkable to the nearest Gautrain station, but they offer a shuttle that runs about every 90 minutes, but not at all on weekends... More of a business hotel here. Not a lot in the area, a few small restaurants several blocks away. But the hotel has a great buffet breakfast (dinner is a little weak). Romms clean, comfortable and reliable.

The breakfast was too expensive at Rand 155. The twin beds, while comfortable, are just a little larger than a bunk bed. We had to demand that the beds be separated as they were together under one headboard and we were two people in the room (ladies) unrelated to each other.

The hotel pictures on the Expedia website are not good reflections of the hotel. It's much older and needs updating. Front desk/check in and check out was slow and irritating. Needs more supervision to become efficient. Front desk was messy and did not promote an image of professionalism.

EXPEDIA advertize Free WIFI but they wanted to charge me on check-out. When I rejected the charge they said that only 100mb was free. Luckily I had a copy of my reservation with me and they removed the charge, the "office manager" was very unpleasant about this and that left a bad taste in my mouth.

Asked for room cleaning and was told there was no one to do that although it was still before 21:00. I had to explain to the Attendant that it is the HOTEL's policy that the room can be cleaned between 8:00 - 21:00 and eventually the room was cleaned. Otherwise, I will recommend this Hotel to anyone, Great experience, Nice food, Quite neighborhood, Spacious Deluxe rooms.

Conveniently located for our purposes, close to Melrose Arch shopping mall. Safe and secure parking, made coming back to the hotel at any time of day or night very easy. All in all the hotel is very pleasant although our sleep quality was terrible. We booked a non-smoking room but for our entire stay (2 nights) the room was very uncomfortable because the air quality was vaguely smoky and our mattress stunk of tobacco/nicotine. We did let Housekeeping know about this and asked them to change the mattress and bedding because it appeared that someone had smoked heavily in the bed -- when I put my face down on the pillow the stink of tobacco/nicotine was most unpleasant. Even if Housekeeping did change the mattress -- I don't know, perhaps they just changed the bedding because there was still a vague smell of cigarette smoke and the air quality was still bad -- perhaps smoke comes through the aircon? Anyway, we did not sleep well because of this.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you very much for your detailed review. We are absolutely delighted that you found your stay safe and pleasant. My sincerest apologies for the inconvenience you suffered during your stay. This is not the standard that we uphold at the hotel. We do our utmost best to ensure that GUESTS don't smoke in our non-smoking rooms and we fine them when they do, unfortunately we are not always able to control it all the time. We will definitely have a look into this to ensure that it doesn't happen again. Kind Regards, Natalie and TEAM

I asked for a room facing the Wanderers Club on the 6th floor. Although there are no balconies there is a good view of this grand sports club and beyond to the southern and eastern horizons. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and got me through to 1-800 numbers in Canada immediately on request. The hotel grounds are directly alongside the Wanderers Club and both areas have access security together with a security presence that is apparent. The club is located within 10 minute drives to two of Johannesburg's impressive malls in Rosebank and Sandton and there are many restaurants in both areas.

My only complaints was that Breakfast cost more than supper 170 Rand and the airport shuttle cost 470 Rand. Other than these 2 small issues the hotel was in a safe area and convenient to shops and eateries. The hotel restaurant was good for lunch and supper not overpriced and the food and portions were outstanding.

We had a pleasant (and reasonably priced) evening meal where the waiter was not exactly on the ball (e.g. removing the bottle of wine when there was still half a glass in it). In contrast, I thought the breakfast was a bit overpriced by comparison with other hotels I have stayed in. I was also disappointed in the bandwidth of the WiFi -- it was far more reliable for me to use my phone as a modem. In balance, though, this was a pleasant enough stay.

The hotel was wonderful however we ate dinner at the restaurant the first night we were there and we're horribly disappointed. One meal was badly burned, the other two were tasteless. We ate out every evening after that. Pity because it would have been good to just relax and eat in every evening. Otherwise, everything was good

Me and my son were here for a business trip and a trade fair. The location of the Hotel was perfect as it was not far from Melrose Arch, a haven of great restaurants and shopping, not far from Mandela Square, also a great place to eat and shop and enjoy the high spirited evenings of Johannesburg. Was a memorable experience, overall.

Front Office staff needs to be well informed and friendly. Initially when I showed them the booking, they said it was not there. Then they checked to finally retrieve it.
