Clean, comfortable & quiet
Excellent accommodations for the price and area. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet (it was low season--so I cannot vouch for nose levels when the hotel is full). The bathroom had a spacious shower, no tub (not a problem for my visit). The restaurant provides an excellent breakfast buffet and operates for lunch and dinner. The pool area is nice. WiFi is available in the lobby lounge and dining area. The hotel provides gated security, with controlled access, for guest vehicles. The staff was gracious and accommodating from the beginning to end of our stay. We had a member of our travel party fall ill during our stay-- the staff arranged a far later than normal checkout to assist us. The hotel is convenient to Hluhluwe Game Park, offering a nice alternative lodging for those who do not desire to stay at a bush lodge. Guided safari drives are available from the resort. We found the hotel a convenient overnight before entering the park for a few days at a bush lodge. Overall, this hotel is an excellent value given price, accommodations, and area.

Paid but not paid?
We made a booking through Hotels.com for a 3 Night stay for 3 Adults including complimentary breakfast at the Protea Hotel Hluhluwe Hotel and Safaris. When we checked in we were told that our reservation did not include any complimentary breakfast. The booking receipt from hotels.com clearly stated that we had a complimentary breakfast which we presented to the staff and they said they would rectify the situation. On our first morning we proceeded to have breakfast and after our breakfast we were handed a receipt stating that we would need to pay for our breakfast. We were furious and brought this to the attention of the staff and they apologised and rectified the situation. On our 4th day during check out we were handed a surprising receipt stating that we need to pay for our stay and breakfast which was totally absurd. We had to complain and eventually were told that it was an error in the system. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, excellent breakfast, clean rooms, excellent location, however, the service received at times was really lacklustre leaving a bit of a bad taste at the end.

One night stay
The reception staff and waiters in lounge area were very friendly and polite. The lounge and reception area was very nice.on the day we checked out we spent the day in the longe waiting for somebody to arrive and the staff were so caring and really looked after us. The room was lovely and comfortable however the passage way carpets were very stained that is why did not give a perfect rate. Found the buffet dinner very expensive for what was served also found the chef rather rude

WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT IN HLUHLUWE
I am usually a Protea Hotel fan and a prokard member for 4 years - but this hotel let the brand down terribly. The hotel rooms are extremely dated and dark and in need of a facelift. The bathroom was dirty and hooks on walls are loose and broken. (I have pictures is you would like them) and there where not enough towels or coffee cups in the room. I requested additional ones from reception and had to call twice to get them delivered. It seemed as if staff are on a permanent go slow (barring Derrick in the dining room - who was great) It felt like there was a lack of staff management and no direction. The supper was appalling - at a price of R 185.00 per head the only option was a basic buffet which was tough beef and hard boiled potatoes. The starter was a very small choice of salad table with what looked like yesterdays left overs. I am sadly disappointed in this hotel and would have been better off at a BnB in Hluhluwe.
