I got lost on my way to the hotel (while my husband was running the Comrades and getting close to the finish. When I got to reception they had no record of our booking so I had to go back to the car and get my husband's laptop with the e-mail confirmation. By this time I was really frustrated. I showed the e-mail to the receptionist lady and she asked me to e-mail it to her. When I asked if I could use the hotel's Wi-Fi, she said I could only make use of it once we have been checked in. I then tried but had to enter a password which I had to get from my husband while running the race. After the e-mail was sent I still had to wait about another 20minutes to finally get a room. Nobody bothered to help me with my luggage and later when I asked the same receptionist for a list of restaurants in the area she just scribbled a couple of names on a piece of paper, no contact details. The information she gave me I could have gotten myself on the internet. The rooms were nice, we booked a double but we got two twins pushed together. Do not think I will go back there in future. Not sure if I should blame Agoda or the Protea Hotel staff.

No complaints at all. Small niggle in that the bathroom windows opened on to passageway and felt not very private. Walking distance to the lovely restaurants and shops of Umhlanga Rocks.

Great position in Umhlanga

The initial room allocated was unacceptable due to the noise from refurbishment (drilling knocking Etc). The replacement room was superb - full suite with comfortable furnishings and close to the lift. If the refurbishment is to continue then Protea should not allocate rooms where the noise is above an acceptable level. Protea made a mistake but recovered from it very well.
