    The hotel staff were very friendly and approachable.

    On the first night, the linen,particularly the pillows had cigarete odour.

    Nice

    Friendly staff and beautiful scenery.

    Air conditioning in our room didn't work (Room 256). We arrived to a room -with only one small towel and one bath towel even though we booked it for 2 adults and 2 children. Complained at reception where after we only received one more bath towel?? Restaurant struggled to handle the large amount of guests for dinner. We were busy with dessert before they cleared any plates off the table.

    The hospitality and the attention you are given by the entire staff.

    When you bbok for the game drive in the park the hotel charges r60 P.P. for making such a booking without notifying us.

    Because it's at the actual gate to KNP its like staying at a camp inside the park and dawn/dusk game drives are easily taken from the hotel.

    During our 6 night stay breakfast and dinner were included. The food quality at the hotel was very poor! They did have variety but it was more like pub food. They have an issue with hygene. The breakfast tables were set the night before and are outdoors. Cuttlery was left out overnight? Bird life and monkeys frequented the tables for scraps. The worst case was when we found a maggot on the brie cheese at the morning buffet, which they removed after we pointed it out to them. We visited in September 2010. We really do hope they will improve the food quality at Protea Kruger Gate because everything else in the hotel is great and the location is fabulous.

    I was close to Kruger Gate and the shower had good water pressure.

    Our rooms were horrible!! Stains and holes in the ceiling was what we looked at every night before we went to bed. Our patio door would not shut entirely and left a 3-inch gap that let the cold air in at night and the deadbolt on the patio door litterally came off in our hands!! And the bellman argued with me when I did not want him to take my bags.

    Very nice and so close to the Kruger National Park.

    Great

    Its close proximity to the Kruger Park as it is right outside the gate and the way they have made it, it looks like that we are inside the Kruger Park. The viewing deck to watch the stream for animals and the miniature golf course..

    I paid the hotel receptionist Ms. Sena full money in cash before checking out but was unpleasantly surprised to find out that inspite of doing so the hotel once again charged the entire sum to my credit card. This was definitely not expected out of a good group like the Protea group who runs that place.
