The 4-star Protea Hotel Wanderers, nestled in the prestigious suburb of Illovo, Johannesburg, has completed the upgrade of the hotel. Business and leisure travellers can now relax in the fresh, new rooms that come with maple panelling, a floating chest of drawers, LCD televisions, new tea and coffee stations and executive work desks with marble tops.

The rooms may boast a new look, but the hotel has not abandoned its custom of placing a fresh red apple in GUESTS’ rooms every day. The hotel prides itself on personalised service and careful attention to detail and the comfort of its GUESTS is paramount.  The upgrade includes the replacement of furniture in the reception, bar and smoking lounge. These changes will be in place by the end of March 2011.

Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue for the Protea Hospitality Group, says the upgrade is part of its commitment to improving the quality of its hotels across Africa in line with our GUESTS expectations. “GUESTS expect a certain level of service from Protea Hotels, and we strive to exceed these high standards and keep pace with new, contemporary trends.”

There is a convenient 24-hour Express Deli bar and all guests become temporary members of the nearby Wanderers Club during their stay. There are a variety of room types on offer to suit all needs, but they are all elegantly decorated to create a feeling of tranquillity and comfort. The hotel is only 4 minutes drive from the M1 Freeway and is close to the Sandton Gautrain station and other attractions. These include some of the finest dining and shopping Africa has to offer at  Sandton, Rosebank or the upmarket Melrose Arch precinct.
