A refurbishment of the Protea Hotel Witbank starts on January 3, 2012, which will see all the public areas and 74 standard rooms given a multi-million rand facelift.
The hotel will be closed from January 3 to January 18 for the first phase of the project which comprises the entrance, reception area and all demolition work in the restaurant, lounge and bar areas. The second phase will consist of completing the renovation of the restaurant and bar areas, after which work will begin on the bedrooms.
Derick Tait, Managing Director of the Boulevard Hotel Group that manage the Protea Hotel Witbank, said GUESTS would not be inconvenienced in any way by the renovations; "We are setting up a full restaurant, lounge and bar area in our main conference venue while the public areas are being refurbished. We will be renovating the rooms floor by floor so as to cause as little disruption as possible."
The crisp and clean Protea Hotel Witbank offers relaxed and comfortable accommodation conveniently located one hour from OR Tambo International Airport and Pretoria on the N12 and N4 respectively. The hotel is within easy reach of the N4, the gateway to the Mpumalanga Lowveld and Mozambique, and is the ideal stopover for travellers en route to the Kruger National Park or the Northern Province.
Approximately 15 Protea Hotels across Africa have been refurbished in the past 18 months. The upgrades, done in conjunction with the various property owners, have collectively topped more than R300m. Protea Hospitality Group Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue, Danny Bryer, said the revamp of older property stock was in line with the company’s vision to provide accommodation excellence matched only by the company’s institutional service excellence. “We look forward to seeing the new Protea Hotel Witbank when the refurbishment is complete next year.” Bryer said.
