This is a Protea Hotel. With the name President, you would think it would be "top of the line". Perhaps it was just timing and maintenance but we stayed in 5 or 6 Protea hotels in South Africa and this one ranks ranks low. If there is a large group meeting at the time that you are here, the restaurant... More

Excellent hotel, rooms, service, restaurants and poolside eatery. Spent a couple of good days there in March 2015 - had lunch by the pool. Excellent buffet breakfast choices and dinner could be a la carte or buffet.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at The President. I really like it there. The rooms are comfortable, clean and modern. The bar and restaurant area is a vibe. If you like big and commercial hotels, with visitors literally from all over the world, then this hotel is for you. The swimming pool, although under renovation is also... More

I stay at this hotel regularly and have always been satisfied with the hotel and service. First disappointment was to find the swimming pool under renovation resulting in lots of dust and noise during the day. I would appreciate having been warned beforehand and could have chosen an alternative hotel. To add to this , on Sunday no cushions or... More

This is a very difficult hotel to rate. On a plus point the room was large and comfortable with a massive bed. Staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much for them. However the catering was the bad point. Funnily enough there were a party of German tourists on the next table hence the Basil Fawlty and Manuel... More

Everything was great, except I was a bit thrown off when we were charged R 60.00 per car for the night. We did not want to open an account so when we placed the order for room service we requested they brought the credit card machine with. This never happened and was then phoned to ask how we are going... More

Spend a long weekend at the hotel, great hotel clean at a reasonable price and a great breakfast. A nice little gym and the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks to wake u up. The area seems safe for nice walks along the promenade and their are great little restaurants nearby. The staff is friendly and the service... More

If you're looking for great service and value in one of the most beautiful parts of Cape Town make sure you stay at the President Hotel! I stay there whenever I visit the city. Great for business and pleasure.

The location of the President's Hotel and the sea view is surely one of it's greatest features. But it is certainly not the only reason to stay there; the staff are all friendly and breakfast too good

Well situated hotel for sea views and access to Seapoint, restaurants and services. Friendly staff, nice room. I requested a normal room, even though I use a wheelchair, because I wanted the view from an upper story. The suite that I was upgraded to was great but a slightly wider door into the shower would help. Also, a plastic stool... More
