I wanted a room in Cape Town for 2 adults and 2 children (age 12/14). Because of security reasons in SA I did not want the children in a separate room unless the hotel could guarantee it was next door. I searched high and low for rooms. Every other hotel that also met our other requirements in Cape Town that... More

The stay was a very pleasant one. The hotels position is far enough away from the touristy things but close enough to get to them efficiently. Access to the highways was easy enough. The breakfast was great and staff were very friendly. The room was great . A lot of space and very comfortable.

Extremely slow service. It took forever to check in. It took forever for the room to be cleaned and ready for us. It took forever to get the bill at the restaurant, and they forgot to bring out our soup. The food was painfully average, reminded me of diners in Eastern Europe actually. Do not come here.

Had a lovely couple of days stay in The Protea Hotel - President. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms large and comfortable. We enjoyed the little kitchenette in our room as it was useful especially travelling with our young children. We had a mountain facing room and if we went back we would request a sea facing room....

1st and foremost, allow me to say this.. I remember reading the reviews on this site a day or two before my check-in time, and i was wondering if i had chosen the right place.. there was(and I believe there still is) a lot of negative reviews. With that being said, i tend to think that perhaps, partly one of... More

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at this hotel. The rooms are spacious with huge comfortable beds. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We didn't eat in the restaurant but the menu looked good. The room service we had was great value and good meals. The bar prices were cheap - good range of cocktails. We hired a car... More

We went to Protea President for a weekend break away, and we were pleasantly surprised. It was winter and cold, but we were spoiled with great hospitality, neat and clean rooms,great food at the breakfast buffet.We went home relaxed. I would suggest they keep My City bus cards at reception to sell to guests. This helps one to get around... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights as part of a tour of SA. We had a great room on the 3rd floor with a view over the pool and of the ocean. The separate living area was really useful. The location is great for local amenities or a quick/cheap taxi to the waterfront etc. The service was great... More

Do not stay here if you need to have a nap mid day. I have no choice but to stay here for business and no rooms seem immune from the noise of intermittent hammering. I am on my third so called quiet room for two stays here this month and have been reawoken from trying to nap after a night... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The atmosphere of this magnificent sea-side 4 star hotel in Cape Town’s Bantry Bay area is relaxed, yet professional. For business or leisure there is no better choice of venue. Surrounded by the stunning Lion’s Head Mountain range and Atlantic Ocean, the hotel’s spacious rooms offer all the facilities that one would expect from a world-class hotel. One can enjoy a cocktail in the Senate Bar or a sundowner on the terrace, overlooking the magnificent rim-flow pool to the ocean. Once you have taken in the spectacular view you can let the Islands Restaurant tantalise your taste buds with its sumptuous cuisine. When you are not visiting the famous Clifton Beach, the V&A Waterfront or Table Mountain why not pamper yourself at the Amber Hair Salon, or take in the sites of Cape Town with a tour on the hop-on-hop-off Cape Town Site Seeing Bus. Not only can you purchase these tickets from the Travel Desk but you can also use the bus stop situated right outside the hotel as your starting point. Once you have discovered its remarkable variety of facilities, impeccable service and consummate luxury, you will agree that there really is no better choice of venue than Protea Hotel President, and it’s without a doubt the most eminent Cape Town hotel on the Platinum Mile. ... more   less
