I've stayed here twice now. The staff are generally pleasant and helpful and the food and drinks are tasty and very cheap (by London standards anyway!). I've stayed in an upgraded room twice now with its own lounge and bedroom and it is comfortable, if a little basic. The pool area is nice but the loungers need cushions as they... More

A quite, nice and scenic place to stay in Cape Town, South Africa. Had been recently (May'2015) there as a part of a group and stayed there for 4 nights. The hotel is a walking distance from the beach and a 5 minute drive away from Campsbay (popular beach in Cape Town). An ideal place for a family of 4... More

I spent three nights here. The service was terrible, my suitcase was ransacked and the free wifi ceased to work for me. Fortunately there was a safe and my valuables were all in there. Service in the bar and the restaurant were both very slow.

Wow...what can I say about this place. Reception is warm and welcoming to all and can't do enough to help. The rooms I really like, fresh and spacious and very clean. The pool area is well maintained and has lovely views out to the ocean. I would recommend a room with a Seaview its breath taking. The area around the... More

This Beautiful Building near the waterfront of Bantry Bay in Capetown was disappointing. We stayed 4 nights and had stayed in 6 other Protea Hotels in S. Africa. The Hotel President has "issues". Public areas were clean, hallways in the hotel area were not. We had a large room with a nice view of Lions Head Mountain. The drop down... More

We booked through Amoma and were very worried as we knew nothing about them but everything went perfectly. We somehow got an upgrade and had two suites with a beautiful sea view. The Hotel was very, very busy and the front of house staff seemed harassed most of the time although always polite. Our rate included breakfast each day with... More

I had a lovely stay in this hotel. Check in was with great ease. Rooms are spacious. Bathroom has an imperfect design as the water from the shower spill a lot to the floor. The hotel is well located, and about 2 minutes walk to the beach front. It is on the edge of Sea Point and Bantry Bay, and... More
