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

Was just there for 6 nights as part of a family trip. Rooms were great - loved having a separate living room than bedroom. The rooms were cleaned immediately after we would leave for the day, which was great as it meant we never had to wait around to ask. Rooms were super clean and we had better sleep there... More

This was a beautiful hotel within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The rooms were spacious and quiet. The pool area was very nice. The lobby was beautiful, with a winding staircase that went down to the elegant restaurant. The breakfast buffet was delicious. The only problem I had was, room service was slow and dinner in the restaurant... More

I stayed here with a friend in April 2014 (sorry for the late review!!) for a few nights on a first time trip to Cape Town. We were welcomed by the hotel Manager/Duty Officer who told us about local amenities, wifi, restaurant hours etc. He was extremely helpful in letting us know what to do with the short amount of...

The protea president is a great place to stay. Just a few minutes by taxi to the fantastic harbour area and the rooms are really very good both in size and quality. We had a room at the rear of the hotel but with a great mountain view. The breakfasts here are fantastic with probably one of the best choices... More

I have stayed at the Protea Hotel President in Bantry Bay many times and I really like the ambience, particularly the beautiful pool in the mornings while it is still calm and reflecting the sky and surroundings. The hotel is almost ideally situated for lovely walks along the seaside through Bantry Bay to Clifton and Camps Bay, on the one... More

Hotel Class
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
