This hotel is a 20 minute walk from the V&A waterfront and you can make substantial savings on your hotel by being here. The hotel is a typical chain but with a few differences, the service has a small boutique feel to it and the staff are all excellent. The rooms are quite a good size, with amazing showers!! The...

Also 1 block to a big grocery store..the staff is very friendly...rooms were nice..pool very small and not enough deck chairs. My complaint... More

We chose this hotel for its central location and to that extent is was a good choice. The hotel is clean, comfortable and secure but the road noise is intrusive. Our room was well equipped and complimentary Wi-Fi was available. Breakfast is offered at and extra price of R175-00 per person which we thought was excessive. We enjoyed a full... More

The decor is very modern. Security is excellent, you need your room card to get to your floor. They have a milkshake bar that is phenomenal, both adult and virgin, and the burgers are great. There's a lap pool, and they have a regular restaurant as well. The room was very comfortable and the staff was accommodating. The only negative... More

We stayed at Victoria Junction for 4 nights while in Cape Town. We found the hotel to be in a great location, and we could walk down to the V & A Waterfront in under 10 mins, and up to Long Street and the City Bowl in about 15. The hotel is a contemporary style, and has some interesting design... More

Hotel is located close to the Capetown International Conference Centre approximately 1.4 Km walk. The Seapoint is approximately 2Km; a nice short run every morning. You can run 10Km or further along the beaches to Clifton and Camps Bay. Close to Greenpoint apparently gaytown and Bokaap which is Cape Malay. Very central and short distance walk to Longmarket St where... More

Very pleased. Helpful staff, decent meals, great price. A 15 minute walk from the aquarium/shops and close to great coffee shops. Very easy walk to the blue and red line buses. I would definitely stay here again and will be the first hotel I look for when visiting.

I managed to get lost, so phoned the hotel for directions. Gareth, who was on duty, was extremely helpful and knew exactly how to get me to the hotel. Kudos to Gareth for his patience and professionalism! The hotel itself was pleasant, and the room clean and spacious. Breakfast was also good, with friendly staff. I'd recommend it.

Good Hotel. Staff friendly. Loft rooms fantastic. Restaurant and room service choice minimal. Great place to base for business as central for all parts of CT. We do quite a bit of business every year in Cape Town and although I have stayed at better hotels……..this one is still the one I would come back to for value.

Our March holiday in 2015 started off with a stay in Cape Town, we wanted to be near the V&A Waterfront with good access to the nearby golf courses and the Protea fitted the bill. Not outstanding but truly functional with good standard of room and location within a 50 Rand Taxi from the V&A. Staff very friendly and good,... More
