I'd stay here again if I needed to save money for better accommodation elsewhere. There's a lot to see and do in Cape Town so we weren't in the hotel much. It was adequate. Clean. Comfy. Handy location.

You get exactly the 3 star experience here. No more, no less. Rooms/linens are clean. Our bathroom was unbelievably loud. Staff was pleasant to a point. Wifi worked poorly despite calls to staff for assistance. Requested a queen bed and got 2 singles next to each other, had no room to change. Great views of Table Mountain. Within walking distance...

My daughter, her husband and I travelled from Malawi for a weeks stay in CT on vacation. When we called ahead, very friendly agent Genevieve answered and arranged a convenient pickup from the airport. We felt R400 charge a bit too much at the time. The friendliness of the staff and all the convenient amenities made up for it. The... More

Dear nimjas01 Thank you for taking the time to post a review. R400 for three persons for an airport transfer is pretty standard. Transport costs are escalating. We're pleased you took on the challenge of shark diving and hope you had the opportunity to enjoy lots of what Cape Town has to offer. Kind Regards David Wilson Poe General Manager More

I'd give this place 3.5 stars if I was able... We stayed here as we got a good rate through hotels.com for a weeklong stay. Been a bit spoiled from our last few trips by staying in luxury hotels. This is not a luxury hotel. However, it is clean, comfortable and totally fine, especially if you're not going to be... More

We are in a standard double room and although the bedroom and bathroom is a bit cramped, the fact that you have a lounge area with kitchenette, it makes it very comfortable for cyclists during their stay for the Argus. The staff is very friendly and the location between start & finish is very convenient.

Me and my wife stayed at Protea Hotel - Cape Castle for 5 days. Well, this place is not really at a walking distance from V&A waterfront, as they seem to claim while booking. A taxi costs around 30-40 ZAR to the waterfront. The hotel is conveniently located with many supermarkets (SPAR, Pick n Pay Express etc) and restaurants (KFC)... More

Lets start with a small gripe. They say the hotel is walking distance from the V&A Waterfront. If we went as the crow flies, then this is true, but the way you have to walk makes it a bit further, but still you can walk to the Waterfront. On the positive side the room was very clean, neat and beds... More

I stayed her for a business week and then a long weekend on holiday. I Liked: The rooms were nicely appointed, plenty of room and very clean. Good central location. Fairly priced. I didn't like: The hotel's advertising which claims this is 'literally on the doorstep' of the Waterfront. It is actually some 1,2 km away. Rooms on the lower... More

I will bookmark this hotel for future business (and every personal) trips. My room and bathroom was clean and the bed, very comfortable. It is in a great location, the service is efficient and the staff are helpful.
