It is situated in a very good location. My car would hit the hump underneath every time I go in or out. If you are driving a longer car, or lowered suspension car, be prepared. The staff is very friendly and willing to assist. Breakfast is the same everyday at an extra cost, if you want to stay longer, then... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were a bit put off by the way we were welcomed as the person at reception was not very friendly, but except for that the hotel is fine. The suite we had was spacious and the hotel is on a great location. Both Long Street and the V & A Waterfront are within... More

This hotel is value for money and the location is ideal. Rooms are next to a busy road so if you are a light sleeper, be prepared. Had a great room which looked out over the stadium and the Waterfront, simply loved the view. Spacious enough for a family of four, but beware the kids will have to sleep on... More

Arrived in Cape Town and wow what a start - hotel is in a great location and they also offer tours of the area. Good breakfast (extra cost) very friendly staff and even can assist with transfers to the airport. Rooms are nice and modern, very attentive staff.

We had recently read that the Protea group of hotels had been taken over by the Marriott group, so we decided to give this a try as we were visiting Cape Town. Cape Town & its surrounding areas lives up to its reputation of being one of the most beautiful cities in the world! However, the hotel has some way... More

An average hotel in the old part of Cape Town. The Building is an old-style one. Parking in the building is difficult to navigate. The hotel interior is old. The rooms are okay but worn. The staff were friendly. Breakfast was great and had variety. I had a room with a lovely view of the harbour. The vicinity in which... More

Dear Dezign99 Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We're glad you were comfortable and would stay again. We accept the parking is narrow and one has to take care - the restrictions of a high rise building in the City. Kind Regards David Wilson Poe General Manager More

Have a business trip one night stay in the hotel with great pleasure. Room was clean, spacious and has a small kitchenette which is much appreciated for the morning wake-up coffee! Restaurant is as much as in the other kind of hotels, service friendly and good. Walking distance to the waterfront area with bars, shops and other activities.

Enjoyed the visit, however, mostly because of location and not because of what the hotel offered. We did stay in the only available accommodation in the hotel as they were fully booked. If we stayed again, which we may in the future, we would definitely book the superior room because it offers much more for only a small difference in... More
