I stayed for 6 nights recently on my business trip. I chose this place as the Protea group has joined Marriott's partner hotels. The location is easy to access and I was able to go do my work easily. But getting a Taxi was a bit tricky during the evenings. The room was good, clean and well kept, with a... More

Great view from Balcony, we could see the sun set and rise from our balcony, and see Table Mtn from our shower with hot water. Good, comfortable beds. Room service was always fast. All the staff was friendly and very helpful.

General: This review is based on a booking of a minisuite with sea view. The conclusion is that the Protea Cape Castle hotel is a clean hotel with friendly staff and a spacious and modern room with a nice view. However the main feeling is that the Protea Cape Castle hotel is not a four star, but more a three... More

The entire portfolio of Protea hotels was recently acquired by Marriott. They don't have Marriott flags yet but there are using Marriott's reservation system. The hotels are average but you will notice that you are not staying at a Marriott. Getting there & checking in: The hotel is ~ 20-30 minutes from the airport. We called the hotel in advance... More

The location is very convenient to the Waterfront, and there are good restaurants and shops nearby. Accommodations are comfortable, and the "standard" rooms are more than adequate for a couple or three. Kitchenette was also more than adequate. The staff was generally helpful, and really rose to the occasion when we had a problem. But there is one big negative:... More

Had a very very pleasant and comfortable stay. Having 3 toddlers, staying there was very comfortable and very convenient. Thank you for the two cot-beds for my twins (usually hotels don't have enough for one family) and the clean couch-bed (which in some hotels is normally neglected). It's was well situated for our needs. Parking was secure and concealed appropriately... More

Stayed for 2 nights with overseas business visitors. Hotel Ok if a little shabby. Rooms comfortableand very spacious but aircon noisy and inefficient. Lobby,dining room and bar all merged so no real place to sit and converse privately. Breakfast very mediocre and not worth the price. Service friendly

Now I usually don't like to leave a negative review but in this case I feel as though I do not have a choice. Protea Hotel is nice and it includes secured parking in what appears to be a garage under the building of the hotel. You can't really go wrong with the views here;they are all amazing. The "room"...
