Car park is under the hotel and charged at 40R per night. Customer service was excellent from all staff members, always polite and well mannered. Swimming... More

We stayed there for a weekend and had a lovely room with a seperate living room and kitchenette. The view of the ocean, harbour, Robben Island and the Waterfront from the big balcony were breathtaking.When making a booking, make sure to ask for a sea facing room with a balcony on one of the upper floors.

I have been a loyal Protea Hotel supporter all my life, but this Hotel is an insult to the Protea Brand. I stayed in room 52 (fifth floor) The hotel is dated and in desperate need of rennovation They charge R40 per night for parking, a first for me! especially as I had no choice but to pay it. The...

We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel, and to be honest, by South African standards, the rooms were small (felt like we were back in Europe). The facilities were simply and the service average. I dont think we will stay there again, there are much better places in Cape Town that I have stayed at before. The only thing... More

Ideal location. Close to V&A waterfront, green point stadium, golf course, restaurants, cafes, supermarket, city centre, harbour. Hotel offers spacious rooms, lovely pool. Views of green point stadium, table mountain, signal hill and lions head. They serve a great fish n chips on the pool deck.

There is nothing particularly luxurious about this hotel, but the rooms (apartments) are very spacious and the location is great if you want to be near the city and waterfront. Sleeper couch in the lounge and a large private bedroom. Service is very good. Dont expect a full kitchen though, it's just a very basic kitchenette. No oven. Nice large... More

Very 3 *, good location, good service, parking available. Simple, you can self-cater as rooms have a kitchenette. Would stay again for business or for ease of access from this area. Free wifi a bonus, and personal touches like chocolates and a note on the bed are appreciated.

Handy location and good self-catering rooms in this value for money hotel. Good for going out jogging around the waterfront and stadium area, handy parking in the basement too. All round good value choice for CT.
