My stay in Protea Hotel Cape Castles made me feel like I was staying in my flat in Kenya. It was so homely with spacious rooms. I had a bedroom with double bed, Lounge room with couch and television, Kitchenette with set of utensils and bathrooms with bathtab and showers. The staff are so friendly and the food is delicious.... 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.

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

Dear Musa N Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are pleased you were generally satisfied but acknowledge that the parking is tricky and has a steep gradient. One needs to progress carefully. Kind Regards General Manger David Wilson- Poe 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

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
