I arrived at this Hotel as load shedding started. Non South Africans, load shedding is our term when the electricity provider is unable to generate enough power, so it cuts power to a region for between 2 to 4 hours at a time. Businesses have installed their own generators to keep operating. So too has this hotel except that the... More

I love Protea hotels! This was no different. However the room was tiny the bathroom even smaller and I could not easily get in and out, of toilet. The carpet on the third floor looked dirty, and on Sunday my room was cleaned but I had no towels. I loved the wifi and the position of the hotel is great... More

It was a short stay over with no meals enjoyed in the restaurant, due to commitments at other venues. I did have to send out e mails late at night and fell asleep. Upon waking up at 03h30, I requested room support with my server. The night staff immediately came up to the room and tried their level best to... More

Beautifully decorated and very recently done. The rooms are fairly small, the breakfasts are average, it is better to go around the corner to the small shopping centre for a much healthier breakfast. Staff seem very thin on the ground and so the service is very slow. They also charge for underground parking.

The hotel has recently been refurbished in modern tones of grey. The lobby is very clean and the rooms tastefully decorated. The location is a block from the ocean and restaurants are within walking distance. Parking is available in the hotel for a small fee. Don't try and find parking outside as there is not enough.

Situated in the heart of Sea Point, this hotel is perfect for a short or long stay. Rooms are clean, staff very helpful, breakfasts are quite adequate and there is a Spur Steakhouse next door with facilities and play areas for kids. Prices are reasonable and having a ProKard helps for discounts. Parking is available at R40 per night as... More

Nice hotel and location in Cape Town. Visited there in late March with a group of six on a Gate 1 tour. Breakfast was good every morning. Walking distance to: banks, fast food, grocery store, liquor store, drug store, etc. The rooms very in size, but well maintained with decent views. Overall a nice visit.

Nice place to stay in. Not very far from the city attractions. This hotel is also a part of the university which used to be a prison once. People are nice and friendly but Internet is not the best at all. If you don't want to spend too much on accommodation as a family it can be ideal.
