Great location, great staff and lovely rooms. I'd definitely stay there again. In fact I've stayed there a number of times already and don't really have a bad word to say about it. My only minor criticism is that there isn't any food available after 10pm so when you get off a long flight and arrive late there is no... More

We stayed at this hotel for seven nights during the recent South African Orthopaedic Association meeting at the CTICC. The location is great. About 5 minutes by foot to the CTICC and easy access to public transport. The receptionists at the hotel were very friendly and courteous. They made all restaurant reservations for us when requested. In particular, Luyanda and... More

Beautiful hotel, great rooms, delicious breakfast and excellent service. This hotel is ideal for the perfect family vacation. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment which was very spacious for the four of us. It was close to the V&A waterfront and many other tourist attractions that we wanted to see. This hotel satisfied me and my family and we... More

The Protea North Wharf is well positioned between centre of town and the water front. Rooms have a nice living room, an open kitchen, two separate bed rooms, one with an en-suite bath room, as well as a separate bath room. The rooms are not only huge compared to most other hotel rooms, they are very attractively priced, and well... More

This holtel is in a great location and the hotel itself lovely. We stayed in the penthouse which is very spacious and has everything you need. I feel the service really let down our stay here.

Stayed here pre cruise for 3 nights. The staff bent over backwards with information and service, they always had a smile to greet you. This hotel had a nice eatery opposite well located in cape town to icons which was easily accessible by taxi. Very clean organised lovely roof top pool ideal for families.

We re-booked here for the spacious universal room but something was just a bit off this time around. It did not take long for smoke smells to permeate the apartment. Clearly some of the hotel guests do not abide by the hotel's non-smoking policy. The following day the apartment smelt as if it was located above a restaurant. On with... More
