We stayed at the Penthouse, and it was amazing! fully serviced 3 bedrooms all with en suites, and a full kitchen complete with washing machine, dining area and lounge! Wow! We stayed 4 nights and the stay, as well as the service was truly wonderful! This should be 5 star!

We stayed here whilst holidaying in Cape Town and can honestly say that we did not have any negative experience during the whole stay. Friendly staff, efficient and quick service. Highly recommend this hotel. Centrally located and within (safe) walking distance from the V&A waterfront.

Hubby and I stayed at the hotel over New Years for 8 nights. The hotel is made up of privately owned apartments in a rental pool, and we were renting directly from the owner. So we did not technically rent from the hotel itself, but experienced some of their services. All apartments are self catering and ours was a 1... More

this apartment styled hotel can double up as a business and holiday location . As I travel there for business it also gives me the opportunity to eat in in the basic fitted kitchen with a fridge and a microwave one is not forced to always eat hotel or restaurant food. And for the more adventurous they also have a... More

Protea North Wharf stands out for its all-round excellence - quality, value and service. Every member of staff without exception goes out of the way to make a memorable experience, and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is well positioned, accommodation is outstanding and spacious, and I would definitely return.

Right down in the business district, close to the V&A waterfront and Long Street, walking distance from many places. Loved the apartment style set up. Wish the windows had better noise control, as the street can be quite loud. Also wish they provided conditioner along with shampoo.

Was in two minds about whether to give this hotel an excellent or a very good as it really is very nice, with great rooms which are excellent value for money and outstanding professional staff, who couldn't do more to make guests feel welcome. The room was big and excellently furnished. The only downsides are things that the hotel can't... More

Booked a room and initially there was a mix up with dates (my fault). Despite this the front counter staff was very helpful and called a manager to come and assist - who did so with a smile. Arrived on the Saturday with the family, two rooms were ready and on top of it a bottle of red wine to... More

Not often you stay at a hotel that gets everything right! From the booking arrangements to the checkout, from the ordinary requests to the extra-ordinary, Protea North Wharf was able to assist without blinking an eye. The hotel room arrangement in apartment settings just worked so well. Its position close to the CTICC was perfect. This is a second visit... More

Our second visit in two years to Protea. As soon as we opened the door to our apartment it felt like we were coming home. Perfect base in Cape Town. Lovely apartment - nice, courteous and helpful staff and a good breakfast. What more could you want! 10 minutes walk to the Waterfront.
