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.

On a recent business trip in Cape Town we booked 11 rooms within the hotel. These were not your average rooms - luxury apartments! Amazing,spacious,stunning. Very comfortable stay. And incredibly efficient& friendly staff. A quick walk across the way was the CTICC - perfect location and safe to walk back and forth alone.

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.
