Good value for money at this 3 star rated establishment with neat rooms and good access from N1.If your need a comfortable stay at a reasonable price, this is where you can go. Close to Tyger Valley Mall as well as to the N1.

It is located very centrally. Did work at nearby hospital and was 5 minutes away. Service was slow and frontdesk was very incapable. Dont like the fact that the restaurant is not located in the same building as the room. Room is ok. Heater didn't work and I was very cold. Roomservice food really not up to standard

Have stayed here a couple of times, but this time I was shocked at how sad service levels have dropped here. Had a bit of issues at book- in, but it was resolved within half and hour. However dining room and room service staff need to be re- trained. You walk into the dining room and no-one explained the new... More

If you are going to be so stupid as to build a hotel overlooking a major highway (N1) that never stops, I guess you will all not think of putting in sound proof or double glazed windows. Given the fact that the main reason for staying overnight in a hotel is to sleep, this is a complete waste of money... More

I facilitated a 2-day workshop at Protea Hotel Tyger Valley. The service was excellent. The food outstanding with pastries, coffee and tea on arrival, 10h00 and 15h00 cakes and savoury snacks and a wonderful buffet lunch. Shuttle to and from the airport was arranged by Protea Hotel and were 100% on time.

My work's travel agents booked me into this hotel, and it was only then that I saw many reviews mentioning the high traffic noise levels. They weren't exaggerating! The room that I was given was so noisy that I couldn't keep the windows open but had to keep the aircon on all of the time to compensate. Traffic is busy... More

No complaints! Clean, comfortable, decent A/C, 500mb of free wifi (awesome compared to most South African hotels), and decently priced. Nice view of Table Mountain and Lion's Head. Decent on-site bar and restaurant.

This hotel was nice enough and rooms were clean. I was given a smoking room which made my eyes burn just opening the door, when I called the front desk to ask to switch to non-smoking, I was told they were all booked and so was every hotel nearby. I argued a bit and was told they would "purify" the... More

While it is understood that Protea runs a training program annually for learners, it does not excuse poor service, learners are learning but should be supervised and with supervision comes responsibility to the guests at the hotel. I stay at Protea Hotels all over South Africa, and this is the worst. Breakfast is supposed to start at 06H30, every morning... More
