We read some reviews before coming here and even though there quite a few bad reviews, we were pleased with the hotel and totally enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are large and really clean. The environment is generally serene and quite secure. The only downside was that we didn't get a room with nice views. We had hoped to... More

I spent most of September at the island club. The rooms are laid out well. Housekeeping did a good job on keeping the room clean. The daily breakfast was nice with hot and cold options. the staff is very helpful and quite pleasant. It is ideally located next to the mall with a short 3-5 minute walk. My room had... More

Island Club (no longer Protea) is a real hidden gem at Century City Excellent for both corporate or leisure. Take time to walk round their grounds. You will be surprised - it really is an island oasis in the heart of a modern complex. Good size rooms with self catering option or you can choose restaurant in the sister hotel... More

I stayed here on business in July 2014. Really liked the place, it is ideally suited and equipped for business people that don't like the traditional hotels where the staff keep on bugging you. What I liked about the hotel: * Location. Ideally located within the Century City complex, a short walk to the restaurants @ Canal Walk * Nice... More

The hotel was taken over by the SINGER group in August 2014. This means Prokard discounts and rewards no longer apply. They have kept the same amazing staff and the rooms are also unchanged. Will be interesting to see what, if any, changes the new owners will make.

This is really a very nice bed & breakfast experience. You get bed and a full breakfast. There is gym though, you do have to ask each time for someone to unlock it for you. EXPECT a bed and breakfast experience and you will be ok. If you think this is a 4 Star as advertised you will be bummed.... More

I didn't really like my experience at century city mostly for family reasons. What deceived me also was the lack of breakfast varieties in the restaurant. There were always the same stuffs to eat, no lunch nor dinner. However I enjoyed the rest of the accommodation and cleanliness of the hotel.

After complaining we were told on numerous occassions that the hotel was fully booked but we were promised to be moved to another room as soon as there was a vacancy available. That never materialsied and we were... More
