The hotel is ideally situated in the main street and with very easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops, which is very convenient after a long day of wine tasting !! We stayed for 2 nights and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. The room was very comfortable, spacious and clean... More

Admittedly we spent very little time at the hotel, as we were on a bit of a wine drinking razzle, but I found the service to be good, with quick responses when requesting things like laundry collections etc. The hotel itself though is very dated, considering that it has a 4 star rating, and could do with a bit of...

We stayed over for 2 nights part of a conference group. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room very spacious and comfortable but decor outdated to international standards. Bathroom very spacious with a separate bath and shower. Hotel walking distance to shops. Aircon in room very noisy.

Great 1 night getaway from cape town either with the wife or with the whole family. The rooms were very spacious and the view of the pool made for excellent relaxation. Since the hotel is in the town, there are a number of shops within walking distance to explore. We enjoyed the breakfast, watching the hustle and bustle of tourists... More

Recently stayed over here as part of an extended tour of Overberg and was enormously impressed with friendly responsive service of both Receptionist front desk as well as Restuarant staff. The Hotel is ideally situated with beautiful views and especially Breakfast was scrumptious providing great selection and value.

We just love Franschoek. All our trips to the Cape includes a trip to this beautiful town. The Protea is in a good location. Walking distance to everything there is to see. Everything in the hotel was fine. Well decorated room and big bathroom. Everything is clean. Beautiful settings around the pool area, where a sumptuous breakfast was served. Staff... More

Trying to get a last minute weekend booking in Franschhoek is difficult, and we were lucky that the Protea had a room – every other hotel and B&B we’d tried were fully booked. Everything about our stay was fine; the staff were good, the room clean and comfortable, there was a decent bathroom, etc. But the whole place is like... More
