Right in the middle of Franschhoek, walking distance to various shops and restaurants. Room was lovely and clean, very spacious with all the added extras. Stunning view of the mountain. Great bar for sun downers.

I have stayed three times in this Hotel in the past few months and the reason why I stay here is because I belong to the Protea/Marriott loyalty programme. The Hotel is situated in a perfect spot with views of the surrounding mountains and at the end of the main street and attractions in Franschoek. Everything is in walking distance.... More

Fantastic short stay at the Protea Hotel. The hotel is in the perfect location on the main road, within walking distance of the popular eateries and entertainment. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was average - if not included in the price then I would suggest rather walking up the street to one of the many fine locations... More

This is the 3rd time we stayed at this Hotel and the service and friendly staff always makes it worth while to return. The Hotel is also walking distance to most shops and restaurants. My favorite of this Hotel is the breakfast in the morning with a big variety.

We spent the night here and loved it! Wish we could've stayed another night! The staff are amazingly friendly, the location is perfect, very central so we walked everywhere! Take your costume and enjoy cocktails by the pool and make sure you make it in time for breakfast! We will definitely be back.
