Looks much better in paper than in real life. But the disappointment is soon forgotten when you enter their clean rooms. Ideally situated to deplore the surrounding areas.

No proper disabled facilities which is peculiar to this group!

Wifi- you get a 100MB per room so use sparingly

We stayed in the Protea for a couple of nights last week in one of the standard rooms. Our room was spacious, decorated nicely, the staff were welcoming and helpful and the location was perfect. We would recommend this hotel to all.

We stayed here for one night as part of a school hockey and netball tour to South Africa. This is a really lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, warm, cosy, with very comfy beds and great food. We were all made to feel so very welcome here and would have loved to have stayed on for an extra night or two! Brilliant all round!

My wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel for a well deserved break from the city. The stay was FANTASTIC, the staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one.

Hotel offers a selection of services plus secure parking for your vehicle. Located in the middle of town, near great restaurants and deep in the Cape's famous wine region.

Thank you Douglas (GM) and team for a great stay!

me and my girlfriend stayed from the 7th of july - 9th and it was CLASS. from the ladys at reception who organised our horse-riding and wine tours (which was unreal) to the bar men in the cock-tail bar and basically all the staff in the hotel............they were Excellent to say the least. If i go back to south africa, i will be going back to the Protea Hotel for sure. Franschhoek is a pretty cool spot as well.
