Very Good

It was a good experience however we had some problem at our arrival, they did not find our reservation and we had to wait a long time. We paid extra for an ocean view and the room did not have a really ocean view.

Walk to the beach.

Loved the hotel. Booked a 1 bedroom apt. and had wonderful view of Table Mountain. The breakfast was great and location to shopping, the waterfront and other hot spots in CT were great. Really safe and a range of options when it comes to transport. You can take local transport to city center for less than 1USD both ways, a taxi for about o10USD one way or the On/Off bus. The only complaint is that the fitness center was a underwhelming with one stationery bike and an antiquated stair climber. Other than that, perfect stay.

Excellent Hotel!

A very good hotel with excellent customer service. The food was excellent with both food and drink modestly priced. Our room with a kitchenette and living room situated on the top floor was very nicely furnished and cleaned to a high standard. The staff couldn't do enough for us and we throughly enjoyed our stay there. We will definately stay at a Protea Hotel in the future!

Great all round hotel

Spent 9 nights at the hotel in November. Apart from being about an 80 rand taxi ride into town, this hotel is perfect for relaxing out of the main city centre. Bar on site (open till late), some shops close by, but not many restaurants - so you'll probably need to go into town (V&A) and mix it with eating in hotel. Pool/patio area is great. Rooms are comfortable but not European 4* level. Overall, I'd highly recommend this as a place to relax - out of city centre, close enough to get in for food, but great location to explore further down the coast too. If you want to be in the thick of the city though, this isn't for you!

Review of Protea Hotel President

The hotel was fabulous. The rooms were of good size and staff very friendly and helpful. There was a person there that assisted in booking tours and arrangements of taxi which aided immensely in getting around town. The free breakfast buffet was exceptional.
