    Superb

    Very comfortable, convenient for shopping and touring and friendly staff. The environment makes one feel of really being on holiday. The best was that the check out time was 11am, fantastic

    This was my 3rd visit to Cape Town and previously had stayed at the Capetonian and Ritz but the Protea President was a class above. The room was very spacious and comfortable and the facilities were what I and my family expected. Staff were very courteous and helpful.The buffet breakfast was good but I think that the food served needs to be changed from time to time. During the 15 days we stayed it was the same food served every day during breakfast. The hotel must also cater for those who don't eat beef and pork. The service at the bar was very satisfactory. Unfortunately we could not enjoy the pool as the water was very cold. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the President and definitely we'll recommend the Protea chain of hotels to our friends and hopefully my family will choose another Protea hotel for our next holidays.

    Ther is very little to complain about. We were treated very well and the very few things we did'nt appreciate makes no difference to our whole appreciation of the quality service we wre offered.

    Superb

    The position of the hotel is excellent being close to both city and beaches. The staff are very friendly and attentive.The mid-priced room had plenty of space and also includes an element of self-catering facility such as micro-wave and fridge which were both useful during our stay.

    Very good

    I have stayed the second time and would prefer to be here as it neither has the bustle of a business hotel nor is it too far away from business centers. The service is good and staff is cordial. One has the choice of rooms overlooking the Lions Head mountain or the ocean at Bantry bay.

    Vegetarians suffer it out with very little choice. Charging parking fee from hotel guests is obnoxious. The rate at which I got this accomodation, I would have preferred to stay at the Westin Grand near the conference venue.

    The facilities were good and hotel looked nice. Modern. Swimming pool and sunbathing options were great.

    I would not recommend to stay there - staff was rude and nobody cared that you are guests. In the room, there was only one electric socket, minibar was empty and even glasses you had to order from the room service. Cleaning lady did not clean the glasses, only made up the beds. Travel desk worked only when somebody was there, which was usually 30 min in the morning. Overall, it was a bad experience, although Cape Town has a lot to offer.

    Easy going and relaxed with friendly efficient staff

    Could do with regular or timed shuttles to nearby attractions as otherwise taxi costs escalate

    Superb

    Nice rooms, good breakfast. Dinner was very good, even though there was not a lot to choose from. The location is very good as well, about a 5 minutes walk from the coast/beach in a safe area & the tourist hop on/hop off bus has a stop outside the hotel. Very convenient!

    Household staff was quite noisy on Sunday morning, not ideal. Check out at 11am, instead of 12am. But me checking out at 11.30 was no problem ;)

    Fabulous

    Reception staff was very friendly. Our room was very neat and tidy and looked very modern. Breakfast was also very nice

    The travel desk operator, Guus, was extremely rude and abrupt. She gave the impression that because we are South Africans and not foreigners that she was not interested in helping us. Breakfast staff could be more attentive when offering coffee and clearing dirty plates etc.

    Friendly staff, comfortable room and outstanding food! The breakfast buffet is magnificent to say the least and the dinner was excellent. The chef is to be complimented.

    Lack of hot water in the room. Shower took forever....

    Great breakfast and outdoor relaxation around pool area. Good transport fascilities. Rooms are sizable and relatively comfortable.

    Your website says flat screen tv in rooms. We had a 32cm old box shape tv set. Some staff members are not friendly at all. The rooms needs to be modernised particularly bath and shower.
