This is our family's 4th stay. Always in a 2 roomed suite and this time on the top floor. 4 nights all in. As in the past it was excellent. The hotel is always quiet and the FOH staff are slick. Pity to see the niceties of the past going- free parking and limited wifi. Sign of the times I...

My sister, niece and I stayed in room 706, which was a 3-bedroom, 3-bath penthouse. Kitchen, living room and office area were large. Employees were very warm, helpful and professional. They couldn't do enough for us, no matter the situation. Easy walk to waterfront & great little Italian restaurant across the street. I would definitely go back!

The highlight of our stay was the friendliness of the staff. Because of flight cancellation we arrived one day later than planned, but the hotel agreed to change the non-refundable reservation without hesitation. When we arrived early in the morning, they showed us to the gym where we could freshen up and change. Everybody was very friendly and helpful, and...

Great by the looks of it, spacious unit with a full shower, bath and separate kitchen area along with a nice balcony and living area. Wi-fi works great and a comfortable bed. I had a very peasant first night and a restful stay but the second night was pure torture. This was owing to gale winds blowing across and going...

We spent 7 nights and 8 days at the Protea North Wharf in a 1 bedroom apartment. Great service, very helpful and pleasant front desk staff, good walking vicinity to the Waterfront and Long Street. Breakfast was a bit pricey, but there is a market with fresh food close by; and the pizza restaurant across from the hotel was very...

I was very pleasantly surprised when I checked into this Protea Hotel. The staff were particularly helpful and professional on arrival. Rather than the usual bedroom I was expecting I was shown to a large and very comfortable 2 bedroom apartment. There was a large lounge area and open plan kitchen which was fully fitted with a fridge freezer, full...

The hotel has a small roof top pool and a small...

I stayed at the Protea North Wharf Hotel in Cape Town for the first time in March 2016 while attending a conference at the CTICC. I found the location, staff and facilities so impressive that I promised to stay at the hotel next time I visited Cape Town. So I did. My family and I spent 3 nights at the...

Service was overall good, and the hotel is situated in a nice area. However, I faced an inconsistent recognition of my Marriott Platinum benefits. I was not offered free breakfast, for example, which is a standard benefit for Platinum members. When asked about this discrepancy, the hotel staff noted, "We are still going through the merger process with Marriott." I...
