Thank you Danielle for sorting out my booking so efficiently and quickly - I appreciate such service. I am still waiting for responses from some hotels that I tried booking in February 2017...... Upon arrival on the 18th of April I was welcomed with a smile and assistance and even your porter was really courteous (from Nigeria). He also informed...

Highs Really large rooms with kitchen , dining room, bathroom - all beautifully finished. The extra space was really appreciated. Very friendly staff. Two tvs in each apartment :) Lows Have to pay for parking and very small gym - but nothing major to report on.

Very convenient to convention center – can see from room and about two minute [safe] walk. Room is very large and had a washer/dryer combo that we used although the directions aren't clear. While we were on the first floor yet it was surprisingly quiet at night. Gold Elite so received free breakfast, which was very good. Gym is in...

The hotel is conveniently located between the V&A Waterfront (10 minutes walk) and Long Street. The rooms are very spacious, modern and clean and come with a fully equipped kitchen and living room. Throughout my stay, the service was exceptionally friendly, especially at breakfast where Zikhona made me feel welcome and Nompelo remembered how I liked my omelette. All in...

The Protea North Wharf is in a good location: near enough to walk to the V & A waterfront, close to bus stop, close to convention center, but in a quiet little alcove with some good restaurants (pizza place and turkish food) very close by. We started in a 1 BR unit. The second night our hot water went out,...

A good sized kitchen and dining area as well as a spacious sitting room. You could certainly use this hotel as a great base for a mixed self catering / hotel type...

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...
