Our bedroom was spacious. Breakfast was good.
New year's eve party food was not great and we were told we would see waterfront fireworks but in reality they were round the corner so partial view.
location Helpful staff Clean
room small Bed short (particularly if you are 1.95m like me!)
No swimming pool and don't offer beach towels
The best thing about this hotel is that it was near the Waterfront - if that matters to you- and secure onsite parking.
In a 38 day road trip around South Africa- this was the slowest check-in at the end of a long drive, with staff that seemed poorly trained in Reception skills and customer orientation. This is not really a leisure hotel - it's basically designed as a dorm for the Business School- so space is highly compromised and you can't swing a cat in the double rooms- it's extremely compact but probably functions well for the Business School students. To get a coffee in the morning- we had to walk through three buildings.
Not much, only location was good.
Within campus premises. Rooms are very small, even the business suite we booked Washing machine and dryer in the lobby of each floor operating 7.00-20.00 so it is VERY noisy. We asked to be moved but they said it was not possible. The lady at the front desk was totally incompetent. So very expensive for what they offer Will never repeat and never recomend.
Great location and value for money.
WiFi signal was very poor in the room.
PIGEON HOLE ROOM ROOM WAS NOT READY AT 15H30 MINUTE BED NEVER AGAIN
The staff didn't seem to know how to generate invoices with the details I required eg VAT number and Company names in the right spaces
Great location. Extremely nice staff. I felt very welcome. They showed to be willing to learn and improve (they handled my feedback in a very kind and professional way).
Cleanliness of the room was an issue. But my feedback was handled very well, and I trust they will have taken action on this by the time this feedback is published. I tend to find the prices a bit high.
The hotel is contemporary, clean with good facilities, & strong links with university & hospitality training for young people
Wifi very slow, and having to get a different access code each day... Price of breakfast meant we did not actually eat in the hotel, which may have been a missed opportunity
location is convenient, a little hard to work out best walking route to the waterfront esp with a baby pram as lots of stairs, however eventually worked out best to walk through uni, all the way to car park opposite City Sightseeing bus stop/ Aquarium and take the lift to ground floor. Friendly staff, comfortable beds. Family room a little unusual layout, but we weren't intending on spending much time in our room anyway and all basic amenities provided. This was a short stay, but Protea proved a good hotel, ideal spot for sightseers and those who want ease of access to Waterfront, restaurants, shops and all the tourist'y' things that one could want.
Great location, friendly staff.
Room in old jail wing was disappointing, looked dated and institutional compared to similar family room in main section of the hotel.
Nothing fantastic place miss it already
Walk to all facilities, shops etc
No swimming pool
Walking distance from waterfront
Spa is not up to standard and therapist need more training Rooms is tiny but we just needed a clean bed and room ... So happy with that
Close to waterfront
Very small rooms
Hotel Location Rooms
The Lift (too small) No Pool (would be nice) Poor Bar Area WiFi, having to change Username every 24 hours was very inconvenient.
It would have been great if there had been a pool
the location is excellent if you plan to frequently venture out to V&A Waterfront
the family room was made up of 2 tiny rooms with no space for luggage - no ambience - wifi code changes daily and needs to be reentered after every session - short beds - noisy
The comfortable bed, location to the V and A waterfront
The rooms were too small and in the bathrooms, there was no room to put anything, just to small.
Not much, wasn't too far from V and A
Staff was rude, bored, unhelpful, ac and Internet don't work, it's a crummy hotel
Loved the location right on the edge of the Waterfront. We got upgraded from a family room to 2 rooms - one being a business suite...so grateful. Also, front desk manager was excellent in resolving an overcharge for NYE dinner
Hotel feels a bit basic as it is linked to the business school and room location required walking through the school. However, for the price and location, this was not an issue
Hotel is clean Staff is friendly Location perfect Hassle free stay
Wifi not fast. Apart from that I liked everything and will recommend this Hotel as result of value.
the cold feeling and the fact that it shared facilities with the UCT MBA program.
#Location - You are literally 2 mins walking distance from the buzzing V&A waterfront #History - They've done a great job converting what was a prison into a University Campus / Hotel. Living here is itself a unique experience #Food - Great breakfast buffet! Some good a la carte stuff for dinner as well. Beautiful seating outside in the morning for breakfast. Fantastic way to start the day!
#Wifi! - Unfortunately poor signal / connectivity for WIFI. Cumbersome process to log on and input a long username/password which changes everyday! Not fun for those who need their net access…. #Drinking Water in the rooms - not a big deal but there wasn't drinking water when i first checked in and on subsequent days there wasn't sufficient replenishment of water…
