눉As is expected of a chain hotel, the room are a bit small. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by frosted glass only which can be a bit disconcerting when using the toilet. There is free inroom WIFI and the signal in our room (near reception) was quite good, but it took time for the login page to come up and sometimes it didn't, so we couldn't always use it. As our breakfast wasn't in the room rate, the breakfast receptionist made us wait behind those whose was before allowing us to pay, despite that it took the same time to serve them - found this very rude
눇I usually prefer independent hotels over chain hotels as they have character and bring something different, but the Breakwater has the best of both worlds - the comfort and standards of the Protea group, but it has real character in that it is partly an old prison and also shares space with the UCT business school. Really something different from the standard chain hotel. It is located within very easy walking distance of the V&A Waterfront, and is probably the cheapest option so close to the waterfront. We also walked to the Long Street restaurant and de Waterkant areas - bit further but a nice walk. The breakfast was not included in our room rate and seemed a little pricey (there are other options at the waterfront that are cheaper), but the spread is really good and we kept coming back despite the price. House keeping staff are very friendly and got the room very clean while we were at breakfast! Front desk was very efficient and friendly

눉Our internet connection was unstable to the point of frustration. There were periods of time when half our party was unable to do what they came to do. The staff was always helpful, it was just frustrating to suddenly lose our connection and the related work or messages with it...
눇Excellent service! Great value for the money, if the rooms had been more expensive the lack of stable internet would have caused us to find accommodations elsewhere.
