We booked a superior room and got one with a lovely view of the Waterfront. It was really spectacular to sit on the balcony at night and enjoy the view. We arrived late and ordered room service. There is a complete kitchenette with tea and coffee making facilities as well. The food was fine for what we needed. The room...

The spacious suites facing the Waterfront are well worth it.The suite was perfect and very spacious and the Staff were super friendly and helpful.The wifi works splendidly and was free. The street is a bit noisy from the street down stairs but the views make up for it and it calms down at night.

The Cape Castle is on the Main Road in Green Point near the stadium and very close to Victoria Wharf. It is centrally located to go anywhere. While Main Road is a multi-lane and busy thoroughfare, it has a wide center island with plantings, benches for relaxing, and a pedestrian pathway so that you do not have to worry about...

I stayed for 6 nights recently on my business trip. I chose this place as the Protea group has joined Marriott's partner hotels. The location is easy to access and I was able to go do my work easily. But getting a Taxi was a bit tricky during the evenings. The room was good, clean and well kept, with a...

General: This review is based on a booking of a minisuite with sea view. The conclusion is that the Protea Cape Castle hotel is a clean hotel with friendly staff and a spacious and modern room with a nice view. However the main feeling is that the Protea Cape Castle hotel is not a four star, but more a three...

The entire portfolio of Protea hotels was recently acquired by Marriott. They don't have Marriott flags yet but there are using Marriott's reservation system. The hotels are average but you will notice that you are not staying at a Marriott. Getting there & checking in: The hotel is ~ 20-30 minutes from the airport. We called the hotel in advance...

The location is very convenient to the Waterfront, and there are good restaurants and shops nearby. Accommodations are comfortable, and the "standard" rooms are more than adequate for a couple or three. Kitchenette was also more than adequate. The staff was generally helpful, and really rose to the occasion when we had a problem. But there is one big negative:...
