Highs Very friendly staff and generously sized rooms/apartments - we also had a separate kitchen and lounge area. The hotel is very centrally located and made it brilliant to walk the main road when ever we wanted. Everything is really close by. Lows Breakfast options was a bit limited and coffee was served cold. Rooms could have been stocked with...

If you want to visit Franschoek for the fine dining and wine, this is the perfect hotel for you - great location, easy walking distance to a number of great restaurants. Very clean and comfortable.

The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable.. room no 3 is a big room , very comfortable, with a door to a balcony over looking the pool and mountain view., staff was very friendly.. we even made use of the two bicycles for an early morning cycle. An amazing breakfast, what you would expect from a four star hotel.

Franschoek is absolutely stunning and the Protea Hotel is ideally positioned and set up to enjoy the winelands of the Western Cape. The Protea Hotel is a short stroll to the shops and restaurants on the Main St. Rooms were large and well acquainted. Breakfast offered a good range. WiFi connection was a bit patchy.

The hotel was quite nice and clean. The rooms were spacious enough. There was a nice outdoor pool in the middle of the hotel buildings. The hotel was noisy. The rooms on the streetside were not nice because there were lorries driving under the window.
