Hotel in prime tourist district

Posted Sep 15, 2016
Pros: Location - on the V & A waterfront. The Citysightseeing Tours office was across the road.
Cons: Wi-fi access Noise insulate the rooms next to the gym or relocate it - not a kindness to anyone in rooms close by or probably below.
Location: See sightseeing ideas on appropriate Cape Town webistes
The hotel was recommended by South African parents of our son-in-law, The booking for a double bed was not honoured as twin beds were in the room provided. This was not a problem. The real frustration was that we were given a room next door to the gym. It was scheduled to open at 06.30 hrs, but was used from just before 06.00 hrs by two, with a third appearing shortly afterwards, causing sleep degradation due to the thumping and pounding from the rowing and running apparatus being used. Those in the gym refused to go and indeed ignored us. The reception staff were apologetic but ineffective in getting them to leave, but very readily agreed to change our room ( this turned out to be to a different building) and had the luggage delivered there by the time we came back from our trips around Cape town in the evening. There were also access to Wi Fi issues as it seemed that every time that a computer/I phone was closed down a new registration had to be made to gain access. the access code (not the simple one indicated on the instructions, was changed daily which meant repeat contact with reception.

A well located oasis.

We loved our stay at the Protea Breakwater Lodge! The staff was extremely nice and helpful and the location was incredible. We easily walked to the V&A Waterfront every single day and sometimes even for dinner after a long day out exploring other areas. Since we were there for several days, we really appreciated that the room had a couch and coffee table (footrest) to create a small sitting area. When we went to other neighborhoods, since walking at night can be a safety concern in SA, we took Uber and were thrilled that the cars were never more than a couple minutes away. We loved our stay and definitely recommend this hotel!

房间太小,显得压抑,算是中规中矩的三星酒店。

Service was good, room changed on request. Shower separated from bathroom was an unusual arrangement. Easy walk to Waterfront and other tourist attractions. Breakfast NOT included in price of accommodation.

Great location for all the Cape Town attractions

Posted Apr 19, 2016
Adjacent to V&A waterfront so perfect location to pick up trips to all the myriad attractions of this great city. No proper bar and an extremely average restaurant let it down, as does the administration. We had paid in full in advance but we're told they had no record of this at check in time. I had fortunately taken the receipt so could prove otherwise. No good!
