Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Waterfront Breakwater Lodge
Ranked #62 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We have stayed her twice now. It is strange with the mix of college and hotel especially in the part of the hotel with the breakfast room but it really is not a problem. We had a deluxe room overlooking the waterfont area where the red tourist bus leaves from.The room had a king size bed with very fresh bedding, and was comfortably larger than the standard room we had first time. There was a bath and shower, although with the water shortage, baths are not recommended. The breakfast buffet has a good selection. It suits us for our first few nights in South Africa, before we hit the road. For early arrivals the reception team do attempt to get you in earlier than the 1400 check-in time, which is greatly appreciated. The location could not be better for walking to the Waterfront and Green point.

We styed here for the week-end in December, the hotel appears to be well managed and the staff very friendly and helpful. We only eat breakfast one morning and were quite happy with the food. The rooms we were allocated was a good size, the bed was comfortable and the shower was good.

Fantastic location and easy access to V&A. The rooms however are tiny, so probably not great for more than a night or two.

Breakfast buffet was great. Wifi was good too. Probably more geared at a corporate traveler.

charme..well the ex prison is different but not. Some spectacular vciews to Table Mountain help overcome the squeese feeling if you on the inside rooms. The ones with the views are awsome. Walking distance to all what matters...

Dear rainerschimpf2016,

Thank you for the time taken to inform us of your stay at our hotel.

The Breakwater Lodge is a hotel with a difference, in that we have some wonderful history dating back to 1859, when the prison was originally built. We are also very fortunate to be located in the infamous V & A Waterfront, which is within walking distance of the Wharf and some of the major tourist attractions in and around Cape Town.

You mention that you felt a bit squashed while staying in our rooms. Our hotel comprises of 7 different room types and if you are not happy with the room allocated to you on arrival, you are most welcome to ask our friendly Front Desk TEAM for an upgrade, and if availability allows, they will gladly accommodate your request.

We do have some spectacular views, and we trust you enjoyed the views while having breakfast in our restaurant.

Thank you once again for your review.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel when you next visit Cape Town.

Yours in hospitality,
Colin Naiker
