Protea Hotel Cape Town Mowbray
Ranked #79 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 3 January 2018 via mobile

The hotel is well situated close to the airport and a short drive to the Waterfront and the city centre. Very good for families, it has a small pool (cold when we were there because it was very windy), a trampoline and some other games for kids in the interior courtyard. Breakfast was good.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled with family

This hotel excelled from the moment we checked to our departure 4 days later, the suite we had was spacious and comfortable with its own lounge area and a small kitchen with microwave. The breakfast in the morning was well above average. I consider this hotel one of the best I have stayed in the last 10 years.

Room Tip: Choose a suite, it comes at a very reasonable price.

We were aware that this was a Marriott Category 1 hotel but as we were traveling for 28 hours all we wanted was a clean place to sleep and breakfast in the morning. We were very pleasantly surprised with our lovely "apartment". Our rooms were very clean and our bed was very comfortable. Our Porter brought us to our room and showed us the amenities he was very professional.

We had an excellent breakfast buffet in the morning and we were very refreshed for our first African experience.

I would recommend the hotel as it is very peaceful in the heart of town and a good value.

I loved the rooms, the restaurant service was great. However, on arrival, i asked about the hotel to confirm I was at the right place. One of the front desk clerks said no. Am not sure if this was a prank or not. The following morning, on my way past the reception from breakfast, i was accosted by the front desk clerk who wanted to check if I owed money and if I was going to check out - her explanation was people often left without paying. In my 20 years of living abroad, I had never been treated like a potential criminal even in the whitest of European countries. To have this happen to me on African soil left a very sour taste in my mouth. I will definitely tell UCT not to place a visiting professor in this hotel.

I was in Cape Town for a seminar, and we were put up in the Mowbray Protea Hotel for a night. I must admit, while I had seen photographs of the hotel online, I was more concerned with how the hotel was managing the water crisis currently gripping the city. The hotel itself is lovely and the suites are spacious and quiet. Water usage is managed by means of a little shower rock that flashes either green, orange or red, to help you minimise/control your water consumption. The greater part of the responsibility is up to the guest though. The restaurant at the hotel is great as well, and definitely worth trying too. All in all, a lovely and comfortable place, that's close enough to everything you need to see while there. It's just super important that guests work with the hotel to save water wherever possible.
