My feedback on the features is as follows:

1. Location is good - short walk from the seafront and reasonable walk (20 minutes or so) from Camps Bay. Taxi to/from Victoria waterfront only around 60 rand

2. Friendliness is excellent - all staff friendly and helpful - good level of service

3. Value for Money is good - bar prices seemed very reasonable relative to UK hotel prices

4. Cleanliness is excellent - all areas were kept very clean

5. Overall impression is good - reasonable location and reasonable value - I would certainly consider staying at the Protea Hotel President in future.

I loved staying at this hotel, nice views and very relaxed. We did not want to stay in the city centre nor at the Waterfront, too many people. This hotel is located in Banty Bay which met our requirements.

The accommodation is comfortable, yet affordable. The Senate Bar served some of my favourite cocktails that I enjoyed as the sun set down behind the sea.

Good hotel at ok price. Nice location in close distance to ocean in Seapoint / Greenpoint.

The service was good, room nice and what a fantastic introduction when we got to the room they delivered snacks. The access to all places in Cape Town is just great from this hotel. Stayed with the family and the rooms provide enough space for all to be happy.

I would say: good leisure and business hotel at ok cost.

Thanks, Glen Morrow

I had a very enjoyable stay here. I would recommend only the seafacing rooms, much nicer. My kids had lots of fun at the pool while we enjoyed the terrace from where the ocean can be seen. The staff looked after us well.

Tip: if you have no own car or rental car, then transport is a problem as you rely on taxis. This hotel is not on the beach, not on the ocean and not at the V&A Waterfront. So in any directions, one would need to drive. With a car, no problem.
