Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge Cape Town
3 out of 5

We had a 3-4 person room. As you entered the room shower was on your right and toilet on the left. Both behind heavynsmoked glass doors. We had two rlooms. One room had two single beds the other had a double bed. Each room had a small tall closet, safe, refrigerator, coffee pot and.desk. The beds were fine for me as I prefer a firm bed. The shower water could get as HOT as you could handle. Our room was kept clean by the staff. Locations was excellent as it was within walking distance to the waterfront which we visited every night. There is security in the parking lot so your rental car is safe all night. Internet is Wifi but not free. Not expensive. But is purchased by the minutes. Be careful it will run down time if you do not logout. The Buffett breakfast is nice but expensive at 135 rand. I would suggest you walk to the waterfront where you can eat a good breakfast for about 50-70 rand. I felt safe in Cape town. There is lots of security. A modest police presence. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Friendly accommodating staff, and safe, quiet clean hotel. Interestingly located within UCT school of business grounds, but recommended for on the go business travelers, and tourists new to Cape Town. Short 5-7 min walk to V&A waterfront. Thanks for a great visit! Breakfast could be a bit cheaper, but local options readily available.

I found the hotel to be fine, in a great location situated just a 5 minute walk from both the Aquarium, the Waterfront,and thus all the top hotels, bars and restaurants associated with Cape Town. Due to this there is obviously a high security presence. Although I had read various reviews critical of this hotel, mainly due to the fact that the facilities are shared with a college, which also means that the restaurant/cafe is more like a student dining hall and with self-service. However, I didn't find this a problem and the food was adequate. I would definitely stay there again, especially if I was unable to pay the prices of the nearby hotels, which I am.

A convenient location for the Watefront and splendid views of Table Top and Signal Hill from breakfast terrace. Although rooms were quite basic for the price they were certainly more than adequate given the location. Staff were all extremely helpful and efficient - prompt delivery of phone messages and emails to room, together with asistance in locating nearest cinema. Only quibble was the price of breakfast!

Although we were a couple, we were put into a family suit (2 bedrooms with bathroom & lavatory) on our first night. We asked to change rooms the next day, we didnt need 2 bedrooms, and this was done for us. Good location and liked the ex-prison.
