We stayed in the Protea for a couple of nights last week in one of the standard rooms. Our room was spacious, decorated nicely, the staff were welcoming and helpful and the location was perfect. We would recommend this hotel to all.

We stayed here for one night as part of a school hockey and netball tour to South Africa. This is a really lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, warm, cosy, with very comfy beds and great food. We were all made to feel so very welcome here and would have loved to have stayed on for an extra night or two! Brilliant all round!

My wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel for a well deserved break from the city. The stay was FANTASTIC, the staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one.

Hotel offers a selection of services plus secure parking for your vehicle. Located in the middle of town, near great restaurants and deep in the Cape's famous wine region.

Thank you Douglas (GM) and team for a great stay!

me and my girlfriend stayed from the 7th of july - 9th and it was CLASS. from the ladys at reception who organised our horse-riding and wine tours (which was unreal) to the bar men in the cock-tail bar and basically all the staff in the hotel............they were Excellent to say the least. If i go back to south africa, i will be going back to the Protea Hotel for sure. Franschhoek is a pretty cool spot as well.

Room Tip: rooms on the top floor for a better view

This hotel offers good value for money being walking distance to all the main attractions and restaurants in town, however if you prefer small guest houses then this hotel is not for you. If you want to be guarenteed of quality though and not be over charged this hotel is a safe option, just make sure you don't get a room that is in the front facing the road as these rooms can be quite noisy. Protea Hotels are known for their high standards of service for a mid market hotel group in SA.

We stayed at the Protea hotel for 3 nights.The hotel is well positioned in the central area of the town on the main road.all shops and resturants are within walking distance and one can find almost any of the general amenities close by.The hotel staff are very friendly and helpfull throughout.We stayed in a junior suite and the two rooms were large and spacious with an on suite bathroom.We never had any meals at the hotel as there are so many resturants in town that we decided to try them out..We enjoyed our stay,Thanks

We had an excellent stay at the Protea Hotel in Franschhoek. The rooms are neat, spacious and clean. It was the best value for money make no mistake, it is a beautiful hotel and all the shops are in walking distance. The lady from housekeeping is a special person and made us feel welcome from the start. The other staff were very friendly. I can strongly recommend this hotel.
